    Perfect Addition to my Samsung S10+ Phone

    This was the perfect solution to my charging dilemma after purchasing a previously owned Samsung S8 phone off eBay. While the device was almost 100% as if It were purchased brand new from a store, it only came with one charging cord that didn't have an (oh so universal) USB adapter end. At first, I had didn't recognize the need; it was only after finding myself in situations without a wall plug to use or accidentally misplacing the cord all together for a week that I took the trip to Best Buy and bought this cord. Instantly I was more than satisfied with my purchase, especially when I could charge my phone in my cars USB port again (like I always so effortlessly could with my android phone), get the extra juice I needed off of a friend's Bluetooth speaker that had a USB charging option, and plug my phone into my laptop when out in the field at work. I loved how unique I felt by buying the Samsung S10+, and being satisfied by itself awesome OS, but couldn't help but kick myself for switching from an Android device every time I ran into a charging obstacle -which was happening enough to inconvenience my day-to-day. This cord made me feel a sense of satisfaction with not only it but my phone purchase again.

    Not what salesman said

    The salesmen told me that this cord would fast charge if plugged into a fast charger. Offered it as a replacement to the 10ft cable they sold me before (10ft was the only cable available the day I purchased phone) . I plugged this 4ft cable into my Samsung fast charge car charger and it says "slow charging." Don't sell me something just to sell, best buy mobile in altamonte has a limited selection of in stock items for this phone. I may still exchange this one, but it's a hassle to get there and find out they don't have what you're looking for...already returned first case (volume, power buttons "stuck"..told me it "Just needed to be broken in", glass screen protector (couldn't operate right side of screen, upon return was advised..Doesn't work well with a case and they didn't have the vinyl screen protector or means to install if they had) and the 10 ft cable purchased when I bought the phone.

    Must have for Moto Z Force

    The Moto Z Force is one of the new smartphones that has embraced the USB-C connector and I think that's great. However, the Turbo Charger that comes with the phone is a one piece affair. This means you can't use the included USB-C cable with your laptop because it doesn't disconnect from the power brick. It also makes me nervous carrying the Turbo charger in my messenger bag for fear of damaging the part where the cord connects to the plug. Being one piece also makes the myriad of USB chargers I've accumulated over the years useless. That's why I picked up this cable. Now I leave my Turbo charger at home plugged in next to my night stand and I carry this cord with an old USB plug in my bag. With this cord I can also connect my Z Force to my laptop. I recommend this to anyone that has USB-C charger that does not detach from the power plug.

    Used for Nintendo Switch

    First looked in the Nintendo Switch game section of the store for a cable to use in vehicle (doesn’t come standard w/the switch). Only found a pack that included cable, wall plug, & old style car charger (which is if no use in newer cars). Asked associate & was directed to different area of store. Less $ for just the cable (all I needed). Same manufacturer. This wasn’t marketed on box as working with Nintendo Switch, but exactly what needed. I consider the price tag higher than should be, so it’s 4/5 stars. I normally spend more time looking for best price before buying or even entering the store.

    This product for additional capabilities

    I purchased this Insignia™ - 4' USB Type A-to-USB Type C Charge/Sync Cable - Black because it was shown that other people who purchased the Samsung Galaxy 8+ also purchased this product. I am sure it is useful for those people seeking additional capabilities, but for my limited uses, I only need the charger which comes with the Samsung Galaxy 8+ and do not need this extra cable. On the other hand, make sure you buy the protective case and the invisible screen protector which are sold separately from the Samsung Galaxy 8+ as they are well worth the money spent to ensure your great phone does not get damaged.

    Solid Replacement Cable

    Posted

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    Bought these as a spare for the supplied USB->USB-C cable that came with my Bluetooth headphones. Glad I did as the cable is the only way to re-charge the phones and one of the cats managed to temporarily 'borrow' the OEM supplied cable. This cable works very well and had the added benefit of nearly a foot greater length. Would have given it 5 starts but I'm not sure the quality is as good as the original cable it substituted for. Found the original and put it back into service but I am definitely keeping this as a reliable and low-cost spare for emergency purposes.

    Charging cables for the car

    Well there's not much to say on this one other than if you have a charger at home you definitely want one in the car. And having an extra set of cables in your car is a very inexpensive investment and a good thing to have on hand. Just keep in mind according to what Samsung and the knowledgeable representatives at Best Buy have to say, if you're using this for one of the new Samsung phones you want to unplug it when it hits 100% so you don't damage your battery in the long run and that goes for any cable.

    I just bought a new Galaxy 8 and it has a USB - C connection. I wanted to buy a crossover cable and went to the store to locate one. There were very few to choose from but one of them was the Insignia Brand which I have found to always be first class. When I got it home however, I was very dissapointed to see that the cable was very thin. As I've found out the hard way, too thin a cable will mean little or no download of data. I'd return this one, but there were no better choices at the store. I'll locate another, heavier duty one someplace else.

