abunda_amazon_reviews The Importance of a 20AWG Charging Wire -------------------------------------------------------- Many cheap Micro USB cables use 28AWG current wires or commonly referred to as 28/28 AWG - 'AWG' is a representation of the thickness of a wire . Higher the AWG number , thinner the wire .These 28AWG cables will barely be able to carry more than 0.5 A of current to you phone , no matter how powerful your charger is and as a result will charge you devices very slowly. Compare that a 20AWG Wire which 2.5 times thicker (or 150%) than the 28AWG cable. You can see visually in my tear-down image the difference in the thickness off the Data and the Power cables Cable Construction & Kevlar Reinforcement ---------------------------------------------------------- Kevlar is actually a trademark of the DuPont company. The Kevlar fiber used in the Anker Powerline is known as K49 (Yellowish in color) which is used for reinforcing cables and making marine mooring ropes. - The cable wires itself are made of Silver conductor which is a good thing as Silver has better electrical conductivity than copper (a common misconception) - The Kevlar fiber reinforcement gives is what gives these cable a very good durability. Typically whenever a cable is bent, some of the thinner silver wires break (see pic) and if repeatedly stressed at the same point (like near the connectors ) the entire connection can break. The Kevlar fiber keeps the cable structure intact (being more flexible and stronger than the silver wires) and minimizing the damage done due to these 'mirco' breaks - The Mirco USB connector is very sleek and should be able to fit well even with cases with very small openings - Will truly be able to charge all your devices at their maximum potential speeds Cons -------- - Its has a slightly shorter length at 3 Ft whereas the standard size for most cables is at 3.3 Ft So there it is , the Anker PowerLine is an excellent cable & is everything that it claims to be. It is well worth the $5 investment and I hope that this treardown picture of my cable will come to your mind while thinking of purchasing cheap cables the next time :);;Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Anker PowerLine Teardown Review;;Farhan K;;/gp/customer-reviews/RZP2GJHYT1L0I/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B012VWH6PQ;;;Edit: After posting this review, Anker Direct contacted me directly and offered me a longer 6ft cable free of charge. The replacement was promptly shipped when my address was confirmed, and the company even checked in later in the week to make sure that I was satisfied with it. That's a level of customer service I didn't expect from a purchase like this. Anker has demonstrated a clear commitment to customer satisfaction and that alone has suitably swayed my opinion on the product. While it is my firm belief that a five star experience should avoid the complexities of returns or replacements, this level of support is clearly worth more than a three star review and I have changed my rating to reflect this. While the unedited review below is still reflective of my initial experience, I can safely recommend the purchase regardless. If you are in any way dissatisfied with your purchase, as I was, I have full confidence that Anker will do everything in their power to see that you are satisfied. This cable basically does the job it's supposed to do, and that's just fine, but whoever did the measurement on this one isn't very good with a tape measure. At its longest, from the very end of one connector to the end tip of the other, this cable is about 34.5 inches in length. That's 2.875 feet, which is... close enough for a phone charger? However, if you planned to use this for any other applications where the physical length might actually matter, be aware that the actual length of the cable itself is 31.5 inches or about 2.625 feet and that even including the connectors doesn't get you to the advertised 3 ft of length. I understand that companies need to save where they can these days, but cutting inches out of the advertised length of your cables makes planning things out beforehand infuriating. A few inches here or there can really add up, and these kinds of discrepancies can easily make or break some projects. I guess here I can personally make do, but that won't always be the case for everyone.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Three feet?

Who hear wants to buy dozens of cheap cables just to have them break about as quickly as it took you to walk to your car. You need to purchase good quality chargers. Call me an Anker fan boy but I am always impressed with their charging cables. I bought the 3ft cord because I have a couple 6ft and a couple 1ft and 3ft is a sweet spot. If your USB port is right next to your bed you should be okay. But if you want to always reach, buy the 6ft just beware they do tangle more easily. My other micro USB are Anker made as well but they aren't this line (Powerline), they are the six pack Anker [5-Pack] Premium Micro USB Cables in Assorted Lengths (3ft, 6ft, 1ft) High Speed USB 2.0 A Male to Micro B Sync and Charge Cables (Black). Great cables by the way but see that review separately. This cable you can tell is a bit more stiff, probably because of the fiber strands inside but not stiff it will take a shape. The plastic at either end is hard and seems very durable. Where the metal ends go into the plastic also seem VERY durable. In my past experience this seems to be a big problem point, as the metal will bend if smacked to hard or just gets old. I tried to bend it putting moderate force into it using my thumbs and was unable too; same for the USB side too. Charging Speeds and transfer speeds are on par with about every cable you get these days. Compared to my Motorola TurboCharger cable they performed exactly the same. Buying this cable is to me less about charging and transfer rates and more about reliability. I hate having to carry 2 cables hoping I don't have to use the backup. With this cable I know it won't break, bend or fray. The cable even comes in a nice box with a velcro tie to keep the cord nice and neat. The cord is worth the peace of mind, trust me you won't be disappointed.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Quality Cable;;Alexander;;/gp/customer-reviews/R2N0CZ91YMB6U0/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B012VWH6PQ
