You can never have too many charging cables, but why not stock up on these durable Micro USB cables backed by Anker’s no-hassle 18-month warranty?

Charge Connectivity

These cables seem to allow a full-speed, 2.4 amp charge.  During testing, I did not notice any resistance in the power transfer.  Some lower-quality cables can reduce charging speed due to their inability to transfer a full 2.4 amp charge.

Data Connectivity

Some cheaper Micro USB cable only provide charge capabilities and no data.  This means that if you try to plug your phone into your computer or you car’s stereo, nothing will happen.

These cables from Anker support data transfer.  I did not notice any syncing or file transfer issues while using these cables.

Durability

The cable is thicker than many other cables and the connector ends are reinforced.  I’ve used many Anker cables in the past and they definitely last longer than even many OEM cables.  However, a braided nylon cover on the cable would score these cables even more durable.

Warranty

Anker’s 18-month is hassle-free.  I’ve only ever needed to get one cable replaced and the process was very easy.  I just needed to provide my receipt, serial number and a photo of the issue.  My replacement cable was then shipped directly to me.  The only thing that would score this higher would be a lifetime warranty, but I’ve found that if a cable is going to fail, it typically happens within the first year.

Excellent

Anker is known for their durable cables and they easily replace the cable if any issues arise. Unlike cheaper Micro USB cables, these Anker cables can be used for data transfer and syncing.
