Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

USB 3.1 is the most recent version of the USB (Universal Serial Bus) standard for connecting computers and electronic devices. It is capable of data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, and while it can use the USB-C connector type, it can also use a variety of other connector types. To achieve USB 3.1 transfer speeds, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support USB 3.1. USB 3.1 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps). 

USB 3.0 is capable of data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps).

USB 3.1 is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, except in the following scenarios:

  • USB-B 3.1 cables are not compatible with USB-B 2.0 ports.
  • Unless you use an adapter, USB-C ports or cables will not work with USB-A or USB-B ports or cables.
  • Devices that require USB 3.1 transfer speeds of 10Gbps might not work with USB 3.0 or USB 2.0, or you might experience lower transfer speeds and impacted performance.
  • Bus-powered USB devices that requires more power than what USB 2.0 can provide are not compatible with USB 2.0.

(5 stars) Welcome addition to the go-bag!

By:
Full speed transfer, solid build. Great for charging phones, data transfer, adding USB-C devices, etc. The connectors are solid (unlike some "off-brand" versions I bought online)--no wiggle, no loose fit on the USB-C side... If you have compatibility problems, look at the USB-C device you are connecting, NOT this cable! I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Older devices want to play too!

By:
This cable allowed me to connect several USB-C devices to a non-equipped USB-C Laptop. I knew going into it that some devices might not work, and certainly not all the features, but was pleased that my docking station and charging Hub which had USB-C connectivity connected just fine and worked perfectly. Excellent build quality on the cable is what I come to expect, and the length is perfect for docking stations, etc. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

(5 stars) Good Simple Cable

By:
I have tested this cable on different cell phones connected with different PCs as well as USB charging adapters. The cable works well and fast. The cable comes in a typical zip-lock bag that most StarTech cables come in. It is thicker and more firm than other USB-C cables I have used. The cable feels like it will last a long time. The cable works very fast when transferring data and it had no problems when charging with different quick charge adapters. This is a good cable that works as advertised. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
