Good Recharging Cable That Could Benefit From Some Improvement.
Reviewed in Australia on 4 March 2021
My UGREEN Micro USB Nylon Braided, Micro to USB 2.0 Android Charger Cable for Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, Note, LG, Nexus, Nokia, PS4, Xbox One Controller arrived on time and in good condition. Thanks to Amazon (Au) for a quick dispatch and to Australia Post for a fast delivery.
I bought this cable as a replacement for a defective (broken wires up by the Micro USB connector) lead, so that I can continue to charge my Chord Mojo. The cable has regular braiding and is of uniform thickness. Both connectors fit nice and snug to give good, positive contact. The cable performs the recharge function without issue.
However, I have one major concern. Like many similar cables, where the cable wires enter the connectors, is problematic (broken wires). The degree of cable bend, relative to the hard plastic connectors (see photo) can, sooner or later, result in broken cable wires. Yes, I know that you can do home modifications eg. layer(s) of heat shrink tubing. However, like all new products, it should have reasonable longevity with ordinary usage (yes, people do bend cables). Cable engineering/ manufacturing should allow for how people actually handle / use cables. One solution could be to incorporate a smaller arrangement found on iron cords, up by the iron.
All in all, a good recharge cable that could benefit from some improvement.
