Product Description

This will allow you to charge micro USB smartphones, tablets and other devices such as the Raspberry Pi, Google Nexus or Blackberry Playbook at full speed from a powerful charger or computer USB socket. 

We also offer a USB Adaptor which converts a normal USB cable into a fast charge cable, and a Lightning fast charge cable which works with the latest Apple devices.

  • Follows the 'Dumb USB' specification', so allows you to get the full power from a mains or car USB charger which does not follow this specification, such as an Apple iPhone/iPad charger. Our mains chargers and many others already follow the Dumb USB specification, however this low resistance cable may still result in faster charging than ordinary cables.
  • A normal cable only allows charging at 0.5A from a computer, this allows you charge upto 2-3x faster.
  • If you have purchased a powerful mains or car USB charger but find that it gives poor performance or does not work with your micro USB device, this cable will most likely solve the problem.
  • Prevents your device going into 'data transfer' mode when connected to a computer, acting as a 'USB Condom' to prevent data theft / viruses when charging from an unknown USB socket. It works with all devices which charge from a micro USB socket including smartphones and satnavs from Samsung, HTC, Google, Sony, TomTom, etc. The 'OnePlus One' smartphone uses a different spec so is not compatible.
  • 22/24 AWG thick low resistance copper cable for high speed 2A charging with lower power loss than standard cables. Devices which charge at more than 1A will charge faster from the 30cm / 150cm cables than the extra long 250cm version.
  • Thicker plastic housing with extra reinforcement at both connector ends where cables commonly become worn

  1. The best you can get

    Posted by Petr on 11th Aug 2014

    I bought few of theese cables and i am absolutely happy with them.
    Even so happy that i am recommending them to my friends, or letting them using mine.
    From measuring on my phone i can see that theese cables can charge my phone at double speed, i did not see this power on any other kind of cables.


  2. Good to begin but tip came off inside phone after 6 months

    Posted by KO7 on 2nd Aug 2014

    I bought this cable in December 2013 and unfortunately the tip of the cable came off inside the micro charge section of my phone.

    I had previously written a glowing review of a PortaPow charger here and of the good service but unfortunately even though it hasn't even been a year's use, PortaPow suggested I purchase another product and they would replace the cable.

    I would expect them to replace the cable without me having to purchase another product, this is standard consumer regulation. Shame rally because up until now I have been happy with them.

    RESPONSE FROM PORTAPOW: Sorry to hear of this issue. A 1 year guarantee is supplied with each cable and we can replace a broken one under warranty, we would not have told you to just buy a new one. You have chosen to stay anonymous but if you would like to get in contact with us we can resolve your issue.


  3. Does a fine job

    Posted by DJ_Eatch on 24th Jul 2014

    This is the prefect charging cable to go with the portapow chargers that have a fast charging port (will work on other types and normal chargers too) and works at full speed by using the "dumb" connection option - tricks the phone/device into thinking it's an ac charger and allows the full dose :-)


  4. Double Charge Rate

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Jul 2014

    Tested the 30cm cable against a generic cable of similar length.
    Portapow cable was charging at 700ma vs 300-350ma from generic cable out of all laptop usb ports.
    Good tight fit at the phone end, the cable looks and feels pretty solid and I think it should last a good while, worth the money just for the fast charging rate.


  5. Told I could not charge my phone while switched on with long cable.

    Posted by Keith Burr on 23rd Jul 2014

    Purchased this as my supplied 8 foot cable with my car holder would not charge my phone when using sat nav in fact my phone slowly lost charge during the trip even though it was powered by a 2A USB car charger. The OEM stated that it was impossible to charge a phone using sat nav with a long cable I would have to have the phone switched off to get any charge. Enter Portapow their 8 foot cable easily provide enough power that my phone will charge about 20% over an hour trip even when using sat nav and phone.


  6. works fine

    Posted by Matt on 13th Jul 2014

    combined with a VeetopĀ® Dual USB High Speed to charge/use my Samsung Note 2 and they do the job well. Able to run satnav, play music via bluetooth and the phone charges quickly too.


  7. Does the Job

    Posted by Mark on 9th Jul 2014

    A good price, a good length cable and a quick international sale to the antipodes!


  8. Does what it promises

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jul 2014

    It's a cable... for charging... and it does just that.

    Great if you're charging in your car.


  9. Best charging cable I own

    Posted by Carlos on 3rd Jul 2014

    After having the cable for a couple months I can say it is the best cable I own, it charges my mobile phone the same as the original but being almost twice as long, so it is indeed better than the original for charging.
    Works FANTASTIC with my external battery as well.
    Recommended.
    There is a small con, the micro USB connector comes off the phone from time to time, but still 5 stars


  10. Good product and good service

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jul 2014

    Working perfect with my Nexus.
