The USB-C cable was birthed from the struggle of having different cable connectors to plug into different devices or computers. Thus it trumps the USB-A and USB-B cable types in many ways.

First, its connector is small meaning you can plug into any computer or device that has the USB-C port. Recent versions of computers come with this port,  so you’ll only need one cable for both your computer and device. It is powerful enough to handle any device or computer.

The second advantage the USB-C has is it has a high-speed charge rate of up to 100 watts so it can power multiple devices without the need for a separate power source.

The USB-C cable is also reversible so you can connect it from either end, without worrying whether you plugged it in the wrong way. Its hassle free!

Lastly, the USB-C cable comes with small connectors on both ends, so there will be no need for a USB-C to USB-A, or USB-C to USB-B cable. Whichever way you plug it in, it will work.
