Where Would I be Without my USB Port?

Feb 24, 2011

It used to be that you only saw USB ports on the back of computer towers. Back then they were just USB 1.0  with the low speeds of 1.5 Mps. Then a few years ago you started to see  notices when you plugged in a USB device to “plug this device into a 2.0 high speed port for better performance.” It’s pretty amazing just how many things run off USB power. Why,

Super adaptable!

even new phone chargers are USB compatible. The wall plug is just an adapter on the newer models and pops right off to reveal a USB cable. That means phones are now being charged on computer USB ports – crazy!

What do you do if you don’t have the USB ports?

If you have an older model computer or laptop that has a limited number of USB ports or just the 1.0 speed ports you’re not out of luck. Update your USB performance by getting a USB changer and port saver.

Check out the selection of USB adapters and port savers at Triangle Cables. We also offer the new high performance USB 3.0 cables which are backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices – increasing speed and performance of your current USB devices.
