Updated 20th September 2013 – Now labelled as a PortaPow Fast Charger cable so you won’t get it mixed up with standard data cables.


This will allow you to charge power hungry micro USB devices such as the Raspberry Pi, Google Nexus, Blackberry Playbook or other micro USB device at full speed from a powerful charger, such as one rated at 2A / 10W.



Uses 24AWG copper cable to allow faster charging than a normal micro USB cable – has lower resistance so more power goes to your device and less is lost in the cable as heat. It follows the ‘Dumb USB’ specification, ie with the D+ and D- lines shorted. If you’re already getting a fast charging speed then your charger follows the correct spec, and this will simply be a safe, high quality 150cm replacement charging cable.



Prevents your device going into ‘data transfer’ mode when connected to a computer, acting as a ‘USB Condom’ to prevent data theft / viruses when charging from an unknown USB socket. It works with all devices which charge from a micro USB socket including smartphones and satnavs from Samsung, HTC, Google, Sony, TomTom, etc. The Galaxy Note 2 uses a different spec so is not compatible.


Note your device will not charge faster than it was designed for – usually this is the same speed as charging from the original mains charger.


The technology in this cable is already built into our car charger (B00E72WG18) and mains charger (B0073JB4QU)If you have purchased a powerful mains or car USB charger but find that it charges your device slowly or not at all when using a normal micro USB cable, this cable will most likely solve the problem.
