It can be said that the first attempt to plug a USB cable in the right way is one of the most underrated things in life. Although this process sounds simple and boring in theory, don’t forget our embarrassing attempts to connect USB cable or pen drive for many times, hoping to get the right solution.
Well, no more. In this article, we’ll discuss a simple technique that makes you think, “why haven’t I noticed this all the time?”. All in all, let’s get started.
In fact, the trick is very simple. All you have to do is look at the small square holes in the metal part of the connector. If you can see a metal connector inside, then my friend is always up.
On the other hand, if you see a layer of plastic in the hole, you can rest assured that this is the “bottom” side of the cable. In addition, the USB logo will always face up. So you can record this in your mind so that you can visually recognize the right side each time.
By the way, if you try to plug a USB cable into a CPU with a vertical port, you’ll be glad to know that the front (the front with the USB logo) is usually facing to the right.
Before usb-c completely replaces the earth (I hope it will become a reality in the next five years), this ingenious trick will plug into the USB cable as easily as pro, while saving you some time and unnecessary frustration.
