I'm not sure I need a use for this kind of cable. Am I behind in IT literacy? USB 2.0. Isn't that an old spec. Not that I'm a Sam of London (RIP) just asking whether it is up to spec.
It's a Beta expert deal which seem to be exempt from displaying the RRP. Anyone know if this is a real deal
?

Usb 2 is fine for normal use, be a little slow if you’re sending gigs of data. Can’t complain for a couple of quid for usb c.
what happened to Sam?

Rip? Really? I've heard of him!

As for the expert thing, I hand noticed that happening (or not, as the case may be)
Thought it was lightening and then realise it wasn't

I must be missing something here, why would you waste a USB-C port cabled up to a micro USB 2.0 device?
Before the markets open tomorrow can anyone tell me the gold content in this please?

Because the device you’re plugging in is micro usb? It’s also not wasting it, it’s not a permanent connection and can be removed if you require something else to be connected to said usb c port.
Could also be used with pd chargers to charge/use older electronic items

My point was, it's rather more likely you're going to have lessor USB ports available that would be more suitable.
But as @Neostar points, I guess it could send a bigger charge, assuming USB 2 micro can safely handle it.

some devices only have usb c, like macs, tablets and other thin laptops. the amount of people with a macbook and an old andorid phone must be pretty slim though

I have an ultra slim laptop with usb c and I have a few of the retro handheld emulation consoles, this will be fine for transferring roms.
