Tips: How to keep and maintain the charging cable

The charging cable produced by the regular manufacturers are usually subject to the professional design and test to guarantee the durability and safety. However, the incorrect use will cause damage to the charging cable or reduce its service life. What should be noted about the use of charging cable?

  • Correct way of inserting and plugging: as the structure of the charging interface is tiny, the excessive force or skew angle in inserting and plugging may cause damage to the charger or interface. The correct way is to hold the end of the connector stably and insert it without dragging the cable.
  • Keep away from heat: the charging cable is usually made of metal and various insulating or protective materials, such as plastic and textile, and also includes some fine electronic components. When used at high temperatures, it is easy to cause material aging or direct damage to the cable.
  •  Daily cleaning and maintenance: the pollutants such as juice or oil stains attached to the material surface for a long time, are easy to corrode or cause aging to the material. Please use a wet and soft cloth or a non-alcoholic wet towel to clean the charger. No organic solvents like alcohol are allowed for cleaning.
