See the Secrets of How Charging Cables work and more – buy them today!

So your smartphone needs a charge. What do you do – you take a cable and you plug it in. Almost any device you want to charge, there’s a cable for that. But, how do they work – well, that’s what we hope to shine a light on here.

 

Every USB cable has at least two wires inside, no matter if it’s being used to power a device, charge, and/or for data transfer. All electric circuits depend on loops and in order for a loop to occur within a cable, two wires are needed. The key idea to remember is electric current which is the movement of an electric charge inside of a metal wire. A flow of charges is created by the electric field housed in the wire. If there’s no closed loop, the charge quickly will build on a wire’s surface, creating a zero electric field with no current. Alternatively, with a closed loop, mobile electrons reach back towards where they’re coming from and prevent charges from building up.

 

In most USB cables, there may be between four and five wires. The average Apple lightning USB cable has 5 wires. They typically are color-coded, such as in red, green, white, and black. The colors correspond to a code. ‘Red’ is a positive wire with 5 volts of DC power; ‘black’ is usually the ground wire in almost all electronic devices including USB cables; ‘white’ is the positive wire; and ‘green’ is the negative wire, used for data in tandem with white. A USB connector’s engineered so that the power wires are closer to the tip than the data pins, giving your device power before transferring data.

To complete an electrical circuit when you want to charge your phone, one end of the cable must be plugged into your phone and the other end into a charger. Back and forth, electrons then flow to the charger along the surface of a copper wire. For data transfer, data wires take on the opposite polarity on the same frequency meaning a mirror image is created. The white wire pushes data to its destination while the green wire is working in the opposite direction. This eliminates noise and allows a clear connection to be maintained.

 

As a USB Type-C cable is bent and beat up over time, eventually one of the wire strands break which is what causes a cable to eventually fail. If any one of the four wires snaps, the result is a malfunctioning cable which cannot complete its circuit.

Is it Time to Upgrade your Network Cable to Cat6 and Future-Proof – we say yes!

Upgrading to Cat6a cables from Cat5 or Cat6 cable is unquestionably the best choice you can make if you’re struggling with your bandwidth and Internet speeds. As demand for faster efficiency with our Internet continues to peak, the old Cat standards no longer work.

 

New Ethernet installations done today should be done with at least Cat6 Ethernet cable, although Cat6a is even better. This is the most advanced Category Ethernet cable there is, perfect for today’s speed and bandwidth needs. Cat5 was a mid-to-late-1990s favourite while Cat5e rose in popularity in the 2000s. Cat6 has been in use since the late 2000s and in the last five years, Cat6a has received much attention for its advancements.

 

When it comes to future-proofing, what we mean is by installing a high quality advanced cable today, you’re preventing yourself from having to upgrade in the future. And, make no mistake, there will come a time when you need to upgrade. As the Internet continues to grow and use more bandwidth, you need the cable to handle it. Ethernet network cables like Cat6a are your best bet.

 

Something which a lot of homeowners and commercial businesses forget about Cat6a networking cable is that in order to achieve the bandwidth, network, and speed promised, all cabling and accessories must meet the minimum standard set out by the IEEE. If any single component’s low quality or older, you may not see the bandwidth improvements expected.

 

Can you still get by with Cat5 cable – not really. The maximum frequency it has is 100 MHz and speeds up to 100 Mbps. Although it may work for a local area network in some commercial environments, Cat5 cable is too slow for most applications and within a decade, will be completely gone. Cat5e cable is an enhanced version of Cat5e cable however and is designed to handle speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. Cat5e cable generally works for most applications, although when possible, switching to Cat6 cable is the better option.

 

If it’s a new Ethernet installation, Cat6 cable is absolutely a must. You’ll receive bandwidth allowance up to 250 MHZ and speeds up to 10 Gbps. Cat6a Ethernet cable has additional advantages over Cat6 and this includes higher bandwidth up to 500 MHZ, 10-gigabit speeds over 330 feet of cable which is double the length of what its cousin Cat6 allows.

Mount your TV while Keeping Things Simple, Fast, and Easy

The process of installing a TV wall mount and then, mounting your flat-screen can take time and effort. Done incorrectly and you could wind up with a damaged wall or TV. Unfortunately, poor TV wall mount installations are common. Equipment not mounted to studs and/or not enough screws are two of the several mistakes one can make when trying to mount. Alternatively, here are a few ways to keep things simple, fast, and easy.

 

Plan ahead.

 

Knowing what devices you need to connect, the cables you’ll need, your speaker system, and any shelving units or cabinets required to house your devices, make a plan as to how you want to proceed. You may choose to use certain devices wireless while in other households, it may be better to go with a wired Ethernet connection. Light, wall support, and height all need to factor in, when deciding where to place your TV wall mount.

Buy the correct cables.

You don’t want to have everything in its right place only to find out you don’t have the right cables or enough of them. If you’re concerned about the number of cables you have, consider a surge protector to keep things safe and hazard-free. You will also want to buy some cable ties if you’re going to have more than two or three cables. These ties can help keep wire together and organized.

 

Ventilation.

Every electronic device needs space to ventilate, as they all create heat which can damage them or shorten their lifespan. Therefore, ensure you’ve left a little space behind the TV set to ensure it does not overheat in any way. Any cabinetry you use for devices should also have ventilation holes to allow heat to escape. For device-heavy households, they may choose to install a cabinet cooling fan if everything’s locked in.

 

Use the studs.

The best advice we can give anyone when it comes time to affix your mount to the wall is to find the studs and use them. There is no point in mounting a flat-screen if there aren’t studs to attach the mount to. Be sure to use a stud finder and use those studs as a means of securing your wall mount. They will help in ensuring the weight of a flat-screen does not cause any damage to the wall.

 

Using these tips, we’re confident installing a TV wall mount will be simpler, faster, and easier all-around. Choose from Canada’s best TV wall mounts today at PrimeCables.
