  Type-C interface is also called USB-C interface.
  The size of the USB-C interface is 8.3×2.5 mm, which is smaller than the current PC USB interface, but slightly larger than the 6.85×1.8 mm micro-USB interface used in many mobile phones. As for power transmission specifications, the wire standard is DC 5V, 5A, while the connector is 3A. Type-C is not compatible with any existing types, so additional adapter equipment is required.
