Understanding Different Types of USB Cables For Mobile Charging
Oct 18,2023, 294
Today's mobile devices come in a plethora of shapes and sizes, and so do their charging requirements, which can become even more confusing when attempting to choose the right charging cable for your mobile device, especially as a ton of mobile heavyweights like Samsung and Apple have discontinued providing chargers with new phones.

Most mobile devices have some form of USB connection, but what are all these different cables for? What difference does it make which one you use?

Making sense of all this can be somewhat complicated. But don't stress HGDINDIA are here to tell you everything you need to be aware of the various USB cables available and what they do.

USB Types And Their Uses:

Type A
The oldest standard, flat, rectangular interface, you'll find this on the end of most USB cables. The cable just inserts one way. Computers come packed with USB-A ports for connecting peripherals. Common on televisions, games consoles and older Smartphones and tablets.

Type B
A near square connecter, not often found amongst mobile devices aside from printers and devices that connect to computers. They aren't very common, and you are unlikely to need one for mobile electronic devices.

A small connector that for a time was standard for mobile devices, this is not true anymore, the most common place to see these now is on various portable Bluetooth speakers.

Another past standard, this has been on the decline in mobile and portable devices for a few years now. Even smaller than mini-USB. You may in any case find the odd phone, tablet, or USB battery packs and game controllers, however, most have moved onto USB-C.

The new standard and newest type of USB cable, a reversible connection. It packs more power throughput and has higher data transfer rates than previous USB types. USB-C can also handle multiple functions at the same time. Common on modern laptops, smartphones, and game consoles. This is the new industry standard.

Apple's proprietary connector for iPhone, AirPods and certain iPads. It's anything but a USB standard; however, it has been a mainstay on Apple devices since 2012. Interestingly newer iPad Star models presently use USB-C.

Don't Buy Cheap
When now is the ideal time to consider buying a new cable for your devices, don't be tempted to purchase the cheapest choice. Cheap cables suffer from multiple annoyances like sluggish charging, and unreliable performance. They could also break over time and can even be a fire hazard as well! Our HGDINDIA mobile cables are crafted with flexible materials, which allow them to be stretched and bent 10,000+ times without a break.

Cable Length is Key
Factor long, it is really important, shorter cables are great for portability, but may be a hindrance if it leaves you huddled next to a fitting socket. Equally a cable that is too lengthy can be a pain to carry, could tangle more and become an outing hazard. All HGDINDIA mobile cables come at a 1M standard, which we recommend as the sweet spot. Long enough for portability without encumbrance and long enough to reach a desk. Conveniently they are also made from anti-tangle TPE.

Choose The Right Connector and Adapters
Consider which devices you need a cable for, is it simply the one, maybe a few? Maybe you have a blend of old and new devices? Lightning? USB-C and Micro USB? Luckily for you HGDINDIA stock a choice to cover all these bases. You could find you are better off with a 3-in-1 cable to save money, and space in a bag and cut down on the number of wall sockets at home used. Our HGDINDIA covers all bases and may be the perfect choice for you.
