USB drives have been around for ages now and are still a really convenient, highly portable way to move information from one device to another. Until recently most computing systems had a good old, tried and true USB Type-A port on them and moving information to/from devices simply required finding an available USB port and plugging in.
Times have changed a bit, with some newer computers having USB Type-C ports and cell phones and tablets arriving on the scene with their tiny micro-USB or Lightning connectors. Now moving information from one place to another isn’t quite as simple.
Adapters or multi-port hubs may work in some cases but can’t always be guaranteed to be available.
Our selection of dual-connector USB drives often provide a better solution when frequently working between devices with two different connector types.
USB Type-A + Type-C Drives
Our Type-A to Type-C USB drives are an excellent choice for moving data from devices with older USB ports to newer ones like MacBooks which only have USB-C ports. They also work great with the newer generation of cell phones which have implemented USB-C.

One thing to be aware of: Android and Apple iOS are significantly different operating systems than the familiar plug-and-play, drag-and-drop interfaces available on computers.
