Belkin DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable with Strap Review
Summary: Belkin DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable with Strap is a must have cable for owners of USB-C compatible devices!
While I love USB-C fast-charging, the cable that came with my smartphone(s) leaves a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to sturdiness or length for that matter. Not only do these cables feel a little flimsy but they are quite short.
Cue in the Belkin DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable with Strap that is made from Duratek technology which according to this company is 10-times stronger than traditional cables. It also looks stylish thanks to its speckled design. So not only is it strong but it’s a looker as well!
Australians are just as passionate about design as they are functionality, so we have also re-designed the look and feel of the DuraTek Plus range with a leather strap for organisational convenience, as well as a new speckled design with two colour-ways for consumers to choose from.
– Stephanie Ogden, Managing Director, Belkin Australia.
The Belkin DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable with Strap also comes in three lengths (1.2, 1.8 and 3 metres) and two colours (black / white). The design of Duratek includes a combination of aluminium circuit board casing, aramid fibre-reinforced conductors plus flexible insulation which increases durability and a double-braided nylon jacket. Needless to say, it feels strong and if you’re game, you could probably use this cable to climb… maybe the 3 metre one.
Well packed from Belkin, the DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable also comes with a clever leather strap in order to provide some cable management and keep things neat. We also tested this cable on a Samsung Galaxy S10, Huawei P30 Pro and an Oppo Reno 5G and we had no issues whatsoever with either of these smartphones. Furthermore the connectors feel quite strong and overall it is a well-designed and fast cable.
So if you’re looking for a new cable for your USB-C device, check out the very clever, stylish and strong DuraTek™ Plus USB-C™ to USB-A Cable with Strap from Belkin.
