Choetech USB-C to Lightning Cable

Choetech's USB-C to lightning cable is Apple certified and can be used with most iPhone devices.

It allows for a 480Mbps transfer speed when connected to laptops, it can be paired with Quick Charge adapters, and it's made for the newest iPhone generations.

The cable is 2m (6.7") long and is compact enough to fit into any purse, bag, or travel case.

Choetech's USB-C Wall Charger

Want to maximize your charging speeds, then look no further than Choetech's own 18W USB-C wall charger with power delivery and Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

It's super fast and comes with over-current, over-voltage, over-heating, over-charging, and short-circuit protections. It's made with premium & durable materials (same with the USB-C to lightning cable) and it can last for years.

Best Features of Choetech Adapter & Lightning Cable

You can't go wrong with purchasing both the Choetech USB-C to lightning cable and the QC adapter. Personally I think they should be sold as a set because they're very good to have by your side.

5 Best Features

  • Fast Transfer Speeds
  • 18W Power Delivery Charging
  • Travel Friendly
  • Android & iPhone Compatibility
  • Premium Quality

Fast Transfer Speeds

The USB-C to lightning cable delivers up to 480Mbps of reliable transfer speeds. This allows you to sync your data in an instant, which is great when needing to collect files from your work & school laptops.

Furthermore, the over 6 feet cable is more than enough to be versatile and not get in the way. Finally it's an excellent travel accessory, which I address further down.

18W Power Delivery Charging

The double shot of 18W PD and QC 3.0 support makes the Choetech adapter one of a kind.

It can fully charge your Apple or Android products 2-3x as fast as a standard adapter, and you never have to worry about it overheating your smartphones.

Note: You'll need to use the USB-C to lightning cable to fast charge your iPhone devices

Both the cable and the adapter come with an 18 month warranty just in case something goes wrong, and if you're not satisfied with your purchase, then you can contact the company at support@choetech.com or visit their site to learn more.

Travel Friendly

Either item will fit into your travel case or bag without worry.

The cables are compact enough that they won't give you trouble, and the adapter is small enough so that it won't obstruct more than one outlet when in use.

The cable pairs well with other USB-C products including power banks and battery packs. Just connect your phone to a power unit and charge your smartphone on the go in no time.

Getting ready has never been easier.

Android & iPhone Compatibility

The QC adapter can be used with Android and iPhone devices as long as you use the lightning conversion cable.

As mentioned, you already get a USB-C to C cable included with the adapter, which is generally compatible with the last few Samsung and Google smartphone generations.

But that's not all of course...

If you check out my list of compatible devices, you'll see that it works with iPads, the Nintendo Switch, and many "other" categories.

Premium Quality

I'm a big fan of the material used for the cables and adapter. It makes them look like premium devices, and it gives them durability, reliability, and potentially years of usage.

I haven't had my items for long but based on what other consumers have said, I should be plenty satisfied with my products.

Worst Features & Final Review

My list of worst features is very short; my only issue is that there are more powerful products available. Choetech itself specializes in charging adapters that deliver very powerful PD charging for things like Mac Books and PCs.

18W PD is not enough for me to charge my laptop, but that's not what it was intended to do, so I'll give it a pass. Other than that I haven't seen anything that would give me pause though I'll keep an eye on wear and tear possibilities.

I give the Choetech USB-C to Lightning Cable & the USB-C Wall Charger 4.75 out of 5 stars.

They are excellent travel accessories, they have wide compatibility, they're packed with safety features, and they deliver more than adequate charging/transfer speeds. Understandably more powerful options exist, but these two products will do just fine.

I haven't even mentioned their overall cost. The QC 3.0 Wall Charger runs at about $20-22 with the lightning cable being around the same mark. And while that may sound pricey to some, keep in mind this is an Apple certified cable so it'll run higher than normal.

Overall I think anyone with an Apple device needs to purchase the USB-C to lightning cable & the adapter and everyone else would do well with just the adapter.

These are fantastic products that do what they're supposed to, and I highly recommend them both.

Your Thoughts!

I live in West Virginia in my small space with 3 of my grand kids and my blind daughter in-law. The kids grew older and required more expenses. Survival got more difficult so I inquired for a loan to get a bigger house and start up a business. My bad report kept on preventing me from getting the loan. I started seeking for a hacker to help me fix my credit report. On a discussion with Sarah, a customer, she recommended TRINITY services to me. She told me how they fixed up her DUI report and increased her credit score. It sounded too good to be true so, I doubted the process however, I gave it a try because there was no other option left. Every member of my family say a very big thank you to TRINITY services for the discreet service rendered to me. They fixed up my report neatly and smoothly all within 7 days. Eventually I'm qualified for everything. My business is expanded and I live in a new home now. I deem it wise and helpful if I dropped their contact here since I know lots of us here might need some help. Email TRINITYCREDITREPAIR01@GMAIL.COM text (512)790-5878.
