This Type-C to Type-C charging cable uses the newer USB Type-C connector. The Type-C connector is different than the older Type-A connector and provides better charging capabilities. The Type-C connector is the small, oval-shaped connector that can be found on this charging cable and usually comes with many of the newest electronic devices including the LG V60, LG G8 and a huge range of other devices. The older Type-A connector is a large rectangular port. Having a Type-C USB connector on both sides of this charging cable means that you will need to use a Type-C wall adapter, which has the small, oval-shaped port at both ends to plug in. You can find that wall adapter here.
