USB-C to USB-A Cable 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. IOGEAR’s Charge & Sync Flip_ Pro USB-C to Reversible USB-A Cable makes this transition easier by allowing you to connect all your USB-C devices such as the new MacBook and Chromebook_ Pixel to standard USB-A devices.The New Universal Standard USB Type-C is the latest universal standard in connectivity. If you’ve purchased the 2 15 Apple MacBook or 2 15 Chromebook Pixel  then you know that both feature 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 1 Gbps and power transmission of up to 1 W. 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.Connect your USB-C devices to USB-A devices. If you have purchased a new USB-C laptop or device you are probably having a hard time using it with your other standard USB devices (hard drives chargers etc.). With the Charge & Sync Flip Pro USB-C to Reversible USB-A Cable you’ll be able to do just that. The cable supports data transfer as well as charging output rates of up to 3A. With this cable your USB-A devices are now compatible with USB-C ports.Charge your USB-C Laptop. With a multitude of charging ports seen across the many laptops and brands today USB-C sets out to standardize them all with a single connection. Today in order to keep laptops charged while on-the-go most people will carry their laptop’s AC power adapter with them wherever they go. This is not always the best option as electrical outlets are not always available for use especially if you’re travelling. This is why having mobile battery packs such as the IOGEAR 8 mAh and 16 mAh Mobile Power Station is convenient – they are able to charge devices when conventional AC outlets are unavailable.
