Anker PowerLine II USB-C to USB 3.1 Cable(3ft) - Anker US

I have an Apple iPhone XS Max, but I am seeking a well-rounded cable that can handle everyday use for everyday devices, like the iPad, iPhone, and possibly future Apple products that use the lightning cable and USB-A charging. On that note, it is still unknown whether Apple will begin utilizing USB-C fully across all their devices, but if need be, I will make the switch to USB-C cables. In regards to micro USB’s, again, I find no need for them as I do not specifically use devices that utilize micro USB’s.After researching many different lightning cables, we narrowed in on the top ten options, which we put through extensive side-by-side testing. After using each one to charge various generations of iPhones and iPads, we determined our preferences for length, cable material, and how efficient each cable was at charging. Through our testing, we could see the best and worst qualities in each model. Charge Fast: MFi certification and strict quality testing ensure your Apple devices are charged safely, at their fastest possible speed.

Anker iPhone Charging Cable, PowerLine II Lightning Cable

Pair with a 30W USB-C charger to power up your MacBook Air in just over 2 hours. (Charger not included) Apple’s own Lightning cables are thinner and more flexible than the competition, with extremely small connectors on the end. These may seem like boons, but Apple’s own cables have also earned a reputation for being easier to break and fray — so while both the USB-C and USB-A cables performed well in our tests, we think most people would be better off with a more durable option from a third party. With all that said, at the end of the day, I am your average customer that is looking for a versatile and quality cable that I can use in my day-to-day life. And as your average customer, I was confused on what truly differentiated the Powerline cables from each other (hence this thread).Belkin’s standard BoostCharge cables are similar to Anker’s Powerline II — no frills, just good cables at a good price. They use the same standard rubber sheath you’d find on other cables in this price range, and the same standard joints. Personally, I am aware USB-C cables enable faster charging, but I do not have any USB-C wall chargers, or anything for that matter, that uses USB-C–and I am not sure if I am prepared to make the jump if using USB-A is going to be more versatile for me to use in the long run. Satechi’s cable is clearly designed to be a durable monster, similar to Nomad’s Kevlar cables. However, while the Satechi performed just as well as its competition in charging and data transfer, we found it much stiffer than every other cable we tested, without the extra-strong joints of the Nomad cables. It’s a good option — we just prefer the more flexible nature of the other cables we tested.

Over the course of a month, we tested each of these cables with our iPhone 7, iPhone 8 Plus and 9.7-inch iPad Pro using a number of different metrics. Most important to a charging cable is, of course, its ability to charge and transfer data at a reasonable rate. So we used each cable in conjunction with a 65-watt power adapter to charge our devices from dead to 50%, timing the result. We also used them to transfer a 1.5GB video file from our computer to the device using iTunes, timing the process as well. After publication, Belkin sent us another cable, which exhibited no fraying out of the box. They tell us this isn’t a common issue, and they’re looking into it.Them Ohm’s law, the voltage drop across a cable is fixed (at time of manufacturing bit increases with use) a property of the cable, but that fixed absolute Voltage drop becomes a relatively smaller impact at higher voltage, therefore the cable matters less for 60W 20V than it does for say 10W 5V, which is why it matters more to use a shorter Type A than a PD 60W C cable. MFi certification means total peace of mind because PowerLine II is completely Apple authorized. Designed to work flawlessly with iPhone, iPad, iPod or any device with a Lightning port. Mophie’s USB-C and USB-A cables offer a braided design in three different lengths, but otherwise didn’t stand out much from the competition — they’re thinner than Anker’s cables without being more flexible, and the warranty lasts only two years. But they performed well in our tests, so if you like the design, they’ll do the job.
