    What would you use this for?
    This looks like it's against USB spec, female type C should only ever be on a cable that has male type C at the other end
    If you plug an A-C cable into this you've got a male to male type A-A cable which is great for blowing stuff up

    When you want to connect a Type-C external USB memory or HDD into an old computer, you can use this little converter to convert it back to a Type-A plug.

    But I don't see why it can blow stuff up? Could you please further explain?

      Ignoring type-C for the moment
      Cables should have a host at one end and a slave/peripheral at the other.
      Type-A male plugs into hosts, Type-B (micro, mini or full size) male plugs into peripherals.
      The host will always supply 5V to the peripheral.
      In the case of an A-A cable, both ends are hosts so both are supplying power, and neither is designed to have power coming in, which is when the smoke can come out.

      Now with type-c they've included protections that mean plugging two hosts into each other doesn't cause these problems.

      Type-c flash drive is a good point, I don't know how you're meant to use that on devices with no type-c, maybe you'd need to go through a hub not a passive adaptor.
