While USB-C became the standard for transferring data these days, USB-C cables step in for faster charging and increased data transfer speeds.
That’s precisely the reason why so many Android/iOS phones made the switch to USB-C – it easily delivers power at up to 100 watts at 20 volts and you can insert the cable either way up.
Even larger devices can be charged from USB-C, including tablets and touchscreen laptops.
You just need to choose a durable cable for the task, with a nylon-coated exterior or protected by an aluminum sleeve. Sturdy rubberized materials are also an option, in order to minimize internal damage.
