Charging Cable For ZTE and Huawei Phones

It took me a long time to find this cable, so maybe others with a ZTE or Huawei phone might find this

information useful. The problem is that these phones are very picky about the chargers you can use with them. I've been building battery packs and about 3/4 of them do not charge my ZTE Engage smartphone ... until now.

Fast Charge Micro-USB High Speed Charging Cable

With this cable, I can now charge my phone from any USB battery pack or charger that gives 5V to the USB port, and I don't have to worry if my phone will like the charger or not!

This was a very annoying issue for me, and nobody seems to know jack squat about what exactly these phones expect from the USB cable that most chargers don't have. Obviously it has something to do with power to the data pins, but at least know I have a good clue, and a cable that lets me use the chargers I want, like my Waka Waka lantern/charger.

From talking to a few experts, this cable most likely just shorts out the data pins using the DCP (Dedicated Charging Port) spec.

  1. I've a smartphone and tablet from the last 3 years and I've used this with my careful mind. but, this portable charger writing concept is very helpful to me like http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00C40OG22/. That can help us to supply high quality smartphone USB charger.
