This is specifically for the right angle variant as I have not seen or purchased the others.

Every other aspect of this cable(length, flexibility, right angle at the micro usb end) is great. However be aware that either because of the small gauge of the wire(which allows its flexibility) ,some internal mechanism or wiring defect, or just these things in addition to the extra length of the canle without added voltage to compensate, the cable is not capable of charging at a full 1A.

I used multiple internally shorted AC adapters which charge at a full 1A with other cables and registers as AC with the Android OS but according to the charge times I am used to with my phone and the android applications that monitor current I seem to be capped out at 500-700mAh with this charger.

This may not be a deal breaker for some but this fault should be advertized in the product description. If you plan on charging your phone while in use then this cable is not for you. As for charging regularly at night then this should not pose a huge issue as the phone will have ample time to complete its charging cycle regardless.

Style Name: Left AngleSize Name: 6 ft Verified Purchase
I purchased this cable to run from a 12V to USB car adapter to my smart phone dock in my car. The angled head is great and looks really sleek connected to my HTC Thunderbolt. However, the fairly thin 6ft cable is unable to handle the full rapid-charging current (950mA) which the phone can use, and instead seems to top out at 600mA or so. If I am really using my phone (GPS and streaming music over bluetooth) this can result in very slow charging or even very gradual discharging. Swapping it with another cheap yet slightly beefier micro-usb cable solved the problem, but this was after I bought another 12V-USB plug thinking mine had gone bad (it had not).

The build quality on the connectors is great and the cable works perfectly fine for transferring data and charging via USB, so it has found a home in my laptop bag.

I know that current over 500mA isn't in the USB specification, but if you are buying this for a smartphone you should be aware this cable may not charge your phone as quickly as other cables do.

I bought this cable to use with my Google Chromecast. Sure, they give you a cable to power your Chromecast but, if your television has a spare USB that can be used for power, the supplied cord is entirely too long for most televisions that have the usb ports nearby the hdmi ports. - I bought this 6" cable, which works as well but it was a bit more snug than I anticipated. I thought the 6" cable, when I bought it would be fine - and it was tight - because of the way it is measured - I now know it is END TO END including PLUG HEADS ON BOTH ENDS) - I also ended up buying an 8" cable which isn't as taught for my purpose and distance on my tv. Keep in mind that 8" is end to end... including the plug ends. But there is nothing wrong with this cable if this is the length you need.

Good price, good length for recharging at work. If you don't want miles of extra cable to get tangled, this is great.

My wife has a kindle fire and she has had to replace it after just a few months because the straight micro usb connector is quite long and the mere act of holding the kindle while plugged in put pressure on the port and loosened it to the point where you had to fiddle with it for nearly an hour until you got lucky and made a connection so you could charge the device then gently put the device down so as not to disturb the loose cable and hope the connection held up till the kindle was charged. Now the whole point of using the Kindle Fire on ac was that the wifi connection drains the battery FAST so my wife uses it plugged in for extended use.

The startech angled cable makes a tight snug fit that does not put pressure or tug on the port when moving around and it's very short; only sticks out about 1/2 of an inch when plugged in. The straight jack that came with the Kindle was very long like 2 inches plus the cable hanging down from it and was constantly bumping into something and pulling on the kindle port. My wife pairs the cable with a usb to ac adapter/charger she got at Walmart for charging or running the device on ac.

The cable really has only two downsides depending on if you get a left or right angle you will block the headphone jack which is a problem if you connect to speakers or the cable will block the power button which is really not an issue just unplug the jack to turn on or restart the Kindle then plug it back in again. The other downside is the cable is thin so you have to be gentle with it. Just don't go yanking it around and it should be fine. If it ever does fail...well I only paid $7 for the 6 ft cable shipping and tax included so no big deal. So if you use headphones or speakers a lot get the right angle otherwise get the left to not block the power button.

As some people have mentioned on here, the cable between the connectors was shorter than I expected. I dont know why I expected it, but I thought for some reason that the six inches were the cable length itself, excluding the connectors. Instead its six inches from USB to USB connector. Which is what I should have known, really.

The little cable is well made, and Ive used it for charging/data transfer with no problems.
