IPhone charger cable

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't put a cheap charger cable onto an expensive phone in case the power output is not correct for the appliance. I prefer to use a wireless charger on my Samsung phone. Brilliant piece of kit with motorised arms to grab any size phone so it couples as a cradle, particularly useful when you are using the maps function. These clip onto your air vents or failing that (you'd have issues with say a Supra) sucker onto the screen. I wouldn't want my phone suckered though as its heavy and suckers tend to give way at any moment, though more usually in hot weather.

These chargers cost from low £ twenties up.

PS - the picture is for reference an not the actual unit I own so I wouldn't know if this particular make/model has motorised arms. Also if you aren't in a hurry you'd be able to get them cheaper direct from Chinese suppliers via Ali-express over say Amazon or eBay in the UK.

I'm just on about the lead you plug into the plug socket or USB on the PC

In which case, I'd go for the cheap cable every time.

Its the charger that determines and regulates the 5V output and current modulation. The cable will only downgrade that with variable resistance so wouldn't have any potential to harm any plugged in appliance.

For anyone regularly using google or apple maps, the charging cradle is an ideal way to go.

I'd get the beefy cables. After marker jobbies that have extra bracing and some fancy cable weave. Always been the best charging cables.

I hear @tayr swings his around in a circular motion singing girls just wanna have fun..

 

You got a link to these beefy cables

I'd be choosing something like this.

For any phone. Android etc. Usual cables are just weak as shit. Especially for in the car when you're throwing shit around.
