One side plugs into the USB-C port in your computer or phone. The other side is a standard USB-A port allowing you to connect all those everyday USB devices you own and love. The casing is high quality aluminum.
USB-C is the primary connection port on an increasing number of devices. Apple is now using it on many of their notebooks and there is speculation they will on iPhones in the future. Many Android devices already use USB-C. This type of connection offers great benefits. It can carry power for charging, works at very fast speeds, and there is no ‘up’ or ‘down’ orientation to the connection.