    Neon Switch Charging Approved!

    We purchased a Neon Nintendo Switch (a unicorn to find when they first came out, but we got one!) and we wanted to see just how many impractical places we could take it as a gaming console and use it! Restaurants: yep! The Bank: Yep! The car: most definitely! But we had to charge it somehow since we weren't using it with the tv base. So we bought some cords online and they DIDNT work. So we went to Best Buy, told them our delema, and walked out with this here power cable. Didn't even have to question if it worked, as it did so immediately! Absolutely love the durability and feel of this cord when we need to charge our USB-C neon switch!

    Worked when another couldn't

    I just bought a car with Apple/Android Auto, which require the phone be plugged in. When testing it, I pulled out the cable I've been using for a year to charge my phone and plugged it in. It didn't work. So I ran down the street to Best Buy and bought this cable, just in case the problem was the cable. Sure enough, I learned that some cables are good enough to charge the phone but not good enough to carry the necessary data through. This one could handle the data.

    Good cable for your devices

    A good cable which I use for my Galaxy Note 8. Of course, it's very usable for almost any device including a tablet which requires a USB type A to C connection. This one is 4 ft. and I find this length more than adequate. Of course you can get another brand (name) cable, but why? This Insignia is cheaper in price but not in quality. I believe it will hold up to long-term use - especially since most electronic devices aren't made for "heavy duty" or ultra rugged use. (That is, devices aren't meant to be beaten up and are made to be, at least, semi-gently handled).

    Works well...kind of expensive

    I recently bought a new phone; a Samsung S9 Plus. This phone requires the latest USB cable/ connection for charging and data transfer. While I am pleased with the way the cable works and the fact that I don't have to figure out which way the cord inserts into the phone, I find the price for these cord accessories to be (in my opinion) on the expensive side of "fair value." In order to replace the cords in the various places I typically use them, it cost over $100 for five cords. To me, this seems excessive.

    Just a New Charger... That's it?

    So I am a little disappointed with this product, being that I am new to the C charger thing... I was excited that this could also sync all of my information to and from my media devices or TV... Well to my I'm surprised I should say it doesn't sync to or from any of my media devices and does not do the Quick Charge like it is supposed to. I guess it's okay as a backup charger but if you are looking for something that is quick and we'll actually sync your information pictures and videos to your devices and from your devices, you might want to try a different brand.

    Helps prolong battery on airplane with MacBook

    I intended on using this to charge my Macbook when I fly back and forth to Europe. It will charge only if the computer is shut down. Otherwise it simply prolongs battery life. I was able to use the laptop for about 8 hours and still had roughly 40% power. Suitable to I'd say 15 hours of continuous use which is more than enough. I can't fault the cable as much as the powered USB ports on the airplane since this same cable works when using a wall outlet usb brick. I recommend it.

    Actually I'm very happy with this simple purchase of phone cord. - I found myself in a situation just yesterday where I had run out of charge and didn't have my charging cord with me. I went to my car, got this out and found me one of the wall adapters (I was at my son's home) plugged it in and back in business. I just need to make it a point to carry a little adapter with me or in my car for if this happens again. - At first I thought I would have liked a shorter one, but actually this was a nice length. Well, hope this helps. :)

    Good charging cable

    This cable is durable and the perfect length. It is a different size than the last cable I had for my S6+, which I was bummed about because I bought a new car charger, but so far so good. If you want the S9+, you don't get a choice on what charging cable to use, so be prepared to pay for what you want. I have to take my cable everywhere with me because it is the only one I have to charge my phone right now, but it is fairly thick and holding up nicely so far.

    Excellent Cable

    I purchased a different Usb Type A-to-usb Type C from a different retailer, online, and it was terrible. It would not charge the phone quickly and sometimes didn't work with my computer. I purchased this cable from a local Best Buy and it is way better. My phone charges quickly like it does with the original cable and the quality seems very good. My computer also always recognizes my phone when I plug it in to my computer with this cable. It's quite a bit more expensive than other Usb Type A-to-usb Type C cables but you get what you pay for and it works great.

    Simple usb-c charging cable purchased for a friend visiting from out of town and had forgotten their charger at home! This cable worked as promised...but most of all, it was available immediately! This is why I love Best Buy! We went to several specialty cell phone stores (at my friend's insistence) first, with no luck! After much persistence, said friend finally relented and grudgingly went along to Best Buy with me. They were pleasantly surprised when this item was available! I think I have a new convert!

    This was a simple purchase. I had difficulty making sure that the cable ends matched my needs. The good news is that I had an associate who was very helpful and was willing to work with me to make sure I had the correct item. The USB cables seem to come in so many varieties (Printers, tablets, Apple Phones, Motorola Phones, micro). I need someone to verify that I have the correct item.
