A USB Type-C charger is an industry-standard connector used to address the need for a wide range of display, data transmission, and charging applications. Whether you have larger devices like laptops or smaller ones like phones, you can charge and transfer data between them using a single cable.
Yes, you can usually charge your Surface with the USB-C port. However, we highly recommend using the charger that came with your Surface because the charging speed with a USB-C cable can be very slow, depending on the power supply and cable you're using.
Connect a USB-C charge cable or a display that provides power. If your Mac has USB-C ports, you can charge your Mac with a USB-C charge cable and a USB-C power adapter or with a USB-C or Thunderbolt display that provides power.
With charge and sync compatibilities, you can use this cable in multiple ways. The PDP Gaming USB Type C Charging Cable is officially licensed by Nintendo and can be used to charge your Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite, the Pro Controller, or even just your cell phone.
On the 14-inch MacBook Pro, you can fast charge with the following combinations of power sources and cables: 140W USB-C Power Adapter + USB-C to MagSafe 3 Cable or USB-C charge cable. 96W USB-C Power Adapter + USB-C to MagSafe 3 Cable or USB-C charge cable.
USB-C PD can charge your device up to 70% faster than standard 5W charging*. This means less time plugged in while your smartphone reaches 100% charged. When you're looking for an urgent battery boost, a quick 10-minute charge with USB-C PD might be all you need.
Yes. If the phone charger is a USB-C-based charger and your Lenovo laptop has a USB-C port, you can plug it into recharge. While it will charge your Lenovo laptop, it may recharge slower than using a dedicated laptop charger.
USB-C, also known as Type-C, is the latest connector developed by the USB Implementers' Forum (USB-IF), a group of industry leaders within the consumer electronics community, such as Apple, Intel, Dell, and Surface. As many of the world's most recognized manufacturers are supporting this new technology, it is likely to be widely adopted. With such support, USB-C will gradually replace previous USB types, including USB-A, USB-B and USB Mini-B. Plus, as future devices are equipped with the new USB-C port, which is smaller than its predecessors, it's likely these devices will also be thinner and lighter than ever before.
Like most new technology, it's an improvement on what came before - but we'll get to that in a minute
EASIER TO USE
It's been developed to be simpler to use, meaning no more moments of: "which way does it go?" "am I putting it in the right port?" "is it upside-down?"
HERE TO STAY
The cable of tomorrow is here today, and with such widespread support across the industry, the days of throwing your cable out every time you get a new device are over.
All the major tech companies including Apple, Google and Microsoft, are embracing USB-C, which means one day your mobile devices will be able to share accessories.
USB-C is smaller than its predecessors, which means USB-C devices like laptops and tablets, will likely be thinner and lighter.
It's really, really fast
USB-C can transfer data at up to 10Gbps (gigabits per second). Or an entire high definition feature-length movie in just 30 seconds. That's up to 20 times faster than USB2.0.
With up to 100 watts, or 3 amps of power, USB-C cables can power almost anything. From laptops to large high-resolution monitors, even some printers.
The 4K Ultra HD experience
USB-C cables can deliver Ultra-HD 4K video resolution to USB-C and HDMI displays. That's 4 times the resolution of standard high definition.
Bright Future of USB-C
USB-C isn't just a new development. It's a new standard. Which means that everything it promises — speed, ease of use, universality — can be applied to all sorts of devices. With this much potential, USB-C has another edge over existing USB cables: it'll be around for much longer.
Great Power behind USB-C
Mountains of defunct cables in landfills across the world motivated action for reform. Tech companies the world over responded to new European regulations that called for a standard connector. The USB-C connector is being widely adopted by manufacturers including Apple, Google and Microsoft. With such widespread support from these market-leading manufacturers, it's only a matter of time before the new standard becomes the norm.
The idea of new technology that embraces future proofing for environmental reasons is groundbreaking. At Sunshine, we are proud to be a part of this pioneering move toward an environmentally sustainable, tech-friendly future.
The USB-A has a much larger physical connector than the Type C, Type C is around the same size as a micro-USB connector. Unlike, Type A, you won't need to try and insert it, flip it over, and then flip it over once more just to find the right orientation when trying to make a connection.
iPhone models now include in the box a newer USB‑C to Lightning cable that supports fast charging and is compatible with USB‑C power adapters and computer ports that you might already have.
USB-C features a new, smaller connector shape that's reversible so it's easier to plug in. USB-C cables can carry significantly more power, so they can be used to charge larger devices like laptops. They also offer up to double the transfer speed of USB 3 at 10 Gbps.
