These cables from Monoprice appear to be well made with quality materials. Unlike cheaper cables that are often times ill fitting, i.e., too loose and need to be pinched a bit with pliers to stay put, these fit snugly and maintain the connection well.
I ordered a couple of these for my new Android phone and was super pleased with the quality and price. I'm buying more now that I know they are great cables. Absolutely don't bother going to Verizon or Apple, because MonoPrice will hook you up!
