5 Best Fast Charging Type C Cables For Pixel 3

There are a lot of different fast charging Type C (USB-C) cables on the market, but not all of them are great options for charging your Google Pixel 3. Some cables are made with such poor quality that they may only last a couple of days. Others might not do any charging at all and fail immediately.

That’s why the cable you pickup needs to be USB-C certified, or at least have some really good reviews. Not sure what cable to pickup for your Google Pixel 3? Follow along and we’ll show you the best options on the market for the phone. Here are our top picks.

 

Belkin

Belkin seems like they have their hands in a ton of different phone accessory industries, and they do; however, the quality of their accessories are actually really good. Their USB-C cables are some of the best in quality that you can pick up. You only get a single cord here, but it won’t cost you anymore than $13.

The downside to this Belkin cable is that it only comes in at 3 ft. in length, but it’s one of the better quality options out there. You can use it thousands of times without it breaking. It also has a data transfer rate of 10Gbps, which makes it one of the fastest cables on our list. Naturally, you’ll get really fast charging speeds, too.

Aukey 3 Pack

If you’ve never heard of Aukey before, you’ve likely been living under a rock. This company makes all sorts of phone accessories, including USB-C cables. The value for money is actually really good in this set, giving you three cords for just $12. That’s cheap! However, the length of the cords are only around 3.3ft each. It’s just enough to reach from the wall outlet to the phone on the nightstand!

Despite the shortness of the cords, the data transfer rates are actually really good. You get a whole 5Gbps, though some of that does depend on the host phone as well as how large the files are that you’re trying to transfer.

Volutz

The Volutz USB-C cables are next up on our list. They offer some pretty great value for money, but also have a unique design that makes them appear as if they came out of a Sci-Fi movie. They take on a two-tone color, with the primary color being black. Then, each cable has different colored accents placed throughout (one could be yellow, another red, etc). For $20, you actually get five different USB-C cables — one in 10, ft, another in 6.5 ft., 2 3.3 ft. cables, and then a single 1 ft. cable.

Volutz’s data transfer rates in these cables are a little slower at 480Mbps, but that’s still a decent amount of speed for moving around photo libraries and larger documents.

Anker

We’ve shown you some pretty neat package deals so far, but this one by Anker is just a single USB-C cable, but built with some really great quality. You can choose to get the cord in White or Black, and you can choose lengths between 3, 6, and 10 ft. Anker does sweeten the deal with a lifetime warranty, allowing you to easily replace the cord if something were to ever happen with it.

Anker has actually been able to pack some really good data transfer rates inside of the Anker USB-C cable. With larger file transfers, you should be able to easily get around 5Gbps. That makes it fairly ideal for moving over large photo libraries and videos. The Anker USB-C cable is actually quite cheap, coming in at just $7.

Mophie

The Mophie fast charging type c cable might be last up on our list, but it’s one of the best you can pick up for the Google Pixel 3. This is a high quality cable, so naturally, it’s a little more on the expensive side of things for around $25. If you use your cables a lot, and bend them in more extreme ways, the Mophie will be one of the few that will last you a couple of years.

While this is a single USB-C cable that you’re getting, Mophie does try to sweeten the deal by providing you with a lifetime replacement warranty in the event that there’s a problem with the cord — suffice to say, a replacement can be sent out right after getting in contact with the company.

Verdict

There are a lot of great fast charging type c cables on this list for the new Google Pixel 3. Any one of these will work great with the smartphone, not only providing you with fast charging speeds, but giving you quick data transfer rates to move around large files and massive photo libraries with speed. If you’re looking for the creme of the crop in fast charging cables, the one by Mophie or Belkin is easily the way to go.
