Charging your cell phone is quick and easy if you have the right cell phone USB cable to use. If the cord that came with your phone has been destroyed or is no longer working, it is important to take a few things into consideration before buying a replacement cord. The guide below walks you through a few things to consider before buying a replacement cord for your phone.
Check the End of the Cord
The first thing you need to do is to look closely at the end of the USB cord to be sure that it is the right fit for your phone. Each phone has a specific adapter that fits into the end of the phone to allow it to be charged quickly and easily. Some manufacturers make adapter ends that can be used in a few different models of their phones and some have a different adapter for every model they make.
Consider the Length of the Cord
Next, you need to consider how long you want the cord to be. There are some people who are on their phone constantly and being able to charge their phone and use it at the same time is important to them. If you need to be able to use your phone at all times, consider purchasing a cord that is three feet long or longer. The longer USB cords will still work the same way as the shorter cords work, but will give you extra length so you do not have to worry about pulling the plug from the wall when you try to use it while it is charging.
Consider Purchasing a Colored Cord
If you have multiple people living in your home who all have cell phones, consider purchasing a colored cord so that you can easily distinguish which cord is yours quickly and easily. The colored cord also allows you to easily see the cord when it is stored in a drawer or bag.
After you purchase the cord, be sure that you try it out as soon as possible so that you can make sure that the cord works well and is the perfect cord for your phone. The USB end of the cord can easily be plugged into a wall or car adapter so that you can charge your phone whenever you need to charge it without having to take time out of your day to do so.
