Buying Guide: Lightning™ to USB-C Cables


What is the best type of charging cable?

USB charging cables with USB-A or USB-C compatibility are some of the best choices for charging your devices.

USB-C charging cables are growing in popularity thanks to their fast-charging capabilities, easy-to-use designs, and sturdy, high-quality builds, with many consumers preferring them over USB-A, USB-B, and micro-USB cables. However, USB-A cables were originally the main type of charging cables that most phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices would use for charging. USB-A ports can still be found on many newer devices.

  • Extra length for added reach.
  • High-speed charging for a jolt of power whenever you need it.
  • Power up your favorite Apple devices with the Lightning port.
  • Protects your cable from the wear and tear of daily use.

Lightning™ cables are also some of the most common cables around, thanks to the ever-growing catalog of Apple products that typically require a Lightning™ connection. These two types of cables tend to be incredibly durable, and are some of the most highly rated cable types out there.

Depending on the type of device you have, it’s likely that you’ll have either a USB-C or Lightning™ cable laying around your house or car somewhere. A lot of them may have a USB-A plug, but remember that more companies in the future will likely turn to USB-C charging cables for newer products.

How do I buy a good charging cable?

In order to find the best charging cable for all your device-powering needs, pay attention to its:

  • price
  • material
  • charging type
  • compatibility with your devices
  • power output
  • length

These are all key factors to keep in mind and compare when looking at different charging cables, whether it’s a Lightning™, USB-C, or USB-A cable. If you want reliable and streamlined charging for all your Apple devices, then our PWRSync 10 ft. Tough Lightning™ Cable is the best choice for you!

Along with an eco-friendly & PVC-free design, this lightweight and durable cable is the perfect choice for keeping your Apple products charged and ready to go all day long.

Does a longer cable mean slower charging?

A longer cable can, in some cases, lead to slower charging of your devices.

The longer your charging cable is, the greater the resistance that the electricity passing through it will encounter. In turn, the more resistance that is encountered by the electricity, the less power your cable will provide to your phone, tablet, or other device.

This isn’t always what happens, but it’s common for a lot of charging cables on the market. The longer they get, the less power that reaches your device. Luckily, most cables are under 1-2 meters (3.3-10.10 ft.) in length, so you shouldn’t experience slow charging with your cable, as long as you purchase it from a respectable manufacturer.

Are more expensive charging cables worth it?

If you’re in search of a new charging cable, then it’s totally worth it to pay a bit more for a durable, high-quality option that you’re 100% sure will last a long time. More expensive cables tend to be made of sturdier material with a longer lifespan. Not only that, but they’re also less likely to be damaged or lose charging efficiency as quickly as cheaper cables.

However, you should remember that this is not always the case. There are some costly cables that won’t charge your devices as quickly as they should, nor last as long as advertised. On the other hand, there are a few less expensive cables that may not seem like much at first glance, but they can actually provide a lot of unexpected value. Make sure to thoroughly research the material that the cable is made out of before purchasing it, and see what other customers have to say about it. Braided nylon cables that have a plethora of positive customer reviews are almost always a good pick.

Again, price shouldn’t be the only factor to keep in mind when buying a new charging cable, as there are plenty of other important things to consider as well. It’s definitely smart, though, to spend a few extra bucks for a more expensive charging cable that’ll give you ultra-durability and streamlined charging efficiency for all your devices.
