About Cables

Electronic gadgets, tool, devices, and the electricity itself is by far the best component created by us humans. And we all know that each device has a specific purpose, that they fulfil using their well-built structure. The structure, of course, has several subcomponents that help the device function properly. And one such pivotal component is the ‘cables’. Of course, you know what cables are. But, are you smart enough to differentiate between the cables for internet and the best Ethernet cable? Well, probably you are, but there are a few facets of these wires that you ought to know. In this article, we cover the various types of wires and a few quick tips on how to buy cables online in UAE. So read on!

We do not give them any thought, but they’re still everywhere. Why? Well, it’s clear – the importance of these wires is hidden. While we don’t actually see them, these wires serve us many of our daily needs. For instance, our homes involve a complex structure of cabling for bringing us data signals, electricity, etc. In fact, not just our homes, places like hospitals, schools, offices, even amusement parks have various types of wires that serve a different purpose. With this, one thing is for sure that you’re going to be overwhelmed with the sheer variety of wires on the market today. That said, let’s a detailed look at a few of them in the next section.

The various types of cables to buy for different purposes

Generally, you use these wires to connect two or more devices to transfer electrical signals or power from one device to another. However, each cable type has a purpose, and thus you must tailor them for these purposes. Moreover, they differ physically too. Some come in thick insulation, while others are thin and long. Therefore, it’s important to understand the various cable types if you want to pick the right ones for connecting various devices at your place. And this is important, as any wrong connectors and cables will spoil the device they’re attached to. So without much ado, let’s take a look at the various wire options that you can buy.

The USB cables

Probably one of the greatest inventions of today is the Universal Serial Bus, or as we know them – the USB. This wire allows you to compile, store and access various forms of data easily at anytime and anywhere. However, for this to happen, they must be compatible with the device you’re planning to connect them. That said, USB cables, on the other hand, are wires that enable you to gather, transfer, and store data from one device to another. You usually connect these USB wires to peripheral devices like mobile phones, cameras, camcorders and printers/scanners.

The HDMI cables

We’re solidly in the age of 4K and 8K era. Even the budget TVs boast of high resolutions. This is a lot of data to send from your media streamer or PC. You’re certainly going to need a cable for it – precisely the HDMI. HDMI is the established standard wire for transferring both audio and video from an entertainment device to a TV over one cable. In fact, best 4K HDMI cable is the most popular and finest way to hook up your DVD, Blu-ray, and Ultra HD streaming devices, or players. In short, if you’re hooking up anything to your TV that’s less than a decade old, then HDMI cables are the way to do it.

The fibre optic cables 

Fibre optic cables or commonly known as optical fibres are a type of Ethernet cables. They consist of one or more optic fibres that transmit data. It has a very similar design as that of an ordinary electrical cable. However, this here is used for carrying light pulses. Besides, the optical fibre’s price is much higher than that of the copper ones. Since the optical fibres use light pulses, they support long-distance telecommunication and high-speed data transmission. Usually, these cables can run at a speed of 10 GBPS and even 100 GBPS. Thus, you can use them for internet, TV, and telephone.

The SATA cables

If you’ve owned a laptop or PC in the past decade and a half, then you’ve probably also bought a SerialATA (SATA) compatible piece of hardware. Whether you have an HDD, a solid-state drive (SDD), or an optical drive, almost all of them use SATA until recently. So, what exactly is SATA? In short, it’s how almost everything related to storage connects to your motherboard. But, that’s not always the case. There are some newer standards available today for high-speed drivers. But, alongside the PCIe and NVMe, SATA cables are still significant players, especially when it comes to HHDs and SDDs.

The VGA cables

The video graphics array or the VGA cable is a type of computer wire that caries video data from the CPU to the monitor. In fact, a complete VGA cable comprises of a cable and connector at each end. And the connectors typically tend to be blue. You attach one end of the cable to the port in the graphics card on the computer’s motherboard. While you connect the other end to the port in the display device. So, when your computer runs, the video card transmits video display signals via the VGA wire. Moreover, they’re available in different types.

Tips on how to buy the best Cables online

We all own different types of cables. This could be to charge your smartphone, transfer files, connect displays, and many more. Quite often, when buying cables, we go online and simply pick any cable that looks aesthetically pleasing. We tend to overlook the other vital factors to consider. Well, this should no longer be the case once you’re done reading this section. Below we’ve compiled a few quick tips that’ll come in handy when you’re out buying the best iPhone charger cable or the cheapest cable for TV.
  • Know the purpose– What you intend to use the cable for determines its size, shape, aesthetics, and length. If you intend to use them for only charging your smartphones, then lookout for a USB data transfer cable. However, if you wish to view high-quality video or images on your TV, then you need to pick an HDMI cable. This means you should always know the purpose of the wires before you start your online search.
  • Go for popular brands– Several manufacturers today come up with innovative wires that help you carry out the different job. But, you should make sure that you buy them from reputable brands, as popular brands ensure product quality. Some of the popular names in the field include Apple, Samsung, Promate, Microsoft, Nintendo, Belkin, LG, and Monoprice. Do not ever go for substandard quality products, as this may cause electrical hazards.
  • Keep an eye on the build– Different wires come with different designs and built. Each has a specific purpose that serves right for various works. For instance, optic fibres have different design, style and function when compared to the copper models. The optical fibres usually transfer light pulses, and therefore you can use them for high-speed connections. However, copper models are good conductors, hence best for electrical connections.
  • Check outthe length – The length of the cables is another property to look at before picking your next. Sure, a long wire comes in handy if you have your socket placed far away from your bedside, work desk, or couch. A long cable gives you the luxury of using your device irrespective of the distance. However, the long wires aren’t suitable at all occasions. In fact, they might tangle and become a menace. Therefore, see which device requires a long or short wire, and make a wise decision.
  • Look out for the thickness– The wires usually come in different thickness. Hence, it best to pick one that suits your needs. It’s ideal to choose thick cables. This is because the cables with thick exteriors have thicker wires within them. These thick cables allow more current to pass through them and help in faster data transfer too. Moreover, the thicker wires have more resistant to heat, unlike the thin ones that burn during heavy loads.
  • Consider the cost– The price of the cables is another important factor to consider while buying them online. You’ll find both cheap cable options as well as expensive ones. Therefore, it’s best to set aside a budget for yourself and then start your search online. This way you’ll curb spending unnecessarily. You could also buy a cable for sale online in UAE that helps you secure a good quality wire without having to spend too much.
Now that you know some major considerations, you should no longer have trouble choosing your perfect cables. However, be sure to carefully assess your components before you make the final call on a wire. Check out the pros and cons of the product; you could also take a look at the various customer reviews online before you buy one. It helps give you an idea about the product performance.
