This is a cable tester that can help you when you have many cables lying around and you wand to know which cables are good for CHARGING and which cables are good for DATA SYNC. By using this device you can also see if one of your cables has an interrupted wire inside. It is very important to know what type of cable you have as a consumer also because many phones today use the SYNC functionality of the cable to exchange information with their charge and enable quick charging protocols. Example : Samsung note 9 will charge in 1h30min using a SYNC cable but will charge in aprox 4h using a CHARGE ONLY cable.
As a maker I have tons of cable around me and with every device that arrives in lab I get even more cables. Because I not keeping my table organized (as I should :-) ), I always grab the cable that is closest to my hand put it in use. In many situations, I have had problems as the cables were either Charge ONLY or they were poor quality and the wires inside were interrupted. This led me to build my own simple and efficient cable tester for any USB 2.0 cable that can roam my desk.
Aside from the shape that I have chose to make it fit in the modern environment as a fancy keyring, my cable tester is simple but effective. You don't need to understand volts, amps, watts nor any other electronics to read it . Because it is powered by a coin cell battery (CR2032) you can use it anywhere and you don't need another power source to get it going.
*** Please buy and fit a CR2032 battery in the battery holder on the back.
Scenario 1 - Test if cable has interrupted wires
Scenario 2 - Test what type of cable you have CHARGE ONLY or SYNC
I will ship to you a fully assembled and tested USB cable tester as the one in the pictures. The BATTERY IS NOT INCLUDED but it is a very common form factor. ( CR2032 battery)
