It happens to everyone, including students and teachers — you’re starting to run out of power and you’re looking for an outlet or a powerbank for your phone, but you don’t have a power cable. Never go without power by keeping a few USB-C cables around the home, in your bag or in the car. USB-C cables have a standard USB-A plug on one end and a USB-C — which can plug into most phones and quite a few other devices — on the other.

The JSaux USB-C cables are available in seven colors and are sold as two-packs, so you always have a backup cable on hand. Each cable measures 6 feet long with a braided cord.

This USB-C cable is compatible with all Huawei and Samsung devices and is Type C to Type A. This pick features a braided cable with reinforced joints for increased durability.

This pick features five braided cables and can transfer data at a rate of 480 megabits per second. It is compatible with all USB-C-based devices.

With this three-pack of USB-C cables, you can choose from six different hues. The braided cables are designed for added durability. The data transfer rate is 480 megabits per second.

These Anker USB-C cables are also nylon braided for added durability. You’ll get two 6 cables that can transfer at a rate of 480 megabits per second.

Expert Commentary

USB-C cables are essential for every modern student and teacher. Never run out with these durable multi-packs that are the best options today. Choose the length, material and quantity you need. I personally enjoy the braided varieties and always choose the multi-packs because I know we’ll need multiples in our household.
