The problem of USB Type-C cable compatibility

Posted on Thursday, November 10 2016 @ 14:27:13 CET by

When we first heard about the USB Type-C standard it sounded awesome but while the port itself is more convenient due to the reversible design, the big problem is there are now all sorts of USB Type-C cables that support a wide range of features and capabilities, making it quite complex to figure out what you need. Furthermore, there are a lot of shoddy cables on the market that can destroy your hardware, making it a necessity to do your due diligence before buying a new cable. ExtremeTech wrote a niece piece about the USB Type-C problem over here.
Each one of these cables has a different set of capabilities, and the differences aren’t necessarily apparent to people who aren’t fluent in technology. Up until now, you’ve generally been able to buy USB cables and adapters based solely on price, safe in the assumption that a USB 3.0 cable is a USB 3.0 cable. Now, that’s no longer the case.
