  • 3.1 USB-C to USB-C Cable – connect and charge between two USB-C ports ($24.99)
  • 2.0 USB-C to USB-A Cable – connect and charge between the new USB-C port and an existing USB-A 2.0 port ($9.99)
  • USB-C to USB 3.0 A/F – enables USB 3.0 A to connect to a USB-C port ($11.99)
  • USB-C to DisplayPort Cable – connect a USB-C device to a high resolution display via DisplayPort ($34.99)
  • USB-C to HDMI® Adapter – connect to a high resolution HDMI display via USB-C ($34.99)

  • "through the single USB-C port on your new Chromebook Pixel." The Chromebook Pixel has two USB-C ports. One on either side. "The latest version of the Chromebook Pixel launched in March with two USB-C ports" Which you said here. Just thought I'd point out the mistake... thanks for the article!
  • Lol, they'll sell more advertising them as Macbook accessories but whatever... I guess at least the pixel gives a reason for this ad to appear on AC...
  • USB-C is going to be the new standard. It's not just an Apple connector. Every Android phone is going to be using USB-C in short order.
  • I take it USB-C is backwards compatible with the ports on devices we already have?
    You know, like the way Quick Charge 2.0 is backwards compatible. Rooted Galaxy S III Stock Galaxy Note 4
    Rooted LG G2

  • Type-C is just the plug. You obviously can't plug it into Standard-A (those commonly used on your PC) or Micro-B ports (e.g. Smartphones), because they physically won't fit. The technology behind this plugs is your standard USB 3.1, though, which is backwards compatible, i.e. you just need a cable with a C plug on the one side and a Micro-B on the other to connect your Note 4 to a Chromebook Pixel 2.
  • I find it pretty ironic that a company that got so big by selling low priced cables is now selling a USB cable for $30.
  • Have you seen them for cheaper anywhere else?
  • A USB 3.1 cable can't be the same price as a USB 2.0 or even 3.0 cable, the construction is more complicated and the Type C connector is not yet mass market so of course its going to be more expensive. Posted via Android Central App
  • Doesn't the Nexus 9 have a USB-C?
  • Nope USB 2.0 Micro-B Posted via Android Central App
  • I take it these work with the new MacBook also? Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • $30 for a cable, that's crazy Posted via the Android Central App
  • I've paid worse before... hell
    Apple people pay more than that every time!
