With a large selection of smartphone going to USB-C is not a surprise that some of us are looking at replacing our current microUSB desktop dock with a Type-C desktop charging solution. Here in Canada, it hasn’t been as easy to find such solution, however, we have RND Accessories which does sell items to Canadians!
RND Accessories initially had a USB-A to USB-C charging dock, which means you could just connect to your standard USB port from your laptop, USB-A chargers that everyone has around the house, an outlet etc. What changed is that with USB-C devices such as the Nexus 6P, a lot of us are looking at taking full advantage of the fast charge capability of the device. To achieve this, we need to be able to connect our device from USB-C to USB-C using a charging block that delivers the standard USB-C specs for power which is 5V/3A solution.
For myself, I’m using CHOETECH USB Type-C 5V/3A block charging which I connected my USB-C dock to it to deliver the fast and blazing charging speed that I want.
Once I connected the dock to the proper power block it was done, I was fast charging my device. RND Accessories was even nice to provide a coupon code for fans of Android Coliseum to use at purchase giving you a 20% discount!
Not only can you charge your device, you can also get blazing fast data transfer speed if you have a desktop, laptop that uses USB-C. This allows you to take full advantage of speed transfers of up to 480mbps!
You may be interested to know that there’s a growing list of devices which can use this charging dock; Compatible With but NOT limited to: – Asus ZenFone 3 – BLU Vivo XL and BLU Vivo 5 – General Mobile GM 5 Plus – Huawei P9 – HTC 10 – Lenovo Zuk Z1 and Zuk Z2 Pro – Letv Le – LG G5 – Meizu PRO 5 and PRO 6 – Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL – Motorola Moto Z and Z Force – Nextbit Robin – Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3 – Xiaomi Mi4c and Mi5 – ZTE Axon 7.
Think I’m crazy yet for going full board with USB-C?
Some of you are going to ask, is this legit? Is it safe? Totally safe, it works as design, it respects USB-C specification on either end of the USB-C to USB-C cable. (This is not USB-A to USB-C cable which would be a LEGACY cable). You don’t have to take my word for it. RND Accessories are committed to giving a 100% satisfaction.
To keep the cost of the dock low, RND does not include a power block charger, unless you have your own, you’ll need to get a USB Type-C block charger. At the cost of $24 USD, this is a good deal. Interested in making a purchase? You can grab the coupon code in my previous article and head on over to RND Accessories USB-C Dock page.
