There are different types of USB used in mobile tablets or laptops, but each size has an identity. We know how to use everything from mobiles to laptops and power banks, but little do we know about their accessories, especially the USB port for charging mobiles and laptops. USB ports started with thin pins, along with the technology change, the import size also changed, attention has been paid to the size, but what they are called, probably a few people know about it.
Take a look at the types of USB cables:
- USB Type-A
It is in every cable to be connected to the main machine, gadgets or other accessories or often the motor chip of the USB cable is known by the name of Type A that is connected to the board pen drives mouse mobile charger cable etc.
- Type B mini
These ports are easily found in older gadgets such as Android phones, cameras, MP3 players or game controllers. This port lasted only a short time, after which a micro USB replaced it. Now, this mini port is used in fewer and older devices.
- Type B micro
It is used in many gadgets ranging from mobile phones, power banks, smartwatches, Bluetooth speakers, and wireless earphones. This port is slightly thinner than the port of Mini USB, although its use is also rarely seen after the arrival of the Type C port.
- Type C
Now it is used only in new smartphones, laptops and game controllers. This reversible connector can be used upside down on both sides. The speed of data transfer is more than the first port. The battery also charges fast.
- OTG Cable
OTG means ‘on-the-go’. It is similar to a charger cable, but its cable is shorter. On one side is the mobile port, and on the other side is the Type-A port. With its help, the keyboard, mouse and other devices can be connected to the mobile.
Here’s an example:
Suppose you have to type a text on your android phone. Put the mini or micro port of the OTG cable in the mobile and on the Type A keyboard, and then you will be able to use the keyboard on the mobile. With the help of this, the Pen drive can also be connected to the mobile phone.
