PROS
The 360-degree rotating heads are quite alright at preventing the cables from tangling up. Plus, with these heads, you can always insert connectors without rotating your phone. The nylon braiding has passed 10,000+ bending tests.
CONS

The USB Type-A connectors are a bit tight.

OUR VERDICT

The TOPK AM68 will fit drivers, gamers, office workers, you name the crowd. The 1-metre cable will work wonders with cars, while the 2-metre and 3-metre cables, adopting an L-shaped design, will let you use the phone in a landscape mode without the cable blocking the screen.

OUR VERDICT

Between the 4 sets USB Type-C, Micro USB, and Lightning connectors that come with this kit, the NetDot 10G3IN1 covers large families with a dozen of different devices. Plus, with the cables ranging from 0.3 metres to 2 metres, the kit also covers different needs.

PROS

The compressed aluminium shell, along with the ergonomic USB-C connectors, will let you recharge phones inside the thickest, bulkiest cases without removing these cases first. The blue LED indicators are not unnecessarily bright but very much noticeable at night.

CONS

The actual transfer speed is slower than advertised. 

OUR VERDICT

The RAVIAD RI-083-SI packs two magnetic charging cables with two USB Type-C connectors, somewhat disappointing the Apple crowd but, on the flip side, accommodating Android users' needs. You can leave one cable at home and carry one with you.

PROS

Doubling as plugs, the connectors that come with this kit protect the phone from dust and moisture whilst charging. The durable nylon braiding is abrasion-resistant and will not start wearing out even dealing with friction on a frequent basis. 

CONS

The magnets are pretty weak. 

OUR VERDICT

As long as you're okay with multiple orders or need only one cable, the RAVIAD RI-032-BK will be the right kit for you. With the included USB Type-C, Micro USB, and Lightning connectors, you can recharge pretty much every Android and Apple device out there.

PROS

Made from high-strength TPE, the jacket on these cables remains flexible but also makes sure that the copper conductors are isolated from the elements. The small LED strip on the cables' side is discreet but the illumination it provides is sufficient. 

CONS

The connectors will not work with the thickest phone cases. 

OUR VERDICT

Supporting the latest Quick Charge (QC 4.0) instalment, the NIMASO DSCCMa22 brings you two future-proof magnetic charging cables. With these cables, you'll be able to recharge the newest flagship Android phones within 90 minutes tops.

TOPK AM68

A Respectable Set

The TOPK AM68 is a sizable package that covers most users' needs. The package features 5 magnetic charging cables, including a 0.5-metre one, a 1-metre cable, two 2-metre cables, and one 3-metre model. You can leave one at work, use one whilst driving, and juggle between the rest when they're more convenient than the others. The cables include USB-C, Micro USB, and Lightning connectors (4 sets), so you can recharge most gadgets, including Android tablets, phones, and Apple products.

But the best part is that the two 2-metre cables and the 3-metre one adopt an L-shaped design, which means that, with these cables, you can recharge the phone and use it at the same time without the cable getting in the way. Apart from that, this is the same package that most magnetic phone charging cables contain. The nylon braiding on these cables is nothing to sneeze at, with 10,000+ bending tests passed. The 360-degree rotating heads will prevent the cable from tangling up and let you insert it without rotating the phone/tablet.

The USB Type-A connectors are a bit tight. Besides that, the TOPK AM68 will fit most needs, from cars to phones at home on the bedside table to laptops at work. Also, as always, they support the QC 2.0 tech.

NetDot (10G3IN1)

The Strongest Magnets

The NetDot 10G3IN1 is not very different from the previous kit. First things first, the kit supplies you with 4 magnetic charging cables: 0.3 metres, 1 metre, 1.5 metres, and 2 metres. We're not necessarily crazy about the 0.3-metre cable but some might like it.

What we're somewhat crazy about is the high-performance copper wires on these things. Incorporating high-quality shielding, the wires keep the connection stable even with multiple electromagnetic interference sources surrounding them. To add more, the cables come equipped with extra-strength magnets, so you can suspend the phone on it without worrying that the magnet may give up and drop the precious smart gadget.

Where things get a little dicey is with the LED indicators. As far as we're concerned, they're too bright, meaning that some users might find them a little distracting at night.

