The USB-C connection is going to overtake and eventually replace the standard USB 2.0 technology. The newest MacBook models have only USB-C ports so it’s only a matter of time until this becomes mainstream technology.

But there is one question on the mind of many technology users, and especially laptop owners: ‘Where can I buy a USB-C universal receiver”?

In this article, we’re going to answer that question and offer you more information about this device.

USB-C universal receiver: Everything you need to know

There are many USB-C to USB adapters that you can use but they usually stick out too much from the side of the laptop, as users report:

Regular USB ports are disappearing. Logitech needs to have a USB-C unifying receiver and adapters aren’t a good solution because they stick out an inch from the side of the laptop. ONE MISTAKE where it catches something (a wall, the side of furniture, or anything else) and the laptop jack will be destroyed and most of the time that will take out the other USB-C jacks on that side of the laptop as well.

However, there is no USB-C universal receiver currently available on the market. But the good news is that hardware manufacturers acknowledged the need for such a device and will release it in the near future.

When exactly? Well, we can’t really answer that question either: it could be a few months, a year or even more. However, judging by the current trend and the number of user requests, we dare say that in one year’s time, USB-C universal receivers will be available everywhere.
