Arduino Nano USB C, Review and Testing

Arduino Nano USB C:

Arduino Nano USB C, Review and Testing- Just for you guys, I have launched my USB-C type Arduino Nano on Amazon with the brand name Electronic Clinic. So, when you buy the Arduino Nano, be sure to check for the brand name Electronic Clinic.

I have made its packaging quite premium.

Inside this box, you will find one Arduino Nano in an anti-static plastic bag and one original USB-C type cable.

Just check out the quality, the USB-C type port has added a touch of elegance to the Arduino Nano. For your convenience, I have already soldered the male headers, so you will get it ready to use. All you need to do is connect it to your computer and start programming.

If you buy this kind of Arduino Nano board, which does not come with a cable, USB-C type port, or soldered male headers. You will not be able to use any cable with it, and moreover its cable is not available everywhere. So, you will have to buy a separate cable for it, which means extra payment. And if the cable gets misplaced or lost, you will have to buy another one.

So, I must say, it is time to upgrade. Instead of purchasing this kind of Arduino Nano, buy a USB-C type Arduino Nano. Because USB-C type cables are readily available in every house nowadays, and you can easily get them from any mobile shop.
