    This fits your .
  • Enter your model number above to make sure this fits.
  • If you have purchased a powerful mains or car USB charger but find that it charges your device slowly or not at all when using a normal micro USB cable, this cable will most likely solve the problem.
  • PC USB sockets and many other chargers will only charge micro USB device at 0.5A with a normal data cable, this allows charging at 1A or more - twice as fast.
  • Follows the 'Dumb USB' specification' - get the full power from a computer USB socket, mains or car USB charger.
  • Will not put your device into 'data transfer' mode when connected to a computer, acting as a 'USB Condom' to prevent data theft / viruses when charging from an unknown USB socket.
  • Improved design with more robust connectors available from 18th May 2014

Product Description

Product Description

Now with more robust connectors for improved durability

This will allow you to charge power hungry micro USB devices such as the Raspberry Pi, Google Nexus, Asus Transformer, Blackberry Playbook or other micro USB device at high speed from a powerful charger, such as one rated at 2A / 10W.

Uses even thicker 22AWG copper cable to allow the same speed charging as our 150cm cable - has lower resistance so more power goes to your device and less is lost in the cable as heat. It follows the 'Dumb USB' specification, ie with the D+ and D- lines shorted. If you're already getting a fast charging speed then your charger follows the correct spec, and this will simply be a safe, high quality 250cm replacement charging cable.

Prevents your device going into 'data transfer' mode when connected to a computer, acting as a 'USB Condom' to prevent data theft / viruses when charging from an unknown USB socket. It works with all devices which charge from a micro USB socket including smartphones and satnavs from Samsung, HTC, Google, Sony, TomTom, etc.

Note your device will not charge faster than it was designed for - usually this is the same speed as charging from the original mains charger.

The technology in this cable is already built into our car charger (B00E72WG18) and mains charger (B0073JB4QU)

Good and handy little cable. It's plugged into the USB port in my car dashboard and I use it to charge my Android phone without the inconvenience of my car stereo trying to connect my phone as an external media device.

Because of it's short length, I don't have miles of cable cluttering up my car dashboard. Because it's short, you won't be able to pick up the phone in your car when you're driving,. But hey, that's a good thing, right?

It just charges, nothing else and if your phone supports rapid charging then this is the cable for you.

What can I say - it is a good quality cable at a reasonable price, and it works as expected. I have not noticed any problems with it. It works just as good as one of those needlessly expensive cables costing several times the price of this.

I bought this item a year ago, along with some other Anker cables and chargers. Initially this PortaPow cable worked fine, nice and quick for charging, but recently I've noticed that more often than not the cable does not seem to sit snugly in the charging port in the phones and on at least one occasion it has failed to charge the phone without me realising it until I ran out of charge. Anker ones are still going strong (in fact ordered a couple more to replace these cables).

Good quality and can charge high draw devices with fast chargers. The price probably reflects the quality but I have taken off one star to reflect the price.

The only difficulty I had was with Amazon Prime which promised next day delivery but took about 5 days to deliver as the package went to the wrong depot.

These cables charge devices so fast. As they are also short they are excellent for ticking away in a pocket with a foldable plug ready for opportunist top-ups. When you are out, the most important thing about charging is speed.

Works. But I did not see any charging time improvement compared to a simple other microUSB <> USB cable on several devices (smartphone, tablet, radio, mobile router, or a powerbank). Solidly built but overhyped I think.

does the job, but very expensive for 30cm of cable - having bought this explicitly for charging only, I think I should probably have gone for data+charging since now I have to keep the tag on the cable all the time so that it doesn't get mixed up.

Couldn't understand why my Nexus 5 charged so slowly from external battery packs even when i was using the USB cable provided with the Nexus but this fixed it, charges just as fast as from mains now. So pleased to have found this.
