AmazonBasics USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Cable (6 feet/1.8 meters)

  • Uses less power but has increased power output

  • 10 times faster transfer rate than USB 2.0

  • Backward compatible with USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices

LEARN MORE

USB Version Numbers: There are different version numbers (1.0, 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0). This indicates their transfer speed. The higher the version number, the faster they can work. However, to get the full power, the “host,” the device, and the cable must have that version. If not, the lowest USB version in the chain will control the speed.

For example,if your computer has a 2.0 USB port, your cable is 3.0, and your phone is 3.0, you will achieve 2.0 speed. If all three (computer, cable, and phone) all have 3.0 then you will have 3.0 speed.

To stiff alot of stress on the connector. does not stay connected, when i plug the cable to the computer it travels to far and disconnects.

I only bought the 3 ft to give it a try with my Samung Galaxy Note 3, and it works great, so if your in the look for an extra usb cable this is your place. Again it works great with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. no problems no complaints. and great price, I bet when Samsung put these out for sale, at leat 30 dlls for the 5 footer that came in the box, I dont mind it being black and no samsung logo, It looks better with my Black Note 3

The first thing I do with a USB cable is test its performance. I just copied a 1.4 GB file from my WD 2 TB external to my laptop C drive and got 110 MB/sec performance. This REPLACES a "cables 2 go" USB 3 A to micro B cable that I bought on Amazon earlier this week. That other cable got about 30 MB/sec. Buy this one instead.

This cable is much thicker than other usb 3 cables I have seen which to me means good construction and quality bandwidth.

The ends are gold plated, both ends of cable.

This does markedly improve performance of file transfers between usb 3 external drives and usb 3 ports or expansion cards.
This is a really solid cable and is well worth the price.

The only thing I noticed is it is a little hard to twist the ends into place if you happen to pick the cord upside down and have to reposition to insert into the port. That is only reason I did not give this 5 stars.

It's a really solid and nice performing cable. Buy it.

This cable is really hard to beat for the money. It is clearly well made, feels solid, and uses heavier gauge wire.

And therein lies the rub.

I'm using this cable as a second power cord for my Samsung Note 3 phone. I bought it for use in my car, so I opted for the 3-foot length.

The problem: At the 3-foot length, the heavier gauge wire makes this cable much less flexible than might be demanded in some tighter in-car uses. This puts more stress on the phone connection and on the USB connection in the car, which might damage both in the long run.

I don't normally advocate for more flexible cabling and have always preferred a heavier gauge for its robustness, but in a short cable, it may be a disadvantage to be so rigid.

One of those things no one considers until after the purchase.

Excellent cable for the money, but this one caveat may apply in your case and is worth considering.

The charger/sync cable that came with my Galaxy Note 3 does not connect tightly especially with my Otterbox Defender case. These Amazon cables fit & have a more secure connection - don't fall out like the original one does. They are a heavier duty cable &, therefore, not as flexible as the original. High quality - I prefer them to the original.

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 3 Feet Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Cable looks good - just exactly how it looks in the picture and as described. Plugs in well and secure- my data transmits across it with no issues.

Word of caution - this is USB 3.0 compliant. While the connectors for the A plug are on 3.0 can plug into 2.0 sockets, the Micro B connector is not compatible with USB 2.0 devices...it is a completely different shape and has more pins. So if you're looking at this cable to plug any device into your computer or the like, make sure this is what you want. It also won't work as a replacement cable for your USB phone charger that takes micro B (unless they start making phones specifically with the 3.0 connector which I have not yet seen)

Great cables but - BEWARE: The plastic housing around the heads/ends of these cables are extremely thick and if you have a case on your phone like I do then they may not be allowed to fit!

Very beefy and therefore durable but seriously fat!
