The SS USB is a pen shaped USB, which presumably is designed to be slightly less awkward to handle than a standard sized one.
The common super-speed USB has data transmission rates of 5 gigabits per second (5 Gbit/s). It is capable of bandwidth of up to 480 megabytes per second (480 Mbit/s) in the near field, and up to 15 feet it would transmit at about 400 megabytes per second (400 Mbit/s).
What this means for the average user? They’ll have some fun with their flash drive while sitting on the couch watching TV or lying in bed spending time on electronics before they go back downstairs.
An SS USB is a method of transmitting data across USB wires. It transmits at similar speeds to an ordinary USB, but uses superior hardware that regenerates the signal when a line goes bad, effectively making it not susceptible to EMI interference or exposure.
To transmit and retrieve data over long distances wirelessly requires extensive high-frequency transmissions that produce an electromagnetic field around them. That field can have unintended consequences by essentially blasting the same frequency into nearby equipment such as TV’s and computers for example. To counteract this, an SS USB has a dedicated physical shield around its jack which protects all near by devices from harmful radiation emitted by the transmission process.
An SS USB is better because it offers improved data transfer speeds and a standard that is maintained by the governing body.
The max bandwidth of an USB 2.0 specification is 480 MB/s. The max bandwidth of Thunderbolt 1’s specification is 10 Gb/s, or 1667 MB/s. In other words, what takes 8 seconds to move with an USB 2.0 device will take only 1 second to move with a device powered by Thunderbolt1, all else equal!
An SS USB operates at a more efficient voltage of 5 volts while a USB operates at 5.1 volts.
SS use is increasing in frequency for those devices requiring low-power consumption and is available now on some new smart phones from Apple, HTC, Lenovo, Xiaomi (Note 2) and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Note 4), as well as on several HP Chromebooks. For devices that can support bi-directional data transfer speeds up to 480 Mbit/s – such as SD players, external drives and DVD players – the advantage with an SS USB over an ordinary one is less power consumption and lower heat generation because it doesn’t need to power the heavy logic circuitry used by a bus master device such as a PC.
A USB is for data syncing, a SS USB is for charging.
SS stands for Second Socket, meaning that it’s the second device plugged in to power and charge your device. The SS USB can be plugged into either a wall outlet or computer port to provide power and can also be used separately like a normal thumb drive when not being charged. So the difference is mainly convenience of having two plugs available at all times for both syncing and charging purposes – as long as there are sufficiently powerful chargers coming out of those two outlets!
The SS in SSUSB stands for SuperSpeed and applies only to hardware products where the computer and device are “plugged in” together. This hardware speed protocol was certified back on July 2010, with an implementation date of January 1, 2013. A USB will use its own speed level depending on what it’s connected to (which could be anything from 7 megabytes per second to 480 megabytes per second). In other words, an SSUSB can be plugged into any type of terminal that takes an USB plug-in–it doesn’t have to be plugged into another SS or HSS series product.
There are no differences except for the type of connector.
An SS USB is a style that plugs in with an S-Type connector and has wire on both sides to accommodate faster data rates, but it doesn’t actually provide any benefits over a regular USB cable. That being said, you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong one because they’re otherwise identical in electrical performance. Hope this helped!
The SS USB has a custom connector for future-proof functionality.
Some of the highest data transfer rates in the world are found with SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which is up to 10 times faster than Hi Speed USB 2.0! In fact, you’ll even get some extras like File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and simultaneous data transfer capability, which means one SuperSpeed 3.0 can do two things at once when using FTPs!
SS USB stands for secure storage, which means that when the device is not in use it deletes all data from its memory chip. You can’t buy one at your local electronics store like you can with a standard flashdrive. Ditto for UUSB, which stands for unsecure storage meaning when the device is not in use it stores all your information on the memory chip until you need to access it again at which point all data will be deleted once more. This type of usb might also be used by people looking to obtain sensitive information illegally as they are less likely to attract suspicion because it looks like a regular usb drive with function limitations such as low amounts
SS USBs are encrypted.
An encrypted USB flash drive does not allow data on it to be accessed without the corresponding password or key, while an unencrypted USB doesn’t encrypt the data stored on it and is readable by any computer with a USB port. This means that if you share an unencrypted USB with someone, he’s able to access any folder located on your device – including folders containing personal information which should only be shared with those you trust fully.
