Magnetic Cables, the Pros and Cons
This magnetic charging cable review summarizes this cable’s pros and cons and my final recommendation during my time with it.
Full Disclosure: Note that this review is not seen by anyone before it is published or sponsored by the TOPK company. The points expressed here are entirely my honest thoughts.
TOPK Magnetic Charging Cable Pros (The Good)
What I liked during my testing of these magnetic cables are as follows:
- One-hand operation
- Led light
- Strong Magnets
- Dust Proof Interface
- Great design
1. One-hand operation
You can use one hand to operate the charging cable when you want to charge your phone. This may come in handy, especially when driving or busy on another routine activity during the day.
2. Led light

The led light makes it easy to find the USB cable. This can be particularly important, especially in the dark.
3. Strong Magnets
The magnets used to get the job done work well. They easily adhere to each other when charging your device.
4. Dust-Proof Interface
The magnetic tip blocks dust or particles from entering the charging port. This is because the tip is designed to stay in the port… This is a nifty feature, especially for long-term use
5. Great Design
The braided cable design is particularly remarkable. It will surely last. At least, cheap rubber or plastic was not used to design these magnetic cables. The length of the cables ones used in this review is two meters. That length is undoubtedly good enough to charge your devices even when you are far from a charging inlet.
The TOPK USB magnetic cables are very affordable. I bought 2 cables and 2 tips for some of my devices that only support Micro USB at $7. All cables and accessories were purchased from the TOPK official China store on Aliexpress to guarantee genuine products.
TOPK USB Magnetic Charging Cable Cons (The Bad)
What I disliked during my testing of these magnetic cables are as follows:
- Charging power is not as advertised
- Does not support fast charging
- Does not support data transfer
- Does not support Android Auto
- Failed to charge virtually all of my devices
1. Charging power is not as advertised
2. Does not support fast charging
3. Does not support data transfer
4. Does not support Android Auto or Apple Car Play
5. Failed to charge virtually all of my devices
Conclusion: Do I Recommend purchase of these Magnetic USB Charging Cables?
Well, the answer is No, I do not recommend you buy these magnetic cables. Though the wires appear to provide outstanding and flexible features at less than $10, they simply aren’t good enough and do not live up to their expectations.
Perhaps I may get another cable or so to review in the future. If the outcome is good, then I’d do a quick update.
