First I recieved this item from the power user program, this is my unbiased review.
Upon receiving the package, it’s much smaller than I was expecting. Inside this box is two 3’ cables and the infamous Happy/ not Happy card.
Upon opening and inspecting the cable I see that it is thicker than my standard Samsung Galaxy S9+ cable, but it’s not as thick as my USB-C cable.
The build quality is top notch on the Anker cable, it features double braided nylon sheathing, aluminum ends, gold plated pins inside each end.
This cable has a 56k ohm resistor that allows for fast charging. Using my QC plug that came with my powerwave stand I got this for charge speed, which is slightly slower than my USB-C PD%
Now, this cable still underperforms when placed in a Power IQ socket as seen below.
My Initial impression was that the cable would be too thick and hard to manage, but after using it for a while now the cable is a perfect replacement for my Samsung cable. The cable holds its shape for the most part, but can easily be managed and the shape changed. Since the cable is thicker, but not crazy thick and coupled with the double braided nylon covering it can take some abuse. While I know I can easily break most cables, I could not break this just by pulling on both ends. I also bent and flexed the ends while p.k pulling and yanking on the cable and it has held up with no issues.
My only long term concern with these cables is that me yanking on them may have caused some damage, but so far testing with m th chargers and my Drok meter everything has been spot on.
So if your look g for some USB-C cables I would highly recommend this. And I hope that eventually we will see USB-C to C cables in the double braid configuration.
