Good cable, as long as you don't mind the light.

360 Mobile Solutions Smart Micro USB LED Cable Powerful 2.1A Output / B00FYIB7F0
I bought this fast-charge cable for use with my chargers which claim fast-charge capabilities (including a car charger I recently received) so that I could be sure that any lag in charging wasn't the fault of my older cables. This cable from Mobile Solutions has worked really well for me so far, with a variety of chargers and devices, so I'm really pleased with it. The price is a little steep (though check across all the colors because some of them cost more than others), but if you're not seeing the performance you'd expect from your chargers, this may be worth the investment.
I'm not sure why one reviewer said they were getting a slow charge on this, but one thing you do need to be aware of is that not all chargers charge fast. And not all devices (especially older devices) can charge fast. Basically in my experience, for a fast charge you need 4 things: (1) a device that can accept a fast charge, (2) a charger than can deliver a fast charge, (3) a cable that can carry a fast charge, and (4) a connection between device, charger, and cable which *doesn't* put the device into a data transfer mode which usually provides only a minimal trickle charge.
The lighted tip on this cable is something you'll probably either love or hate. It's convenient for letting you know if the device is charging, and if the connection is good--the cord lights up blue when not connected and red when connected and charging. On the other hand, if you're using this in your bedroom when you're trying to sleep, it'll probably be way too bright. I've been using this in the car with a car charger where the light doesn't bother me.
Note that this cable is about 3 feet long.
