How to choose a USB Type-C cable

When choosing cables, it is of paramount importance to be guided by the parameters and capabilities of the device with which you will operate it, as well as to understand the purpose of the cable. Main criteria to look out for:

By format.
The correct format will affect the power received for recharging devices such as a laptop or tablet. Some model compatibility may vary: USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 (Gen 2). Adapters, in turn, allow you to output various data (HDMI, VGA, Thunderbolt, DisplayPort, Ethernet and others) from the Type-C slot.

By wire type.
The cable can be of a standard type or a combination.

By lenght.
The length should allow the cable to remain free between devices, without any tension and chafing, which increase the risk of mechanical damage.

By form.
You can choose any cable. It can be flat, twisted or round.

By voltage.
The current generated from the device is indicated in amperes (A) and is indicated in the parameters and on the cable packaging. Data transfer as well as charging speed depend directly on the maximum bandwidth.

By power.
It is recommended to consider the maximum possible cable power.

Based on materials.
The materials from which Type-C cables are made also affect the data transfer rate as well as the sound quality. The outer coating and the level of resistance to various kinks are influenced by the cable sheath. Most often used for it:

  • Plastic.
  • Metal.
  • Textiles.
  • Leather.

In this case, you should focus on personal preferences.
