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.

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. The Samsung Galaxy S6 / Edge also requires a sync cable and special charger for the very fastest charging speeds.


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.

  1. Micro USB no good

    Posted by John hewit on 21st Jul 2015

    I have had several of these cables of various lengths. They all end up with duff micro USB connectors. None of them make good contact after a short period of use. I had my Nexus on charge all of last night and woke to 5%. These cable need a more robust connector on them.

  2. Super cable

    Posted by N.G. Bos on 10th Jul 2015

    Before I had this cable, charging my cellphone took about 8 hours. I have a 2.1amp charger but the power cord I used was very thin. Now I have a Portapow fast charge cable it goes from complete empty to totally full in less than 4 hours!

  3. This product

    Posted by Simon on 9th Jul 2015

    Omg this product does exactly what it's says, my fat 3100mah oneplus one charges from red 7% in 1h26min it is phenomenal. This product works and I highly recommend it. I'll be ordering a few more for gadget minded in the know family and friends.

  4. All good.

    Good product, good price, good service. Would buy again. Would ideally like to see the plug-ends embedded deeper in a more solid chunk of plastic for strength, stability, and longevity -- but don't let that put you off, this is better than most anyway.

  5. Awesome Products

    Great charge time, connectors that don't break, and chargers that work just as well at 10' cable lengths as 3' cable lengths.

    I buy all my chargers and charging accessories from here. The first I got was almost two years ago and they still work like new, I bought more this year not because anything stopped working, but because I wanted more for all the different places I charge my devices.

  6. It does work
