Are they the fast charger ones?
Hot, good brand and safety resistor in them, so no risk of fire.

Didn't fast charge on any of my devices or chargers, I sent them back. The description says they are, but other reviews suggest not.

Pack of 3 I bought this week is fast charging.
Good strong solid cables these, i always buy this brand and have never failed. Its only a cable but sometimes you have to appreciate the little things
Amazon description says up to 2.4a.
More expensive on Prime than not? That's too many white Russians I fear
These don't work with usb c power delivery. I would have bought if usb c power delivery cables .

Amazon description says up to 2.4a.


The highest charge you can get from a STANDARD charger is 2.4A. These support up to 2.4 which is in theory fast charge. My Samsung A5 is fast charge and is 2.4. It's true, the proper fast charge is 3A and up. To differentiate, it seems they change the language, often for the proper fast charge, they call it quick charge

These will work with Quick Charge 3.0 chargers but not Power Delivery which needs usb c connection at both ends and e marker chip inside .

Yes, will work with QC 3.0 chargers, but will they charge at that speed? Info in description shows they go up to 2.4A only, so because of the resistor will be fine to use, but don't think you get the QC 3.0 speed.

Yes , wire is a passive element. Depends on charger . Even though not rated for QC 3.0
Will these charge a Nintendo Switch?

On the listing it says they will, at this rating it should do just won't work TV mode. However, the only way to be sure is to buy them and try, luckily you can return to Amazon if they don't.

I have tried a few cheap unbranded cables that were sold as up to 3A that have not worked, only the one that came with my mobile phone was good enough, so I would definitely avoid any eBay ones and go only for them from a site such as Amazon where returns are so easy.

Again with the dis-information...
Sadly there is no such thing as a "standard" when it comes to fast charging, most manufacturers went off spec and created their own method of fast charging - the one thing they have in common is they should all be able to charge from a USB port.
Unfortunately the original agreed standard for USB power output was 5v @ 0.5Amps (USB 3 spec saw this increase to 0.9Amps and USB 3.1 increased it to 3Amps), modern phones have been configured to accept higher amperages & voltages to speed up the charging process.
Fast charge refers to a 5v 2.4Amp delivery and some USB ports have been configured off spec to provide this power.
Manufacturers soon realised the costs & hazards of simply increasing the amperage. Qualcomm introduced it's Quick Charge idea and several manufacturers adopted it, others adapted it (and then it got reverse engineered). Therefore there is no agreed practice to faster charging methods between manufacturers.
The QC technology can provide a maximum of 36Watts (12v @ 3Amps), but it can also provide different voltages (upto 22V with lower Amps).
There are several other "Quick charge" delivery options available, however they are mainly proprietary.
Things to check are the awg rating of the cable. If it doesn't state it then it's probably a cheap cable (28awg for the signal pair and between 20 & 26awg for the power, usually printed as 26AWG/1P 20AWG/2C, though more common examples would be 28AWG/1P 22AWG/2C, 28AWG/1P+24AWG/2C). Shorter cables are usually better as they will have less resistance.

Personally I wouldn't risk a non-QC 3.0 rated cable on a QC 3.0 charger...
There is a reason QC 3.0 cables cost more...

Again with the dis-infomation - that is NOT how PD works, there is NO chip in the cable and a regular USB A to B cable will work (go read the spec).

So, the question is this a QC 3.0 rated cable? I think is not. Will this provide fast charge? Yes, depending what you call fast charge. It charges my phone at exactly the same speed as the original cable. My phone is listed as fast charge, so to me this is fast charge. Checked with AccuBattery. I have other cables, they charge 3-4 slower. And yes, manufacturers created their own method of fast charging, the fast Adaptive Charger by Samsung is able to push up to 15-watts to the phone. But I agree, there is no such thing as 'standard' when it comes to fast charging.

Yes - it's quite frustrating. I guess it's difficult to future proof a design, however manufacturers really went way off spec as to what USB was initially designed for and we the consumers loose out.
Thanks OP, ordered as a spare for in car charging when needed. Voted hot
I think the fast charging depends on the type of adapter you use to plug this in

Will these charge a Nintendo Switch?



So to revisit my earlier response to this question, I bought a pair of these and here are my results. In my pack the 2m one doesn't work at all, none of my devices, phone or Switch will recognise it is even connected. As for the 1m one, it is better than a cheap eBay jobby that was 2 for £1, but not good enough to one of my Switches for some reason. I have two Switches, both v1, while it will charge one Switch fine, and my phone (which according to Ampere is fairly stable as well, see below), it won't charge the second Switch (also v1) which doesn't even register one is connected.

For comparison, my Lenovo ZUK Z2 lead (also from China) will charge all devices perfectly fine, and one I got free with a controller (also from China) will charge the first Switch and phone fine and the second Switch it will start to charge and then after a little bit will say unable to charge as if the lead isn't quite providing enough power.

Based on Ampere, when plugged into a Samsung 5v 2A wall charger I get the following results:
El cheapo nasty eBay lead = 300mA
Came with Chinese controller = 1320mA - 1440mA
Tecknet 1m cable = 1410mA - 1560mA (which makes it strange that this one seems to provide less power to the second Switch than the lead above)
Lenovo ZUK Z2 original cable = 1480mA - 1560mA (only marginally better than the Tecknet but this seems enough to charge all devices happily)

So basically, as far as the working cable goes, it is reasonably good, but it seems that depending on your Switch, this may not be good enough.
