    USB 3.0 USB-C Male to USB-A Female Cable, 6-inch

    USB-C is here and it is a real game changer!

    • New reversible Type C connector plugs in the first time, every time!
    • Use a single cable for power, video, networking, and data
    • USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ supports up to 10Gbps data rate
    • Charge and power devices with up to 100 watts of power

    Until this point we've had to deal with a number of different USB connector types with different shapes and sizes. One thing that is common among all the various USB Type A and Type B connectors is that they are all asymmetrical, which means that there is a top and a bottom, as anyone who has fumbled around trying to insert a USB cable by feel can attest. The old USB standards are also relatively slow and can carry very little charging power.

    The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in!

    In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air® featuring only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral devices.

    This 6-inch USB 3.0 cable features a male USB Type C connector on one end and a female USB 3.0 Type A connector on the other end.

    BEST ANSWER: There is no real difference. The shape of each is slightly different, but the functionality is the same.
    Is this cable USB 3.0 or 3.1? Description says 3.1. specification says 3.0
    A shopper on Nov 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It's 3.1.
    Can I connect a USB 3.0 hub to this and have it run at full speed? My mobo (gigabyte z170 gaming 7) has 2 USB controllers, and one is connected to the USB-C and USB 3.1 ports
    A shopper on Feb 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Yes this item will allow you to connect a USB 3.0 hub and use it at full speed just as long as the USB connection on the PC supports USB 3.0

    Works for OTG USB with the Nexus 6p Android device.

    Can mount flash drives/sd card adapters, although my device had trouble with some of my FAT32-formatted USB flash drives. Not sure whether this is due to the cable or Android or something else.

    Was able to connect and use a DualShock 3 controller and a webcam.

    works perfectly
    Bought this to use with a new MacBook Pro (late 2016 model). Using to connect a keyboard, and it works like a charm.

    Does its job perfectly.
    I would think that the adapter could be even shorter and not hinder anything. If it were slightly more flexible and available in different colors, even better. Right now, although it works perfectly, it does look like a sore thumb. At any rate, I find it useful.

    PROS: Works as you'd expect.

    CONS: Black color isn't necessarily a match for the MacBook or the Chromebook that it would be used with right now. (Not as important in the future.) The cable is a little stiff, so it does act as a big of strain relief on the connector.

    Worked perfectly
    All I hoped it would be (and small enough to go with me on vacation).

    PROS: Enabled my new MacBook to connect to my phone and camera to download photos! Great product and great value.

    Great help for new MacBooks!
    Bought several of these to keep attached to external device (superdrive, external drives, jump drives) and they have worked flawlessly.

    Solid USB Adapter
    The USB-C side of this engages solidly and the whole thing seems well made. Worked great to allow peripheral device usage on Nexus 5x.

    USB-c to USB-a cable
    I had been looking for a USB-C to USB-A adapter because I purchased the late 2016 MacBook Pro. I looked at the similar adapter from Belkin in comparison to the Monoprice one.I bought the Belkin one (and was pleased that it was much better than the Apple adapter). I then purchased the Monoprice adapter because it can have up to 5A of power throughput instead of the Belkin one which has up to 3A of power. The Monoprice adapter has been the best adater that I have. I use it for tethering my camera to my computer when I'm photographing. I also use it for everything else. I would purchase another one.

    USB adapter cable is a necessity for the new MacBook. This cable works, the price is excellent, and it was shipped immediately. Don't waste money on a more expensive cable.

    PROS: Price

    It works

    CONS: None

    Must have addition for anyone with a 12" MacBook.

    PROS: Great value for the price. This is a very nice alternative to the Apple branded one and less money.

    CONS: None.

    A lot cheaper than Apple
    Well made and they get the job done with no issues. Perfect for connecting all my non USB-C stuff (which is everything).
