Charge and Sync Cables

What's the Difference between Charge, Data Transfer, and Sync Cables?

Today we use USB cables for everything from charging our phones to attaching a device, so we can listen to music and even for transferring files onto an external hard drive. But do you know the difference between charge, data transfer, and sync cables?

Of course, a charge cable comes with your phone. Not only that, but you can also use it to transfer data from your phone onto another device. However, that charge cable isn't going to be powerful enough for some of your other data transfer needs. Why? Because charge and data transfer cables do the opposite thing. While a charge cable pulls in power, a data transfer cable is pushing information to its destination.

Another difference between charge and data transfer cables is that a data transfer cable eliminates noise that you might pick up when listening to music or recording sound. Smartphone cables are a combination charge and sync cable that can charge the phone as well as transfer data to your pad, laptop, or computer simultaneously.

For example, you might need a magnetic micro USB charge and data transfer cable for your Samsung. On the other hand, you could be looking for a micro USB flat spring charge and sync Cable, or even a micro USB flat spring charge and sync cable with a round spring connector support.

Ultimately, you'll pick the best cable for your data transfer needs based on experience.
