Best charging cables for iPads and tablets in 2021

June 15, 2021

It’s not exactly the most glamourous side of the tech industry, but the charging cable you select to power your iPad or tablet can make a world of difference when it comes speed of recharge and general productivity.

Pick the wrong option and it can randomly stop working, prove incompatible, or offer a highly frustrating intermittent experience where it’s luck of the draw as to whether your tablet is charged or not.

Pick the right offering, and that cable is likely to last a lot longer while offering an effortless and swift charging experience.

It all begs the question, what exactly are the best charging cables currently available? So, let’s take a quick look at the best charging cables for iPads and tablets in 2021.

What to look for in an iPad or tablet charging cable

Before we take a deep dive into a bit of a top three, it pays to know what you’re looking for when selecting the right cable to charge your iPad or tablet.

 

Features to be on the lookout for include:

  • Overall quality of materials – is it durable and flexible or cheap plastic?
  • Compatibility – Naturally, you’ll need a charger that’s compatible with your primary device, but is it also compatible with other items you might regularly use, like your phone? This saves the headache of having random cords forming tangled nests of tech hardware in your desk drawer.
  • Durability – It’s prudent to have a little empathy for your charging cable. After all they endure a lot of pushing, pulling, rolling and tangling. Is it durable enough to survive the life that awaits it?
  • Price point – A charging cable is a necessary item, so it shouldn’t break the bank.
  • Cord length – Charging cords range in length, so consider how and where will you be charging your iPad or tablet. This question determines the length of the cord you should go for.

 

In addition to the basic necessities, it’s also worth considering some other neat features that a tablet or iPad charging cable can offer, including:

  • Fast charge – It’s true some cables charge faster than others, so keep a lookout for fast charge options that can have your powered up and back to being mobile quickly.
  • Protected charging head – By nature, charging cables have some weak spots and one of them is the charging head, which takes the brunt of all that pushing and pulling. Look for a reinforced charging head.
  • Reinforced cord – Another weak spot is the materials the cord is made of. They can crack break and expose the inner wiring if they are of sub-standard quality or subject to a lot of use. Opt for a reinforced cable where you can.
  • Charging head direction – Consider how you use your device. If it’s primarily in landscape mode (for example it might be used as mPOS) look for a charging head that is right-angled and reinforced to protect the cable from breakage.

5 Handy iPad Stands

December 31, 2018
If you've ever walked into the Apple store, anywhere in the world, you'll notice one very remarkable thing: It's always packed. Part of the appeal, of course, are the products: Apple products are coveted. But part of the attraction is the customer or user's experience. Apple stores are strategically set up in a way that not only invites the customer in but encourages them to use the products that are set up on the tables — including tablets, smartphones, laptops and more. In brick-and-mortar stores, in fact, there is an awareness by retail brands that part of the customer experience is bringing the digital, "do it yourself" ethic into the shopping process. This means that customers should be able to access digital technology such as iPads, tablets and even smartphones when gaining discounts using QR codes, ordering new items or learning about the specs of a product before purchasing. In other words, the set up of digital interfaces in physical stores matters to the customer experience. And to facilitate this integration, here are 10 of the best iPad and tablet holders that enhance the customer's in-store experience in the age of e-commerce.
