FAQs

What is USB version 3.0?

Dubbed "SuperSpeed USB", USB 3.0 promises a major leap forward in transfer speeds and capability, while maintaining backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 devices.

What is the difference between USB type A and type B connectors?

USB type A connectors are the most common USB type and feature a rectangular shape. They are often found on the end of devices such as memory sticks and keyboards and are used to fit into female type A connectors and adapters. Type A connectors tend to be used for host devices such as laptops, games consoles and more and are available in different sizes such as Mini-A and Micro-A.

Type B connectors feature a squarer profile with a slight rounding or square protrusion on the top of it. This type of connector is commonly found on the end of larger devices such as printers and scanners and are used to fit female B connectors and adapters. They are also available in various sizes included Mini-B and Micro-B.

Is this backwards compatible?

Yes, this cable is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1. However, if used with USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices the USB speed will be reduced to reflect this.
