    What about the opposite way, I have a micro USB wireless headphone that charge via micro USB, it's my ps4 headset that I love but would love to charge and more easily use with my ps5. Since ps5 has adopted the USB-C.

    I occasionally plug a device into my computer and get the "this device can perform faster USB 3.0" notification. I will then plug it into the USB 3.0 port, and nothing changes. After watching this, I now understand why. I've been plugging into the USB 3.0, but am still using a 2.0 cable.

    look closer at the pcb. lol you could have simply desoldered that resistor put it on the other pads right next to it (on both breakout boards) and BAM. sub-device LOL

    Was wondering if you had any ideas for a wireless usb adaptor to make wired devices wireless, I have seen the Bluetooth modules, but for something special, Like an Activeboard or smartboard, they need a proper USB host connection to function. wireless display is easy, but i am still stuck running cables across the room for the usb connections.

    There's really no reason to go from type A to C on something you're plugging into the computer, motherboards these days only have one C port as a novelty. Type A is simply more durable, it's like you're going from speakon to 3.5mm

    Hi Matt, really love your videos. However I still cannot see properly how and which pin you solder the resistor for the USB-C trim-down version breakout board to convert it to 'Device' mode. And what is the resistor value to use? Can have the specifications in more details? Thanks.

    Um... No. The long adapter is MUCH better. It is less likely to break off when you put the laptop in bag. Put that together with the time and possible money going into making an adapter, which inherently is easy to mess up, and put power down a data line. Stick with the adapters. You will be much happier if you do.

    Hello, I have an USB charger which works with type C connector at two ends of the cable. But I don't have that kind of cable. So what will happen if I use a converter to charge my phone? Such as in order, I use the charger => then usb to type C connector (the type C ends connect with the charger) => then the normal usb type C cable => my phone at the end. So will my phone be charged correctly? Thank you!
