HTC 10 USB Type-C Cable

HTC 10 USB Type-C Cable

The HTC 10 features a brand new charging port on the bottom unlike any other HTC smartphone. Rather than the old traditional micro-USB port on bottom, it features a new USB Type-C port. It's reversible and can be plugged in either direction like an Apple cable, supports extremely fast charging, quick data transfer speeds, and owners can actually recharge other devices with the HTC 10 using a Type-C cable.

It's the port that will be on most smartphones, tablets and other devices in the near future, so get an extra cable for charging in other rooms or the car. All your old micro-USB cables won't work with the HTC 10.

Buy it Now for $19.99

We'd highly recommend getting quality USB Type-C cables, not cheap ones from eBay, Amazon, or gas stations.

    Why cant HTC release a Car Dock like they did for m7,m8 for this phone I spend a lot of time in my vehicle and need that charging cradle for my phone! I hate stupid universal docks, extra step involved if you want it charging. should be just plug and play.

      I totally agree. The M8 cradle was very good indeed – I tried to adapt it but it was beyond my skill level!

    If you want your Battery to stay factory fresh and last a very very long time. ONLY use the USB to charge it. Never plug in a fast charger.
    The USB uses 3+ volts and the Plug in uses over twice that for a fast charge at the expense of the battery’s life. You will notice that the battery does not heat up with the USB charger and the plug in one will cook the battery to a noticeable amount. That is killing the battery.

      Dan is confusing voltage with amperage. A USB port is always rated at 5V but most chargers use a lower voltage ~4V. It’s the amperage that gets cranked up to 2.4 or 3.0 by Quick Charge v2.0 or v3.0.

      It’s true that charging more quickly at a higher amperage will shorten the life of most batteries of all types. However, it appears that Qualcomm has designed intelligent circuitry into the Quick Charge specs to prevent that. I have not noticed any difference in the temperature of the battery or case when comparing the Quick Charge 3.0 with an older 1A charger.
