USB-C cables can be hard to find. Sure, they’re aplenty on Amazon, in-store, and plenty of other places; however, finding the right one can be a difficult battle. You want a fast charging cable, not one that’s going to charge your device up at a crawl. You need cables that are actually following standard USB-C procedures.
That said, some manufacturers just don’t follow those standards, and unfortunately the consumer gets a bad cable that doesn’t work for them. It usually breaks, or slowly just stops working. That’s why we put together this list — to show you the best fast charging cables that are reliable, and will last you a long time. So without further ado, here are our favorite choices:
First up on our countdown, we’re looking at the Belkin USB-C cable. This one might sit on the more expensive side of cables, costing you around $25; however, this is one of those cables that’s going to last your a lifetime. Following current USB-C standards, the Belkin will charge up your phone quickly, and even transfer data pretty quick.
This one is a versatile cable, and because it’s USB-C, it will work with all USB Type C devices on the market, even the new Macbooks or the Google PixelBook! On top of that, it’s got a quick 10Gbps data transfer rate, allowing you to move files, photos, and videos around extremely quickly.
Naturally, there are safeguards built into the cable to keep your device well protected.
Aukey 3 Pack
AUKEY is up next, and is one of our favorites as far as value for money go. For just a few dollars, AUKEY actually gives you three cables that you can use, instead of just one. That said, these are still well-built cables as well, following current USB-C guidelines for fast charging and quick data transfer rates. Unfortunately, these all come in at only a meager 3 ft. in length, which doesn’t provide much of a reach.
Data transfer rates are really good inside this cable, giving you about 5Gbps. That’s around half of the speed of what Belkin offers, but still a substantially quick rate.
A fairly unique pair of USB-C cables, we have the option from Volutz. They have some great cables for your Huawei P30, probably taking the cake in terms of value for money. You actually get five cables in the package, and at all different lengths inside the Volutz. There’s a 10 foot cord, a 6.5 foot cord, two 3.3 foot cords, and then a single one foot cord. This gives you plenty of cables for keeping around the house, as well as varying lengths for different needs.
The downside is that the data transfer speeds are substantially less at 480mbps, but will still charge up your phone quickly.
Next up, we’re looking at Anker’s own USB-C cable. Anker is an excellent choice for those looking for a new cable. The company makes all sorts of phone accessories, but we think they do especially well in the charging department. Unfortunately, it’s just a single cord, but comes in multiple colors, and you can choose the lengths that you want to buy.
This one will be right up your alley if you’re looking for one with a good cross between charging speeds and data transfer rates — Anker actually offers this one at a whole 5Gbps.
Finally, but certainly not least n our countdown, we’re loving the work that Mophie is doing with its charging products, including its USB-C cables. Mophie has been around for a long time and is well known for power products, from wall chargers, to wireless chargers to cables, you can’t go wrong with this brand.
If you want something reliable for the Huawei P30, this is the cable for you. This cable will essentially last you a lifetime. And with a lifetime warranty, Mophie nearly guarantees that, keeping you stay safe against defects. It is a little more pricey than most.
Here you can see the best USB-C cables available for the Huawei P30. However, we think the best of the best comes in the form of Mophie’s option, though if you don’t want to spend the cash on just one, the Volutz is an excellent choice, too.
What’s your favorite fast charging cable?
