    Prefer the braided style this is good though

    •  

      Same here, but Blitzwolf only braids their AmpCore and AmpCore Turbo Cables (excluding BW-TC8).

      When it comes to short durable cables, the range of options becomes limited.

    • +8 votes

      yeah. I hate when these 30 cm cables get tangled. So annoying.

  •  

    I just bought a bunch of these a few days ago.
    Not “braided” but they are still amp core branded and I assume they’re equally strong. If not stronger. If anyone reminds me, I’ll let them know when they arrive.

    •  

      Have you got them yet? Any feedback?

      •  

        I just got mine from this order. My first thought was 'surely that's not 0.3m'!, but after stretching out, it does seem to be 30cm. Quality feels good.

        Havent tried any data transfer yet - just had it plugged in to charge my phone overnight (and it did that, as it's meant to).

        Has a neat little velcro cable tie on the end of it, which is handy!

        •  

          Interesting. I just measured the default white one that comes with the Xiaomi powerbanks and it came up to 35cm. I thought 30cm would have been too big, clearly not.

          Thanks.

    Go Ampcore Turbo if you want USB3

    •  

      yep have too many usb 2.0 to C cables as i used to assume usb 2.0 would be superceeded and manufacturers had move to 3.0 to complement the new high speed C connectors, not the case and it shows when you move lots of data in transfer speeds,

      ok for charging not not backup or transfers.

    •  

      Definitely agree with you comment.

      In my opinion, the only reason to purchase these cables are to use for Power Banks, and not for transferring files.

  •  

    cannot go wrong with these cables, thanks.

  •  

    Will these charge faster than the cheap eBay versions that say fast charge and cost $1?

    • +1 vote

      From personal experience, $1 cables from eBay are a hit or miss. Most stop working after a while and aren't as durable as the Blitzwolf Ampcore Range.

      According to the description, these cables does fast charging. As for charging faster, you also have to consider the charger being used.

      Standard cheap Micro USB cables can be rated as low as 0.5A-1.0A. 'Fast Charging' cables, or the ones that came with your phone/device are normally 2.1A. These Micro USB cables are rated at 2.4A. If you have a QC2.0/3.0 charger, you want these cables to get max charge for minimal time, roughly 13% performance gain.

    I bought one of these. They don't do dash charging and they don't register with my laptop or PC. I would avoid.

    • +2 votes

      Unfortunately "Dash Charging" is a proprietary charging protocol developed by OnePlus, so your options for cables/chargers are limited.

    Cheers OP, grabbed some USB C ones. Dont forget Cashrewards for 8% back! :)

    Anyone know why they don't make short lightning cables? Surely they'd make a killing. Maybe there's not the demand in China but man apple cables are so darn expensive/so darn brittle - I prefer the blitzwolf ones!

    • +2 votes

      I believe it has to do with MFI certification. Either it won't be certified by Apple or it not feasible to make sort cables due to certification costs.

      •  

        Are there any recommendations? Picking up one of these for my phone but the need some short lightning ones for the others in the house

        • +1 vote

          Short durable cables are difficult to find, especially MFI certified.

          The one I would recommend is the Anker PowerLine 30cm(1ft) Lightning Cable, which isn't readily available to Australia.

    • +1 vote

      Examples of short lightning cable:
      Target Flexible Lightning To USB Cable - 25cm
      25cm lightning to USB cable
      Belkin 6" MIXIT Lightning to USB
      Cygnett Source Lightning to USB-A 10cm

      P.S. I don't recommend any of the above. It's best to stick with originals (because even when they break, you can go to Apple store and get them replaced).

      I recall the Comsol ones were on special at one stage (less than $5). Apple probably want you to move the lightning to USB-C cable for the next iPhone so they can sell you a new spare cables and chargers (pity they did a cost cutting exercise by changing their 1m version of lightning to USB-C cable to USB 2.0 (instead of USB 3.0) in order to sell that cable cheaper).

    • +1 vote

      you can get short lightning cables eg 300mm BUT there are some limits on current for lightning charging …only thing a shorter cable gets you is less clutter compared to 500mm or 1 M,

      often they do 100mm apple cables (4") on ebay as "bait" for cheap listing, usually cost $1 so listing says $1 for 500mm or 1M cable, so you can select the 100mm cable for $1 but the 500mm cable is $5 when you select length ….

      often it will says "last 1" for the 4" cable, so you need to buy as single transactions ….they have lots , it's "bait" , did one seller and grabbed 4, each time said only 1 left, so did as 4 separate transactions.

      •  

        I always filter by price $1.01 as a minimum to get rid of these bait listings.

