How To Organize And Clean Up Every Loose Charging Cable In Your Home

It’s best to choose more over less when it comes to the number of USB ports for wall chargers and car chargers. Browse all of Case-Mate’s fast charging accessories, stylish phone cases and more for your iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or Google Pixel today! All of our fast charging accessories are certified as USB Power Delivery, which means it provides safe and effective charging for your device.

Since they are usually interchangeable, you can use different cables for your different devices. Unfortunately, Apple’s mobile devices don’t offer enough support for USB OTG. However, you can still connect some external storage devices to your iPhone or iPad. You can use a USB 2.0 device on a USB 3 port or a USB 3 device on a USB 2.0 port, but no configuration provides the benefit of additional speed. USB 3 has also gone through several “generations” that are confusing to follow.

You just need to replenish the amount of energy you used that day. For home charging, the BEVs sold today can handle between 30 amps and 48 amps. That’s why it’s important to know how much power your EV can accept when you buy. However, you shouldn’t necessarily let the charging speed of your current EV determine your purchase, as your next EV may accept more power.

18W may not seem that powerful, but it saves you quite a bit of time compared to normal 5V/1A or 5V/2A charging, especially when you’re using your iPhone while charging. But for 20V/5A high-power charging, you need a 5A-rated USB-C to USB-C cable with an E-Marker chip to identify the cable and current capabilities. So, be sure to check the current cable rating when you want to quickly charge powerful devices like MacBook Pro. Be sure to give yourself room to expand by purchasing a charger with more ports than you currently need. This will help you maintain your goal of reducing clutter by only using a power outlet when expanding your inventory of electronic devices that need to be charged.

Take a look at our products and select only the best for your smartphones and laptops. The 18W magnetic cable of Chargeasap’s USB-C cable set gives users options to choose between rays, micro USB or USB-C, allowing their phone to charge quickly and good data transfer speeds. To test the data transfer capabilities from USB-C to USB-A cables, we connected the USB-C end to the 13-inch laptop and the USB-A end to an Aukey USB-C to USB-A adapter. Next, we connect the adapter to the Samsung T3 and run AJA System Test Lite. To test power consumption, we used the ammeter, Pixel and an Anker PowerPort II wall charger and recorded the maximum energy consumption measurements on the ammeter.

This charger folds just like the MagSafe Duo, but has a dedicated 3W Qi pad for your AirPods, plus the MagSafe pad and a standard-speed Apple Watch charger. While it includes its own storage bag (fits the 3-in-1 wireless pad, charger, and cable), it folds small enough to fit into backpacks without taking up too much space. The Mophie charger is the successor to MagSafe Duo that Apple should have made. If you want a MagSafe charger to fully charge your iPhone 15W fast, plus fast charging for the Apple Watch Series 7, Belkin’s MagSafe Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 is my best bet.

Do you now mainly have USB-C devices in your home, can you lose or reduce the number of mini-USB or micro-USB cables? If you’re worried about needing an old cable, keep one of each, which is probably all you need. In line with our spring cleaning problem, I follow two important principles to clean up our increasingly iPhone adapter connected home. First, consolidate as many cables and chargers as possible into one charging device. And secondly, do the hard work of untangling that nest of wires and never let it get tangled up again. This means safely disposing of cables you don’t need and making sure the remaining cables are neatly stored.

This is even more important if you plan to charge multiple devices at once, as you’ll need enough power for all devices. Making sure you have the right charging stand is more of a headache if your phone doesn’t come with a charger in the box or if you’re looking for something that works well with all of your devices. The best place to start your search is on the manufacturer’s specification sheet. However, there are no guarantees here: some list the standard of charging required for maximum speeds, while others don’t. Smartphones often give you a generic indicator such as ‘fast charging’ or ‘fast charging’, but that is not always useful.
