Wanted to plug my phone into gimbal (DJI Osmo Mobile 3). I tried several cords and this one worked the best. Perfect length to allow gimbal movement and folding when in standby. Thin flexible cord, which this has, is also important for this use case.
I bought this for use in my car, to reach from my Apple CarPlay-enabled stereo to my iPhone on its holder. I wanted a cable long enough to reach from the USB jack to my reading-distance (when I need to use the iPhone directly and not through CarPlay), but not so long that it hangs in the way and clutters the space. So far, this cable serves this purpose very well. The only potential wrinkle is the direction the cable turns from the USB port: for me, turning right keeps the cable out of the way of my center storage bin, but for others this may not be ideal.
Bought these to connect my iPhone to my vehicles Apple Car Play. Perfect size to keep it connected in the center console. The right angle design is less likely to get damaged and/or damage the USB connection.
