    With new technology comes transition pains. USB Type-C is the future, but it will mean that many of our cables and accessories will now be useless. This was the same issue we had when jumping to micro usb. I still have some of the older type cables around the house which are good for nothing, but I have kept for some unknown reason. One of the largest costs that will be incurred when upgrading to a device with USB C will be upgrading all your accessories.

    The first thing you will want to grab if you have picked up a Nexus 6P or 5X or a OnePlus 2 is some Type-C cables. I have chargers everywhere. luckily these charges have removable cables so all i will need to replace is the cable itself. I currently have 10+ chargers that will all need new cables once i transition to Type-C. This could cost me a cool $200-300. Luckily OnePlus is selling Type-C cables super cheap. Their cables are pretty well built with a tangle free design making them super durable. You can grab a 3ft cable for $5.49 or a 5ft cable for $6.99. Head to the link below and stock up Asap!

    I don't think so. The USB end isn't enclosed like a normal type A plug.

    I'll bet it works just fine in a normal USB charger. It looks exactly like this type of thumb drive which works just fine.
