A regular charging adapter is better because:
- You can twist the round connector around, adapting to the angle that the tablet is standing at. Especially useful with angled plugs.
- It's much much cheaper
- It's not confusing. With USB-C we're seeing a lot of accessories that "should" work but they don't.
Because it's stupid to spend more just because you spent some money. Just stupid. I already have all the peripherals I need, so why should I throw them away and buy new ones? I don't know about you, but I think this is the definition of wasting money
And now we're talking about a completely different thing, Thunderbolt. I really wish they used some other connector for Thunderbolt 3, even Displayport that nobody uses would be much better. The reason for that is manufacturers having this illusion that a Thunderbolt 3 port can serve as a USB port. It can't. It can only be a nasty workaround when you lack another USB port, and only if you have an adapter for that. They include a TB3 port and think that they don't need USB anymore. That is wrong. I mean Thunderbolt is awesome, because it allows eGPU. Butthat's Thunderbolt, not type C. Too bad people associate theseso things so closely, even though they're completely unrelated. Thunderbolt should not be giving any credits to type C.