        Why do they want you to buy as single transactions though? Is it to make you buy it without thinking about it?

    •  

      They used to! Banggood haven’t stocked them in ages though. And they were never fancy amp core or braided or anything. But still worked a charm for a year, mfi and all.

      Also, it’s not about demand in china. I was just there and was expecting to be able to buy heaps of blitzwolf stuff on taobao or Alibaba etc. But they’re really hard to find. Almost like they don’t ship there. Only available on Amazon international store. It’s weird. They’re made in a factory in China but hard to buy there.

    Any deals on USB C- USB C cables?

      As far as I'm aware, Blitzwolf don't make short USB-C to USB-C.

      The only USB-C to USB-C that Blitzwolf make are:

        thank you for this!

        •  

          I found Apple laptops (i.e. Macbook Pro(s) - aka Donglebooks) can be a bit picky on USB-C to USB-C cables. Using zy1276 USB-C tester, I found a cheap USB-IF certified, Benson approved USB-C to USB-C cable failed to initiate fast charge on a small number of occasions (you cannot tell without checking the meter - since the laptop doesn't tell you which mode it is charging). Even when that cable was working in fast charge mode, it consistently provided a bit less voltage and current than Apple original or the one provided by Google - across all USB-C devices I tested.

          That said, I have seen reviews doing testing with Blitzwolf cables (in some tests, we need 2 USB-C to USB-C cables - i.e. charger testing).

          If you are just after a cable for phones and tablets, then it should be fine. For laptops, still prefer the originals (the Apple original USB-C / USB-C cable is rated at 5A / 100W).

        •  

          @netsurfer: yep, apple and Belkin do the high current, and they are about $35 each …the cheapies we see on most sites are low current for phones, not the 60-100W ones for laptops, hope that changes in the future and we see high current cables sub $10.

          USB C market is full of cables designed to charge phones, and not laptops or fast data transfers.

        •  

          @garage sale: Good USB-C to USB-C USB 3.1 with PD cables are hard to find. Problem is due to e-marker chip needs to be coded properly. Even Anker got it wrong on some of their USB-C/USB-C USB 3.1 cables. A lot of okay ones are rated 60W. Apple's high speed Thunderbolt 3 cable is rated only 60W for PD.

          Apple's official USB-C/USB-C PD cable (2m) is $29. For expensive Donglebooks (I mean Macbook Pros), might as well stick to Original cables for power / charging.

  •  

    Got some a few sales ago. They're awesome!

  •  

    is this item shipped in from China? If yes, are we liable to pay 10% GST?

    i can pay the GST, just dont want further delays.

    •  

      I've got stuff and it just gets delivered, ebay charge GST now on overseas sales.

      The volume that these sellers do is small compared to Amazon and Ebay, and they don't know what ATO or GST is or how to collect or pay it.

  •  

    Thanks, I got some more. I had some of the braided cables and they're good as well

  •  

    Thanks, this is great for powerbanks!

  •  

    Any lightning on sale?

    Love that OP makes the assumption that all OzBers have Xiaomi Powerbanks as opposed to any other powerbank.

    Spot on @RichardL! :D

    •  

      True. It's the cheapest and most popular brand around here though.

      I wish I bought the ZMI820 while it was still available. It was down to $50, but I thought if I waited it would eventually be ~$35. I wasn't expecting them to be discontinued, or have difficulty getting to our shores and have sellers refuse to ship them here.

  •  

    Do these do data transfer at all? Thinking of using one of these for Android Auto in my car.

  •  

    Can I use this cable to tow my broken down car?

  •  

    Hopefully as durable as the 1m+ braided one im currently using as a charging cable

  •  

    Expired it seems

  •  

    Micro USB one expired; USB-C still at promo price.

  •  

    does anyone know what the number after BW-MC meant for the micro USB? saw different one with 7 or 11. Sorry complete noob when it come stuff like this.

    FYI been looking for a 1M micro USB. is this one a good deal?

      The BW-MC11 (AmpCore II) and BW-MC7 (AmpCore Turbo) cable are similar. The only difference is that the AmpCore Turbo are braided cables, while the AmpCore II are PVC Jacket cables.

      Personally, I prefer the AmpCore Turbo range, since the cable are braided which makes them more durable. If you're in no rush, the BW-MC7 (AmpCore Turbo Micro-USB) are regularly posted on OzBargain for ~$5-$6 AUD. The one you link, is Banggood regular price for the BW-MC11.

      Also according to the Banggood Rep, there should be a Blitzwolf cable deals posted soon.

  •  

    I ordered two and received them today. They are too short to be of use for anything other than data transfer. At least they were cheap.
