What is USB Type C?

USB-C is the latest version of the common USB (universal serial bus) connector introduced by the USB-IF organization. It uses a compact and reversible, 24-pin connector that fits on thin smartphones and notebooks with Android™, Chrome OS™, Windows® or Mac® operating systems.

USB C ports are found on new release smartphones, computers and tablets for home and business needs. Depending on your equipment, a USB Type-C port can support transferring files, charging, connecting to the Internet or adding an external video display.


How USB C charging works

The USB-IF organization specifies power profiles for safely powering and charging a smartphone, laptop, or other equipment from 7.5 to 100 watts over USB-C. USB C power delivery (PD) communicates in both directions between the host device and the connected equipment and charger.

USB C devices can be charged from:

  • USB-A or USB-C wall charger
  • USB-A or USB-C car charger
  • Host computer with USB C
  • Docking station or multiport adapter with USB C
  • Cable Matters offers a product line of car and wall chargers for a smartphone, tablet or computer with USB-C.


    Which USB C cables are safe?

    Cable Matters, a member of the USB-IF organization, follows strict guidelines for designing and testing all our USB-C products. A USB C charger can also be used with a USB C to Micro B or USB C to Lightning charging cable.

    Tips for safely charging your valuable devices with USB-C:

  • Buy a USB C with 56K resistor cable when charging over USB-A or USB Micro-B
  • Use an intelligent USB C charger or USB-A wall and car charger with over-voltage protection
