I just received my cord and it's not working!??
Sometimes we see some cords that are fresh out of manufacturing that are behaving with a bit of stubbornness. You may need to plug in and unplug the USB-A side (the side that goes in your power brick) a couple times in both directions. We do not see this behavior with the device side of the cord (the side that goes into your device). Remember to never force your cord into your device or your power brick. If your cord is not inserting into your device (especially micro usb) and the power brick with little resistance, be sure to completely remove the cord, flip it around, and try again. You may need to repeat this a few times to exercise the pins (or contacts) on the USB-A side.
What type of power brick is needed for Fast Charge?
Your power brick should have a label with its power output on it. The power output must be 5v (5 volts) 2.1A (2.1 amps) in order to get a Fast Charge. Do not exceed 5v 2.1A using your Cords of Steel 2n1 charging cord. Do not exceed 5v 2.4A using your Cords of Steel Type-C charging cord.
Does the 2in1 charging cord charge USB Type C?
No, you will need the USB Type-C charging cord for any USB C devices.
My Apple device is showing accessory not supported, what do I do?
Make sure your Apple is fully charged. Do not have your Cords Of Steel charging cord plugged into your Apple when performing updates. Once you have verified your device has 75% charge or more, unplug your Cords Of Steel charging cord, then check to see if there is an update that needs to be done on your device. If so, please allow the update to fully complete before trying the cord again. If no update is needed, try rebooting the device (with your charging cord unplugged from device) and try the cord again. Last thing to check is if your power brick is working properly. Please try a different power brick and make sure to test the USB-A side that plugs into power brick by plugging the cord in both ways making sure the USB-A is firmly pressed in the power brick each way. **UPDATE** Feb 5, 2019 Apple Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Erroneous 'This Accessory May Not Be Supported' Alerts.
