USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ : The Next Evolution
The new USB-C connector is being widely adopted by manufacturers such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft. Along with the new connector and port combination, there is a new standard called USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+. The USB-C cables comply with the European regulations calling for a universal connector for charging mobile phones. This means that soon, almost everything, everywhere, will be powered, charged and connected by USB-C cables.
The new USB-C (AKA USB Type-C) connector is a new size and shape, and is easier to use than previous USB cables. The reversible design lets you plug in your device in any direction, so you never have to worry about plugging in your cable incorrectly. This will allow manufacturers to design devices that are thinner and lighter than ever before.
As the new USB-C port is adopted by laptop, tablet, hub, and computer manufacturers, the need for new USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ cables will grow. Belkin will offer an entire USB-C product range to accommodate all of your needs.
