Need to charge both Android and Apple devices? It’s time to get a reliable cable that charges.
In this article, we will unbox the Anker Powerline II 3-in-1 cable and give it a charging speed test on a mobile phone to see if it works well.
You can watch the unboxing and charging test here as well.
When facing a mixture of Android and Apple devices, there is a real need to get a reliable and trustworthy 3-in-1 cable that charges them without giving any problems.
Do you really need a 3-in-1 cable?
Nowadays, iPhones and iPads all require their lightning cables to be MFi-certified to charge correctly. This is especially so for the latest models, such as iPhone 12 and 13.
Android devices mainly come in USB-C connectors; some even come with a faster-charging specification called the Power Delivery (PD) that only selected cables support.
Other digital devices like speakers, microphones and portable fans still rely primarily on MicroUSB connectors.
Why is having a trusted & reliable 3-in-1 cable necessary?
On the physical aspect, your cable should be sturdy in durability to prevent degradation. Furthermore, it should carry a warranty for your purchase. Lastly, the different connectors must be charged, even as with the latest iPhone devices, which require cables to be MFi-certified.
