    Review for Anker Micro USB Cable (10ft/3m)

    I needed a slightly longer replacement USB cable for charging the OPO. Knowing that the cable needed to be no more than 24 AWG, I found this Anker cable, rated at 22 AWG. Bought it from Amazon.de

    Official website:

    I bought the 1.8m one, but there is a 3m version too.

    Charging Speed
    I connected various cables to the original charger that came with the OPO. I used Battery Monitor Widget Pro to observe the battery flow.

    Original OPO cable: -1070 mA
    Anker cable: -1069 mA
    Nexus 4 cable: -550 mA

    Data transfer
    A 2.13 GB TWRP backup took 68 seconds using the Anker cable. The OPO cable took 69 seconds.

    So, in conclusion.

    + Fast charge rate, that matches the OPO cable
    + Fast data transfer rate, that matches the OPO cable
    + Long :)

    - Nowhere as nice looking as the OPO cable

    Posting this as I know that others are looking for longer cables too.

    I also bought the Anker set. If you don't need all of them, gift them to friends, because they never know where to buy cables for a good price.
