    It works

    Nothing too crazy to say here, this item plugs into a wall charger base(not included) , it transfers electricity from the outlet to the desired item so long as it is connected and has the capacity to be and hold a charge. Nothing else to report at this time, I will however keep the readers briefed if said charger takes up a new occupation in or out of my household. The very best of times to you with your shopping endeavors. Oh, one more thing, this is more of a request than an update. Can someone please let me know if they witness this item doing anything outside of the description of use?

    I LOVE it when Best Buy asks me to write a review for a wire... WAIT! not a WIRE, but SEVERAL wires in an enclosed, specific configuration with 2 male connectors, yet 1 not quite like the other! Why, it's... it's a CABLE! Let me be clear. This is an exceptional cable. Truly. What I don't understand, is why there are 5 stars to choose from for this. I mean, it either works or it doesn't, right? There should be one star or none. This is a cable that works just fine, thank you very much. Buy with confidence this cable, here! Do not hesitate! Hurry, before other people's wisdom eclipses yours and you have no cable at all! THEN, where would you be? Up that odorous creek sans paddle, THAT'S where! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! buy the dang cable, will ya?

    My Christmas Picture Taking Saved !

    I have a Sony digital camera that I purchased about four years ago from Best Buy. It has been an excellent camera for all these years. Unfortunately the small plug that goes from the charger into the body of the camera got bent and I couldn’t recharge the camera. I went to three other stores and the clerks could not really help me very much. Then I went to Best Buy and a knowledgable clerk showed me this product and I plugged into the camera charger unit then into the wall electric outlet and it worked l8ke a dream. Now I don’t have to worry about having enough of a charge to take my family Christmas pictures . End of my Christmas happy ending. !

    4" Micro USB cable

    My AppleTV device required an update. The device would not allow me to make use of it until the update was completed. Well, I had difficulty with this. I tried recommendations online, but they did not work. I went to BestBuy and inquired at the customer service desk. They referred me to the GeekSquad counter. Once there the employee told me that he could easily resolve this for me for a fee of $30. Thirty dollars is not really an expensive cost, however it was the principle AND the way the GEEKsquad employee spoke to me. So...I decided to buy a new USB cable and try it myself. It turned out that I should be an employee of GeekSquad (or some place similar) because I resolved my own issue for a fee of about $14.

    I purchased this item so that I would be able to download pictures from my wife's and my own phone. I used it to make a connection between the phone and one of my computers. it charged the phone just fine but it did not allow me to download pictures. I thought that it was a simple matter of finding the proper driver for my phone but that did not work. I have an LG phone through Verizon and neither of these were much help. In fact, they told me that the phone could only be charged with this connection. I found out from the Bet Buy people that this is also not true as they were able to download everything to a new upgraded phone using the same/similar cable. I recommend you do some research before buying if you have a similar application.

    Extra charging power

    I typically purchase phone charging cables at the local gas station (my bad) and pay the price, literally, because they don't work well, or they work intermittently. I decided to spend a little more at the outset on a cable for my car. This thing is great! It works like a charm and even gets my phone to a full charge, which I could almost never get with the gas station cables. Also, I don't have to lisiten to the charging -now not charging- now charging beeps that my other cables are so often doing. Sometimes it is better to pay a little more up front and get something of better quallity, Your phone and your nerves will thank you!

    I was in need of a phone charger after my other one got left in the house and my phone was dying. I went into Best Buy looking for a charger for a Samsung Galaxy S8+ and then realized that while I'm in my car, I also charge my daughter's Motorola Moto G5+ on the road. I already had the base for the charger, so all I needed was the cable and adapter. After going back and forth, I decided on this charger cable and the adapter for the S8+. I am very NOT disappointed. It turbo charges my phone and in the car, it'll go from 20% to 100% in two hours while driving down the road and running Pandora radio. I highly recommend this charger wire!

    One thing to be aware of is that these cables are USB 1.1, not 2.0. So if you plan on transferring files from your computer they will be slower than the cable supplied with your android phone or tablet. In my case I have a Samsung S6 and this replaced the cable that was chewed by a cat. Didn't notice any issue until I tried transferring files, I thought it was the computer but after finally trying a non-insignia cable (I bought three) I was finally able to get USB 2.0 speeds. I also have a longer version of this cable that falls out of any device I plug it into so it's clear these wear out quickly. Since I bought three of these cables I doubt it's coincidence that all of them supply USB 1.1 speeds from a defect.

    Can't use it; the clerk said it would automatically work, that I wouldn't have to do anything but plug it in . . . I did and nothing happens and I don't know how to do computer stuff so now I'm stuck with a cord and still can't transfer my pictures. Really nasty to sell me something when I've said I can't do anything on the computer and you lie to me and tell me I won't have to do ANYTHING and it's all just a lie to make me buy stuff from Best Buy. The clerk was an absolute liar.

