Most of us use cables at least every day to reach from our chargers to our devices.
Short cables are sometimes best when you are using a power bank to charge your phone in your pocket (say 6” or so). Did you know that Anker sells cables these short? You can find the Lightning version here: https://goo.gl/Y6Cc3G
And the micro USB version here: https://goo.gl/pZg97D
Other times you need longer lengths, such as when charging your phone at night, where a cable anywhere from 3 feet to 2 meters may be necessary.
But sometimes you need an extremely long cable to reach distances far from the outlet. Perhaps you don’t have an Anker power bank handy, you’re in a hotel, there is not an outlet near your bed, but you want to use your phone in your bed. In cases like these, 10’ cables may become necessary.
But if you could only have one cable length, what would it be? There are obvious advantages and disadvantages for each. A 6” cable is not ideal for many situations, but a 10 foot cable is obnoxious for charging your phone via a power bank in your pocket. On the other hand, it isn’t to bad for inside as you can use a cable tie! For me, the ideal cable length is somewhere between 1m and 2m, as I rarely find myself using a cable longer than 2m, but I want to hear your opinions!
Let me know which length of cable you would choose if you could only have one!
Luckily, in real life, we can often have multiple lengths of cables. Fortunately, Anker has us all set to go and offers packs of micro USB cables in a variety of lengths!
This 5 pack offers all kinds of cable lengths!
On the flip side, Apple charges a premium for 3rd party manufacturers to make their cables MFI certified, which explains why Anker doesn’t currently offer an equivalent for iPhone and iPads users. That said, Anker does offer very premium and durable cables at an affordable price, and you can get some of them in packs with multiple cables, just not all different lengths.
Thanks for reading and have a great day! Don’t forget to let me know which cable length you’d choose if you could only have one.
