The USB Type-C™ is a newer standard for USB cables. It's standard exists because of the need to adapt USB technology to serve newer computing platforms and devices that are becoming smaller, thinner and lighter. There is a need to increase speed, function and the ability to work with more devices. The Type-C port measures about .3 in by .1 in and is about the same size as the Micro USB connector. This small size allows it to fit smaller devices without taking up a lot of room on the device. The connector design doesn't allow you to plug it in upside down as with standard USB A connectors. It supports higher speeds and higher power output.
