    Where are you going to find an adapter that acts has a SATA device AND has a USB-C host?

    What exists is USB-C device to SATA host.

    What you want is well, impossible and SATA doesn't speak NVMe, you would need a beefy FPGA if it even is possible, because NVMe was created to remove/reduce the limitations that SATA imposes due to its age and legacy.

    So, the device you posted (1st link) is a PCIe NVMe to USB-C converter. It will take something like the Samsung 970 EVO NVMe, attached to the card, and then connect that to a USB-C port on a computer through a USB-C cable ( https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_...field-keywords=usb-c+cable&sprefix=usb-c+,aps ).

    I'm confused by 2.5 SATA. Do you perhaps mean a 2.5" SATA drive? 2.5" SATA drives usually connect by just a SATA cable (for a standard computer) or SATA ribbon for a laptop.

    What do you want to do with the NVMe drive + NVMe to USB-C converter? Just plug it in to use as an removable, external disk drive?
