Why USB-C is selected by the European Union, while the lightning is tragically restricted? Compared to Lightning Interface, USB-C has many obvious advantages:


1. USB-C Has a Faster Transfer Rate

   Although most of the transmission is carried out through wireless networks currently, the advantage of USBC in data transmission speed is still a highlight, with a maximum transmission speed of 10Gbps, far exceeding the transmission rate of Lightning.

3. USB C Supports Higher Power And Fast-charging

The high charging power is one of the biggest highlights of USB-C. In addition, USB-C supports the USB Power Delivery fast-charging standard, fully charging a mobile phone within an hour is just a piece of cake. PROCET's PoE to USB-C converter not only supports a variety of power, but also supports fast charging technology, keeping up with the trend.
