USB charger for the Lumia 1020

dealnewb 2,085 786 February 4, 2016 at 06:46 AM
The usb cables I have now take hours to charge my phone. Im not using the ones that came with the phone. Can anyone recommend good cables that will charge it quicker?

The wall outlet and usb cable that came with is not much better:
Input: 100-240V
Output: 5V; 1300mA
Includes: Wall adapter and Micro-USB Cable
Cable length: 3 feet

The cable does not make it charge faster. 5V output is as good as you will get. It must be your phone.

I read on lifehacker that getting a a 28/24 gauge cable. 24 gauge would charge it faster. You think its bs?

Sounds like BS. If the cable was not capable of carrying the voltage requested by the device (5V?), I think it would be out of spec (for USB) and probably get warm to the touch.
