How many times have you inserted your USB cable the wrong way and cursed yourself? Infinite. We know, but that's about to change. The all new USB Type-C solves that and many other problems and has a plenty of reasons why we should switch to it as soon as possible. Here's why: Plug it in any way you want. The 'design' of the port has been changed and now you don't even have to worry putting it in the wrong way. Something we always longed for. Crazy data-transfer speeds. The new USB allows you to transfer your stuff at an amazing 10 Gbps! Which is around 10 times faster than the USB 2.0 and Google Fiber, also. Can do your Video-streaming. Need to stream a movie from your phone or tablet to your laptop? Well now you don't need a HDMI port or any other video-ports. This Type-c does it all. That too with an amazing speed. So you don't have to carry any HDMI at all in your trips. A sure plus. Doubles up as your Charger Cable. You heard it right, it can also work as your charger cable. That even the USB 2.0 is capable of, but when it comes to charging bigger devices like laptops, USB 2.0 fails. The new Type-C can deliver up to 100 watts of power which is more than enough to charge your laptop or notebook on the go. No need to carry your charger cable. Backwards Compatibility. It may a take a little while for the world to get used to it, so apart from the new Macbook and Chromebook Pixel 2 there may be other devices which is soon going to employ this new USB standard. So what if you need to transfer something from other devices? You can, with the same USB Type-C (USB 3.0) as it is backwards-compatible. You can use it with the old ports too, using an adapter, of course. Small and sleek. It is so small that it can allow the upcoming Notebooks or laptops to be more thin and sleek. Who wouldn't love that? It will allow the notebooks to be more versatile than your tablets, a straight undeniable advantage. So the end note is that the new USB Type-C or the USB 3.0 dominates its predecessor in all aspects, even though the power consumption of Type-c is a bit higher than the USB 2.0, it is clearly not a disadvantage. With the new all-in-one cable, you can say good-bye to your HDMI's and Charger cords. All you have to pack while going on some trip is this, the new USB Type-C.
