New App To Check The Safety Of USB Type-C Cables

As we mentioned in our previous post about Amazon cracking down on sellers of unsafe USBs, it’s now evident that many USB Type-C cables are just plain dangerous. With incredible utility does indeed come great responsibility but manufacturers and resellers have not been prioritizing manageable temps and safe power transfers in efforts to maximize data speeds. Fortunately, USBCheck has a solution to put testing for cable integrity directly into the user’s hands.

USBCheck checks current draw when a compatible device is connected to a PC USB port and will tell you if the current draw is following appropriate USB specs and recommendations. While it’s not 100% accurate to keep up with all the devices out there, it gives a strict value which a user can then check against manufacturer power specs.

The app is currently compatible with Nexus and Pixel devices and is looking to expand for phones with future USB Type-C models. Additionally, the device must be connected to a computer USB port, not a wall adapter, in order to work properly.
