USB Type-C to feature reversible charger connectors

usb-type-c-cableslRecently CNET published some of the first images of the new USB Type-C cables and ports coming in the future. This new, tiny connector is due to be a reversible form, taking much of the aggravation out of plugging power or data transfer cables into your device. Essentially, this is along the same lines as Apple’s Lightning port. It has been a while since we moved from mini USB to micro USB and a refresh is exciting, there shouldn’t be too many folk out there to grumble as much as Apple users did when their expensive docks and chargers became a little bit incompatible with newer Apple devices. However, anyone who has struggled to find the right way round for a microUSB to fit into their phone in the dark will certainly appreciate the new form.
