USB cable question?
Posted by: DewGuy
Date: November 24, 2020 05:30PM
We recently purchased a new cell phone, a TracFone Samsung Galaxy A01, that has USB-C. The charger has a short cable, USB-C for the phone connection and USB-A for the charger connection. This cable is too short to be useful and we'd like to get a longer one. Do we have to look for anything specific, other than it having the proper USB plugs? Thanks.

Any cable with the correct connectors will work

Anker is a usual recommendation.

Yup, for basic charging of a phone you don't have to worry about the specs of the cable. It's only when you're dealing with charging larger products, like laptops, where the specs come into play (i.e. does it support 30w, 60w, 87w 100w, and is it USB 2.0 or 3.x for data?).

These are pretty slick... and one cable has all for C, Micro, and Lightning to USB-A too.
