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.

In Conclusion

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
