Very solid cable. The cable itself is as thick, if not thicker than the cable that came with my Pixel. What this told me is that Monoprice put thought into engineering a cable that could transmit a strong electrical signal across its length and not suffer from power dropouts like a lesser cable would. After using it for a week, I can confidently say that this is the case. The cable charges my phone as strongly as the original cable and I have the added bonus of more length to maneuver with the phone while charging it.
