Cheap cable = thin wire = high resistance = slow charging & easy to break.
Resistance is futile

I think I'll treat myself to one of those for work. We are getting new computers in the new year and mine is a laptop with only 2 usb ports on it, the rest are on the docking station at the back so it will come in handy, and look cool on my desk to.
Anker should be pretty good. I just got an anker battery for my note 4 and it seems better than the samsung original, and comes with 18 month warranty.It's just a shame some of the ones in that pack are so short.
They do seem to charge notably faster than before, using the same adapters. Also the micro usb jack end is very snug and stays plugged in tightly so far in all devices. Also they each have their own velcro like ties to help keep them tidy when not in use.
