Why Good Cables Make a Big Difference to Fast Charging

What is Fast Charging?
We’re going to write a detailed blog about this 

Does your cable really affect how fast your phone charges?
With the exception of color and size, cables tend to look the same. Yes, one might be lightning and yes, one might be USB, but otherwise there isn’t much difference. Right?

Wrong. And it’s all for a beautiful reason – it’s what’s on the inside that counts!

Why do good charging cables matter for fast charging?
There are four wires inside your USB charging cables, including data wires and charging wires. How much power your cable carries is decided by the size of one of these charging cables; a standard cable is 28/28 gauge, whilst good cables for fast charging have 28/24 gauge.

The standard wires only carry around .5A, whereas fast charging cables can carry up to 2A. This is because even though 24 seems a lower number than 28, they’re actually 60% bigger.

cable size matters!
Unfortunately so, especially when pairing with a purpose-built fast charger.

It’s a pretty simple idea. Bigger cables carry more current, and so can transfer more current to your phone in the same amount of time. This means it will charge faster.

How can I check if I have a fast charging cable?
There are a few ways of doing this, including downloading an app. One simple test is – are you still using the cable that came with your phone? If so, and your phone didn’t come equipped with a fast PD GaN charger (or you’re using a cable from an older phone, shock horror), then you might want to change things up.

If you aren’t sure and want to cover all bases, you can buy new, durable and fast charging ready lightning cables and USB-C cables from RAVPower! If you want to know more about our fast charging range, click here.
