Simplify Your Life with the USB Type-C Storage Solution from Transcend

With the growing adoption of the USB Type-C standard by new platforms and devices, Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a leading manufacturer of storage and multimedia products, has developed a wide range of USB Type-C products including USB flash drives, external hard drives, and card readers. These devices enable easy and efficient file transfer between the latest USB Type-C mobile devices and computers.

Why USB Type-C?

While USB Type-A and Type-B connectors prevail, the new USB Type-C connector has been released to gradually replace the others. In addition to the capabilities of power charging at up to 100 watts and video output (HDMI/ VGA/ DisplayPort), USB Type-C possesses two other features that differentiate it from USB Type-A and Type-B connectors. First, USB Type-A and Type-B are non-reversible, meaning time wasted ensuring a correct plug-in. Second, they cannot be used across multiple platforms. But that’s all changing, with the future-proof Type C standard marching toward ubiquity.


USB Type-C is a hardware change, rather than an interface standard change (like USB 2.0 to USB 3.0). Type-C devices are easy to insert, being reversible. This symmetrical oval plug will replace Type A and B, respectively the rectangular plug found on such things as thumb drives, and that found to connect to power-drawing devices, like cell phones. For example, Transcend StoreJet 25MC portable drive can be connected to a smartphone with a USB Type-C port and access file directly without the need for any OTG dongles.


With connectors simplified to a single type, USB Type-C allows for use across multiple platforms, meaning that you only need one cable for both PC and handheld devices. For example, Transcend JetFlash flash drives and card readers equipped with a USB Type-C connector allow free data transfers among various platforms without the need to worry about port shapes.
