As advertised, cable is very flexible and comes with Double Braided Nylon which makes this cable super durable (you can tell right out of the box, the cable has a nice thickness to it). I don't have to worry about kinking or damaging the cable from bends, twists, or coiling. It's also a bonus that it comes with Velcro wrap to assist with cable management.
The sleeves that cover the contact points between the cable and the USB heads are well protected with an extended (not sure if it's plastic or rubber) neck which is nice, that should ensure the longevity of the cable and it's also quite rigid so there is ample of support on the connection points.
I did not run any scientific testing for transfer speeds as I do not have any devices that read/write anywhere near 5gb/s, however I did test transferring 5gb of data from my PC to SG8+ which took about 3 minutes (smaller batch files transfers where anywhere from 180-250 mb/s) to me this is more than satisfactory as this is better than my older cables.
My primary use of this cable is for charging my SG8 + which it does a superb job of; charging times matches expectation as it's on par with fast charging out of the box from the manufacture, without a fast charging brick, it runs standard 2.1 amp which is exactly what I would expect with my SG8+.
Overall, an excellent USB Type-C to Type-A 3.1 cable by AmazonBasic, I would totally recommend picking up a few of these if you need more charging cables and/or want to replace cables you currently have as these are far more durable then what most manufactures provide. Also, these cables look great, I really like that AmazonBasic offers a few different color options! Awesome job by Amazon/AmazonBasic!
