I purchased two of these cables and although they appear to be quite well built, with very infrequent use both of them are now knackered. Its the connection that goes into your device that fails after a week or two. I first noticed my phone acting up as if I was quickly inserting the cable and pulling it back out. Its now got to the point where I can only make a connection when I apply a lot of force by pulling the cable over the front of the screen, otherwise it simply wont charge. Absolute garbage and a complete waste of money.

If you want a power cable that will work longer than a month buy these instead:


FRiEQ® Hi-Speed Extra Long (6 Ft/1.8m) Nylon Braided Tangle-Free USB 2.0 Micro USB Charging/Sync Cable.

I ordered this to replace a cable that I use in the car which was not fast charging which meant when my Sat Nav was being used the phone was either holding or losing battery along the way. The cable looks good and I ordered it based on some user reviews saying they were using in the same way as myself but their phone was also gaining battery percentage during use. Unfortunately this hasn't been the case for me, on first use my battery was going down when plugged in. After a 3 hour drive I arrived with almost a flat battery. Back to the cheap one I got with my car holder. its a pain due to stretching around the steering wheel but it actually charges along my journey! To save any feedback, I use a 2.1amp USB charger so it is the cable not the charger :)

I needed a longer than usual USB cable so that I could keep my netbook charged while I work and my work desk is not that close to plug point. This is just what I needed and the braded construction is fairly robust. It's already withstood being accidently run over with the vacuum cleaner a couple of times. Although you should be aware that this robust braded cover means that the cable is a little stiffer than the usual pastic coated cabels. if you want a longer cable but expect it to make tight turrns you may need some cable tie downs as it seems to want to make more gentle curves if left to its own devices.

I bought this product in October last year to replace my broken phone charger. As some previous reviewers have said the cable has now in the last couple of days become loose and will no longer stay securely in the phone to charge. When it was working it was a good product and the long length was useful but its only been 5 months and its no longer working.

I wouldn't advise buying this product, if it can't last more than 12 months at least than its not worth it

Beware. At first this feels like a really high-quality cable at an excellent price (hence the two stars, not one). But the micro-USB end of the cable has ceased to function reliably for me. I have to move it around in the Micro-USB slot to get the charging lights to come on my various devices. Unluckily I am outside the warranty period from Amazon, so I shall just have to write off this experience. Buy one at your own risk.

This is a very high quality looking and feeling usb cable. It folds away nicely and does not tangle which was a common problem I have had with previous data cables. It is also a great cable if you do not have a plug socket nearby and wish to use and charge your phone at the same time. However my main qualm with the product is charging speed. Using the usb cable that came with my Oneplus One I can go from 0% to 100% in under 2 hours, with this cable (using the same charging block) it takes almost 4. I am not sure if this is due to the charge having to travel a longer distance (2ft vs 3m). Overall the charger is handy as a secondary one if a friend is needing charge, but due to the charging speeds I cannot use i as my main cable (which is a shame as it looks and feels fantastic).

This is a very well made, Premium charger. I was so fed up of chargers either getting a loose wire in the middle (braided or un-braided) and/or having it sag by where you attach the cable to a plug. I desperately needed a new one and i came upon this cable and I have to say in all honesty it is Brilliant, it is the best cable i have ever come across and used so Thankyou aLLreli I am suitably impressed which is difficult to achieve lol xxx

Deceiving good quality. It's a shame that it does not and has never worked. Bought it to charge my ps4 controller and it is barely able to keep it on let alone charge it. Took 12 hours to charge my galaxy s5. Absolutely garbage.

Thought this was a lovely product, the corded cake certainly never got tangled and it seemed to work pretty well... But then the micro end came loose and it started failing to charge at all... Not an issue I've ever had with other cables. Chucked it in the end.

The is a great cable. It looks fantastic, feels top quality, and it charges by mobile phone at full speed (AC charging) rather than the slower USB charging that some cables are only capable of offering.

I'd buy these again.
