I’m very impressed with the looks of this type-A to type-C cable and it’s surprising flexibility given the thickness of the cable. The red finish also enables me to quickly grab the right cable when plugged into my multi-port charger. I will keep this with my type-c battery Bank so that I will be able to charge it off of normal type-A ports while traveling while I do not have access to type c charging ports.
The lifetime warranty that comes with this cable is also a testament to Ankers quality products and dedication to their customers.
We are so confident in our premium double-braided cables, we back each one with a lifetime warranty and provide friendly, easy-to-reach support.”
Compared with other type-c cables that come with your devices I believe this cable stands Head and Shoulders over the competition especially when you factor in the lifetime warranty and relatively low cost.
to conclude a highly recommend this cable to anybody looking for a type-A to type-c especially if you’re looking to charge your type-c devices off a normal type-a port. It will give you a lot more flexibility when charging your devices.
Now if only we could get double braided C-C or thunderbolt 3 cables in the mix we would be all set. I really like the look, durability and different color options of the braided cables. The different colors make finding the right cable thoughtless.
Yes, I totally agree. I want c-c cables in double braided, color option I would rather have Yellow like the one that comes with the liberty+ earbuds. Yellow stands out more and can easily be seen, where as I already have a ton of black/red/gold cables…or even blue cables would be a nice option along with the yellow
Exactly when is a matter of debate but I can tell you this from experience.
I had a tablet that charged very well with short cables while using the tablet.
I also have one of Anker’s 6ft cables. That cable didn’t provide enough juice to charge the tablet. It could hardly keep up with what the tablet itself was using.
While I’ve found no max current for the micro cable I mentioned, consider this:
I have yet to find a device with an USB-micro port that takes over 2.1 amps. Yes it is theoretically possible the plug delivers more juice. The generation devices that uses the micro port are just not drawing more current.
The cable in this thread is rated 3A, and unlike USB-micro it’s not just a theoretical number. There are USB-C devices that draw 3A (I even have one that draws 4A)
So, I would have hoped for thicker wires for the longer cables. Personally I think the premium aspect of this cable is it’s physical strength.
