Proving that it indeed is the little things in life that matter, my AmazonBasics USB Cable, 2.0 A Male to Micro B (6 Feet /1.8 Meters) has given me great satisfaction in weathering Hurricane Irene.
Having extra power cables like this is good when you travel and for $6 you can be better prepared for disasters and ready to get a charge when you need it.
One end of the AmazonBasics USB Cable is a micro USB connector that plugs into my HTC Android phone and that also is compatible with Blackberrys phones, and the other end of the cable plugs into a USB port on your computer. So you can charge phones when by plugging into the USB port on your computer.
With the GTMax Blue LED 2-Port USB Home Wall Travel AC Charger Power Adapter, the AmazonBasics USB Cable plugs into a wall outlet. In fact, with two ports, you can power two devices at once.
With no power at my home or office in Jericho, New York, due to Hurricane Irene, the six-foot cord comes on handy because it allows me to talk on the phone while I am charging.
It’s good to be prepared.
