Since the age of mobile device has come, the frequency of using cable increases a lot. Besides the original ones, the market is full of cheap cables of different qualities. We are thinking about what a cable should be like that really suits the users?
We think: First, it must be able to bear a great deal of pull, drag, and rub that happens in real life. Second, it not only supports the latest and fastest transmission standard, but also supplies heavier current safely. Third, it can be used under different device platforms and situations. Fourth, because it’s frequently used, the features of producing process, eco-friendly and safety should go through strictest test without any mistakes.
This is the process of looking for the new definition of cable and how uCable was born.
The secret of fishing line
Sturdy materials are often heavy, while light materials are often weak. To give uCable tough outer layer, after trying tens of materials, including metal and chemical fiber, we find out fishing line is both light and sturdy. Its wire diameter has only a few millimeters, but can bear big fish over hundreds kilograms. It’s the best material to make cables.
Evolutional weaving is super tough
Though we find fishing line both light and tough, how to make it the cable’s outer layer is the biggest task. uCable decides to use multi-layer weaving, making fishing line interweave tightly, cover the wire layer by layer. Fishing line can not only bear the rub and drag, but more important, it does not like the products that are made of cotton thread, which is easily cut by sharp things or have lint balls.

No matter how far the distance is, no matter how different the joints are
uCable’s fast and stable transfer should be experienced on every device. Therefore, when designing uCable, we put every situation that could happen in daily life into consideration. In the light of different occasions and standard of joints, we design uCable in three sizes, 25cm, 120cm, and 200cm. Regardless of the transfer distance and the device difference, uCable is able to meet every user's’ demand.
Meet All Needs 25cm、120cm、200cm
Small inspiration, big changes
Tangled cable not only troubles user storage, but also makes copper easily damaged due to improper bending. In this way, the lifetime of cable decreases, and the exposed core of cable is under the risk of short circuit. Problems that seem tricky can be solved by small inspiration. uCable in the size of 120cm and 200cm are attached with Velcro strap. The storage of cable can be finished in the action of a circle and a stick, changing the current situation of having difficulties storing cable
Safety is always guaranteed
Cable, such an important accessory that will be used every day, should be tested under the highest product standard. Therefore, uCable should not only get the performance and safety certification, but also accept the official test of toxicity and eco-friendly. This is why all series of uCable pass both Apple’s MFi and EU’s RoHS environmental standards.
Inner is the touchstone of the quality
A cable’s quality depends on the wire diameters and material of the cable core. The bigger the cross-sectional area of the cable core is, the less the impedance will have. uCable uses 22AWG cable core, hence, uCable can reach the standard of 2.4A quick charging, the transmission rate can also increase up to 145%. “American wire gauge (AWG) is a standardized wire gauge system. Decreasing gauge numbers denote increasing wire diameters and bear heavier current.” —Wikipedia

Your best Lightning cable
The goal of designing uCable is never set as “the quality that equals to the original cable is OK”, but to create a new product with strength, quality, and eco-friendly that have never seen before. This is the reason why uCable Lightning series go beyond not just the cables of other brands, but the original ones.
