Your phone may charge slower with this cable
This review is from: StarTech USB2HABM6LA 6 ft. Black Mini USB Cable - A to Left Angle Mini B
Pros: I've been using two of these cables for a few months. It's well made and the right angle is a very nice feature.
Cons: BUT, if you are using this cable to charge your cell phone from a wall charger (as opposed to a computer), you should be aware that this cable cannot provide rapid charging. This occurs on my Nexus 4 and my wife's Samsung S3. There are several Android apps that allow you to monitor the amount of mA (miliamps?) being pulled by the phone while charging, and using the stock charger that came with the phone, this cable appears to max out at around 580 mA (and is more consistently in the 200-300 mA range). This occurs on both phones using both cables. If I swap out this cable with the stock USB cable that came with the phone, it immediately jumps up to 900+ mA and the phones will charger much faster. Just an issue to be aware of, and one I would like to see the manufacturer address.
