5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a competent USB charging cable
It really is difficult to find USB cables that really will charge at 2A (the minimum rate at which most modern phones/tablets expect). While cheaper cables will work, the charging cycle is often considerably longer than when using the original cable: this is often due to two reasons:

1. the cable is of inferior size/quality; the AWG rating really does make a...

1.0 out of 5 stars Fragile
Poorly designed. Managed to bend plug after one day, as metal plug doesn't extend far enough into the plastic body. Does charge devices fast though.

Does what it should. Nothing else to say about it if you are looking for a charging cable for a tablet or smartphone.

Works well, thicker cable, better at charging than thin cables, ideal when you need to fast charge your tablet or phone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit my Galaxy Ace phone, 16 May 2014

This review is from: PortaPow Specialised Fast Charging Micro USB Cable for Blackberry, Xperia, HTC One, Google Nexus, Other Fast Charging Devices (Accessory)
It fits my Nexus 7 and works fine. It doesn't fit what appears to be an identical socket on my Galaxy Ace phone (though it might if I forced it, which I'm reluctant to do). I'm puzzled by this. Are there two slightly different standards for this connector ?

3.0 out of 5 stars Charges well but won't stay put!, 15 May 2014

Initially very pleased with these cables as they are the first I've found that are a reasonable length and manage to charge at a reasonable speed, unfortunately (as others have found) they didn't last. It seems that the retaining clips and the metal shell of the plug are seperate and only the plastic body of the plug connects them - the plastic is quite 'rubbery' and this means that the whole assembly flexes and the clips don't then protude from the shell and the plug simply falls out.

I ended up buying some replacement micro USB plugs from a electronics supplier, removing the micro USB plugs provided and soldering the new ones on - works nicely now but very fiddly (and I was an Electronics Engineer) and not something I'd recommend and not something that should be needed!!! I did 'disect' one of the original plugs and confirmed how the clips and shell are seperate items only held together by the rubbery plastic shell.

Cable works very well with my Nexus 7 ( 2012 version), although a different brand didn't, so rather pleased. Can not comment on longevity.

Compared to a dual usb data/charging cable there is no doubt that cable does a much better job even when plugged onto a pc
