Which of the Type-C Interface and Microusb Interface is Better to Use?

I still remember that before 2010, there was still a big gap between the USB data cable models of various mobile phone brands, so the data cables between mobile phone manufacturers were not universal. Until 2014 and 2015, most Android phones used the same data interface, which also made it easier and faster to cross data cables between phones. Whenever the phone runs out of power, we will think of looking for a USB data cable for charging. This is the mobile phone charging data cable. It also distinguishes Type-c interface and MicroUSB interface. So, which of these two interfaces is better to use? The following Type C Contacts Manufacturer will take you to find out.

At present, there are three main types of mobile phone charger interfaces: Micro USB interface for Android and Windows phone system mobile phone camps, Connectors Type C, and Lightning interface for IOS system mobile phones. Since Apple’s MacBook first adopted the Type-C interface, the outside world has questioned whether Apple’s aggressive use of such a “wonderful” interface will bring a lot of inconvenience to users? Who knows, less than a year Android manufacturers have launched devices using USB Type-C interface, Apple once again successfully led the development of the entire industry.


So, what is the difference between the Type-c interface and the MicroUSB interface of the mobile phone data cable?


First, let's take a look at the Type-c interface. The Type-C interface, referred to as USB-C for short, is located at the bottom of the smartphone. Most of the time it is used for charging and data transmission. The biggest feature of the Type-C double-sided pluggable interface is that it supports USB double-sided plugging, which officially solves the worldwide problem of "USB will never be plugged in", and plugs in both sides positively and negatively. At the same time, it is a connection interface of the USB 3.1 standard, which has the characteristics of plugging in both front and back and fast transmission speed. Although the interface is designed based on the USB 3.1 standard, not all devices using this interface connection method support the USB 3.1 standard. At the same time, the USB data cable used with it must also be thinner and lighter.


Type-c interface features:

1. Thin: 0.83 cm long and 0.26 cm wide. The old USB port is 1.4 cm long and 0.65 cm wide.

2. Supports double-sided insertion of the USB interface, which solves the big problem of "USB will never be inserted correctly".

3. Fast charging and transmission speed: The maximum transmission rate is 10Gb per second.


Next, look at the MicroUSB interface. Micro-USB is the next-generation specification of Mini-USB. The definition of the Micro series includes Micro-B series slots used by standard equipment; Micro-AB slots used by OTG equipment; Micro-A and Micro-B plugs, and cables cable. The unique feature of the Micro series is that they include a stainless steel housing, which is not a problem for 10,000 insertions. The MicroUSB interface is a portable version of the USB 2.0 standard. It is designed to prevent blind insertion, and can only be inserted on one side. It supports OTG function and is compatible with USB 1.1 and USB 2.0.


MicroUSB interface features:

1, portable: The interface is smaller, saving space.

2, with up to 10,000 mating life and strength, blind plug structure design.

3, support the current USB OTG function: can provide charging and data transmission at the same time.


So, which type of C-type interface and MicroUSB interface of the mobile phone data cable is easy to use? In appearance, the micro USB is narrower than the Type-C interface, but it has a strong sense of weight. Although Type-C is relatively wide, it is relatively thin and light. In the direction design, the Type-C interface has no distinction between forward and reverse directions, and can be inserted in both directions. Micro USB is divided into positive and negative directions, and the wrong insertion will not only affect the cable plug itself, but also easily damage the mobile phone interface. In terms of transmission speed, the specifications of micro USB limit the output of the highest voltage, and there are restrictions on charging technology. The Type-C interface solves the problem of limiting the voltage of the port, and the maximum output power increases significantly. Increased charging speed.


The above is the information about the Type-c interface and MicroUSB interface introduced by USB Interface 3.1 Manufacturer.
