Mobile phone cables
Whether you need it for charging, connecting to headphones, or synching with your other devices, a mobile phone cable is an essential piece of kit to add to your tech collection.
We all dread that moment when our handset loses its juice when we’re out and about — especially when it’s in the middle of a messaging marathon, crucial call or gaming session. But that’ll be a problem of the past when you’ve invested in a mobile phone charging cable to use on the go. Proud owner of Apple gadgets? Choose a number that’s compatible with Lightning devices, iPhones, iPads and iPods.
And now for what’s probably the most universally useful accessory — the USB cable to mobile phone connector. Double check your handset and other tech to make sure you’re getting the right combination of ports. A 2.0 to micro is a popular option, as it lets you charge, synch and back up your data on your computer. There’s also the Type-C connection, so pick the combo that works best for you. For the ultimate in charging power, go for a three-in-one option that lets you power up multiple devices with all three different ports covered (Lightning, micro and Type-C). You could even share the love by letting a pal connect theirs too.
No Bluetooth connection on your speakers or headphones? No problem. Get a standard 3.5 mm jack adapter and link up your wired headphones or speakers to your device via a Type-C port. Then your music will be free to play to the whole room or just to you — because not everyone on the train wants to listen to your favourite tunes. Or do you need to get online the old school way, via an Ethernet cable to mobile phone? Whatever your requirements, you’ll find the solution.
