With one of the best 2-in-1 USB cables in hand, you can charge a wider range of phones, tablets, and other devices without having to swap out cables constantly. These can't charge multiple devices at once, like a USB-C hub, but they make it easier to keep just one cable to recharge all of your myriad devices with different power needs. If you want a USB cable that does it all, we have found the best 2-in-1 USB cables that money can buy.

What's our favorite cable?

When it comes to finding the best 2-in-1 USB cables, the choices can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, Nomad makes this easier with its Universal Cable (opens in new tab) as it not only sports an end with USB-C and MicroUSB, but the other end includes an attachment for the standard USB-A port. Plus, this has been 10K Mil-Spec tested for durability and sports a max output of 60W for quick charging capabilities.

The most interesting pick of the lot has to be the JianHan Magnetic Charger (opens in new tab). In addition to getting a braided cable, you have magnetic tips that can be swapped out based on whichever device you are using. Or, you could leave them in the devices that you need, providing some dust protection, and just move the cable between devices.

One of the most versatile cables is actually a 2-pack from GREATLINK (opens in new tab), as the company provides a regular straight cable and a coiled cable. The coiled cable makes it possible for you to keep your device close without worrying about getting tangled up accidentally. Meanwhile, the straight cable does just what you would expect, and versatility is the name of the game, so it works perfectly.

If none of our best 2-in-1 USB cables picks fits your needs, you may need one of the best 3-in-1 USB cables instead. Otherwise, you may want to invest in one of the best wireless chargers that rely on just one USB-C cable to charge all your compatible devices, or ditch cables entirely and charge on the go with one of the best Qi wireless portable chargers.
