6ft USB 2.0 A Male to Micro 5pin Male 28/28AWG Cable
The USB micro B connector has become the new universal standard connector used on most smartphones and tablets. This USB 2.0 cable features a USB A male plug on one end and a USB micro B male plug on the other end. It uses 28 AWG conductors for both data and power and is shielded to protect against signal interference and data loss.
- 100% compliant with USB 2.0 specifications
- 28 AWG data and power conductors
- Molded connector heads with molded strain relief boots
- Shielded to protect against external signal interference
PROS: It is a USB data cable
CONS: Meets the 0.5A USB spec
PROS: cable looks well made
CONS: this cable only allows 800 ma according to my S4 (using Current Widget) So if you are needing this for a rapid charge look at a different cable. My OEM Samsung cable allows 1200 ma and more when the screen is off)
PROS: Fast Delivery & Charge, and Lenght. Price
CONS: Won't support full charge rate.
Monoprice has a name I thought I could trust, with glowing reviews from multiple people's whom I respect, I thought I would be in good hands. Nope. Maybe the premium ones are better, but after being burned by the regulars, I'm not sure if I wanna try, and if I do, it's gonna be a LONG time.
PROS: Build Quality
Got them on sale (14 cents cheaper)
CONS: Dreadful charge times. (Ampere, an app that trys to saying a max of 150mA, and sits at 20mA)
Waste of money and my time.
I have been a customer of Monoprice for many years and purchased many product, these cables do not meet the quality I have come to expect from Monoprice.
PROS: When they work, they work well, but they won't work for long.
CONS: Not durable and received one DOA cable.
PROS: Typical monoprice price/quality.
CONS: Slow charge
For the price I paid i'm glad I ordered two.
Holding the connector in my fingers, I don't understand how someone could break it besides being careless and dropping their phone with the cable attached, or somehow pulling on the cable at a bad angle and bending the connector. I've tripped on the cable and sent my phone flying off my bed and across the floor the cable wasn't phased and didn't even come unconnected. Maybe they redesigned it and I have a new version? Either way, the thing is really solid in the plastic casing surrounding it and I have much more expensive cables that aren't this solid.
As far as this cable charging the phone slow, that's going to be caused by the power adapter that the cable is plugged into, not the cable itself. The cable merely transfers whatever amount of electricity your charger is putting out. If you have a problem with your phone charging slowly, you need to get a higher output power adapter/charger. A lot only put out 500mah or less, look for one that puts out more than 500mah. I have one that puts out 850mah, and another that puts out 1A, though that much output is hard on your phones battery and can shorten its life. That much output is more suited for tablets, but you can use it to rapid charge your phone.
If 6ft is the length you are looking for, buy this cable. The worst that could happen is it breaks and you're out 4/5ths the cost of a dollar menu hamburger and end up buying something else. Best-case scenario is you spend 4/5ths the cost of a dollar menu hamburger and are happily satisfied with it like I am.
PROS: Super cheap, length, quality
CONS: I didn't buy more
PROS: Does what it needs to do: charges my phone, allows me to transfer data to/from my phone
