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. It works with all devices which charge from a micro USB socket including smartphones and satnavs from Samsung, HTC, Google, Sony, TomTom, etc.
  • 20 AWG thick low resistance copper cable for high speed 2A charging with lower power loss than standard cables. The 30cm and 100cm cables provide the fastest charging since shorter cables have lower resistance.
  • Thicker plastic housing with extra reinforcement at both connector ends where cables commonly become worn.

Updated January 2015 - all versions are all 20AWG, which is significantly lower resistance than typical 26 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. 

 

OnePlus One Smartphones

These phones have very specific requirements for charging. Our cables are compatible but for the very fastest charging speeds a very low resistance cable such as our 30cm or 100cm version together with a charger which meets the phone's specific requirements such as the original OnePlus version or an iPad charger. Our longer cables and other 3rd party chargers will be noticably slower.

  1. super fast charge

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jan 2015

    The 100cm lead charges faster than the original short lead

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


  3. 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.


  4. As good as it gets!

    Posted by Chris Clarkson on 1st Jan 2015

    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.


  5. fast charging but cheap and very poor quality

    Posted by BA on 31st Dec 2014

    It works for a month or two and then the the connector becomes loose and difficult to use. I've bought two cables and both become unusable in two months. In fact, these are random cheap Chinese made cables with a PortaPow sticker. This cable should cost no more than £1 or £2 but definitely not £5.

  6. excellent quality and great charging power

    headline says it all.
    very reccomanded, would buy it again if needed.


  7. High quality cable, fast charge, just how it should be!

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Dec 2014

    There are a lot of cheap cables out there and of the five or so that I've tried none of them charge my phone very well if at all! This one might be a little more expensive but it does the job and does it very well Even if you have the screen on and are using the internet and GPS it still charges quickly.


  8. very good product!

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Dec 2014

    Goog quality and fast chargincable. Lenght is allso good.


  9. good quality and charges fast

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Nov 2014

    After losing the original USB cable for my Nexus 5, I wasted my time on unofficial ones for a while. However I did notice their charge times were slow and over time, the charge times actually deteriorated. Deciding it was time to take the plunge and splash out on something of higher quality, I bought this and have not been disappointed. Left on standby, my phone now charges from 0-100 in an hour. The quality shows!


  10. Feeding the power hungry

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Nov 2014

    With a multi -USB outlet adapter these cords now easily feed all devices. Five BlackBerry devices along with Kindle and more co-exist happily with no worries or messing with specific device chargers. Worth it to get rid of the clutter.