    I needed these connectors and was hesitant to purchase more from drug stores or gas stations, citing durability. But these were rather expensive, pushing $20 per. And ironically, after purchasing, I found my stash of spare connectors. Alas, it was after the 14 day return policy - another weakness, not in the product, but of your store. Bottom line: Don't buy at Best Buy unless you know you're going to need it - and are not worried about the possible need to return.

    Works perfectly for a Samsung phone

    I needed a cord that would work with my Samsung Galaxy 4 to connect to a car charger since my original Samsung cord split months earlier. This cord works well with phone and the car charger, and because it's Insignia, I saved lots of money on it vs. the Samsung brand. I will say that I purchased a replacement Insignia cord and plug for my original Samsung cord; the Insignia cord does not have the ability to separate as a USB cord like the Samsung. So, I may have saved money; if I purchased the true replacement cord, I probably would not have had to go back and purchase this cord as an extra item. So, it's probably truly even in the cost if my review makes sense.

    The 4' blue USB cable is awesome. It's not only 4 long but it's also my favorite color, blue ! When I first plugged it into my USB port I knew it was going to do the job. It not only fit the USB port exactly right it also fit my cell exactly the way it should. The experience of plugging it in both ends of my phone and USB port in my car was a once in a lifetime cable experience. Thank you Best Buy ! Thank you so much ! Also, thanks for letting me tell the story of my 4' USB cable. An important product like this could put an end to world hunger. Please let me know when this gets posted. I always wanted to be published.

    Along with the original iPad, iPad 2, Mini, Touch Smartphone & pc desk & laptop, these items are a great way to upload, download & transfer data securely & confidently. To get the full benefit of their uses, I use my "Rapid Car Charger" (& adapter) with both of these (2) devices in my home, car, hotel room, airline flight/terminal or any other ac/dc electronic outlet with great success & satisfaction! These are essential components I'm NEVER without!!!....They keep me connected, updated & informed with each of my technological communication pieces for the person who relies on their powered equipment as 2nd to 'The Bible!"

    This seems like such a simple little piece of equipment, but it's an essential for those of us who take pictures with our cell phones! You just plug the large end into the receiving slot on the computer, then plug the smaller end into the cell phone, and the thing does all the rest! This lets me download my pictures and attach them to emails, etc. I can choose to leave the pictures on the phone camera or delete as many as I wish. (Just a few of the couple dozen pictures I took of the big black bear sitting in my front yard were really keepers!) This sure simplifies my life!

    Decent replacement cord at a reasonable price

    Hey - it's really just a charging cord, but without it you have a problem juicing your phone, right? My Galaxy S4 charger cord got caught in a door and was cut, so I needed a replacement. Best Buy had several - in either black or blue. Really would have liked to have had a white cord (to match the charger head) but white was not available. I thought that to be rather odd.... Anyway, it is a tighter fit in the charging port (which is good) than the old one. My recommendation is get a cord longer than 4 feet. Sitting in an airport - or even on the couch - you'll need to sit close to the outlet or use an extension cord.

    The Samsung micro USB Charger-Sync cable for my Samsung smartphone stopped working (it was out of warranty). Went to Best Buy and asked at Samsung counter if they had a replacement.Samsung rep tried to sell me a $35 Samsung charging kit (which it turned out was not compatible with my model phone). Instead I purchased a Insignia brand 4 ft Micro USB charger-sync cable for $9.99 and it works great. I had previously purchased at Best Buy an Insignia TV and found that to be reliable.

    What can I say, it's a USB cable. It does the job it's supposed to do. When the charge cable that came with my cell phone stopped charging the phone, I had to go looking for a replacement. Problem is, it was not that easy to find just a cable. Everybody wants to sell the cable with a charger, wall or auto, and I already had a charger. Thankfully, Best Buy sells these basic USB cables at a reasonable cost that get the job done. It's been months now and the cable still does what it's supposed to do, charge my cell phone. And the fact that I could get it in something other than boring black was just a nice bonus.

    I am highly satisfied with this product! My old charger was\ not made very well and didn't fit snugly into the port in my phone. It constantly gave me issues and problems and when I was finally sick of it I purchased this item! It fits snugly in the usb port in my phone and charges my phone really quickly! The cord is longer than my old one as well so it is easier for me to play around on my phone as it is charging when still lying on my bed. Great product for a great price! Would definitely buy this again if I ever need another one!

    This cable is truly a miracle of science. Employing the principles of something smart people refer to as "electrochemisty," Insignia's breathtaking technology - in conjunction with some source of electricity - can help revive a phone battery in less than one hundred years, sometimes in as little as a few short hours, provided you have paid all appropriate utility bills. As I understand it, this cable can also be used to transfer "files" to and from various "devices," but I've never been able to make heads or tails of computery jargon so don't ask me about that. All I know is it's blue.

    My Samsung S8+ phone could no longer charge up using the existing cable that came with the Mophie charger. Bought a four foot Insignia replacement and it works beautifully and has ever since. Thought I might have to buy a new charger instead of just the cable and Best Buy to their credit had one in stock. Also got great help from the rep as he directed me to cable right away.
