3 ft plastic cable vs 6 ft braided nylon cable. There is a pretty big difference.

I don't like those. Too stiff, I have one. I have no problems with Anker quality and have quite a few items from them. Regular non braided cables from anker yet to fail almost two years old, when cheapie would fail on me in a matter of few months with same use pattern.

Not a good deal. I get what appear to be the same cable from Amazon sold under various Chinese names like Rampow etc for $12.99 for a pack of (3) 10ft cables. I've been nothing but happy with them. I actually just bought a pack of 3 for the girlfriend a few days ago.

Ever since I got a Nintendo Switch I've had to be very wary of and knowledgeable about charger bases and cords since there's a real risk of bricking the Switch by using cheapo cables/bases. Just because that is the same length and corded doesn't mean they offer the same experience.

Anker's cab;es are MFI certified which is a pretty big distinguishing factor when comparing it to the knock-off cheapo cables. Anker also offers a pretty great warranty and is a trusted brand. If something happens due to the cable, you have little to worry about. I wouldn't say the same about Aonsen, which I know nothing about and has no MFI certification.

Here's a different company's experience getting MFI certified. It's pretty rigorous and if you want to jeopardize your phone to save a few bucks on cables... meh, that's on you. However, don't assume they're the same just because they appear to be identical.

As someone who has managed a certification program for a previous employer, don't put too much stock into certifications. You're welcome to spend 3x the price if you want but if you think 95% of these cables aren't all made in the same plant to the same specs, you're kidding yourself.

I've been using these and cables like them for years with zero issues. These aren't the el cheapo cables you get at the Dollar Tree.. These are cables, not Rolls Royce cam actuators we're talking about. They either work or they don't. And if they don't? no worries, you can even return them. Crazy stuff..

So, because you managed a specific certification program for a specific employer, ALL certification requirements are lackluster simply because yours were? K. Then why not test these yourself if you're truly that skeptical? You could go the easy route and just google/youtube results from people more experienced than you and I, but something tells me you're a "FAKE NEWS!" kinda guy and need to know for certain.

Go ahead and jeopardize your devices if you want, but I gotta say something when someone advocates for inferior cables as par with quality ones.

Love the Anker cables after being frustrated with my kids killing and breaking everything else. I thought I had my first Anker cable die the other day. Dragged out my door at 65mph for about 10 minutes...left it in my Dad's car...he kept it and said it still works despite having 25 percent of the shielding ground off and the braid on the last 2 inches shot to hell. I have zero issues paying full price for these. Even better when on sale!

I have used so many cheapo braided cables throughout the years. Anker seems to charge just as oem and actually last quite long. My first malfunction with my 6 foot anker powerline started after 1.5 years of ownership Used everyday, and taken with me to school and vacation. Worth the $10 vs a 3 pack of crappy cables that fail randomly or don't charge as long.

Also, I have noticed an influx of seemingly fake reviews on all these other cable multipacks now. Just read the reviews, doesn't sound "normal".

anker lifetime warranty vs 1 year warranty. meaning, if you don't lose the cable, you'll get a new one if they ever malfunction.

Again, spend your money however you like but I'm on slickdeals because I'm looking for ways to shave a few bucks on everything I buy. If I can get 90% performance for 60% less then that's a win. I you want to spend more money for some warm and fuzzy, go for it.. I'm not clear on how that's a deal though..

Anker is not a manufacturer. They buy cables from Shenzhen just like everyone else. Do they spec nice cables? sure.. but just because they spend the money to get a cert doesn't mean other cables aren't made the same.
