The USB Type-C port has come to replace the micro-USB port and is available for mid-range smartphones. This new port is much better than its predecessor and it is not so good that most people don’t still know how good it is that they remain skeptical about the USB type.

In this guide, I’ll enlighten you on why you should get the new USB Type-C port. Just read on.

#1: It Loads Quicker

Unlike the micro-USB port, the Type-C port loads faster. This improvement in the new port was made by the USB Implementers Forum; they learned from the mistakes that are prevalent in the micro-USB and made a better specification for the Type-C. Type-C port chargers are faster and will charge your smartphone at 15 watts- that is approximately five times faster than the old port.

#2: It Copies Data and Faster

Most times, we want to share one file or the other from one smartphone to another or maybe to a pc. Are you tired of slow file transfer with the old port and want to send files faster?  Then you must know that if your smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow along with a Type-C port, then you’re ready to go. All you need to do is open your file explorer on the receiving device and select your file and send.

#3: Faster Charging

The Type-C port permits a power supply up to 100 watts using open, industry-standard power delivery that is limited only by the power supply, cable or the device which is being charged.

To reduce the common heat build-up and degrading in electronic components that occurs when charging, it is recommended you use a quality cord that is specified for the new Type-C port. PrimeCables USB type C cable makes quality connectors that meet the necessary port requirements.

The Type-C connectors also support backward and forward charging. This means you can define which direction the current flows; your smartphone could act as a power bank for other devices with the Type-C port connector.

#4: Audio and Video Transmission

If you didn’t know, the new Type-C port connectors are certified for many signals and protocols which include DVI, VGA, or HDMI. That is, you can use a Type-C connector to transmit audiovisual signals. Although, this requires the right software and hardware behind the port.

The Type-C port also works as a display port and has protocol conversion features. The Type-C jack adapter requires a digital audio converter that will be compatible with all of your Type-C devices.
