USB Type-C has the capability of integrating charge, sync, video and USB functions into a single port, but with all change comes a period of transition. Avoid the hassle and high cost of purchasing new peripherals by using IOGEAR's Charge & Sync USB-C to USB Type-A Adapter to stay connected to your current USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices with your new Type-C device. Simply plug the adapter into the USB Type-C port of your laptop to convert it into a USB-A port. Now you're ready to connect current devices like hard drives, flash drives, cameras, or a USB cable for syncing and charging a phone or tablet. Conveniently transfer your pictures, videos and music from existing USB accessories to your new MacBook at the speed of USB 3.0.
The New Universal Standard
USB Type-C is the latest universal standard in connectivity. If you've purchased the 2015 Apple MacBook or 2015 Chromebook Pixel , then you know that both feature brand new USB-C technology. Compared to earlier generations of USB connectors, USB-C has a slim profile connector to support ultra-thin laptops and tablets. Although USB-C has a low-profile design, it packs a big punch when it comes to speed and power, boasting data transmission speeds of up to 10Gbps and power transmission of up to 100W. And best of all, it's reversible to allow hassle-free connecting. The new standard fixes the age-old problem of connecting your USB in the wrong way, eliminating the frustration of fumbling with the USB plug when connecting it to a computer. The power and versatility of USB Type-C is paving the way for the future.
Built to Last
IOGEAR's premium adapters feature a durable, robust design to withstand frequent plugging and unplugging while simultaneously being extremely flexible. These cables are comprised of a top-grade braided-nylon fiber sleeve with anodized aluminum connectors for maximum durability and reliability. The cable is thicker than most with an outer diameter of 3.5mm to carry higher currents while still being compact enough to fit easily into your laptop case for easy storage and transportation.
