    I am having trouble finding an answer to this on Google Search.

    What is the USB port on k1 called.

    Why have I seen USB cables with the k1 ports shape on both ends of cord and seen cords with the k1 port shape on one end and at other end is a large rectangle.

    I had a Nexus 6P which came with both styles, I used one to connect to laptop, it had the rectangles/ oblong plugs, and the charger cord was oblong on both ends.

    The port on the KEYone is USB-C. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable. The USB-A is what plugs into a charging block or PC port.

    The USB port on the KEYone is called USB-C.

    The USB ports found on most computers (certainty any computer that's a couple years old) is USB-A.

    The ports that came with older phones were called Micro USB (also B I think).

    Obviously every cord has two ends.
    Micro USB always uses a USB-A connector on the charger/computer side.
    With USB-C, you get a choice. You can have USB-C on only one side, and use USB-A on the other. This maintains compatibility with old charges and phones.
    You can also use USB-C on both side of the cord. In this scenario, either side of the cord can be plugged into the phone.

    I read online, which isn't much to go on, LOL, that a charger cord with A/C ends, due to the A end, won't charge as fast as a cord with C on both ends?

    I think that's technically true. It probably depends on the phone and the charging block.
    It may only apply to devices that support USB Power Delivery (a fast charging method, I don't think the KEYone supports).
    Honestly I wouldn't worry about it too much for a phone. It's likely more of a concern with laptops as they need huge amounts of power, particularly if you want to charge AND use it at the same time.
