About the product
Ok, so it’s a cable, right. Well not just any old cable. This is a premium quality heavy duty cable. It’s capable of handling 2.4 Amps of charging current and a Data transfer speeds of up to 480 MBps (the fastest possible on USB 2.0) and also supports charging during data transfer. The quality is outstanding, both in the cable itself; also in the USB and Lightning connectors terminating it. The wires within our cable are claimed to be 21 AWG power and 30 AWG data; tinned copper wire cores and it’s a beautiful Red colour. Lets take a closer look at the electrical properties of the cable. ￼￼
The is the equation to measure the Voltage drop of our cable, This does NOT include any measurements for the end Plugs.
(2 * Cable Length * Copper Resistance) / 1000 * Current In Amps. So following the information we have, a 1.8 meter cable. The resistivity of the cable to be 43.135 mOhms/m (for 21 AWS) and the current we want to pass is 2.4 Amps. So our Volt Drop is 0.372 Volts, Or 7.4% Volt Drop.
This is a fabulous product, well worth it’s price. It easily managed to supply the a high capacity charge my iPad needs and the Data transfer speeds were as the seller advertised. There is nothing i can find to bring this cable down and therefor i give it 5*’s
