The latest connector technology on the market is USB Type-C. It can be found on the latest 12″ MacBook, the Google Chromebook Pixel, and the Nokia N-1 Tablet among other devices. USB-C will eventually replace other connectors, and is the new standard for small USB connections.
If you have any of the aforementioned gadgets in your collection, you’ll definitely want to pick up a long cable for attaching standard USB-A devices, like printers and external hard drives. Since the USB 3.1 standard that goes along with USB-C is substantially faster than prior versions, you can transfer data at speeds up to 10Gbps – twice the speed of USB 3.0.
This 6.5-foot-long cable is sure to come in handy in your bag of tricks, and is designed for durability. It’s wrapped in a thick cloth braiding to prevent tangles, and to protect the wiring inside. Normally prices at $30, the Juiced Systems USB-C cable can be had for just $19.99(USD) in the Technabob Shop.
