The 2015 Macbook, Chromebook Pixel and some of the latest Android phones have adopted the brand new USB Type C connector which is reversible, can carry more current and transfer data more quickly. However chances are you still have a lot of accessories that use older USB connectors.

That’s where this nicely made adapter from EC Technology comes in. It converts one of your USB-C ports to the full-size USB 3.0 connector used by most of today’s accessories.

There’s a standard female blue USB 3.0 connector embedded on one end and a male USB-C on the other. The small size means it’s handy to slip into your bag or pocket while it’s also small enough to leave permanently connected to your favourite USB accessory.
