Physically, the Type-C port and connector is about the same size as that of the Micro-B USB mentioned above. A Type-C port measure just 8.4mm by 2.6mm. This means it's small enough to work for even the smallest peripheral devices. With Type-C, a USB cable's both ends will be the same, allowing for reversible plug orientation. You also don't need to worry about plugging it in upside down.
That being said, I spent much of yesterday using it as my USB battery pack cable to keep my Nexus 6 phone powered up while I biked around playing Pokémon Go and Ingress, and didn’t have any problems with it. It was especially convenient on the go being able to unplug and replug the cable without having to worry about whether I had it in the “right way.” At six feet long, it’s the longest USB cable I own, and there was ample room to connect it to the handlebar-mounted phone without worrying that it might get yanked out if I turned the handlebars too sharply.
Today, USB is truly a ‘Universal’ standard and you’d be hard-pressed to find an electronic device that doesn’t have a USB port of one kind or another. But how do you know which USB cable will fit your device? Hopefully this buying guide will help you find the cable that you need for your next project.
Not all devices use standard USB cables mentioned above. Instead, some of them use a proprietary design in the place of the Type-B plug and connector. The most famous example of these devices are the iPhone and the , where either a 30-pin or lightning connector takes place of the Type-B end. The Type-A end, however, is still the standard size.
