Thanks to O-O for the deal idea. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/374458#comment-5881634
Will post my run down of the cable types for Blitzwolf in this deal as well.
These are best if you want fast data speeds as well as they are USB 3.1 on the USB-A end.
If you are looking for something just for power, consider the
BlitzWolf® AmpCore Ⅱ BW-TC12 3A USB Type-C Charging Data Cable 3.33ft/1m With Magic Tape Strap - Black
Available in all 4 colours for $2.99US ($3.94AU)
These are USB-A 2.0 so won't be as fast for data, but should be the same for power. Also not braided and not around as long so not sure on durability.
Don't forget your cash rewards as well.
OK here we go, model numbers and what I can work out they mean.
M (ie MC1) means USB-A to micro USB
T (ie TC1) means USB-C (either on one or both ends)
F (ie MF1) means lightning connection
CB - I can't really tell where these models fit in.
Colour of either black or red doesn't change the product code.
Base - seems to still be a braided cable, but otherwise standard connection between cable and plug. 30AWG for data and 21AWG for power
Ampcore - looks to give a better cable/plug connection. Starts to advertise data sync speeds @ 480MBs (standard USB 2.0 speed)
Ampcore II - back to plastic rather than braided cable, otherwise same as Ampcore
Ampcore Turbo - similar to Ampcore, now gold plated connector heads. Also looks like a 1 piece cable/plug connection rather than 1 piece.
- in the T series (USB C) these are the only ones that use USB A 3.1 for higher data transfer speeds.
MC1/2/3 - the base level micro usb cables. 1 is 1 metre long, 2 is 1.8m and 3 is 2.5m
MC4/5/6 - same lengths as above for Ampcore cables
MC7/8/9 - Ampcore Turbo in same lengths
MC10/11 - Ampcore 2 models in 30cm and 1m models
TC1/2/3 - base level USB-A 2.0 to USB-c in lengths as above.
TC4 - ??
TC5/6/7 - Ampcore models for USB-A to USB-C
TC8 - Ampcore Turbo USB-C to USB-C 1m
TC9/10 - Ampcore Turbo USB-A 3.1 to USB-C 1m/1.8m
TC11 - Ampcore II USB-A 2.0 to USB-C 1m
TC12 - Exactly the same as TC11?
OK so in summary from my understanding.
Want to charge a Micro USB device but not transfer data - MC1 through to MC6 depending on length and cable quality.
Want to transfer data over Micro-usb - probably still MC1 through to MC6, no speed increase with Ampcore Turbo.
Want to charge a USB-C device - TC1-3 and TC5-7 with choice for length or quality
- or TC8 if you have a USB-C port on the charger
Want to transfer data over USB-C - TC9/10 with length choice, or TC8 if a USB-C port on the PC.
