USB C Adapters for Chromebooks are becoming more and more necessary. Newer Chromebooks and other laptops are getting ridding of standard USB Type-A ports. Many still want to use older devises that do not have USB C. You can try to upgrade all your peripherals to USB-C, or you can get a USB-C hub and keep using your USB-A keyboard and ripping photos off your camera’s SD cards. Thus, it is necessary to get a USB-C adapter that is Chromebook compatible.
With you a USB C adapter, you can connect standard USB Type-A enabled devices and peripherals (flash drives, keyboards, mice and more) to USB Type-C enabled devices (USB Type-A cable not included). If you have a jump drive, an external hard drive, or an SD card, you can use it without any major problems on a Chromebook. If your jump drive or external hard drive has a USB connection, simply plug it into one of your available USB ports.
Almost all of these adapters claim up to 5Gbps data transfer speed on the USB C adapters. Below are are several USB C adapters that are certified by USB-IF to be compliant with USB 3.1 Gen 1 Standard; backwards compatibility to USB 3.0 and 2.0; power output up to 5V, 3 Amp
