Whether you purchase bulk USB cables, or buy them one at a time, you know how important it is to have cables that perform optimally. When you have a home theater, a bank of office computers or several mobile devices, you don’t want any interruptions with connectivity.
Depending on what devices you’re using and/or connecting to, there are three HDMI Standard cables:
- HDMI Standard
- HDMI Standard with Ethernet
- HDMI Standard Automative
In addition, there are two high-speed types of cables:
- HDMI High Speed
- HDMI High Speed with Ethernet
When considering the types of cables you may need for your personal and/or business use, it’s important to have extras available. Here are a just a few different types of cables that you may want to include on your new shopping list:
- Cat6 ethernet cables
- Cell phone cables
- Fiber optic cables
- Lightning cables
- Siamese video cables
- USB 2.0 Device cables
- USB 2.0 extension cables
- USB 3.0 data cables
- USB 3.0 extension cables
- Zipcord fiber optic cables
In addition to purchasing bulk USB cables, you may also want to have extra surge protectors and cell phone accessories.
A cable’s length doesn’t make a difference with audio and video quality. However, if you do need a long cable, particularly one that is 100 feet or longer, then it’s a good idea to purchase one intended for that purpose.
When you’re considering the longevity of your cables, a quality CAT5 cable, for example, should last from five-to-ten years. It should go without saying that a damaged cord should not be used, which is another reason why it makes sense to purchase these in bulk.
If a phone charger cable is damaged or frayed, it can be a potential fire hazard. In 2008 alone, there were 53,600 home fires as a result of electrical fires, failures, and/or malfunctions. These types of fires can obviously claim lives, cause injuries, and damage property.
If you have one or more smartphones, they usually last for approximately two years. When you use a 12 watt USB power adapter, the iPhone 6’s charging time is approximately one hour and 50 minutes. An iPhone 6 Plus, however, takes approximately two hours and 30 minutes to completely charge.
To reduce charging time, you may want to consider a 12-watt iPad charger. This device can charge either phone in half the amount of time.
Using the right cable for each device not only makes a difference in your connectivity, it can also make a difference in how well these devices operate. It’s both practical and convenient to have bulk USB cables on hand so you don’t experience any workflow or entertainment interruptions. Read more.
