What you need to know before purchasing a USB charger

Posted March 3, 2016 at 05:50 PM

USB-powered devices go with us everywhere and it's important to stay connected. However, not all chargers or cables are created equal. What should you consider when choosing the best USB charging solutions? What's all this talk about amps, volts and rapid charging? Keep reading, and let us help you make sense of it all. 

Charging rate

For starters, not all electronic devices can be charged at the same rate. Different wall chargers have different output rates, measured in amps. Chargers with higher charging rates will power your device up quicker. For example, we recommend at least a 1 amp charger for an iPhone, 1.6 amps for Android and 2.4 amps for an iPad. When choosing a mutli-port charger for multiple devices, the total output must match or be higher than what each device requires to charge at the fullest rate. To find this out, add up the required amps for all the devices you'll be charging. 

For example: Android + iPad = 3+ amp charger.
