PortaPow Fast Charge Micro USB Cable

55.00 Grams
Calculated at checkout

Product Description

This will allow you to charge micro USB smartphones, tablets and other devices such as the Asus Transformer T100, 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. 
  • 20 AWG thick low resistance copper cable for high speed charging upto 3A with lower power loss than standard cables. The 300cm cable will be faster than standard quality cables of similar length but shorter cables will be faster.
  • Thicker plastic housing with extra reinforcement at both connector ends where cables commonly become worn.

Updated January 2015 - all versions are 20AWG, which is significantly lower resistance than typical 24 or 28 AWG cables (lower is better with AWG ratings). This allows faster charging for devices which charge at more than 1A, such as tablets and large smartphones. A few phones use the 'Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0' spec which uses a special mains charger for even faster charging. This charge-only cable is not compatible, see our charge+sync cable instead for use with these chargers.


OnePlus One Smartphones

These phones have very specific requirements for charging. For the very fastest charging speeds a very low resistance cable such as our 30cm, 100cm or 150cm version together with a charger which meets the phone's specific requirements such as the original OnePlus version or an iPad charger. Other 3rd party chargers will be slower.

    Works really well and does speed up time taken to charge.

    Have had this product for 3 weeks now. Impressed with the color, sturdiness of the product, and the fast charging capability of the cable. Definitely would recommend to my friends.

    works as promised, cable good quality, works with a fussy nokia lumia phone 1520, without complaint from the phone that it's charging slowly.

  5. Great charging speed

    My LG G3 is battery hungry and I wanted a decent cable to charge it in the office. I connect it to the powered eSata/USB port on my docking station and get very good charging speeds as confirmed by an app which shows the charge coming in. Recommended

  6. Good charge

    The gauge helps keep current high while increasing distance. The only problem I can see is the strain relief possibly breaking since its a solid piece instead of serated.

    It hasn't happened yet and it might not at all! So I'm happy with the purchase.

  7. super fast charge

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jan 2015

    The 100cm lead charges faster than the original short lead

  8. Fast charging

    Feels very sturdy. Can charge my phone from my pc usb port now in a very short amount of time.

  9. My second order and i love them.

    Posted by roman on 3rd Jan 2015

    I am very demanding customer.I have been using this cable for more than a year now. Current models were modified, previous models did not fit the microUSB slot perfectly. It was very minor problem so me and my friends all decided to order them again. I wasnt able to find any problem in the current models. Ports fit perfectly, charging speed is as good as it gets(A LOT faster than normal cheap cables, trust me). I havent seen faster charging cables on the market, my bundled nexus7 cable broke after 10days of usage. Been using portapow as primary tablet cable since then.

  10. As good as it gets!

    Difficult to buy cables as you don't know what you will get. I continue buying these cables as I have had some for a while and the quality and durability are excellent.
    Non Apple lightning plugs are particularly notorious for falling apart, but not these. Excellent quality. Highly recommended.
