No worries, you’re a gentleman and have a USB Type-C Cable charger on standby. But be warned, not all USB Type-C Cables are created equal, and your charger could be shooting something much worse than blanks.
Lost in the determination to quickly charge your device to get back into action, your intentions can become detrimental if you are plugging in a dodgy USB Type-C Cable that can result in permanent damage to your device to the extent of completely frying it altogether.

To give any serious relationship a fair chance, understand the needs of your device by getting to know the body, brains & brawn of the Type-C cable it depends upon to promise “safe se…” Errrr…..service.”
The “Body” of USB Type-C Cable
Your sleek new device is thinner, and no longer fits into its old USB Type-A Cable wardrobe. The general population has been in a long- term relationship with the larger USB Type-A Cable that has remained unchanged, with weaker capabilities while also being a difficult connector that demands to be plugged in only one way.
The USB Type-C Cable has a new small connector that is reversible, letting you easily plug in your devices without a struggle. But don’t be distracted by the physical changes to the body structure, it also has brains & brawn.

The “Brains” of USB Type-C Cable
The USB Type-C Cable is reversible, meaning you will only need a single cable whether you’re connecting an external hard drive to your laptop or charging your smartphone from a USB charger. That one tiny connector is small enough to fit into a super-thin mobile device, but also powerful enough to connect all the exterior devices you desire into your laptop. The cable itself has USB Type-C connectors at both ends—it’s all one connector.
The “Brawn” of USB Type-C Cable
The USP Type-C Cable is bi-directional, so a device can either send or receive power delivery up to 100 watts. Not only can this kind of power delivery let you charge a laptop (which requires up to approx. 60 watts) but the power can be transferred at the same time the device is transmitting data across the connection.
Gone are the days where you need to juggle an awkward collection of differently shaped connectors, attempting to use and charge varied devices to meet all your needs. With a PrimeCables USB Type-C multi-port charging adapter, you’ll simultaneously sync all of your needs with satisfying efficiency.
Preventing Miscommunication leading to a “Break Up”
To prevent an expensive break up with your hot new device, you need to understand the “relationship incompatibilities” of mixing cables that won’t send the kind of sparks you are hoping for.
A major miscommunication issue that arises is with cables that feature a USB Type-C connector on one end, and an older USB connector such as the Type-A on the other end. Most devices are still currently using the USB Type-A port, which is the most common USB port with significantly less power. While it is the cable’s responsibility to make sure a device charging from it doesn’t try to pull too much power, in a poorly designed cable it lies to the device by communicating that it is attached to a charging path like the Type-C to Type-C Cable, and the device will attempt to draw power it is incompatible with. This electrical miscommunication will likely permanently damage the weaker device the Type-A end of the cable is plugged into.
Choose Quality Accessories for USB Type-C Cable
Now that the USB Type-C cable has given you a taste for higher standards, it’s here to stay and time to accessorize your device. While your upgrade isn’t high maintenance, it does require proper maintenance if you expect it to stick around. Before buying USB Type-C cables for your new devices, look up whether the cable is actually compliant with the USB-C specification.
To ensure you are purchasing quality USB Type-C Cables, the logical advice is to only trust a professional cable company who specializes in providing reliable, guaranteed top quality cable products such as PrimeCables.
