Pros & Cons

Pros

Great, high quality product.... just not what I intended it for. I've trusted Anker as a brand for quite some time now and these cords are nothing less than the standard that I have become used to from them. The braiding is thick and feels premium, the plug has a nice *snap* feel when plugging into my Samsung Galaxy Note8, and they charge just as fast as my factory Samsung cord that came with my phone. I originally stumbled on these (USB Type C Cable, Anker PowerLine+ USB C to USB 3.0 cable (6ft), High Durability, for Samsung Galaxy Note 8) and on that page, I was redirected to a "new model" which I promptly clicked on because typically when there is a "new" model, it is improved in some way. After purchasing that new model and receiving it, I found out that it is USB 2.0 to USB C instead of the previous USB 3.0 to USB C, which made a big difference for the application I was intending to use it for. Now, some of this is Amazon user stupidity because I should have read the description of the product as soon as I clicked the link to the new and improved model, but if it is not exactly the same product but improved, it should not be labeled as such. This is not a "new" model, this is a "different" model. I was originally going to return them and purchase the Anker cords I originally found, but these cords are just too premium and feel so good that I cancelled the return and have relegated them to a few spare USB C charging cords around my house, which you can never truly have enough of. If that doesn't speak to the quality of this product, then I don't know what does, because Anker convinced me to keep a product I did not even want or need with said quality.

Charge fast, break fast, replace fast. Very fast charging cables and nice quality braiding, but one of the two cables in the package has stopped working after only a week and a half. Can't return the whole thing for two new cables because I have given the other cable to someone else who needed one, so unless theirs breaks too, I'm stuck with no cable again. EDIT: After writing this review I was promptly contacted by Anker and offered a new set of replacement cables. I have received the new cables and they are working excellently, so I assume the bad cable was a manufacturing defect. I will be sending it back for quality control now that I have working cables. Excellent response from Anker.

Cable detaches easily from phone. Love Anker products I never use the OEM cables due to the fact that Anker cables are better overall. The quality of these are the same i expect fro. all Anker products, durable. But the only problem I have with these that really irritates me is the slightest pull of the cable and the cable detaches I leave my phone charging as i drive and by the time I arrive to work I find the cable had unplugged from my phone or if I have it plugged to my portable battery in my backpack it has come unlpugged I thought it was my phone but my previous cables and OEM cables fit snug I don't kniw if this is a problem or I just got some lemons Edit Anker contacted me and shipped me out replacement cables that worked great good company to buy from

Nice cable, just ok for iPad Pro 2018. This is a nicely crafted cable, I like the quality and feel very much. This is only enhanced by how affordable it is. My only concern is how it only charges my iPad Pro 11 2018 model at about 7 Watts from an Apple iPad charging brick, USB-A. I have a few of these old bricks laying around from previous purchases. I also have a USB-A charging nightstand so I was excited to find this cable that has a USB-C end and USB-A. If it was possible to get the full 12 Watts from the Apple charging brick that would be about a 50% increase. I have sent a similar message to this to Anker and await their response. Take aways for iPad Pro 2018 11" - Still a good enough charging speed for overnight charging - Quality look and feel to the cable - Good price - Great brand Photos. (using a Drok USB Tester and a Outlet power tester along with an Apple 12W brick) -One photos shows 8.5 Watts @ the outlet and 7.19 Watts after the power brick -Other photo shows 5.06 Volts and 1.42 Amps. -Some users report a 12 watt charger taking about 4.5 hours to charge a 10.5" iPad. Just a guess, with this cable the 11" should be fully charged after a full night of charging ~ 8 hours.

Anker always delivers quality items, a USB-C I can trust. After reading some articles that using cheap chinese no name brand usb-c cables can potentially damage your phone, I decided to pay the extra money to get these Anker cables. They fast charge like a boss, and I have zero fear that they cable will damage my new Samsung note 9. If I'm going to spend $1000 on a phone, I should at least spend the 7-8 dollars for quality cables! I confirmed that the cable does indeed fast charge.

Durable with very minor issues! I had bought these chargers on Nov 5th, 2019 for my phone and have had no major issues with the cables. I've been using one cable since then (I had given my extra cable to my bf) and the only gripes I had were the length (personal issue) and that if I plugged the cable in, I'd sometime get the "this isnt an authentic charger" problem. This would cause it to not charge/not fast charge. However, unplugging it and simply turning it around usually fixed the issue. I have noticed that it has slowed down recently in charging though (fast charging would say I have 43 min left to fully charge, but it'd take much longer than that), so I assume it is losing some quality. I'm still experiencing these issues, but that's still amazing for almost 2 years of use! The cable itself is completely fine from what I see. I'd love to repurchase this, but I personally need a 10 ft cable. But would definitely recommend it for others who don't mind the length, and I've had great experiences with Anker CS if I ever needed to contact them.

Cons

usb 2.0. usb 2.0 should not exist in 2019 usb 2.0 should not exist in usb type c this item is an unholy abomination with excellent build quality like you'd expect from Anker. i was having trouble with another usb type c cable that had connectivity issues with my note 9. the tolerances on this cable however are much tighter allowing my phone to maintain a stable connection to my car stereo that is regrettably, too slow to facilitate android auto. the sleeving on the cable is of sufficient quality to allow the bits to safely travel from device to device one at a time at their own sedentary 2.0 pace.

