my phone was charging SLOW. I have Samsung Note 3 which sucks down the battery juice. And I had bought micro usb charge cables for $1 at dollar tree. & After MANY wasted hours researching and testing.

I used the free app from google play store:
Ampere

I measured all my chargers and charging cables.
Highest charging amps was 1200 mah. Some cables chargers were as low as 400 mah. My phone discharges 450 mah when in use. So actually losing battery level while in use and charging.

I ended up with 3 bad/slow charge cables. & 2 bad chargers.

I don't have prime so this was best deal at about $1 a cable and cables have decent reviews that I could find.

Probably not slickest deal ever. But if your electronics are charging slowly best value I could find since I don't have Prime. Other dirt cheap cables are typically fragile with slow charging.

Hope this helps.

not sure why this is getting thumbed down.

expired front page deal for $4.50 for 6 cables through using Amazon prime, and couldn't mix and match cord lengths and quantities.

From pics it looks like the micro side has the really thick plastic. I tend to avoid these as sometimes they don't fit well depending on the device. For example, cell phone with a protective case on it sometimes is a problem. My experience.... Smilie

The plastic fits fine with my case BUT doesn't give me full charge rate with some of them.
4867 3ft - get 1000 mah.
4868 6ft - I get 600 mah
5137 1.5ft - I get full voltage 1200 mah

Without the full voltage I would not have done it. so 1.5 foot cords I would have done. Maybe the 3 foot ones. The 6 foot definitely not. Hope this helps someone else.
