USB Type-C: simplifying life.

Simpler. Smarter.
USB Type-C is a hardware change, rather than an interface standard change (like USB 2.0 to USB 3.0). Type-C devices are easy to insert, being reversible. This symmetrical oval plug will replace Type A and B, respectively the rectangular plug found on such things as thumb drives, and that found to connect to power-drawing devices, like cell phones.

USB Type-C: One cable. One port. Done.

While USB Type-A and Type-B connectors prevail, the new USB Type-C connector has been released to gradually replace the others. In addition to the capabilities of power charging at up to 100 watts and video output (HDMI/ VGA/ DisplayPort), USB Type-C possesses two other features that differentiate it from USB Type-A and Type-B connectors.

Orientation and flexibility. First, USB Type-A and Type-B are non-reversible, meaning time wasted ensuring a correct plug-in. Second, they cannot be used across multiple platforms. But that's all changing, with the future-proof Type C standard marching toward ubiquity.

More flexible. Full compatibility.
With connectors simplified to a single type, USB Type-C allows for use across multiple platforms, meaning that you only need one cable for both PC and handheld devices. For example, Transcend JetFlash flash drives and card readers equipped with a USB Type-C connector allow free data transfers among various platforms without the need to worry about port shapes.
Considering the interface.

It's worth addressing the difference between USB interface standards and connector shape. USB connectors, regardless of type, can run with different USB interfaces, so you will see, for example, a USB Type-A cable running at USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 speeds. A reminder: USB 3.0 can reach its full speed potential only if your device supports USB 3.0.
