USB CABLES

Most of today’s electronic devices come with a USB connection which serves different purposes from charging the device to connecting it to a projector. Different types of USB cables have been developed each dedicated to a specific task. While there are numerous options and sellers to purchase from you should always look for someone with good ratings and status in the market.

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry standard developed to define the connection of computer peripherals to computers. This standard has become popular since its inception in the mid-1990s and is most preferred among the consumers. Many types of USB cables are available and it can become quite complicated to understand the use of each one of them. Here is everything you need to know about the cables.

TYPES OF CABLES

Numerous types of cables are available in the market which has laden a specific responsibility on them. Most common types of cables are discussed below:

Type-A Cables

This type is the most common type of connector and is at one end of the cable. Devices like keyboard, mouse have Type-A connector. Personal computers are equipped with multiple Type-A ports and it is also used for data transfer.

Type B

This is a square connector and is found in printers, scanner, and other such devices that connect to a computer.

Micro USB

This cable connector is literally found with everyone. It’s the current standard for mobile and portable devices. Only Apple is the one company who still has not accepted this form.

Mini USB

This came before the micro USB connectors and is smaller than the normal USB. It is used in cameras having non-standard connectors.

Type-C

These cables provide fast data transfer rate than any other USB cables. USB Type-C cables are taken up for laptops and smartphones too. The most important feature is this is a reversible type of USB cable and can both receive and provide more power than other USB versions.

Buying a Perfect USB Cable

Each person has a device that requires charging or, seldom data transfer. And each device has a USB port that demands a USB cable. Most of the smartphones, tablets, etc. require a micro-USB cable. It is natural to go for a cheaper USB cable and get the work done but it strongly advised to purchase a quality product and save yourself the headache of changing them again and again.

Another factor to consider is the length of the USB cable. Short length cables take less space but require you to sit next to the connected spot whereas a longer cable has a good chance of getting tangled. For charging purposes a three-foot long cable will be ideal. The cheap cables might not have a good protective covering which may lead to a fire on overheating. Therefore, it is always a better option to spend a little more and get a quality product from a trusted manufacturer. Purchase a USB cable that suits your needs at affordable rates and be assured of the quality.
