What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB (Universal Serial Bus) connections are one of the most versatile types of connection available. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices.

Four versions of USB currently exist, with different maximum transfer speeds: USB 3.1 (up to 10GB/s), USB 3.0 (5GB/s), USB 2.0 (480MB/s) and USB 1.1 (12MB/s). In most cases, cables are compatible across all versions – but maximum transfer speed may still be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 480MB/s, not 5GB/s. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

Why use this USB 3.1 C(M) to A(F) adapter?
This adapter will allow you to convert a USB 3.1 USB A connection directly into a USB-C connection. This means that you can convert a standard USB A plug into a USB C plug and connect it directly into a new USB C socket on a laptop, desktop, Mac or power supply. This enables you to keep using your existing cables between two generations of technology (USB A and USB C) on your devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted. I bought a Dell XPS15 laptop and was sorry to realize that I had two high-speed USB ports and one high-speed one that I wouldn't have much use for. This adapter does the job: it just lies out 14cm from the PC and gives me a third high-speed USB port.
