As of January 2022, USB-C has become increasingly popular in laptop computers due to its numerous advantages over previous USB standards. USB-C, also known as USB Type-C, offers several key features that make it highly desirable for laptop manufacturers and users alike:

Versatility: USB-C is a multipurpose port that supports various protocols, including USB 3.1/3.2, Thunderbolt 3/4, DisplayPort, and Power Delivery (PD). This versatility allows users to connect a wide range of devices, such as external storage drives, displays, peripherals, and power adapters, using a single USB-C port.

Faster Data Transfer Speeds: USB-C supports higher data transfer speeds compared to older USB standards. With USB 3.1/3.2 and Thunderbolt 3/4 protocols, users can transfer data at rates of up to 10 Gbps (USB 3.1/3.2) or 40 Gbps (Thunderbolt 3/4), significantly reducing file transfer times.

Increased Power Delivery: USB-C ports with Power Delivery (PD) capabilities can deliver higher power outputs, allowing them to charge laptops and other devices more quickly and efficiently. This feature is especially beneficial for ultraportable laptops and 2-in-1 devices that prioritize portability and battery life.

Reversible Connector: One of the most notable features of USB-C is its reversible connector, which can be plugged in either orientation without needing to worry about the cable’s orientation. This user-friendly design simplifies the connection process and reduces wear and tear on the port and connector.

Compact Form Factor: USB-C connectors are smaller and more compact than previous USB connectors, making them ideal for thin and lightweight laptops. This allows manufacturers to design slimmer devices without sacrificing connectivity options.

Industry Adoption: USB-C has gained widespread industry adoption and support from major technology companies, including laptop manufacturers, smartphone makers, and accessory providers. This broad support has contributed to its increasing popularity and availability across a wide range of devices.

Future-Proofing: As USB-C continues to evolve and become the standard for connectivity, laptops equipped with USB-C ports are considered more future-proof. Users can expect their devices to remain compatible with upcoming USB-C peripherals and accessories for years to come.

The USB-C duplicator has a list price of $1,299 and is available through on-line retails like Amazon, and NewEgg. If you are outside the United States, the product is available through a worldwide network of authorized resellers.

Nexcopy did allude to larger models coming out in the months ahead. It appears the manufacturer will introduce a 40 target and 60 target USB-C duplicator later in the year.
