pretty pointless, there are much smaller USB A -> C adapters available, which would make the original adapter smaller than your custom one. e.g. aliexpress.com/item/1005002056296307.html

Very enjoyable video! But I feel you overlooked that, at least in my life, the things that wants to be connected with a micro USB cable are much more numerous and expensive than the things that connect with their own male micro USB plug. Thus, changing the female port on some headphones for example would have been a welcomed addition!

Might i ask why you just didnt move the resistor to the other pad to the left (5:58 remove resistor from r1 and move it to solder pads r2) if you are concerned about soldering and desoldering surface mount, cut the trace to the right, and jumper the top of the resistor to the right pad with a simple solder blob..

But why? If the device was designed to use USB-A, then it won't get any advantage of USB-C. It's like putting a SATA drive on a PCI-E slot.

FYI there was a slew of non-standard USB 1.0 devices from 1995 -1998, they were generally very poor implementations of the specifications, just to be the first to market.

To think in 2021 we have to resort to this kind of hack just because Apple decided they could make more money from cloud services by removing UsbA that 99% of ppl use everyday. Apple: 'Usb C is the future' yes but I use computers in the present, not the future you twats! And all the other sheep companies copied them.

I would like to remove the AC retractable plug with a usb type socket to charge the lamp through my mobile charger. Any suggestion?

Is there a way to mark the female USB-C port to be a sub device? For Example when DIY'ing a USB-C to USB-C Keyboard cable, I wouldn't want to have to check the Cable to be plugged in correctly but to have the female USB-C port of the keyboard send out sub-device infos no matter what way around the cable is connected.

It's eminently possible to hand-solder SMT resistors with steady hands and an OptiVISOR. 0805/2012 components are easiest to work with although I've gone down as far as 0201/0603, albeit with a 25-power binocular microscope and a _very_ fine-point soldering iron.

Apple sucks. Type-C is where it's at. Even if you mod Lightning there's not much place you can use it since iPhone doesn't have otg and you need MFI license from Apple to use Lightning accessories. And since Ironically Macs use Type-C they don't use lightning either. So yeah, no freedom with Apple.
