Q: What type of cord do I need to charge my Samsung S8 with the PowerPack 10K? Where can I purchase the correct cord?
The cord that connects the PowerPack 10K to your Samsung Galaxy S8 is called a USB-C to USB-A cable (sometimes, it is also referred to as USB-C to USB cable). ZMI makes TPE (a type of rubbery plastics that's also used to make your stock phone cord) and braided cords.

To choose among the different cord variations, there are four factors to consider:
1) Length of the cord. It depends on what you'll use the cord for.
2) The material used for the protective sleeve on the cord (TPE vs. braided).
3) Color preference.
You can use the same cord for Galaxy S8 to recharge the battery pack. Please note that the middle port on the battery pack is of the same type as the charging port on your Galaxy S8.
Note: the above information is also applicable with other Samsung Galaxy phones: S10, S10 Plus, S10e, S9, S9 Plus, and S8 Plus.
