A while back TechMoan (a fellow YouTuber) did a video about magnetic charging cables. I thought it was a great video but he didn’t do any actual measurements, so, I did!
Live Video Review
I did a live video review again but with a little twist. For the people not interested in the whole testing process and the exact numbers, I have a quick section in the beginning where I basically reveal what the results of the tests are. After that, there is a longer part where I take you along while testing all the cables. Check it out!
Shopping links to the cables
If you want to buy one or maybe even a few of these charging cables (it works best if you have a few, one for all the places you charge your phone since the plug stays inside of the phone).
If you watched the video, I will list them in order of being worth buying.
- WSKEN X-Cable Mini 2 magnetic charging cable for Android or iPhone
- New, they now also have black versions of these cables!
- Micro-USB Magnetic Adapter or iPhone Magnetic Adapter
Remember, with the adapter it all depends on what cable you combine it with. Take a look at at this post about charging cables.
A bit worse, but still ok
Moving on we get to the lesser quality cables according to my tests. Still, I wouldn’t call these horrible, especially for the price.
- Magnetic Micro-USB and iPhone charging cable
- Magnetic USB-C charging cable
- Magnetic iPhone charging cable
Other than these I really can’t recommend any other versions. Looking around on Amazon and Aliexpress cheaper cables can definitely be found but as we saw in the video, the quality is related to the price.
If you are looking for a decent magnetic charging cable, they are certainly out there but take care and get a decent one. The cheap one’s will only disappoint and frustrate you in the end.
