Scosche ships its first USB-C to Lightning Power Delivery cable

Scosche is shipping its first MFI-certified USB-C to Lightning Power Delivery cables. These cables, which cost about $25, connect and sync Apple Lightning devices with USB-C enabled devices such as: laptops, tablets, hard drives, smartphones, digital cameras and more. 

The company is introducing an entire family of USB-C → Lightning Power Delivery cables, of which this durable Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) version (shown above) is now available. Braided versions in four foot and 10 foot lengths will be available by the the end of the month. According to the folks at Scoshe, the cables deliver a number of benefits to Apple device users:

  • When used with a Scosche USB-C Power Delivery (PD) charger, they charge Lightning devices like iPhones and iPads, at 3X the rate of a regular charger and cable and supports Apple Fast Charge. 

  • They deliver both data and power. 

  • The USB-C connector is reversible – there is no “upside down.”

  • USB-C PD uses a universal power delivery system so there’s no concern about wattage levels. If a device doesn’t support PD, the charger and cable will default to what the phone can safely support. 

  • The USB-C PD specification supports scalable power and performance which means it’s backwards compatible and future-proof.
