It has been a while since I heard the brand Verbatim. The last time I heard about it is during the floppy disk era.
I am glad they diversified into mobile accessories.
The first product I am going to introduce is the Verbatim Sync & Charge USB-C Cable which retails for S$24.90.
Besides the Nomad USB-C Cable (1m/100W), this cable is has the next best build quality.
The outer casing of the cable is nylon braided, which gives it a tough and durable feel.
The 1m cable itself is made of pure copper wires for better efficiency since copper is a better conductor. For the latter, I am not sure you will feel any difference in the real world.
The USB-C ends are gold plated and come with an anti-fray design. Though I wish they can integrate the anti-fray design into the USB-C end itself instead of being like two separate pieces, it spoils the design.
Specifications-wise, it is as good as the build quality. I have not come across a USB3.2 Gen 2×2 cable yet, and this is my first USB-C cable with USB3.2 Gen 2×2.
Because it is USB3.2 Gen 2×2, it supports a transfer speed of up to 20 Gbps. For most USB-C cables in the market right now, you get a maximum transfer speed of 5 Gbps or 10 Gbps.
For charging, it supports USB PD charging of up to 100W and Qualcomm Quick Charge (QC) 2.0/3.0.
