Out of the many types of USB charging cables, ones with USB-A or USB-C compatibility are among the best.
USB-C charging cables are becoming increasingly popular 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.
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.
To buy the best charging cable, you should look at its price, material, charging type, compatibility with your devices, power output, and length. These are all important 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 6 ft. Tough Lightning™ Cable is the best choice for you!

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 encounters. The more resistance that is encountered by this electricity, the less power it ultimately ends up providing to your device.
Although this isn’t always the case, it is usually what happens with 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 (3.3-6.6 ft.) in length, so you shouldn’t experience slow charging with your cable, as long as you purchase it from a respectable manufacturer.
If you’re in the market for a new charging cable, then it’s totally worth it to shell out a few extra bucks for a durable, high-quality option that you’re confident will last a long time. More expensive cables tend to be made of sturdier material with a longer lifespan; plus, they likely won’t be damaged or lose charging efficiency as quickly as cheaper cables.
However, you should keep in mind that this is not always the case. There are some pricier cables out there that do not charge your devices as quickly as they should, or last as long as advertised. In the same vein, some super-cheap cables that may not seem like much at first glance may actually provide a great deal of value. Be sure to research the material that the cable is made out of before purchasing it, and see what other customers have to say about it.
Again, price shouldn’t be the sole deciding factor when it comes to buying a new charging cable – there are plenty of other important factors to consider too. But it’s definitely wise to spend a few extra bucks when you know that a more expensive charging cable will provide the durability and charging efficiency that you need for all your devices.
Ensure your iPhone, iPad, or other device is sufficiently charged and powered on. Check that the charging cable is properly and securely plugged into your device, and that it isn’t wet, dirty, frayed, or damaged in any other way.
Make sure your device’s Lightning™ port is clean and unobstructed by dirt, dust, or other debris. Your cable may not connect properly to your device if the port isn’t clean. Only use or store the cable in cool, dry environments, away from heat sources, water, or other liquids. Extremely hot or cold temperatures, as well as high humidity, can damage the cable and physically deform it over time, making it impossible to connect it to your device properly.
If your PWRSync 6 ft. Tough Lightning™ Cable still won’t work properly, then an issue may be present with the cable’s internal circuitry. Do not attempt to disassemble, modify, or repair the cable by yourself. Instead, please call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-855-GO-TZUMI. An experienced customer support representative will be happy to assist you.
If your device is charging slower than expected, check that your cable is securely plugged into both a USB-A power source and your chosen device. Make sure your chosen USB-A power source has enough power for your device, and that it isn’t wet, dirty, damaged, or visibly malfunctioning in any way.
You should also ensure that the cable isn’t pulled, bent, or tangled, as this may prevent optimal charging. If your device’s charging port is obstructed by dirt, dust, or debris, then charging may be slower than expected. Keep the cable completely straight and untangled, when possible, in order to keep electricity flowing to your device through the cable as quickly as possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Service team at any time if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Never use or store your cable in environments with extremely hot or cold temperatures, as these may wear down the cable and severely damage its nylon over time. Do not use or store it near fires or other heat sources, since they can destroy the cable, and possibly cause a fire or explosion if a device is being charged. Do not put the cable anywhere near children or pets; the cable is not a toy and could present a choking hazard.
Only use the cable in cool, dry areas, far away from water, heat sources, or sharp objects. Anywhere in your home, car, or office should work just fine.
