FAQs

What is the difference between Male and Female USB connectors?

USB cables can feature either male or female connectors suited to various applications. Male connectors are typically used to connect to a host such as a computer, whereas a female connector is used to receive a male connector. For example, a computer will often feature a female USB port to allow male connectors found on devices such as a keyboard to be inserted and connected.

Is this backwards compatible?

Yes, this cable is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1. However, if used with USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices the USB speed will be reduced to reflect this.

What is USB version 3.0?

Dubbed "SuperSpeed USB", USB 3.0 promises a major leap forward in transfer speeds and capability, while maintaining backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 devices.
