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.
