USB Cables Types
Type-A. – Most cables have this type of USB connector on one end (2.0 and 3.0). Personal computers and chargers are also equipped with this type of USB.
Type-B. – This port is used to connect peripherals to your computer, smartphone, tablet.
Type – C.
What kinds of USB ports, connectors, cables are there?
1) USB 2.0 Type A.
2) USB 2.0 Type B. …
3) USB 2.0 Type Mini-B 4 pin. …
4) USB 2.0 Mini USB. …
5) USB 3.0 Type A. …
6) USB 3.0 Type B. …
7) USB 2.0 Micro USB. …
8) USB 3.0 Micro USB.
Regardless of the version of the usb cable, they are all divided into 2 types: A – placed on the side of the main device; B – on the side of the peripheral device.
USB-A and USB-C are different shaped connectors and plugs. USB-A is large rectangular, USB-C is small and looks more like an elongated oval than a rectangle. USB 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1 are data transfer standards. USB-A and USB-C can have different standards and the speed of the connection depends on this
The color of the USB connector is the fastest way to find out what version of USB the cable or port is. White usually means USB 1.0, black USB 2.0, and blue USB 3.0.
The key difference is the amount of power it can transfer to the battery of an electronic device. Compared to conventional cords, they transfer more current and therefore fill the battery capacity faster. While regular cords transmit about 2.5 watts, fast cords deliver up to 120 watts.
All kinds of connectors
Power Cable Connectors
As we’ve already said, USB Type-C supports data transfer speeds of 5 to 10 Gbps. If your phone supports that speed, you’ll be able to copy data much faster than with Micro USB, which is limited to the USB 2.0 standard (up to 480 Mbps)
You can visually distinguish between USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports by the color. The USB 3.0 version is blue, while the USB 2.0 version is black. This is also the color of the plugs on the cable. There are also several design options for USB connectors
The Type B connector is designed for use with USB peripherals. The Type B interface is square in shape with slightly beveled corners. Like the Type A connector, it uses the friction of the connector body to lock it in place. The B socket is an ascending connector, which is only used for peripheral devices

The USB 3.0 B-type connector is designed for USB peripheral devices such as a printer, hub input port, or other larger peripherals. This connector can support the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed specification and can also transfer data at low USB 2.0 speeds at the same time.
USB Type-C solves this problem with a universal connector that has twice the theoretical bandwidth of USB 3.0 and provides much more power. The other side of USB-C, unfortunately, is the problem of cable compatibility.
Type-C is much more versatile than you might think! Type-C is much more practical than all the previous connectors. For one thing, it’s more convenient to plug it into your smartphone rather than having to choose which side to hit. No more reason to carry around different blocks from different devices.
The difference between USB Type-C, however, is that it was specifically designed to take advantage of the new USB 3.1 standard. So instead of specifying the version that determines the power and speed at which data can be transferred, in the case of USB-C it is the connector itself.
