Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable

Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable

The Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable has been out of stock for quite some time. I managed to buy it when it just got back in stock on 9th November 2015. Because it doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, I have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The retail price is US$12.99 (S$19) excluding shipping fees from HopShopGo and comes in only one length which is 1m. It is a USB 2.0 cable and hence the data transfer speed will be capped at 480Mb/s.

Two years after Heart Of The Swarm (Zerg) and five years after Wings Of Liberty (Terran), the StarCraft 2 trilogy will come to a close with Legacy of the Void (Protoss).

StarCraft 2 – Legacy of the Void was officially launched on 10th November 2015. I have collected both Heart Of The Swarm and Wings Of Liberty Collector’s Edition and of course I can’t miss out on this last one.

The Apple USB Type-C Cable is retailing for S$42 and comes in only one length which is 2m. I wish they have it in 0.5m and 1m as well.

There are no markings on the USB ends on the cable because there is no need to since it has a reversible plug orientation. This is similar to the Apple Lighting cable as there is no marking on the Lightning end of that cable as well.

If you are thinking of getting a USB Type-C cable from Amazon, be sure to read Benson Leung’s review on Amazon first.
