Here’s an interesting doo-dad in a long line of USB Type-C related products that we’re seeing these days: this one is the Innergie MagiCable USB-C Connector to Micro USB, and it allows you to charge your MicroUSB devices from a USB Type-C cable.

We’ve all grown so used to microUSB on every device other than ones branded Apple, so it’s hard to picture a time when one port — the Type-C — will work with everything; that day seems to be coming.

Whether you have a MacBook, a newer Android phone, or one of the newer Windows or Linux tablets or a new Type-C fitted battery pack, if you’ve got this MagiCable, you’ve got a solidly-built way to charge your “older” microUSB device.

Cameras, GPS Units, mobile phones, tablets, or any other devices that charge via microUSB, whatever you use — this adapter will allow you to hook that device to any USB Type-C charging cable or battery pack, essentially retrofitting it for microUSB charging capability.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
