I don't know if anyone have you noticed that the charging time may vary according to the quality of connector (charging cable) used. Once during a trip I forgot my iPhone's charging cable so I bought a cheap one for the charging of my cellphone. The cable did work but it took way longer to charge my phone compared to the cable I used back at home (the original cable). In both the cases the source for charging was the same (i.e laptop).
I still can't figure out what may be the reason. It did charge the phone eventually so that means it did work. The charging source was the same in both cases so it leaves us with only two things, either the wire may not be of the same quality or maybe the connection of the wire with ends may not be of the same quality.
This information is quite useful to have, so thanks for the article. The connector might be something that a lot of people don't think about but it's key to ensuring the longevity and chargeability of a mobile device.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
