What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB connections are among the most versatile type of connections. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices. Currently four versions of USB exist – USB 3.1 (10Gbps), USB 3.0 (5Gbps), USB 2.0 (480Mbps) and USB 1.1 (12Mbps). In most cases cables are compatible across all versions but maximum transfer speed may be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 480Mbps, not 5Gbps. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

Why use this Samsung Powershare cable?
This cable is ideal if you’ve got a flat battery on a micro-USB device and a Samsung phone compatible with power sharing. This nifty cable will allow you to charge almost any device that uses 5v 500mA – which is the majority of phones, and many tablets. Currently Samsung support this feature on the following phones: Galaxy S 5, Galaxy Note 3 & 4, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy Tab S, and Galaxy Avant. Please check with Samsung for the current list of supported devices, as they are adding support to other models.

This cable also features illuminated connectors - which instantly show if the cable is ready for charging or not. Additionally, via the use of the Power Share app (available on the Google Play Store) you can pre-set the amount of charge you want to give. Once your battery level reaches the set amount, it will stop charging without any hassle.

Does this work to transfer data as well, or is it just for charging?

Asked by: Nick
This is essentially a charging cable.
