The Smart IC chip will automatically detect the connected gadget/device type and adjust the current based on its needs. The blue LED lighting is soft and attractive, meaning that you can easily find your phone without turning on the lights but will also be unlikely distracted by the LED light. 

CONS

The nylon braiding is not great. 

OUR VERDICT

The TOPK CX-3SK 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable covers all the bases, from the heads that you can rotate 360 degrees to the 2 L-shaped cables to the cable variety that offers the perfect cable length for different needs and scenarios (like the 1-foot cable that will be a perfect fit for power banks).

CONS

There are 6 cables but only 5 magnetic tip sets. 

OUR VERDICT

The kit includes six cables, so you can leave one at home, one in the office, one in the car, save one for your bag, and leave the remaining two as backup cables. The aluminum alloy shell prevents the cables from corroding and makes sure they don't start forming rust patches.

The LED indicator light is pretty bright. 

OUR VERDICT

This kit is packing the most consistent high-output magnetic cables. Using these cables, stretching 6.6 feet and 3 amps where the length and maximum current are concerned, you'll be wasting less time recharging gadgets and more time enjoying them.

TOPK CX-3SK 4-Pack

Soft LED Lighting

The TOPK CX-3SK 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable includes the most attractive cables, hands-down. The difference is not huge but there's something about the company's blue LED lights that make them look cool. Plus, the lighting is soft, so it will let you find the phone in the dark but without annoying you with a bright light.

The braiding has some blue wrapped between the black braids as well but the issue here is that the braiding is not as strong as you would expect from the price, so this is not necessarily something worth highlighting. What is worth highlighting though are the strong magnets inside the tips that will let you hold and even dangle the heaviest phone by the cable knowing that the cable will not disconnect.

Removing the magnets' strength from the equation, this is a standard magnetic charging cable pack, including two L-shaped cables (the 6- and 10-foot ones) that enable interacting with the connected gadget without them (the cables) making the interaction inconvenient. The standard package also includes 360-degree rotating heads and the Quick Charge 2.0 support. Bottom line, the TOPK CX-3SK 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable makes a more appealing case than most magnetic cable packs, even if a little.

Terasako 4-Pack

30,000 Anti-Shedding Tests Passed

The Terasako 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable, as the name implies, packs four cables, including a one-foot cable, a three-foot cable, and two six-foot cables. The magnetic tips on these cables have been designed slim, so you can fit them without removing bulky cases. Also, these tips have passed 30,000+ anti-shedding tests, so you do not have to worry about losing them. Even more interesting is that, when inserted, these tips will prevent dust from sticking to the gadget's charging interfaces, so you can even store them there. But, on the opposing side, the USB Type-A connectors on the cables are pretty tight, which means you'll have to apply some effort to imbed them.

Aside from the size difference, the six-foot cables come adopting this 90-degree, L-shaped design that lets you charge and interact with the phone simultaneously without the cord getting in the way. Removing that from the equation, the cables are very much alike, including the QC 2.0 support, the LED lights indicating that the gadget is recharging, and the nylon braiding that makes the cords resilient.

To summarize, the Terasako 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable will work wonders for people with multiple gadgets, including drivers, individuals with vision impairments, elders, and handicapped persons.

TOPK 6-Pack

A Sizable Package

The TOPK 6-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable is a sizable package, no two ways about it. Considering the price, the fact that you receive six magnetic charging cables (one 1-foot cable, two 3-feet cables, two 6-feet cables, and one 10-foot cable) is quite impressive, even though they send you six magnetic cables but five tip sets, which is a little odd, but not necessarily that concerning or upsetting.

The 10-foot cable is not upsetting at all, allowing you to, say, recharge a smartphone from an outlet that is literally 10 feet away from you, something that hotels sometimes pull off (shame on them, really). Also, both this cable and the two 6-feet cables are L-shaped, so you can play games on that smartphone without the cable getting in the way.

To add more, L-shaped cables are less prone to tangling. While we're on the subject, the aluminum alloy shell also makes the cables less prone to tangling, and pretty much immune against rust and corrosion, meaning that you can store them in a humid environment without worrying that the cable will corrode.

Concluding the review, just like most magnetic charging cables nowadays, these ones come adopting 360-degree rotating heads and LED indicators, so they're no worse than the more expensive alternatives, making this 6-pack the set to beat.

CAFELE 2-Pack

Serious Cables

The CAFELE Magnetic Charging Cable Kit is less about guesswork and more about making sure that you have your charging needs covered. Unwrapping the package, the kit includes only two cables measuring 6.6 feet each. They're quality cables, nothing less, but also nothing more. Not unlike most magnetic cables, these ones come equipped with 360-degree rotating heads, so you do not have to rotate the gadget. The cords come are featuring nylon braiding, protecting the wires from the outside world. There are LED rings on these cables, shining bright and enabling you to easily find the phone at night.

In fact, some might find these lights a little too bright, even though the people behind the kit are advertising them as "soft and comfortable". We can debate the soft and comfortable part but we cannot debate the 56K ohm resistors protecting the gadgets connected to the cables from voltage drops and surges. We also cannot debate the TPE jackets that make the cords flexible while still making sure that they're able to survive at least 10,000 bends.

To put it differently, the CAFELE Magnetic Charging Cable Kit is not playing. The kit's packing cables you can trust, from the resilient build to the length to the max current reaching 3 amps.

Utotrip 4-Pack

With a Storage Case This Time

The Utotrip 4-Pack Magnetic Charging Cable presents pretty much the same deal that the kits above, except that, this time, you're also offered a storage case, not the biggest addition imaginable but, hey, the case simplifies storage and enables comfortable transportation, so we don't mind it, not one bit. We do mind that the magnets on these charging cables are not as strong as they usually are, which is a shame considering that everything else about these cables does not disappoint but this is a big one.

Still, we're willing to forgive the transgression, especially when you take into account the fact that the pack includes a 10-foot cable, so you can connect devices without scooching them next to each other and recharge them without putting them too close to an outlet. Also, both this cable and the two 6-feet cables adopt an L-shaped profile, so you can interact with the connected device without the cable getting between you and the screen/controls. They all come equipped with LED indicators and feature nylon braiding, preventing them from twisting and tangling.

In other words, as long as you're fine with the fact that cable might give out when you turn the connected device upside down, this 4-pack from Utotrip is about as good as any magnetic charging cable kit.

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, magnetic cables 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.