Well made but NOT FAST CHARGING! Read the specs before buying a charging-data transfer cable. If it says 480 transfer speed, that is crawling. Also notice or ask what the wattage the cable will handle. For example: Why are these cables 2 for $9.00 when others are up to $25? Answer is speed, watts and data transfer. These are rated at only 15 watts max, which is NOT fast charging. Even the Samsung stock chargers are 25 watts and not true fast chargers. Or the 45 watt fast charger. Cable has to match charger in order to work. For example, I have a 5amp cable, capable of up to 100 watts and a 65 watt wall charger. The cable is capable or carrying full 65 watts to the battery and charges phone to full in 1hr. Same 65 watt charger with this only capable of 15watt cable? Well, you get the idea. Cable will only allow 15watts which makes charge time 2 hours with ANY charger 15 watt or higher. Another thing which happens is most high speed chargers 45-65 watt advertised, will push high watts only for first 1/2 charge cycle. Then they throttle back to 25 watts and 7 watts in the last 1/4 of full charge. So if you monitor a charging cycle, know about the throttling effect. So a Samsung 45watt fast charger, stock 25watt charger and 15 watt desktop model will take exactly 2 hours no matter what to charge my Note 10 plus from 10-100% charge. All in the throttling. Fast chargers and cables only are effective when you need to quickly bring your phone to 50%, then the throttle begins. Have only found 1 charger out of 1 which carries full 65 watts all the way thru charge cycle. 1hr full charge with no heatup. It is a desk 3 port with 6ft power cord. Not a cube for travel, which throttle down. This one has 65 watt USB C port#1, 25 watt USB C port #2 and old style USB A 15 watt port#3. That is nice as I can charge any device with cable that is old USB A on one end. I use that as primary charging unit and leave 3 short 6" cables plugged into 3 ports. If I need phone quickly charged, port #1 65 watts straight thru. Or port #2 USBC for Samsung earbuds. And USB A port#3 for older devices with micro usb connectors. All in the cable and charging unit. These Askers are extremely slow @ 15 watts, then throttling back with slow transfer rates for data between devices. Returning and purchased the Anker 6ft 5amp version which will handle higher watt chargers and much faster data trans speeds. These would suffice if time is not a factor. Anker makes good products. However, these are definitely NOT fast charger cables @ 15 watts. All in the price

I own a ton of Anker products but... This is not my first rodeo with Anker cables. I've gone through at least 10. They all, no matter what material they are made of, seem to have the same exact weak spot (see photo). These are only lasting me about 5-6 months on average before some sign of damage becomes visible (or they just cease to work at all). I have had warranty replacement done in the past on a different cable and it was a huge hassle. I am by no means hard on my cables proven by the fact that I had my original apple ipad cable for over four years before it had any sort of issue and I had to replace it. These cables just have a short life span but work great (while they work)

Not as reliable as previous versions. I have used Anker for year... they are my goto company for battery packs, flashlights, and cables. I don't even bother looking elsewhere. The first type C cable I had from them last around 2 years. Over time I could plug it into my phone and one way it would Fast Charge and the other way it was slow charging. A few months ago both sides just started slow charging. I figured as much as I am plugging / unplugging that cable on a daily basis in my car, I had wore it out. So I opted to replace it with what I thought was the same cable. Over all it looks the same, feels the same but with the slightest movement it just falls out of my phone. I have a 6 foot one in my car and it works perfectly, but something about these new 3 foot ones just don't fit right. I usually have my phone mounted vertically in my phone using one of the air vent holders... bumpy roads and pot holes is enough for the cable to just slip right out. It's not the kind of quality I expect out of Anker. When it's plugged in and staying put, it fast charges like a champ. The cable feels very durable but it is not a reliable cable. I feel like it's a defect that slipped past whatever quality control Anker has.

Cable plug unreliable. The media could not be loaded. I knew what I was buying when I ordered this. A 6ft cable with some added strength on it, USB 2.0, and fast charging. It fulfills on all those ends (yes even fast charging although the video may not demonstrate that). I left my phone charging on this cable when my phone was running low on battery. The product it was used on was an LGV20. When I came back, it had marginally less charge and the cable was unplugged. In the video I demonstrate that with mild shaking, the Anker cable comes loose. You can see that the charging status disappears before I shake it off. My old charging cable, which is now a year and a half old, developed this issue sometimes where it lets loose as the new Anker cable demonstrates. For comparison, I have included a demo of my old cable and what I was hoping for in a 6 ft. Anker charging cable. As for durability, it could probably make for a really strong rope. The material feels very good. When it was charging, it did indeed fast charge. I haven't tested file transferring but if it did connect 100% without the possibility of it actually disconnecting during file transfer, I would assume it's at the speed of USB 2.0. The cable itself is pretty sturdy too. I can more than likely lay the cable on top of my chair and ignore the cable being damaged. However, none of this matters if the cable cannot reliably connect. They make for better ropes rather than charging cables. I do not recommend, even at $10.

A disappointment. A little over a year of having this cable, this is what it looks like. This cable is only used by adults, lives on a charger near the couch, and gets light use. I've had lots of Anker cables and power adapters before, so I expected this to hold up much better. But older USB cables I've tossed in bags, taken on trips and abused heavily have held up much better than this one for years. A very disappointing product.
