It’s not uncommon to see a huge criss-cross of wires running in an office or even in homes these days. We have so many devices that need charging or syncing and since most devices these days are rechargeable (and not reliant on batteries), a veritable host of cords and cables come with the devices. If a family of four has two TVs, a home desktop computer, laptops and cell phones for each member of the family, and other accessories that go with the TV’s, computers, and cell phone (like gaming systems, sound systems, etc.,) the amount of cables and cords present in the computer can be overwhelming at times. And losing an important cable or cord can be a nightmare until you find a replacement. Buying bulk USB cables or HDMI cables, for example, can be a great way to make sure you have the charging or syncing devices you need on hand to let your electronics run properly.
Why Should I Buy Bulk USB Cables or HDMI Cables?
Most cell phone accessories these days require a USB cable and cell phones and other devices are generally hooked up to a computer via a USB cable. If your family all owns the same phone or type of device, it might be worth it to just buy bulk USB cables and have them on hand, in case they get too old and stop working or in case someone’s USB cable goes missing. HDMI cables are becoming more and more popular for homes to have, since they can be used with a variety of devices and allow users to view games, TV shows, movies, and more on a larger screen (like the TV). If you have multiple TV’s in your home, buying bulk HDMI cables can save you the hassle of transferring the HDMI cable from device to device; you can simply leave an HDMI cable with each device.
What Is an HDMI Cable and What Should I Know?
An HDMI cable lets audio/video be streamed between audio and video sources by only using one cable. For example, you can stream a TV show from your computer to your TV so that the whole family can watch. Video games are often hooked into the TV using HDMI cables as well. They can handle standard, enhanced, or high-definition video and audio coming through multiple channels. There are two major categories of HDMI cables — HDMI standard cables and highspeed HDMI cables. These categories are broken down even further. HDMI Standard has three distinct types of cables: regular HDMI Standard, HDMI Standard with Ethernet, and HDM Standard Automotive. And there are two different types of highspeed HDMI cables — the standard HDMI High Speed and HDMI High Speed with Ethernet.
Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that the length of your cable will change the audio or video quality. Whether you have a 100 ft HDMI cable or a 25 ft HDMI cable, the audio and video quality will stay the same. If you do need a cable that’s over 100 feet, get a good quality HDMI cable that’s specifically designed to cover that distance. Otherwise, don’t worry about the length! Additionally, don’t listen to anyone who tells you that HDMI cables cost over $50. There are other ways to find cheaper HDMI cables that are still good quality.
What Can I Use USB Cables For?
USB cables are used to connect computers to other devices like cameras, tablets, printers, phones, scanners, etc. We tend to see them most often as phone chargers. USB stands for “universal serial bus” and was invented to standardize how other devices connected to a computer in the mid-1990s. Today, it’s replaced many other interfaces that used to help connect those devices to computers, because of its simplicity and efficiency. Since they’re so common and can be used with so many different devices, buying bulk USB cables isn’t a bad idea at all!
Given our dependence on our many devices, it’s good to have the cables you need on hand, should one break or be lost. Bulk USB cables can be one great way to ensure this!
