REVIEW – Let’s face it, USB cables aren’t exactly exciting to write about or read about. But sometimes a cable can be worth the effort for me to write about it and for you to read about it. Let’s see if the Moshi 3-in-1 universal charging cable ticks both of those boxes.
What is it?
The Moshi 3-in-1 universal charging cable is a USB charging cable that offers a Lightning connector for Apple device fans, a USB-C connector, and a micro USB connector all in one cable.
- Apple MFi-certified
- Supports power for iOS devices up to 12 W (5 V/2.4 A)
- Supports USB 2.0 data transfer speeds up to 480 Mbps
- Supports power for USB-C devices up to 3 A

Design and features
First of all, the cable has one of my favorite features when it comes to high-quality cables – a braided cover. The black Ballistic nylon braiding not only looks cool, but it prevents the cable from getting tangled which is always a good thing.
The cable also has a Velcro wrap that you can use to keep it neat and tidy when the cable isn’t being used.
The Moshi 3-in-1 Universal Charging Cable has a length of 37 inches from end to end.
The default end of the cable is a micro USB connector but tied to the cable are two adapters that turn the cable into a Lightning cable or a USB-C cable.
When you want to use the cable with your Apple devices, put the Lightning adapter at the end and snap unused adapters into the inline clip.
When you’re ready to use it as USB-C or micro USB cable, replace the Lightning adapter with the USB-C adapter or remove the adapter entirely to use it as a micro USB cable. Easy right?
What I like
- One cable for 3 device types
- Nylon braided covering
- 3 year warranty
What needs to be improved
There isn’t a whole lot that one can say about a USB cable, but as far as cables go, the Moshi 3-in-1 Universal Charging cable does have some nice features going for it from the nylon braided exterior to the ability to be used with 3 different connector styles. The only downside to this cable is that it’s a little pricy. But if the price doesn’t scare you away, this cable is warrantied for 3 years so it’s been made to stand the test of time.
