    Samsung's New A to USB, Type C Device Cable

    I'm giving this 3 stars (instead of 5) because I'm not exactly happy with Samsung for REQUIRING us to use this new "Type C" device cable on our new Samsung Galaxy S10 phones. It's barely 2mm wider than the old standard micro USB cable that we charge nearly all of our other devices & older Samsung phones with. I understand this new cable uses some sort of faster new technology, but... did Samsung really need to pull an Apple on us with this move? Couldn't they fit their new tech into the standard size micro USB cable that we all own a ton of already? This new cable requirement makes all our old micro USB cables useless for charging our Galaxy S10, S10e & up phones. Since each phone only comes with one of these new charging cables in the box, we must now purchase additional ones separately (this item) for use in our cars, office, kitchen, or wherever else we wish to have a spare charging cable, because otherwise we will need to carry the one that came with the phone everywhere we go. But we still need our older micro USB cables to charge all of our other devices AND our other older Samsung phones. Everyone's needs will be different. Some of you may not mind unplugging your one cable wire & carrying it with you from room to room & into your car, etc. I personally didn't want to have only one cable, so I had to buy a bunch of these extra 'new style' cables (sold separately) for myself & my family because we all upgraded to the Galaxy S10, and we all needed extra cables for our cars, offices, etc. We still need to keep & carry a regular micro USB cable for all our other devices, so this is a bit of a pain in the neck (i.e. Apple'esque). The only 'pros' that I can report about this new style of cable are: 1) The small end does NOT have those 2 tiny prongs on it (the ones that occasionally break off from our micro USB cables), 2) The small end is no longer a trapazoid shape. It's an elongated oval shape which therefore allows it to be inserted facing up or down (no more fumbling in the dark or feeling with your fingertips to determine which way to insert it into your phone's port). The 'cons' I can report are: 1) I feel like Samsung pulled an Apple on us with this change, 2) It is not yet available in longer lengths (3' is too short for many of us), 3) It is not yet available in other types of stores; only in stores where the Samsung Galaxy S10 is sold, and 3) I now have to own non-interchangeable USB charging cables for my S10 & all my other devices, meaning I must have one of each type in my bedroom, car, office, etc. I expect that this new type of USB cable will become the wave of the future in a few years, but for now, it's a pain because we still need to use the micro USB cables for charging everything else we own such as our older phones, mp3 players, wireless speakers, wireless ear pieces, wireless everything -- except for our Samsung Galaxy S10 series phones, which require this new Type C device cable. My advice... Buy a few spares! Because as of right now, if you accidentally leave home without the one your S10 came with, you won't be able to buy one unless you are near an open BestBuy or a phone store! It's an expense we were not expecting, and I now need 2 different types of USB cables in my home & car & office, but.... I suppose this is all a part of "growing & changing with new technology". One day in the future, this will be the standard USB cable for all devices. But for now, I would advise everyone to buy a few spares for all the places you use 'em... and one extra in case one gets lost or left behind in a hotel! Have fun folks :)

    Perfect replacement charger for my S8+

    After experiencing more than my share of 3rd party brands, I decided to stick with original brands to avoid dysfunctionality. I had my phone plugged in to the original charger which I've had for nearly 2 years, and my kitten saw the wire and mistook it for some yarn. Needless to say, it wasn't Samsung's fault the wire no longer worked. But with the original one working for so wrong, that was testament enough to prove the quality of the product and I'm so glad I got an original brand replacement.

    The 3 stars for color

    I purchased a new Samsung S8+ phone. I was sold the accessories. When I finally unwrapped my new gadgets, I found the car charger I was sold was not compatible with the rest of the component. I returned it for the correct one. I'm not sure what exactly had happened, but they only had a white cable and all the cables I was given with my phone are black. So now I have two colors. They gave me the option of ordering the correct color, but I really am bad at returning items and it was going to be more of a hassle than it was worth. But I am still hating the two colors.

    Just Like Factory Charger

    This charger breaks very easily if you're not careful with it. It's just like the factory version. The only way you'll get a long life span is if you plug it in and leave it alone. Otherwise if you use your phone in bed, in the car, on the couch with it plugged in, you run the risk of bending the tip and disabling your fast charging or charging in total. I found better luck buying a 5 dollar 10ft long cable from Five Below.

