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 dual mobile-data and charge cable?
This versatile cable can be used as a charge and data cable for devices that use the Apple Lightning or micro-USB connections. These would typically be portable devices like smartphones or tablets. The cable has a Lightning connector, which detaches to expose a micro-USB connection underneath. This means that the cable can only be connected to one device as a time. When used with a USB 2.0 port, the maximum data transfer rate of this cable is 480Mbps. The cable can be used with a USB power adapter for charging only.
