love these cables
How do you improve on a fairly simple product? That's what I wondered when I purchased these cables. I'm usually a big fan of the Amazon BASIC brand, for quality and value, but these cables are really a step above. The small indentation on the plugs are helpful and just feel good.The reinforcing where the plug and cord meet is nice, as I've thrown away many a cable that failed here. Somewhat hard to describe but overall, these cables have a great 'feel' to them.
Excellent USB cables
I needed some microUSB cables and there a plethora to choose from. These were priced competitively and I have had really good experience with RAVPower portable battery packs and chargers. This was my first time purchasing a cable product from them. The build quality is really good. I really like the cable thickness, not too thick but not too skinny. Amazon basics feel really skinny to me and the ends feel really square with sharp corners. They both are fairly competitive when it comes to pricing but their cables are a lot better quality. What really surprised me was each cable was tied with Velcro. It’s a small detail but really useful. I was really surprised They didn’t provide a picture with the Velcro straps. They really do bend like they advertise. It’s a not huge deal but I find it useful. If anyone cares about packaging it is packaged very nicely. Each cable is in a plastic sleeve with no tape or twisty ties. The cables slip right out. All packaging is recyclable. I’ve had excellent customer service with them so I have no doubt that they stand behind their products. I purchased a USB charger from them and one of the ports wasn't working properly. I sent an email to customer support and I received a reply that they needed my address so they could ship me a replacement. They didn’t ask when it was purchased and didn’t require/hassle me to send the defective product to them. If anyone cares about packaging, which I do not, it is packaged very nicely. Each cable is in a plastic sleeve with no tape or twisty ties. All packaging is recyclable. I received these cables at a discount in exchange for a review.
Who's can't use a 6ft micro USB cable...
OEM USB cables that come with my equipment are perfectly fine; I rarely look to replace them just to get something better. But if they do fail it's usually because flexing at a connector end has broken. Doesn't happen often but a cheap cable is more apt to do so. I had two reasons to look for replacement USB cables. One; I do have a cable that is in imminent danger of breaking at the connector end. Two; my dog chewed the micro USB end of my primary cable and now it fitment is not so stable... I've bought a lot of RAVPower products so they are my first look for replacement cables. Upon look and feel, clearly they are premium USB cables, and the price is right. They are packaged in a unique box rather than some unlabeled plastic bag; that tells me RAVPower considers it a premium product. What I like the most is that there is a 6ft cable in the set; that long cable has been very useful indeed... Kudos to RAVPower. Again.
Quite a bit better than your avaerage micro USB cable
Compared to the regular usb cables, even those that feature extended protection against breaking where the cable enters the actual plug, these seem to be much more durable. They come with a small velcro strap to keep them neatly bundled, and feature a nice coating on the plugs, that makes it comfortable to touch. The longer area around the part where the cable enters the plug makes me feel that these offer superior protection against bending and breaking in the long run. Time will tell, but for now I can totally recommend these!
Greatest Deal Ever!
Let me start by saying that I love RAVPower! Every time I have ever dealt with this company, they have been fast, friendly, and honest! I had originally purchased a 5-pack of cables from them almost a year ago that are still kicking today, but definitely had some wear and tear. I was offered a set of these cables at a discount in exchange for a completely honest review. First, let me say, WOW! These cables are tough! You can definitely feel the strong in these cables just by picking them up! They come wrapped with velcro straps so that you make consistently wrap them correctly! I found these detail to be super great, considering a work as a sound engineer's assistant and I constantly use velcro to wrap large microphone cables and XLR's. They connect well and are strong enough to support fast charging on all my devices! That being said, I did have one cable tip bend and stop working. I contacted RAVPower through Amazon and explained the situation along with some pictures, and they made it clear that this a rare defect and they would ship me a new cable. Well, I received a cable yesterday. Actually, an entire new set of cables. These guys do not mess around when it comes to customer service. All-in-all, these are excellent cables with astonishing value and quality, all at a great price. I look forward to continue doing business with this company for years to come!