    After buying a new Samsung cell phone which changed from using micro USB charging cords to USB-C charging cords, I bought several of these new USB-C cords to ensure I always had one available in my home, office, car, and laptop bag. The cord works as expected, and has been reliable so far without any problems. I like getting the Samsung brand to ensure maximum reliability.

    This is the new type of cord that is needed for our two newest Samsung Phones. Need them everywhere so never out of battery (car, work, home). Didn't realize this when we got the phones that none of the old micro -USB cords would work. Reusing with the old rapid charger wall / car plug-ins from the last Samsung phones...so just the cords are needed. Quality is good. No issues.

    I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S9 and needed backup cables beyond the one provided with the phone. Yes, you can buy third-party cables that will work, but you can bet Samsung after-market cables designed to work with Samsung products, such as the S9, will optimally work with 100% reliability. Plus this Samsung cable costs less than the Insignia equivalent!

    Cord to the rescue

    I was going on vacation and didn't want to risk losing my manufacturers cord that came with the phone. Have purchased other cords but they didn't charge phone completely overnight. This cord came to my rescue. Charges phone pretty quick and I never worry about having a dead battery as carry with me daily and with a power pack I am always ready for every picture opportunity.

    Charger for a recalled phone Note7

    This is not the charger I needed. I needed the USB for the note 4 and it is for the note 7 which serves no purpose for me considering the note 7 was recalled. It probably is a decent cord, its just not what I needed. And the worst part is I couldn't even return it/exchange it because I purchased it as a bundle deal w some otter boxes. If I return it I have to pay full price for otter boxes so I just recycled it, whatevs.

    Purchased when on sale and had shipped to my home. Shipped in time promised and the cord fits like a glove. I bought a few cheap cords from ebay and they dont charge as well as this cable. Main reason I purchased was to use on the remote of my Mavic pro and controller. The cheap cable lost connection all the time and this one works perfectly. Glad I bought a few of them!

    Charges Slowly

    Advertised as quickly charging, but that's not the reality. I used this cable to charge my smart phone while using G.P.S. navigation on a road trip, and it only seemed to slow the rate at which my phone battery discharged. I see no quick charging icon appear on my phone when using this cable, versus the stock cable. Use this, if you must, as a last resort if you have hours to charge your device.

    With new HTC phone howWONDERFUL they are to have changed the charging cord. I really like not having to look at which way to plug it in NOT !!!!. jlJust another way to rip off the customers again. They don't think they are making enough money now it seems. If the adapters weren't available we would have to throw all of our old cords out. Not anymore thanks to the adapters. Screw you HTC.

    I purchased this cable when my aftermarket cables would not work properly with a new android auto stereo that was installed in my car. Others that were having issues suggested using original samsung cables would solve the problem. This did the trick. The cable works well and has a better fit than my non samsung cables.

    I went to Best Buy looking for one of the cheap USB-C cables (Dynex maybe?) as I just needed something to leave in my car. When I passed through the Samsung section, I noticed their USB-C cable was actually the cheapest in the store. After getting an employee to confirm it wasn't one of those extremely short sync cables for a laptop, I purchased it and it works perfectly.

    I am often out and about for 12 to 15 hours a day. I don't want to have to worry about my phone losing power. I also don't want to have to worry about remembering to bring an extra cord with. This purchase was great because I can leave it at work, and plug my phone in whenever I need to.

    I bought this wire for my phone simply to use in my car for the Android Auto feature. It prevents me from having to take my home charger back and forth from the car and I just leave it in there. I like it because it's specifically for Samsung and it's still a fast charging wire even though it's not plugged into the wall port.

    With my change to a new type c phone, I just needed to change out a couple cords and use my existing wall chargers. Other than wishing the cords were black to match my wall units, there were a great buy, especially when best buy price matched another retailer

    Better Quality Cable makes a Difference

    I winced when I saw the price difference between this cable and a "comparable" after market cable. I have to admit, it is a better quality cable delivering a faster charge and sturdier at the connection points. Not happy with the price, but satisfied with the value quality brings.

    I only buy the Samsung name brand cables. With the newer generation of cables and fast charging, I only want the best cable around. I want the fastest, best quality around. The Samsung cables are the best. I will say that the other major smartphone brand cables are so sketchy. Going with the Samsung Android platform is far superior.
