CalDigit Cable Selector

With the introduction of the Type-C connector it can be quite confusing to understand which cables are compatible with your Type-C device. All Type-C cables look similar but they can be a variety of different protocols such as USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt™ 3.

* We do not recommend using a USB 2.0 Type-C cable as it offers significantly reduced speeds.
** Directly connecting a Thunderbolt 3 Active cable to a USB-C (non-thunderbolt) device will result in reduced USB 2.0 speeds.
*** Directly connecting a Thunderbolt 3 Active cable to a Thunderbolt 3 Dock which has a USB 3.0 device connecting to it will still maintain USB 3.0 speeds for that USB device.
**** Apple USB-C charging cable is not compatible with any Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C 3.0 devices.
