    People are saying it is big. Can anybody supply a dimension? Like maybe the diameter of the reel? For reference other retractable reels I have are about 1" diameter and 1/2" thick.
    Juergen L on Mar 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi, this reel is bigger than the typical reels you referenced because this is for USB 3.0 while most other reels are typically USB 2.0 and therefore have a thinner cable. The circular part of this reel has a 2" diameter and is 3/4" thick. It works well with a laptop bag.

    Purchased this for my travel bag, unfortunately on the USB3 end the black plastic is so thick it will not fit without taking the cellphones slim case off. Tested on a Samsung note 3 and S5.

    PROS: Great concept, just wish the black plastic on the USB3 end would be 1/2 as thick so that it would work with my gear.

    CONS: USB3 end is too thick for use with cellphones.

    Ok but charges phone slowly
    I bought this unit to use in my car while using my phone as a navigator. I find that when using this cable my phone still discharges (GPS receivers draw a lot of power). I connected an amp meter between my power adapter and the cable and found I was drawing only .5 amps. When I switched to a different cable it drew .78 amps (ruled out the power adapter as the problem).

    PROS: retractable

    CONS: limited to .5 amps

    Boken cables
    The cables will not retract as advertised. All of them would not. Bad shipment?

    Great Cable, But Huge
    Overall, I'm very satisfied with this cable as it does exactly what I wanted it to do. The cable is really big as many people have said but this does end up meaning that the cable itself feels pretty durable so this might be a plus in the long run.

    I haven't had any issues with the fit of the cable that other reviewers have mentioned but I can easily see why they might have this issue. I guess I'm just lucky with my phone cases so far.

    PROS: Full USB 3.0 functionality, tangle free design, good for travel, works for charging and data, seems durable

    CONS: Absolutely huge compared to other retractable cables

    So far so good
    I have been a AVID fan of ZipLinq retractable cables for YEARS. Great idea, micro usb cables for charging most anything that dont tangle yet provide almost 3 feet of charging happiness. So when I saw mono price is the first one to come out with a tractable USB 3 charging cable I went for it.

    I have had very disappointing results with mono price 10' & 15' micro usb 2 cables, so I am cautiously optimistic on these cables.

    PROS: USB 3 charging cable

    tangle free

    CONS: a lot bigger than expected, could be due to it being a USB 3

    very stiff in functionality

    Works Well
    Works well for a USB 3 hard disk, and stores well when not in use.

    PROS: Works properly on my external 1.5TB USB 3.0 backup drive for my laptop. Needed something tangle free to store in the bag along with the laptop, etc. This works great for my needs.

    CONS: Its a lot bigger than I expected but its a USB 3 cable and therefore has more wires in it than the USB 2 versions I have. The cable is a bit stiff and it can take a try or 2 to get it to retract, but some of that may go away after some use.

    It's alright, broke pretty quick
    I bought this primarily to use in the ambulance. I could charge, then retract it so it doesn't get in the way, then put it in my pocket when I go home.

    Well one day I was getting out to a call a little too quickly and my phone was in my lap. The phone fell (which was fine, I have a good case), but the cable would never retract again. After that I kept using it, but just recently it stopped working.

    I've had it less than a year, maybe 9 months?

    Hello Rob,

    Thank you for your review and my apologies for any inconvenience with PID 10966. Now if you would like, I can help in setting up an RMA for a replacement on the cable. Just let me know and I can get that set up. I hope this helps!

    USB 3.0 Retractable Cable
    It works as far as cable goes, but the plastic cable cover is too thick/stiff. When extended the cable wants to curl back into loops. I wish there were Retractable Cable with softer cable and I would have looked for them if I would have known before.

    It's Huge!
    It's really large. When retracted, this takes up about about the same amount of room as a coiled, traditional 5' USB 3.0 micro-b cable. This retractable is only 3' long.

    Even though it functions properly, It's difficult to think of any reason to recommend it. Retractable cables aren't just about function, their other purpose is small size. This item is just too large to justify its existence. It gets 5 out of 10. Can't be recommended.

    PROS: It transmits power and data properly. It has thick cable, seems sturdy and reasonably well made.

    CONS: It's HUGE. It's easily 5 to 6 times larger than Monoprice's equivalent USB 2.0 micro-b retractable unit.

    It doesn't always reel back properly. The cables sometimes needs to be pulled out again in order for it reel in properly.. This isn't a problem with the Monoprice USB 2.0 micro-b retractable.

    The cable is quite stiff, perhaps causing the issues with it not always reeling back in properly.
