USB Type-C to Micro USB adapter

HI 

 

Before I get Robin (very soon Smiley Happy ) I would like to set up also a simple solution for car, where I already have "emergency" standard charger.

 

Would anybody here buy/use/recommend to buy something like this ?:

 

Original Xiaomi USB Type-C Male to Micro USB Female Adapter for Mobile Phone

I would very much appreciate any answer, good or bad. Item is so cheap that I'm a little bit worried, but also not to big.

I'm not sure about the Xiaomi adapter, but some friends of mine have the Oneplus adapter and it does the job...

Re: USB Type-C to Micro USB adapter

Thanks @Chacko1, I hoped you would answer me that you have tried it with your Robin.

 

Does your friends use this adapter with Robin?

I'm just asking, because a really want to be sure is safe after some known problems (Benson)with cables etc.

 

Now I have also find this site:

I know this part of forum is less populated Smiley Happy ,but I would really like opinion from Robin users who are already using adapters.

Please fellows...really sorry to bother you with this question (please read firs post): @Baymax@nomedent, @B-W, @david,...

 

Thank you all in advance!

I bought a Tech Matte usc-c cable from Amazon. Had a heck of a time using with external battery deal. Really didnt work. It's been fine with wall outlet charging, but my sample size is small.

Hey bud, I have one of these. It is absolutely exceptional! Cannot recommend it more. 

I do not work for Nextbit; I am an expert on the product though. PM if needed.

Contact me through PM if I am needed.

@NIBOR You can go thru the all of Benson Leung's reviews here on USB C wires and adaptors if you want more choices Smiley Happy

 

There's a huge range of what's good (and bad!) in this list. I bought my converter from that list (I would be upset if i fried my robin! Smiley Tongue)

Re: USB Type-C to Micro USB adapter

Hi, I have received Original Xiaomi USB Type-C Male to Micro USB Female Adapter and works OK.
This is more for unexpected situations when you have to charge Robin somewhere (car, restaurant, ...) with regular (old) micro usb. Otherwise, I will use at home official quick charger, which a really recommend to all deciding to buy with Robin! Don't hesitate...It's really quick.
