USB Type-C to micro-USB adapter

Buying a cable for the USB Type-C connector does not always solve the problem, because at your disposal there may be wires with a micro-USB plug, designed to connect to completely specific devices. In this case, it is better to get an adapter. For very little money, you can purchase such an adapter from Huawei . This is a small accessory that plugs into the USB Type-C connector and provides the ability to connect any cable with a micro-USB plug to it.

The adapter is approximately 21 mm long. The tiny accessory turned out to be reliable, small and very useful. Such an adapter should be in the desk drawer of every owner of modern electronics!

If you are thinking about buying such a cable, we recommend that you pay attention to products from TOPK. Such an accessory has a short wire with a fabric braid, which makes it very reliable. Three options are available to the buyer, distinguished by their color. The main advantage of the adapter is its low price.

SanDisk USB Type-C USB Flash Drive

More recently, all flash drives had only a full-sized USB plug. This is logical, because such an accessory was connected in almost 100% of cases to a laptop or desktop PC. But for some time smartphones have learned to recognize a USB stick. Before, the drive had to be connected to them using an OTG adapter. But now this process can be significantly simplified by buying a special flash drive with a built-in USB Type-C connector.

The largest number of such accessories is produced by Samsung and SanDisk. We recommend choosing the second company, its products are more convenient and reliable. The SanDisk flash drive has a slider through which the USB connector needed to connect to the computer is changed to USB Type-C. At the same time, the product supports the USB 3.1 standard, so the read speed can reach 150 Mb / s. The accessory has minimum dimensions, and its weight does not exceed 20 g. The case is made of metal - the baby will be damaged only under the wheel of the car. In total, the manufacturer offers to purchase three drive options that differ in memory size: from 32 to 128 GB.

USB hub

MacBooks have recently been getting fewer connectors. Sometimes it comes to the point that the creators propose to get by with only USB Type-C ports. But what if you want to display a picture on the monitor, but you have only the usual HDMI cable at hand? Or if you need to connect a card reader equipped with a regular USB cable? In this case, a USB hub is required. Or a splitter, if you prefer calling it.

The accessory is a small box with rounded corners. Its wire is inserted into the USB Type-C port, and at the end of the accessory are the following connectors: the same USB Type-C, HDMI and full-sized USB 3.0. This allows you to connect three completely different devices to the laptop at once! The gadget is inexpensive, and three color options will allow you to choose an accessory for the color of the "MacBook" on hand. And note that the hub we have chosen is designed specifically for the "apple" laptop! However, walking on AliExpress , you are sure to find solutions for other laptops.
