The point I'm trying to make is these are wonderful cables for a professional environment that should last forever providing there is minimal flexing in its daily use.
It is a bit thick and less pliable than Samsung's, but that's just a bonus for me because the reason I had gone through 2 chargers previously was because my cat likes to chew them. My last one had also got so loose that it would fall right out of my phone if I even looked at it wrong, and I often had to wiggle it to get it to maintain the connection. This one is in there nice and firm, so far I have no complaints. It's longer too, but I like that. I have a Galaxy S5, if it helps.
I tested several other AmazonBasics cables, a 9-foot USB 3 and two 3-foot USB 2 cables, and they were utter garbage, reading just 0.8 and 0.4 Amps. I was expecting this 3-foot USB 3 cable to be just as bad as the others.
I plugged it in to the tester and the tablet, and checked the reading. 1.50 Amps! Hey, this cable is actually decent! I'm pleasantly surprised!
Here's why: when my cable arrived, it would not work on a USB 3.0 port. I tried two different ports, but it did not matter: my computer would not recognize my portable hard drive. Since the drive worked perfectly with the cable that came with it, I knew the problem was with the Amazon Basics cable, and not the drive or the USB ports on my computer.
Oddly enough, the cable did work in a USB 2.0 port. But if I had wanted to buy a USB 2.0 cable, I would not have ordered this one.
Anyway, I contacted Amazon Customer Service, and, to their credit, they promptly shipped me a new cable, at no cost to me. Big thanks to them for addressing my problem so quickly.
Unfortunately, the replacement cable performed even worse than the first one: it would not work in either a USB 3.0 port or in USB 2.0 port. This buying experience was a complete waste of my time.
I then did what I should have done in the first place: I ordered three Monoprice Select Series USB 3.0 cables and each one of them worked perfectly.
To sum this sad story up: it is not worth your time to buy this product, at least not until Amazon address their quality control issues. Note to Amazon: I still have both cables, and will be happy to ship them back to you for failure analysis.
