Due to its reversible design and wide range of features, the USB Type C connector has become the most favored interface for electronic devices in recent years. You can use one USB-C cable for all your different devices without worrying about plugging it correctly. Since USB Type C is so popular, what devices are using it?
Before we get into the devices that use the USB Type C connector, it's essential to know that the USB Type C connector isn't always what it seems. Like other versions of the USB connector, there are non-standard types of USB Type C. USB C ports typically use the USB 3.1 standard but can use the older USB standard or another popular and influential standard, Thunderbolt 3.
Both standard USB-C ports and Thunderbolt 3 ports are widely used today - and will only continue to be so as time goes on. Thunderbolt 3 ports are more versatile than standard USB-C ports. Thunderbolt 3 ports work with all USB devices - but USB ports do not work with all Thunderbolt 3 devices. Now that we understand the different forms that USB-C can take, let's move on to our topic: which devices use the USB Type C connector?
USB Type C ports are widely used and can be found in many different devices, whether they use the USB 3.1 standard or the Thunderbolt 3 standard.
One of the most apparent devices is the computer. Modern desktops and laptops use USB-C ports, which means they can be used with different types of peripherals. Keep in mind that not all USB-C ports are created equal. Some laptops use USB-C for charging only, while some use USB-C for charging and data. Transferring data via USB-C also includes connecting to a wired Ethernet via an adapter, as most USB-C computers are thin and do not have a standard Ethernet port. Many thin and light laptops use the USB-C port to connect to external displays in addition to charging and data because it is slimmer than older video ports such as VGA and HDMI. High-end computers often have a Thunderbolt 3 port instead of a direct USB port. Thunderbolt 3 ports work with USB devices, making them more versatile. These features can be implemented on a single USB-C port with the right docking station or multi-port adapter.
While these may be the primary devices that use USB-C ports, a variety of other devices will use USB-C. For example, many recent external battery packs and power adapters have USB-C ports but are only used to charge smartphones and laptops, not for any data transfer. USB-C is also making its presence felt in the automotive industry and will begin to become a common charging standard in vehicles.
Any product device that uses Micro USB or USB-A can use the USB Type C port. Devices such as wireless mice, keyboards, speakers, and smart home devices are already available today that use USB-C ports, and in the future, it is believed that most will use USB-C ports for power and data transfer.
Of course, many other devices use the USB C port, so that we won't name them all, but in the future, if you ask, "What devices can use the USB Type C port?" The answer will be straightforward: everything!
There's a reason so many devices use USB-C for power. USB-C can transfer more power than previous versions of USB, so larger devices such as laptops can be powered via USB-C. USB-C supports up to 100 watts to power larger devices such as laptops. The old USB interface standard only supported 5V charging, which might be enough to charge a pair of headphones or a cell phone, but that's about it.
Other devices use USB-C to add ports and features to your computer. On laptops with only USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports, you may need to add additional ports for older peripherals or other connections. This is where USB-C hubs and docking stations come in handy. With hubs, you can add ports like HDMI ports, Ethernet ports, older USB ports, and more through a single USB-C connection. Some adapters allow you to convert multiple port types using USB-C ports easily.
USB Type C Connector is currently the most popular interface in the electronic device market and will occupy a larger market in the future. All electronic device manufacturers should combine their products with a USB Type C interface as soon as possible to occupy the market in advance.
