USB Type-C to USB Type-A Cable Connects a USB-C Mobile Device to Your Computer This USB Type-C to Type-A cable allows you to connect a device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port to a USB-enabled computer, charger, hard drive or other peripheral for the purpose of charging, powering, syncing or transferring data. It is compatible with any device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port, including tablets, smartphones, MacBooks, Ultrabooks and Chromebooks. The three-foot cord is perfectly suited for use with Tripp Lite charging stations and carts. Transfers Data and Charges Devices at Fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 Speeds The USB Type-C to USB-A cable supports USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. It also provides power output up to 3 amps (60 watts), which is sufficient for fast-charging, syncing and powering most devices. The cable is backward compatible with previous USB generations, allowing you to use it with older equipment. Reversible USB-C Connector Attaches in Either Direction Unlike traditional USB cables that connect in only one direction, the reversible USB-C male connector plugs into a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port in either direction for a fumble-free connection every time. Right-Angle USB-C Plug Makes Connecting in Tight Spaces Easier The space-saving right-angle USB-C plug is easy to install in confined spaces, such as behind your computer desk or workstation. The right-angle construction also relieves strain on the cable and connector and prevents the cable from bending awkwardly.
