Types of “USB cables”: Based on the design, functionality,and speed, we can classify the USB cables into three categories:

  • USB cable: This was the initial USB cable that was innovated. In these types of the USB cable, the interaction is from the host to the peripheral.  Normally the cable configuration is designed in such a way that it is from type A to type B.
  • USB 2 Cable: This is a development of the earlier USB cable.  The speed of functions it does increases from the initial one.  Even here the communication goes from host to the peripheral devices with the same cable configuration type A to Type B.
  • USB 3 Cable: This is the latest version of the USB cables. The speed of functioning increases from megabytes to gigabytes with the same specification,e., communication passes from host to peripheral devices with cable configuration Type A to Type B.,But the latest version has a special facility.  The cable can be used from both the ends or the plug can be reversed.  This facility has made the usage simpler.

Different types of USB cables

The size and shape are the main factors that differentiate the USB cables.  Initially, USB cables used to be manufactured with a round tip.  But now a flatly shaped pin is being manufactured.  Even the devices also have a point specifically designed to allow the USB charger to be used to charge the device.  It depends on the device how many pins are there.  So accordingly, even the charger cable is being designed.  But if you want to buy a new charger cable, you will have checked the charger point and ensure whether it has a round pin or flat pin.  Nowadays, you get USB charger cable under various brands such as Apple charger cable which will suit any of your mobile smart phones.

So, when you are planning to buy a charger cable always check for the same brand USB charger cable which is similar to your phone else buy a USB charger cable which is best suitable for your mobile.
