To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I always want to use the products I buy before writing an immediate review. Obviously if you just get it and it works fine. It doesn't really gauge how long the product will last. I've had this charger for about 6 months now and I love it. I throw it haphazardly in my purse and it may get a little tangled with my other junk, lol, but it's never hard to untangle and the bending of the cord does not affect the quality of charging. This is a fast charger and obviously I got a fast adapter that would hold up with the charger and I can be zero to 100% in about an hour. Normally with standard chargers and adapters it can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, so this is a nice difference. When I bought this one, I bought another braided cord charger as well to compare how each would hold up against each other for the price, but unfortunately the other one didn't hold up to my wear and tear. So, I've odered another of these
The perfect charging cord for your Samsung Galaxy s5. This cord is much much better than the original OEM stock charging cord that came with the s5 phone because it's braided instead of just plain plastic that will expose it's internal wires later due to the constant bending. This is typical in most charging cords and it happened to the cords of my Apple Ipad Air 2 and my other electronic gadgets. This cord also durable the way it's made and it's a great buy honestly. A highly recommended buy.
This is an incredibly well made product. I have an older Galaxy S5 and have had to return a couple slightly lower prices but cheaply made longer cables that look great on the outside, but after they are bent a few times, fail. This USA made product is like Cadillac or the well made American muscle cars in their prime.
If you want an actually well Made cable that has excellent flexibility and conductivity, this is it !
This cord is the fourth one I have had. The original which frayed after time, two I bought at Verizon corporate store, and this one I ordered. The two I bought from Verizon store cost almost $30.00. When the third one kept slipping out of my phone, I checked Amazon. This is exactly what I needed. The cord is heavy duty, so I don't believe it will fray anytime soon. Also the plug that goes into my phone is like the original which the ones I bought at Verizon store were not. Also I feel this is a good value for my money. It shipped and arrived on time.
I'm used to the Samsung white cables starting to split, and eventually wondering if they are going to keep working. I've been using this for the last 2 months, not long I know, but it has held up with daily charging and data transfer tasks.
Initially, the connectors were really tight to insert, but this has improved.
With the 6 foot length, I don't have to feel tethered to any one region of the room, or my desk. If it's needed, I'd definitely purchase again.
I took my time and searched for the most compatible cord for my Samsung Galaxy 5. I know, I know, the phone is old, but I have a lot of stuff on it that I need to transfer, download or forward that I haven’t done yet. I have purchased a replacement cord before out of a big box retailer and every few minutes, I would receive a prompt stating that my phone wasn’t charging due to the cord not being the “original” cord. This cord that I purchased on Amazon works perfectly for my needs. It charges the phone (so far) and I haven’t received any unnecessary prompts while the cord is attached. Also the cord is longer then the original Samsung cord which I like. Last, the best feature is the braided material which will allow the cord to last longer and be more durable. Oh yes, I almost forgot to state that it charges within 10-15 minutes max to 100% from 19% which is pretty fast. I would recommend this cord for Samsung Galaxy 5 phone users.
Don't buy. I was looking for a charger for my S5 that worked like the original double head. This was the right size and it fit my phone, but it took FOREVER to charge. It would lose power if I was on the phone even while it was plugged in. I went back to my cheaper half head charger.
I have bought so many charging cables and they all broke at the same area sooner or later. This one is much better than the plastic/rubber kind I had been buying. The cable reminds me of an old timey clothes iron cable, much thinner, of course, and it looks like this one will last much longer. I would recommend this cable.
Great charger cord. Sturdy. Seems like they will last awhile. I always have an overnight bag packed in case of emergencies. I have one in there packed in a small bag. When I take it out it goes right back to the normal straight cord shape. Not all curled and weird like some do, that annoys me. I would definitely purchase again.
I returned this cable because it did not fit properly in my Galaxy S5 phone. The connector shield was too large to allow the connector to insert properly into the phone’s charger port, so it would not remain inserted nor would it make electrical connectivity.
