PROS: works well with my fast charger
PROS: Cable feels quality and doesn't bend too much too easily.
Connectors are solid as is jacketing behind the connector.
CONS: None that I've found thus far.
My last monoprice micro USB cable was a real heavy gauge cable with a ferrite core. The micro USB plug wore out over the span of a year and I had to plug it in "just right" in order for it to charge my devices. I'm hoping this new design doesn't wear out quite so quickly.
These fit the bill as the amperage is identical to the 2 OEM cables I have for my Samsung devices.
PROS: Works great
PROS: It charges my Nexus 7 with the same speed as OEM 3ft Asus cable.
This cable is thin and flexible.
CONS: Micro-B Type connector could be a little longer, it is not as secure on my Nexus 7 as OEM
PROS: Long, Perfect Fitment, Allows fast charge
CONS: None so far
The Galaxy Charging current app reports that the original Samsung cable provides an average amperage of 1100mA to 1300mA. This cable provides 1800mA constant. That talks a lot about the quality. Physically the cable is more flexible than Samsung's original cable, longer and the micro USB plugs into the phone firmly. Not too firm as some cheap cables out there. But not as flimsily as the Samsung cable either. Overall, a very good purchase. Will definitely order more of these.
-Better Current carrying capacity (as compared to samsung's original cable)
-Better micro usb plug (as compared to samsung's original cable)
CONS: None at all.
