I want cables that are the same quality as Original micro usb cables for charging tablets and stuff.

I keep buying junky cables on eBay and they're all pulling ~500mah max from a 2Amp charger.


Is monoprice the only reliable place?

Monoprice or Amazon Basics are your best bet.

To get 2 amp charging from usb the data pins need to be shorted either on the cable or at the charger so it tells the device its a charging cable so it'll pull the full 2 amps. Note:this doesn't apply to apple products as they do it differently.

Oh and i think the device needs to support 2 amp charging over usb anyway. You can't force feed it 2 amps over usb.

If you're talking about a Samsung or another Android device, they don't pull 2 A from the charger even with the cable provided in the box. It's closer to 1.1 or something.

Well, this won't do... there's hardly room for three in here. I think it's time to make a little more... space.
