Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable (3ft) Review (Video)


I review the 3 feet Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable. This is a USB-C cable that is up to USB-C specifications with a 56k Ohm pull-up resistor which is required to denote that cable uses the legacy standard for backwards compatibility. Also this product comes with Anker's great customer support. I have been Anker's customer for years. Most of my products are good, but when I do have a problem, Anker's customer support always corrects things for me (when with-in the warranty period). This is why I am still their customer even after all these years. In the video, I also compare this cable to the Choetech USB-C to USB 2.0 cable.

Please note that any USB-C cable with USB-A plug on one end will not charge your 5V 3A devices at the maximum current. Legacy USB-A chargers go up to 5V 2.4A max. As mentioned, in my testing with my Huawei Nexus 6P, I didn't notice too big of a charging speed difference even with the lower current output.

Choetech USB-C to USB 2.0 (3.3ft) Cable Review (Video)


I review the 3.3 feet Choetech USB-C to USB-A 2.0 Cable. This is a USB-C cable that is up to USB-C specifications with a 56k Ohm pull-up resistor which is required to denote that cable uses the legacy standard for backwards compatibility. I have been with Choetech for years and all of their products has been high quality and never broke on me before (with the exception of a charger which got fried due to a DOA Anker power bank). I highly recommend Choetech products. In the video, I also compare this cable to the Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 cable.

Please note that any USB-C cable with USB-A plug on one end will not charge your 5V 3A devices at the maximum current. Legacy USB-A chargers go up to 5V 2.4A max. As mentioned, in my testing with my Huawei Nexus 6P, I didn't notice too big of a charging speed difference even with the lower current output.

Lake Chabot Regional Park - Castro Valley, CA (Part 3)

From 7/16/2016 to 7/28/2016, I hit up three separate East Bay Regional Parks here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I visited Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA, Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, CA, and Lake Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley, CA. I have an annual pass this year, so I do plan on taking more photography trips to these parks. I want to exercise and get fit so I can do a camping trip up in the Sierras here in California sometime. I've been thinking about a trip like that for a while now. Not to mention, I really need to loose some weight. Enough about me though, I am here to share the photos I took at the parks with you guys. I will be splitting the photos into several parts. I also shot video on my East Bay Park trips. You can view my vlog with the videos here. I hope you enjoy.
