USB Version Numbers
There are a number of different USB version numbers (1.0, 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0). This indicates their transfer speed. The higher the version number, the faster they can work. However, to get the full power, the "host", the device and the cable must have the same version. If not, the lowest USB version in the chain will control the speed.
For example,if your computer has a 2.0 USB port, your cable is 3.0, and your phone is 3.0, you will achieve 2.0 speed. If all three (computer, cable and phone) have 3.0 then you will achieve 3.0 speed.

Of course, cables can be used for so much more than just connecting devices. Skipping ropes for gnomes, bridles for tiny horses, speed bumps for toy cars, the list goes on. Why not use one of these cables as a washing line? Or use it to tie up larger cables? Or chew it as a particularly bitter liquorice alternative? It's worth thinking about, anyway. If we expand our expectations of what cables can do then eventually cable reviewers will have more to write about, which is good for everybody.
By the way, don't actually try to chew this cable. It's not good for your teeth and it genuinely tastes disgusting. Not that I'd know, of course.
and 6 mb/s to 20 mb/s (with fluctuation) using USB 2.0
Both Connectors remains sturdy even after repetitive use.
1. Excellent Build Quality & Sturdy.
2. The PINS (of the Cable) fits well to both the ports – Firm + Strong = Durable.
3. Pins are not Shaky.
4. Cable Wire looks Stout and Durable.
5. Used for few days and found very Reliable.
Final Verdict = "A Quality Product"
Only drawback is the cable is very thick, it may damage the port on the charger or the hdd over time.
It doesn't fit in my neoprene official case however for use at home it's so much more convenient to have a faster, longer cable.
The cable came in minimal packaging which is very nice. Only a small amount of packaging was binned.
It appears to be high quality, and whilst I've only owned it for a couple of weeks I've used it almost exclusively.
Thanks Amazon! This was my first Prime purchase, and I don't regret it.
