A few dollars saved at the time of investing in a new power cable can translate into many hours of needless waiting and watching the mobile phone while it is charging. It is completely worth it to look at the charging speed of a cable before purchasing. Similarly, every one of us has many devices at home and office that use the same cable. It is always prudent to purchase a cable that can serve most purposes in the same cost. A power cable becomes a part of the life as everything from a portable speaker to the mobile phone is charged with the cable. A good quality cable can make life easier and enhance the experience of all the devices one uses it with. Most importantly, a cable is not a disposable accessory and you need not have to replace it every week. The durability of the power cable can save much more money over time than a cheaper one. A lot of money is spent on the e readers and mobile phones and it is equally important to take care of those devices by using a good quality accessories.
The faster processors and bigger screens of the smart phones have put a drain on the batteries of the devices. Many users now prefer to carry Anker power banks to replenish the batteries on the go. The power banks have considerable bigger batteries than any of the other devices which makes their charging an even more time consuming process. Even a good charger and a good cable requires an average of 2 hours to charge a normal power bank. This charging time increase many folds when the paraphernalia used for charging is not of good standard. Most importantly, the lifespan of a power bank is greatly reduced by using it with substandard cables. In short, it affects the time of charging, life span of the power bank and may also harm it in some cases.
A substandard cable would not only break down after a short while but can actually harm the device it was being used with. The run time of the lithium batteries would gradually decrease when constantly charged with cheap, bad quality power cables. Moreover, the time taken by a phone to charge to full extant depends mainly upon the power cable along with the charger. A good quality charger would be rendered ineffective and would charge at only a fraction of the speed it is supposed to, when used not with an equally good charging cable. Most of us use smart phones nowadays, which need to be charged almost every day. If the cable increases the charge time by only 15 minutes, consider the effect over the weeks and months. One would have to spend hundreds of extra hours waiting for the phone to charge. A state of the art Anker powerline micro USB cord is just one example of the good quality cable which can make all our lives a little convenient.
All of us need to transfer media and other personal data from a laptop to a tablet / mobile and vice versa. Power cables also work as data transfer cables. All cables do not support the transfer of data and therefore cannot be used for this purpose. Many of those that can be used for data synchronisation between devices offer a very low transfer rate which happens to be a completely avoidable handicap. A good quality micro USB power line performs the dual function device charging and data transfer between devices at a fast bit transfer rate. It is prudent to choose such a cable for obvious reasons: First, it saves cost because no more a second data transfer mechanism (micro SD reader, data transfer cable, internet data package) is needed and secondly for the convenience this bundle offers.
The prospective buyer needs to check for his exact requirements and find a power micro USB cable that caters to all or most of his needs. Most of the users need would need a cable that works fine with their power banks, mobile phones, tablets and other devices for charging as well as data transfer between devices. Many such multipurpose cables are available in market, which differ in price as well as quality and durability. A good quality cable with fast charging feature can greatly improve the user experience while a substandard one is permanent frustration.
