Until this point we've had to deal with a number of different USB connector types with different shapes and sizes. One thing that is common among all the various USB Type A and Type B connectors is that they are all asymmetrical, which means that there is a top and a bottom, as anyone who has fumbled around trying to insert a USB cable by feel can attest. The old USB standards are also relatively slow and can carry very little charging power. The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in! In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air featuring only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral devices. This 4-inch video adapter features a male Type C connector on one end and a female VGA connector on the other end.

Super easy to load data on this card because I can plug the USB A straight into my computer even with the micro SD card inside it. Someone was very smart to come up with such an intuitive PnP concept that's so compact.
I plugged the USB A into my friend's car and his system automatically scanned and found all my music! I wish my Android did the same though... I had to download an app to view and play all my files. Only individual songs can be picked to play too. Although, that's not really the Monoprice unit's fault though!
Only thing I would change would be that I'd prefer a cap rather than the flappy part on the USB A side.
Bought this for my OnePlus 3, at first nothing happened thought it doesn't work, then I was playing around and found out that in storage and usb settings on the phone I need to enable OTG. Works Perfectly !
This is the best USB-C to MicroSD adapter out there. It is solid, and has read every card i've given it, and worked in every computer (macbook and linux desktops). I know that sounds simple, but I've tried a lot of different brands and half of them don't work. This one is by far my favorite.
