FAQ



WHAT IS WIRE GAUGE?

Wire gauge is a measurement of wire diameter (more specifically its wire cross-section). This determines that amount of electric current a wire can safely carry, as well as its electrical resistance and weight.  All Walkntalk products have 24 - 28 wire gauge which results in high quality.

WHAT IS MFI CERTIFICATION?

Apple Inc.'s MFi Program, referring to "Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad", is a licensing program for developers of hardware and software peripherals that work with Apple's iPod, iPad and iPhone. The name is a shortened version of the long-form Made for iPod, the original program that ultimately became MFi.

The MFi program covers various device connectors including the headphone jack, the original dock connector and the newer Lightning connector, as well as AirPlay support. Companies joining the MFi program and passing certification tests are able to display certain MFi-related logos on their product packaging, like the "Made for iPod" badge.

Walkntalk MFi products all go through Apple's strict auditing processes to ensure only the highest quality products are manufactured.

WHAT IS BLUETOOTH?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength UHF radio wave in the ISM band from 2.4 to 2.485 GHz) From fixed and mobile devices and building personal area networks (PANs). If two devices want to talk, they pick a channel randomly and, if that's already taken, randomly switch to one of the others (a technique is known as spread-spectrum frequency hopping). To minimize the risks of interference from other electrical appliances (and also to improve security), pairs of devices constantly shift the frequency they're using—thousands of times a second. 

WHAT IS A MAH?

A milliampere-hour (mAh) is 1000th of an ampere-hour (Ah). Both measures are commonly used to describe the energy charge that a battery will hold and how long a device will run before the battery needs recharging.

On average a modern smartphone consumes 2000 mAh for a full battery charge.

WHY WOULD I BUY A 2 AMP CHARGER OVER A 1 AMP CHARGER?

There is an assumption that all chargers are created equal this is not the case. A phone will draw between 1 – 1.3 AMP for a charge where a tablet will require 2 AMP to charge. The device itself dictates to the charger what amount of power it needs to draw. If you only have a 1 AMP charger your tablet will charge but at a very slow rate as it is not getting the power it really needs.

Micro USB connector 

 

 

Micro USB is a miniaturized version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface developed for connecting compact and mobile devices such as smartphones, MP3 players, GPS devices, photo printers and digital cameras.

Many electronics like wireless headphones, portable speakers, and other gadgets still use Micro-USB to charge.

Lightning Connectors 

Apple’s proprietary connector for the iPhone, iPad, AirPods, and more. It’s a similar size to USB-C and comes standard on Apple devices released since September 2012. Older Apple devices use the much larger 30-pin proprietary connector.

Apple devices released since September 2012

USB-C Connector 

The newest USB standard, this is a reversible cable that promises higher transfer rates and more power than previous USB types. It’s also capable of juggling multiple functions. 

USB-C is an emerging standard that has lots of promise. It’s smaller, reversible, and fast. USB-C can both receive and provide a lot more power than previous versions of USB. In fact, Apple’s MacBook line only has a single USB-C port, with the new MacBook Pros packing several-C ports.

Aside from data transfer, USB-C can also power devices, output display to a monitor, and more. Unlike USB-A, cables with USB-C connectors on both ends are standard and allow full utilization of its powers. However, USB-C to USB-A cables are also common, allowing for compatibility with older devices.

New laptops and smartphones, including the MacBook, Pixel phones, and Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Above.

HDMI Cable Connector HDMI is a proprietary audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from an HDMI-compliant source device, such as a display controller, to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. Monitors, TVs and Gaming Consoles.
