It works great with tablets and smartphones that have a single audio port. Just connect the headphone and microphone plugs from your headset into the adapter, connect the adapter to your mobile device and start talking. You can rely on our RJ45 connectors to deliver optimum conductivity while eliminating signal loss due to oxidation or corrosion. This connection board allows the users of iCopy or iCopy Plus programmers to test Lightning data cables and headsets. Duplicate a stereo signal to two identical stereo signals with this Y-cable. One end has a 1/4″ TRS female jack, and the other has dual 1/4″ TRS male plugs. With a 1/4-inch TRS Male on one end and dual RCA female on the other, this adapter fits 1/4″ headphone outputs.
The models we’ve seen are inelegant, leaving a little nub sticking out of the side of a laptop when the cable is disconnected. We then ran a free system-performance app called AJA System Test Lite on the laptop to measure read and write speeds in MB/s . To test power draw, we used the 13-inch laptop, a Satechi ammeter, and a first-generation Google Pixel phone, and we noted the maximum power-draw readings on the ammeter as well as on the laptop’s System Report. Unlike on Apple’s cables, the plastic housings that join the metal connectors to the Anker PowerLine II cables seem sturdy and robust, built to withstand bending or fraying even with frequent use. Compared with most of the other cables we tested, these cables make a satisfying click when plugged into a USB-C port and have minimal wiggling, ensuring a solid connection. If you have a device with a USB-C port—such as a MacBook or other compatible laptop, an iPad Pro, a Nintendo Switch, or an Android phone—you need a cable to charge it and to transfer data to and from other devices. Unfortunately, when it comes to USB-C, even cables that look identical can behave very differently—for instance, a cable that charges your phone at top speed might be sluggish at transferring music files, or vice versa. We’ve tested 78 cables and 16 adapters to help you find the right one for your needs without overspending.
But it produced a DC-resistance error when we ran it through the Total Phase Advanced Cable Tester. Plus, it’s thicker and bulkier than our Amazon Basics pick and about twice the price. The Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable is a nice length and has a great look and feel; it also achieved full USB 3.1 Gen 2 data transfer speeds in our testing. But in addition to not being USB-IF certified, this model fell short in our tests, as the Total Phase Advanced Cable Tester reported DC-resistance and signal-integrity errors. In our latest round of testing, we ousted our former pick in this section, the Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable , for not being USB-IF certified. In contrast, our Belkin and Anker PowerLine II picks both have this certification and performed as well as or better than this cable in our testing.
We also wanted to mention this adapter will work with most newer Apple products but it’s important to check how your specific Apple product is configured. Simply connect the headphone plug from your headset into the audio output port marked with the headphone symbol, and connect the microphone plug into the audio input port marked with the microphone symbol. Plug the adapter into audio port on your laptop and you’re all set. The small rectangular port with oval vertices at the bottom of your Apple gadget is what is known as the lightning port. This is the place where you charge your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. A FireWire 800 to Lightning cable is the adapter you use to link your iOS gadget with devices that are only designed to plug into this port. Most Mac computers do not come with a FireWire port to plug in your FireWire adapter.
The cables are limited to 15 meters (49.2 feet) in length, the maximum length DVI cable can go. A standard HDMI cable can go up to 65 feet, making an adapter superior when those few extra feet are needed. Converting HDMI to RCA is one of the more common problems that you can run into, with RCA being the old standard for televisions. Devices such as VCRs, older DVD players, and older video game consoles will only have RCA connections. When using older electronics with a newer TV or vice versa, going between RCA to HDMI usually becomes an issue. While they can be fixed, doing so is so difficult that even some professionals will not touch them. If you are running an HDMI cable someplace you cannot get to it, like behind a brick wall, it is highly recommended that you use an extender with ethernet cable. If something ever breaks, it is much easier to repair or replace an ethernet cable than an HDMI cord. Ensuring two connectors will properly join and work as expected can sometimes be a confusing and tedious task. For example, if an RFID reader has an RP-TNC Female connector, should it connect to a RP-TNC Male, a TNC Female, or a TNC Male?
This cable is pricier than most of our picks, but it offers maximum charging power and data-transfer rates when used with compatible devices. Plus it’s an “active” cable, so it can be longer (6.6 feet) than most Thunderbolt 3 cables without sacrificing performance. If you need one cable that does everything, this is the cable to get. It supports fast data-transfer speeds , can output video to a monitor, and can charge any USB-C laptop, even the 16-inch MacBook Pro, at full speed. The above versions of USB, and the Apple-specific Lightning connector, are the focus of this guide. Each has different capabilities and limitations in charging power and speed and data-transfer speed between devices .
able to set the USB WiFi adapter in the line of sight. You can use an outdoor enclosure to put the USB WiFi adapter outside, on a roof. The CableCreation Gold USB 3.1 Type C (USB-C) to VGA Adapter worked well in our testing, but enough customer reviews cite failure over time that we don’t feel comfortable recommending this adapter. StarTech’s USB-C to DVI Cable is more expensive than our pick without performing any differently, and it has a large plastic collar around the cable that makes it less convenient to take with you. Monoprice’s Select Series USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter works as well as our pick, but Monoprice’s shipping isn’t quite as convenient as purchasing from Amazon, especially not if you’re an Amazon Prime member. The Accell U187B-002B USB-C to HDMI 2.0 Adapter and StarTech USB-C to HDMI Adapter both work well, but were more expensive than our pick when we tested and don’t provide any advantages. Connects to VGA monitors and projectors at up to 1920×1080 at 60 Hz.

The Vivid AV® DVI to HDMI adapter is a perfect choice when needing to convert your HDMI cable to be usable with a DVI connection. I was having problems with this connecting a microphone. I cut the microphone side cable and only discovered two wires and no shield. Seems to me this is a 4-position to a 2-position and maybe (I haven’t cut that side open) a 3-position splitter. This is a very useful product for using a cell phone to output calls to capture for broadcast on KNSJ.
Please note that this information only applies from DVI output to HDMI input. Please click here to see information for a DVI source to an HDMI display. , Single/Dual-Link), all of them function identically when connected to an HDMI port. It increases the maximum transmission bandwidth to 48.0 Gbit/s. New “48G” HDMI cables will be required to take advantage of the higher data rate, but other features of HDMI 2.1 that are unrelated to bandwidth will not require new cables. HDMI and DisplayPort do support a wider range of possible settings compared to DVI, but this does not affect anything on displays which don’t take advantage of those extra capabilities. DVI supports up to 24 bit/px color depth (16.7 million colors), which is what most computer monitors and TVs run at. Although not guaranteed, most normal High Speed HDMI cables are capable of handling 4K 60 Hz just fine, and “4K compatible” HDMI cables are generally not necessary. However, the Apple Thunderbolt Display was the only monitor ever produced with no other inputs besides Thunderbolt. All other monitors ever produced with Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 inputs also have native DisplayPort inputs which can be used if you need to connect a plain DisplayPort source.
