I'm looking for a USB-C male (3.1) to Micro-B (3) female cable or adapter. The use case would be to allow last-option charging of a USB-C laptop (e.g. Pixel 2) from a standard phone/tablet charger (Micro-B).

  • According to the Help Center, this question is off-topic. – Jamal Sep 26 '15 at 21:41
  • Thanks @Jamal. I did some research before posting and found this to be the best StackExchange site to post this on. So I posted it here. I did read the linked page and still feel this is okay to ask. – Josh M. Sep 27 '15 at 3:09
  • Then we'll see whether or not the community decides to close this. – Jamal Sep 27 '15 at 3:17

    Josh is asking if one exists, not where to buy one, its a legit question imho. One way to prove one exists is to link to one for sale as I did. – Moab Sep 27 '15 at 13:16

I found a cable on the site below, I found it by googling "USB-C male to Micro-B female adapter"

you might also look at the monoprice.com site

    How exactly would you provide an answer to this question? I do not believe anything needs to be changed in this answer, because he gave a description of what he searched for to find the product. This isn't like a software/hardware troubleshooting question where an answer needs to be long and specific. – Ulincsys Sep 26 '15 at 23:16
  • @Ulincsys: The problem with any answer where the information is contained in a link is that if the link breaks, the answer isn't useful. What Moab did with the edit solves that problem. To answer your question, this is how you would do it. If you only looked at the post-edit version, you correctly recognized a good answer, so congrats. – fixer1234 Sep 26 '15 at 23:35
  • @fixer1234 I had not realized that the question was edited until you pointed it out, thank you. – Ulincsys Sep 27 '15 at 1:16
  • Close, but it's not USB 3. :) This question's about to get deleted anyway! – Josh M. Sep 27 '15 at 3:17
  • I accepted it anyway for now, I don't see any alternative with a USB-3 Micro-B female connector, but this one is close enough (for me). – Josh M. Sep 27 '15 at 14:49

Male USB 3.1 C to male USB 3 micro-B seem easy enough to find but ones that have female USB 3 micro-B connectors, not so much. Perhaps a gender adapter.
