You’re not a decent Xiaomi fan if you don’t own at least this small piece of Chinese technology – well OK, I’m just joking. It seems that Xiaomi launched another piece of beauty… a rather simple Type-C data cable (flat line) that costs a mere 2.5$.
As you can all figure out, this Xiaomi Type-C Data Cable enables data sharing and charging between a laptop and a smartphone, but it also supports Quick Charging (if you have the necessary equipment of course). The new data cable by Xiaomi relies on the flat line design instead of traditional circular one, it’s 1.2 meters long and quite impossible to tangle up.
Underneath the plastic casing, we can find four pure copper wires. Each copper wire is surrounded with nylon to prevent bending of the wire. Thus, it’s an anti-bending Type-C cable. The two sides copper wires are thicker when compared to the middle two as they are used for the charging procedure, whereas the other two in the center are used for data transferring for speeds up to 480MB/s.
According to Xiaomi the Data Cable is QC 2.0 compatible, supporting 5V / 2.1A fast charge, and you will soon find it available in different colors: Orange, Blue, Gray.
We have no information yet on where to buy this product, but we bet that it will soon be available online from Mi.com and other stores in the coming days.
