Maybe I got a bad batch or two?

I came upon the cord through a website (http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-micro-usb-cable/) seeing as it was the 1 on it's ratings.
Some details before the cord review:
I have a Google Nexus 6 (2014) from AT&T that supports quick charging.
I had to purchase a new cord because the factory cord that comes with the phone was damaged because someone placed a chair on top of the cord and sat on it causing the internal wiring to be fried.
I purchased two of these because I needed one for my wall adapter and to leave one inside my car.
This cable is greatly exceeded my expectations for several reasons. First of all the overall quality of the cord looks and feels nice. When I look at the cord, I think to myself, "This cord is going to last me a while for sure!" Second the cord is very compatible with QuickCharging devices and will deliver all the electricity (sorry don't know the correct term haha) it receives from any wall adapter. The cord is nice and thick which makes it feel very secure and less likely to break in my opinion compared to other cords.
However, there are small, very insignificant problems depending on the person, to the cord. Since the cord is thick, it is a little on the stiff side and can cause the micro usb to disconnect from the phone especially since the ferrite core is close to it. Coiling isn't very effective since it doesn't stay compact but honestly, that's a good thing because you're less likely to have it break from being folded in half. Also the Micro-USB connector for the phone is a little bulky for my taste and you will have difficulty connecting the cord if your phone case slot is small. I had to switch to a different phone case.
Overall like I mentioned before, the cord is great and cheap! I would recommend all my friends to this cord.
Thickness of Cord
CONS: Micro-USB is a little big for some phone cases
Cord is a little stiff (look at review for more info)
PROS: Got this because a 1.5 ft is too short. I ordered several of these, and one to carry around with me for transferring data between computer and devices and also for charging.
Build quality is excellent and the connectors and cable feel solid and well protected.
One minor thing to keep in mind is that the cable is a little thicker than usual so it may not fit on cable management hooks designed for thinner cables.
PROS: This cable is the most robust (toughest), and fastest charging cable we have ever used! It is even better than the Samsung branded cords we have used. The price is better than all the other heavy duty cords we have tried too.
CONS: The 3ft length is a little short for our applications, so we are going to try the 10 foot version next.
Could you please advise if that is possible to delivered these cables to specific address in Belgium (i am basically asking if there is any chance that other delivery service except postal service is possible) ?
Thank you in advance.
