What charger do I need?

In todays world, everyone has to be connected all the time. Our mobile devices are no longer just a phone. They are our camera, our computer, our main source of communication, our calculator, our diary - our whole life is stored on these tiny devices. So how do we know what charge cable we need? What is fast charge and do we need it?


On the market we have 3 main types of charge cable: USB Micro, USBC and Apple Lightning. Let's take a look at each of them and how you can identify which one you need.

Micro charger

The USB Micro charger is the most common connector for a wide range of devices including: Mobile phones, Tablets, Speakers, Headphones, Sat Nav, Power banks and many more.

USBC Charger

USBC is a relatively new connector but is considered the superior connection type. Due to its construction, it can move power and data much quicker than a Micro or Lightning charge cable. Most new devices have already embraced this connector including Apple with the MacBook line, Google with its Chromebooks, Lenovo with ThinkPads and most new Android phones.


It is also possible to have a USBC connector on both ends - a USBC-USBC cable.
