Like most USB cables, Seidio’s design is pretty straightforward. Whether it’s the USB-A to USB-C, USB-A to Micro-USB, or Micro-USB female adapter to USB-C cables, each cable is covered with a smooth finish black and grey Nylon braided cable which increases durability and longevity. The connector ends are housed in a hard sturdy plastic shell, which provide a good grip and rigidity when inserting it into your charging adapter or device. The cables are also available in 0.5′. 1′, 3′, and 6′ lengths — depending on which cables you’re looking at. The longer cables also include a velcro strap for easier storage when the cable is wrapped up. As far as USB cables go, the Seidio cables are pretty classy looking with the braided cable design.
Ease of Use
Nothing unexpected here, these cables worked exactly as expected. Whether connecting to a Micro-USB or USB-C device, the connectors are solid, and fit snugly into all the devices I tried. The cables powered, charged, or transferred data just fine, and I had no issues at all using the USB-C cables with my Nexus 6P or my wife’s Nexus 5X. The Micro-USB female adapter to USB-C adapter worked like a charm as well, and I had no issues using it to achieve rapid charging with my Nexus 6P.
While the Seidio USB cables aren’t the cheapest around, they’re also not the most expensive. Ranging in price from $9.95 for a pair of USB 2.0 to Micro-USB to $16.95 for a single USB 3.0 to Type C cables, the Seidio cables are pretty reasonably priced for the build quality. Coupled with their current site-wide 30% off spring sale, you’re definitely getting a great value with these cables. Enter the promo code SPRING16 at checkout for your discount.
