The common problem of today’s technological devices, from smartphones to laptop computers, may be the charging times of the batteries. However, with the new generation USB-C 2.1 cable, this problem seems to be largely avoided. Netherlands-based Club3D’s new USB-C 2.1 cable can transfer power up to 240W.
New generation USB-C 2.1 cable capable of 240W power transfer
The idea of USB Type-C cable, which is compatible with every device, has limited use due to the amount of power it can offer. However, the company named Club3D has released a new generation USB-C 2.1 cable that can provide up to 240W of power. The company offered customers three different cable options: two with USB-C 2.1 for power, data and video transmission; the other is on the USB 2.0 port for power and slower data.
Club3D’s new products seem quite ambitious as the maximum power that the currently used USB-C cables can provide is at the limit of 100W. The first of the three models, the CAC-1573 only offers USB 2.0 data transfer rates at 480Mbps and lacks video output support.
A top model, the CAC-1575, says that it offers transfer support for 60Hz 4K videos, as well as USB4 speeds up to 20Gbps. Finally CAC-1576; It includes USB4 speed up to 40 Gbps and 8K video support at 60 Hz. Also, the other two cables are two meters long, the most powerful model CAC-1576 is only one meter long.
Although Club3D’s new generation cables are exciting, there is no charging adapter that can support this power transfer. The Dutch company’s own charger heads claim to support a maximum of 132W.
Therefore, the new USB-C 2.1 cables are not available for use for smartphones and most laptops, at least for now. We also do not yet know the price tag of these cables and when they will be available for purchase.
