Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

Handy adapter to have on hand

By: macphoto197_01_02 - 01/20/2019
This is a great product to have when you buy a new computer using USB-C. It coverts a conventional USB-A to the new USB-C cable end. The adapter fits securely in place and feels snug so as not to fall off. Overall this is a solid adapter I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

The USB-A end (female) is too tight to fit

By: tallboarder - 10/30/2019
The USB-A end (female) is too tight to fit and the USB-A (male) connector won't fit all the way in so it couldn't make contact with the prongs. I had to go to my company's tech support to get a new one which allows the male connector to fit it, however, it's still not very smooth and it takes a lot of force to insert and extract.
