Want a USB cable that does it all? Here are the best 2-in-1 cables

    Our devices have become so versatile that they are practically an extension of us. However, the charging cables included don’t really meet all of the needs, especially if you own a myriad of other devices that may not have the same charging ports. If you want a USB cable that does it all, we have found the best 2-in-1 USB cables that money can buy.

    One to rule them all

    Nomad is well-known for its myriad of quality and high-end products, and the same can be said for the Nomad Universal cable. At one end, you can switch between USB-C and USB-A, while at the other end, you have both a USB-C and microUSB attachment. The cable is rated for a 60W max output and is 10K Mil-Spec flex tested, so that it will last for quite awhile.

    Longest warranty

    iXCC 6-feet 2-in-1 Cable


    Many of these 2-in-1 cables are limited in the charging speed, being capped at 2.4A, but the iXCC cable is capable of charging speeds up to 3A. This, combined with the 480Mb/s data syncing and you can charge any device that you own. It’s also a nice addition that iXCC throws in a two-year limited warranty for any cables that you pick up.

    Braided charging

    TROND 2-in-1 USB 2.0 Charger Cable


    A big sticking point with most chargers nowadays is that they are just made from plastic and end up breaking down quicker than normal. TROND solves that with its 2-in-1 cable as it is made with a braided nylon jacket, aiming to become a mainstay in your bag for a long time.

    Magnetic Magic

    JianHan Magnetic 2-in-1 Charger

    What’s our favorite cable?

    When it comes to finding the “best” 2-in-1 cable, the choices can be a built overwhelming. Luckily, Nomad makes this easier with its Universal Cable as it not only sports an end with USB-C and microUSB, but the other end includes an attachment for the standard USB-A port. Plus, this has been 10K Mil-Spec tested for durability, and sports a max output of 60W for quick charging capabilities.

    The most interesting pick of the lot has to be the JianHan Magnetic Charger. In addition to getting a braided cable, you have magnetic tips that can be swapped out based on whichever device you are using. Or, you could leave them in the devices that you need, providing some dust protection and just move the cable between devices.

    One of the most versatile cables is actually a 2-pack from CHOETECH, as the company provides a regular straight cable and a coiled cable. The coiled cable makes it possible for you to keep your device close, without needing to worry about getting tangled up accidentally. Meanwhile, the straight cable does just what you would expect, and versatility is the name of the game so it works perfectly.
