I am looking at getting new short cables for my 2018 Premier Volt. Is the USB port 2.0 or 3.0?

it should be 2.0 BUT the 3.0 cables are backward compatable for the most part.

2.0 device sockets limit charging to 1/2 amp where a 3.0 device can be 1 amp + (but different 2.0/3.0 cable will have same current)

BUT the data rate is faster on 3.0 cable so I have replaced mine but over kill on slower devices

You may see a blue plastic part for 3.0 inside the plug where 2.0 is white.

Thanks. The cable I was looking at was 2.0 so that should be fine.

Actually with regards to the little plastic insert: USB 1.0 is white, USB 2.0 is black, and USB 3.0 is blue!

Thanks for the correction-- that's what I get for grabbing an Apple USB cable to check :)
