Re: Usb Cables


I buy mine from Amazon . My daughter is so hard on them, ruins the ends, so I look for the best deals I can.

Amazon works for most things, but if you need a specific size Monoprice is also a good alternative.

Re: Usb Cables


Agree with the above, they all have a short life when abused...buy in bulk.

Re: Usb Cables


Amazon basics are cheap come in usually packs of 3 or 5 and work great.

Re: Usb Cables


I normally hit up Parts Express whenever I need different cables. I've never had any problems with them.

Not all long cables will charge an iPad.

Re: Usb Cables


Are you sure the charger you are using is delivering the correct amps and voltage for an iPad?

Re: Usb Cables


I have been buying the Amazon Basic cables for years and have not had one fail yet, but I am not hard on them. You reminded me to order a black one to put in our Audi, so thanks!

Re: Usb Cables


For my USB c cables I like the Anker cables. For my iPad I found some nice nylon ones at target on clearance (6') the 10' I picked up at best buy and I think it was around $30.

Re: Usb Cables


I have found in this instance I go for quantity not quality. I have bought expensive chargers and they don?t last much longer than the $5 ones. So I just order a few of the cheap ones on amazon at a time.
