    xtopheralan81 , Oct 17, 2014 :
    I've now purchased FOUR different cables (flat, braided, etc) that do NOT charge the OnePlus at the same speed as the OEM cable. They're all 1/4 the speed as verified in a few different charging widgets. As soon as I plug in the OEM cable it charges at full speed. Here is the last one I bought which claims to be AWG28 and looks like the OnePlus cable, but STILL doesn't charge as fast (1/4th again).

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/17143391922...49&var=470465819503&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Any idea on cables that DO charge at the full speed? I've bought the highest AWG I could find and they still aren't charging at full speed. This is using the OEM wall charger.

    Make sure they are rated to carry 2.1A across the cable before buying. I'd go for a better cable, below 28AWG like @gusuraman suggested.

    I'm looking for 5foot minimum. Any recommendations? The KOPI on Amazon is only around 3ft or I'd get it :(

    This guy makes them himself. Specifically designed to pull the highest AMPs your phone can handle and your charger can put out. It's a charging only cable, as he removes the data portion to enable this functionality. I just purchased one based on his screenshots of his nexus charge times. Pretty expensive for a 6 foot. I'll update when I receive it and use it.

    Try the Nilkin Cable. i'm using it to charge my OPO and it's as fast as original cable. i can't give you the link since Ali**** is banned. but you can search and find it.

    Thanks you for all your kind words. Our Kopi 20AWG 1M normal has sold out on Amazon.

    We have our new 20AWG reversible plug on Amazon now to replace the normal cable. It is 6.99USD on Amazon.
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OYQ4D4U

    You can still find the normal (non-reversible) 20AWG cable on Newegg.

    Our 2M is also available now on Amazon.

    Your cables are the fastest charging ones I have used. Do you have any longer than 3ft?

    Im sorry I feel like a nub. What in the hell is the difference between a reversible and a non-reversible cable?

    The larger usb end can be plugged into standard USB slot facing up or down. The micro end is still the same.
