Cables started failing after 2 months of use

I bought 3 of these cables for use in cars to eliminate any interference on the radio when charging my devices. Within a month the micro-usb end on one cable would not make reliable contact with my phones and within 3 months all three cables are completely unreliable. In the same monoprice order I purchased 4 other types of micro-usb cables that see more use than these and are still rock solid.

Hi Ed,

Thank you for your review on PID 8640. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenient experience faced with these micro USB cables. I see that you already have an RMA in place for replacements. A returns department representative will contact you by email with the RMA number and instructions to follow. Should you experience any problems with the new cables, please don't hesitate to contact us as we do cover our cables with a lifetime warranty. For now, I will submit a complaint on this cable so our product team can look into this matter further. Sorry again for any trouble this may have caused and please let me know if there is anything that I can assist you with!

Excellent cable

Pros: Charges quick, unlike other aftermarket cables. Data transfer not an issue. Sturdy construction.

Cons: Cable is thick, but I guess that's why you're buying this cable, for a larger gauge.

Charge speed is what I bought this cable for and it delivers. Charges my phone in 1.5 hrs compared to a few hours with other aftermarket cables (using same charger).

Exactly what I wanted

Pros: Nice thick cord feels solid, allows full-speed charging of devices, especially useful for QuickCharge compatible devices. Doesn't break down as fast as many other cords.

Cons: Need to trim the head just a shade so that it connects securely to my phone (both my current and my previous one) when it's in its case. It's easy to cut with a utility knife though I just take the edge down a bit.

A great cable that lasts. I don't know how people chew through ends as fast as they do mine seem to last a year or so but the ones I give to people sometimes only last a few weeks. Anyway, this is the cord to get if you want to charge your devices from less than 3' away from the power source. I use this in the car and my girlfriend has her power adapter plugged in on her desk top, both are locations where a long cord is a pain. 3' is too short to reach into the back seat if you need to charge anything back there, but for the driver and the front passenger it's perfect.
