After the launch of the Raspberry Pi, USB-C has appeared more and more in open source hardware, which means that it seems that a wave of replacing USB-micro-B is approaching, I summarized several advantages to discuss together.
some new products from Seeed is switching from USB-micro to USB-C
Easy to embed into the housing
Higher current passing capacity
USB-C connector has 2 group of power pins which means that it allows greater current
USB-C is Much sturdier. The holding tangs are on the inside, so they don’t get snagged as easy and the center tab is centered so it doesn’t get pushed aside.
Easy to use, everyone will have more and more USB-C cables
Laptops and mobile devices, Android phones, GoPro, etc. have been equipped with USB-C interface, which means that each of us is likely to have at least one USB-C cable
