Accell USB-C to USB-A Adapter Reviewed

Part number: U213B-001B.

For a retail of $37.99, this little adapter is all you need to provide a USB-A 3.0 port to a USB-C device such as a phone, Macbook Pro, or modern computer. This also supports bi-directional power delivery, so you can charge your device at the same time it retrieves data.

I was able to get full USB 3.0 transfer speeds on a Google Pixel XL, Macbook Pro, and two different Windows 10 machines.  This is a handy little device that allows bi-directional power with simultaneous data access.  So on a MacBook pro, I can charge my laptop at the same time I access data from a flash drive or hard drive.  This is all with using the same, single USB-C port.  Accell has always made very high quality cables, and this is no different.  I have Accell cables that are several years old and still work great so I feel this will continue that trend.

All in all this is a great product if address a function you’re looking for.  I’ve seen no limitation on speed or compatibility, so this is a very safe investment
