Top 10 Best USB-C Cables For Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus - March 2018

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are both sporting USB-C connectors on the bottom of them, like their predecessors. Which means that many that did skip the Galaxy S8, will likely need to get a new set of cables for charging their smartphones around the house, at work and even in the car. Samsung does, as you'd expect, include a USB-C cable in the box, but that is just one cable. It's always a good idea to have more than one available. So we have rounded up the best USB-C cables available right now and listed the 10 best down below.

There are essentially two types of cables, braided and those that aren't braided. If you have pets and/or kids at home, or even do a lot of traveling, you are going to want the braided cables. These cables are more durable and can handle being bent more than just the regular plastic cables. While braided cables are often times more expensive than regular cables, it is worth it in the long run. As these braided cables just won't break, no matter what happens. Some of our favorites come from Anker and its PowerLine+ lineup. These cables come in lengths up to 10-feet and also come in red, which really stand out - and make it easy to distinguish from others that might be in your bag. But AUKEY, Cable Matters and many others have braided cables available too.

Now there are some other options here, like the 5-pack of AUKEY cables down below, that will also work well. These are great because they will allow you to pick up a handful of cables without spending a ton of money. All of the USB-C cables that are listed below are all great options for those looking to pick up a spare or two, or more.

AUKEY USB-C Cables (5-Pack)

AUKEY here has a 5-pack of USB-C cables that would work great with either the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus. These do come in varying sizes, including 1-foot, 3.3-foot, and 6.6-feet long. Which makes them great for using around the house to keep your smartphone fully charged.

BrexLink Braided USB-C Cable

This here is a braided cable, from BrexLink. A Braided cable is a great idea, since it is going to be much more durable than the other cables you pick up for the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus. A braided cable is able to take more bends and even some chewing by pets or little kids, before it breaks.

Anker PowerLine+ USB-C to USB-A Fast Charging Cable

Anker also has a pair of USB-C cables here, these are USB-C to USB-A cables, and are also braided. These are available in red or gray and are also fairly long - in fact, they are 6-feet long. Which is going to be great for taking when traveling, as it'll be able to reach any outlet with ease.

Benicabe (6 Ft 2-Pack) Nylon Braided USB-C Cable

Benicabe also has a pair of 6-foot long braided cables that will work great on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. Since these are nice and long, they'll work great next to your bed, or in your office, even in the car with a nice car charger.

Airsspu Nylon Braided USB-A to USB-C Charging Cable

Airsspu also has a pack of braided USB-C to USB-A cables here. This one in particular is a four pack of cables, with a 3-foot long, two 6-foot long and a 10-foot long cable. The 10-foot long cable is going to be more than long enough, and some might even think its too long. But it's great to have when you need it.

Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cables

If you don't think you'll need (or want) braided cables, Anker also has a 5-pack of USB-C to USB-A cables here for you to pick up. This is part of its PowerLine series and are still a great pick up, especially if you are in need of USB-C cables right now.

Nekteck USB-C Cables

Nekteck also has a 5-pack of USB-C cables, and like Anker, these also come in a slew of different sizes, from 3-feet all the way up to 10-feet long. Definitely a good option for those looking for some new USB-C cables to keep in their arsenal.

Tronsmart USB-C to USB-A Cable

Just looking for a simple, inexpensive USB-C cable? Tronsmart has your back. Now this is still a pack of two, but they are 3.3-feet long cables with one in black and the other in white. And the best part is that these are also under $10. They are USB-C to USB-A cables.

Nekteck Nylon Braided USB-C Cable

Nekteck does also do braided cables, and it has one here that is a USB-C to USB-A cable, and it looks great. It's also going to work great when you are traveling and such. This one will work perfectly fine with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus as well as other USB-C smartphones out there.

Cable Matters 2-Pack Braided Premium USB-C Cable

Cable Matters does also have a 2-pack of braided USB-C cables available. These aren't flashy or anything like the red ones from Anker, as these are just black. But they do the job and shouldn't break easily - or at all, which is what matters here.
