It is necessary to highlight that if two cables are made with the same materials and even have the same dimensions, when you charge your device it should reach from 0 to 100 percent in the same amount of minutes or hours, it is logical since the speed of the current it does not change, but keep in mind that the transfer of it is not free because the cables offer resistance, reported the technology portal AndroidPhoria.
It may sound confusing, but science says that “the resistance of any cable is equal to the ratio of its length to its cross-sectional area”, in simpler words, if the cable is longer it offers greater resistance to current, which which would cause the cell phone to reach less voltage and take longer to charge from 0% to 100%.
