Which charger is right for my tablet?
If you are looking for a new tablet charger or data cable, the first thing to do is to identify which type of charging cable your phone requires. You can do this by looking at the shape of your old charger’s input connector or check the user manual which came with your phone.
Here is a list of the most common types of USB connectors:
Micro USB - the standard small, thin USB connector that acts as a charger cable for most on-the-go electronic devices. This connector is still used by some types of tablets and eReaders.
Lightning - a connector designed by Apple in 2012, and one which works exclusively with Apple products such as iPad, iPad Mini and iPad Airs. Lightning cables function as both charging and data cables, although their use is being phased out in response to the introduction of the USB-C.
USB Type-C - slim with rounded corners, this is the most current USB phone charger type and offers Fast Charging and higher data transfer speeds.
When shopping for a replacement tablet cable on subtel.co.uk, you can find out if it’s 100% compatible with your device by checking the compatibilities list found on the individual product pages on our webshop. There, you’ll find detailed information on the brand and model types our replacement tablet chargers, data cables and OTG adapters were designed to pair with.
The second point is a question of quality. Cheaper replacement cables are prone to breaking - whether that’s through low-quality materials and poor workmanship.
We’ve all had cheaper cables that damage easily through over-bending or insufficient support and protection between where the cable meets the power connector which causes the two to separate.
Cheaper cables may also simply charge your device or transfer files and data at a slower rate as higher-quality ones.
subtel® sells a wide variety of high-quality Fast Charger cables and high speed data cables for many brands and models of tablets and e-Readers - with flexible break- and kink-proof power cords for reliable, long-term performance.
What is a tablet data cable?
A data cable is any type of cable, lead or wire that allows you to transfer data from one device to another. This data often comes in the form of file transfer such as documents, videos, photos, programs and music between devices.
A data cable would be used, for example, for syncing / syncronising between your computer and tablet for transferring photos, videos and other media, updating software, syncing accounts, creating backups, file sharing or retrieving information from a hard drive.
The speed at which a data cable can transfer data is called its data transfer rate (DTR). This is measured in Bits Per Second (bps) - a bit being a unit of digital information. This data transfer rate is also often referred to as its bandwidth.
The higher the data transfer rate between two devices, the quicker a transfer will be completed. For example, transferring an album from a PC to an MP3 player using a data cable with a transfer speed in the kbps will take a lot longer than one capable of gbps transfer speeds.
What is a tablet Fast Charger?
You might have heard about Fast Charging technology that rapidly shortens the time it takes to charge your tablet - ones that can bring you back up to full charge in just over 20 minutes, compared to almost two hours for a normal charger.
Cables for Fast Charging work because the wires inside them are larger, thus can carry larger currents. Standard cables are 28 gauge and are capable of a charge rate of around 0.5A, whereas cables with a larger gauge (thicker wires inside) can carry larger currents of 2A+. Thus, your device is charged quicker.
Because of the extra materials needed to make Fast Charge cables, they’re also often more expensive than their slower counterparts - but the increased performance negates the extra cost.
If you’re interested in purchasing a fast charger for your tablet or e-Reader, it’s best to first check that your device is Fast Charger capable. Most modern devices are, and if your device charges with a USB-C cable or Apple Lightning cable, yours probably is.
Charging a device that is not capable of Fast Charging with a Fast Charging cable could, in certain circumstances, damage your device - so it’s best to make sure before purchasing one.
subtel® sells a wide variety of Fast Charger cables for tablets and a wide variety of other devices - made using high quality materials for super quick charging and reliable, long-term performance.