However, there's nothing distracting about the 4 sets of USB-C, Micro USB, and Lightning connectors that arrive with the package, making sure that you can use these cables with most modern-day devices, including Apple products. Taking everything above, as well as the cables' high speed (480 Mbps) into account, the NetDot 10G3IN1 is the magnetic charging cable kit you don't want to miss.

RAVIAD (RI-083-SI)

No Apples This Time Around

The RAVIAD RI-083-SI is not the complete set that the two preceding kits were. No, with this set, you receive two 2-metre magnetic charging cables and two USB Type-C connectors, which means that Apple users will not be able to benefit from this kit. On the plus side, the compact aluminium shell and the ergonomic USB-C connectors will fit even the thickest, chunkiest phone cases, letting you recharge your phone without removing the case first. What's more, unlike previous cables, the ones that come with this lot support the QC 3.0 tech, so you'll be recharging the devices that support the third Quick Charge instalment in a snap.

Having said that, the cables are not quite as fast as advertised. As per usual, they should be able to reach 480 Mbps throughput but, more often than not, they cap at around 400-450 Mbps. Somewhat offsetting this little issue is the blue LED indicators on the cables' heads that are noticeable in the dark but not excessively bright. Likewise, the 360-degree rotating heads will make sure the cables do not tangle up and that you can insert 'em without turning your phone.

Bottom line, unless you like apples, you should not regret going with these magnetic charging cables.

RAVIAD (RI-032-BK)

More Egalitarian

The RAVIAD RI-032-BK is a bit more egalitarian than the kit from the same company that we've reviewed before. With this kit, you're offered one magnetic charging cable, not two. But, on the upside, the kit also includes USB-C, Micro USB, and Lightning connectors (one each), so you can use this cable with iPhones, iPads, AirPods, MacBooks, and those devices that work with Micro USB ports as well. Of course, with the USB-C interface, you'll also be able to recharge most Android devices. Needless to say, the fact that this set includes only one cable is not a problem since you can always buy multiple sets.

What is a problem is that the magnets on these cables are always a tad weak, meaning that we would not recommend suspending expensive devices on them. The good news is that the connectors that are shipped with the cable also double as tight plugs, protecting the phone from the elements whilst charging. The same (more or less) can be said about the beefy nylon braiding on the cable, protecting the wires and handling friction/abrasion with relative ease. So, assuming you don't mind going with multiple orders or don't need more than one cable, the RAVIAD RI-032-BK will prove right up your alley.

NIMASO (DSCCMa22)

Supporting Quick Charge 4

The NIMASO DSCCMa22 makes quite an impression. Initially, the set does not include 0.5-metre or 3-metre cables because, truth be told, most users don't need those. Instead, this kit packs two magnetic charging cables (2 metres each) and two USB Type-C connectors. As you know, that means these connectors will not work with Apple products but will have no problems with Android devices.

The most interesting (and impressive) thing about these cables is that they support the latest Quick Charge protocol. Sure, there are very few phones today that support QC 4.0 but they're growing in numbers, making these cables future-proof. Of course, supporting QC 4.0 also means that the cable's maximum data throughput reaches 480 Mbps since, otherwise, what would even be the point?

Setting aside the QC 4.0 support, they're pretty much the same magnetic phone charging cables that you've seen countless times before. The nylon braiding on them is plenty durable, and the 180-degree rotating heads more or less suffice. A nice little detail is that, ditching the usual extra-bright LED indicators, these cables come with this small but noticeable blue strip that will not make you feel uncomfortable at night but will provide sufficient illumination, making this kit's case even more convincing.

What Is a Magnetic Charging Cable?

Most people these days own multiple portable devices, from smartphones and tablets to laptops and anything in-between. These devices' portable nature means you have to constantly recharge them. More often than not, these electronics already come supplied with charging cables. These cables are not nearly as comfortable and convenient as magnetic charging cables though.

With magnetic cables, you never have any issues quickly and easily inserting and removing the cables using one hand. All people are able to benefit from these cables but especially drivers, handicapped people, children, and more.

Plus, more often than not, these cable kits are more sophisticated than their standard counterparts, equipped with LED lights to make them visible in dark rooms and removable tips so that you don't have to carry 10 cables with you to recharge different devices. Apart from that, cables with magnetic adapters are usually adopting rotating heads so that you can insert them into any suitable port with ease.

HDMI and DisplayPort cables do not have to be magnetic though since you're not removing them as often as USB cables, so you can look into these more orthodox products too.
