Do not purchase: This cable will quickly stop to work

Pros: None, since it won't work after a few hours of usage.

Cons: The micro-USB connector on this cable is very cheap and will quickly stop working.

I purchased a handful of those micro-usb cables on DX, but most of them didn't work right out of the box. From DX, those things are to be expected, so I decided to spend a little more and purchase another batch of micro-USB cables from Monoprice. I have purchased thousands of cables from Monoprice (mostly network, but also RCA, USB, stereo, HDMI, etc.) and have been mostly satisfied, especially for the price.

However, THIS USB Cable is a NO GO. First, they had the exact same "plastic housing" molding on the micro-usb side of the cable as the ones I got from DX. I also got the same results, after only a few days, all/most of my cable STOPPED working. I'd connect my cell phone, and it wouldn't be fully charged the next morning. Investigating a little more, I'd say that the connector is designed a little bit too thin, and it means that quite often all the pins don't connect properly with the phone's connector. More importantly, over time (not that much), the connector becomes loose, and it will stop working. This has happened to ALL of the micro-usb cables I purchased at Monoprice. It has happened to NONE of the "original cables" that I received with my Nexus, Samsung, LG, Kobo devices. This is clearly a matter of quality of the product.

Don't be cheap, don't purchase this product in its current form, it WILL fait.

Hi Luigi,

My apologies for the experience you have faced with our Micro USB cables. I will pass this along to our product team for further review. For now, if you are still within the 30-day return period, I can assist you in setting up a refund. Or, if outside the return period, I can setup the RMA for replacements instead. Obtaining the replacements would be of no additional cost to you as we will cover shipping. If you would like to proceed, please provide the order numbers for the cables along with your preference on returning or replacing the cables. Sorry again for all the trouble and thank you for your feedback.

Great cable

Pros: Sturdy cable
Charges phone quickly
Inexpensive shipping

I bought 3 of these cables because I had a cable that was falling apart and the cable in my car was super slow in charging. I thought it was because my car is old and the cigarette lighter had a lower voltage output - or whatever it's called. :)

The new cable works great in my car. My phone charges very quickly. The cables feel very sturdy and you can't beat the price. Plus, the cable replacement guarantee is a bonus.

cable falls out

Tried on three different devices. One seemed to hold ok at first. With the other two devices, the cable fell out immediately. Other reviews have said the same thing. These cables need to be improved to work with the latest prominent devices. Monoprice offered free RMA which is good but would not offer free shipping on my replacement order. :-(

It's a cable...

Pros: Works. Cheap enough to buy a bunch and have them at home, at work, in the car, in your bag, etc.

Cons: Micro-B end is kinda large, and had to be shaved down to fit with some phone cases

It's a cable. It works. What more is there to say? Cheap enough to buy a bunch and keep them everywhere. I found the micro-B end is a little large and had to be shaved down a little to fit with a phone in a case.
