    3 ft. USB 2.0 male to micro male cable

    Pros: Exceptional price... the cable was well packaged and arrived in a timely fashion.

    Cons: None to date

    The cable is being used to keep my cell phone charged while driving and using Google maps. Two weeks down the road and it works well. The key is how much longevity will it have. The product looks sturdy enough to be functional for the long haul. I let you know if any problems arise.

    Not the quality I was expecting

    Pros: Durable material

    Cons: Slow charging rate
    Prong won't stay in devices securely
    Some prongs don't fit

    3 of the cables I received have been ends on them and I discarded them. They also don't stay in devices very well. The charging time is very slow and long using these cables as well. Definitely not what I was expecting.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    My apologies for the issues experienced with PID 8640. I see that five of these cables were purchased total. Just to verify, do all five cables have difficulty staying in your devices? What devices have they been tried with thus far? Also, regarding the charging time, may I ask what the power output of the charger is? This length cable should not affect the charging rate of the devices. The main factor would be the amount of power that the charger is capable of outputting. For example, if using a USB port on a computer (which can only output up to 0.5 amps), it would take a lot longer for the device to be fully charged when compared to using a 2 amp wall charger. Sorry again for the trouble and thank you for your feedback.

    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).
