Make sure your smartphone never runs out of juice with these charging cables

Did you lose or break your Android's Micro-USB cable? We can help. Below you'll find a list of some the best Micro-USB chargers on the market, and some of them have undergone vigorous testing, like the Lumsing Micro USB 3ft Premium Android cable, which has been tested by being bent 10,000 times. Others like the AmazonBasics 2.0 Micro-USB to USB cable have undergone designs that enable a high-speed connectivity and data transfer via gold or copper plated heads. Read on to find out which Micro-USB cables will help juice up your Android phone.

The iSeeker Durable 6.6ft/2m Nylon Braided Tangle-Free Micro-USB cable is designed to charge whatever Micro-USB device you plug it into, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, MP 3 player, etc.

The three-pack iSeeker bundle is a 6.6-foot cable that has a durable, flexible cord jacket to suit a variety of everyday connection needs. The cable offers a high-speed charge and sync, so you can enjoy charge times that are eight percent faster than most standard alternatives with a 480Mbps data transfer. The connector heads are compact, heat-resistant and are made of stainless steel, so it’s easy to securely fit.

The cords have been tested with a 3,500+ plus bend life span. Some Amazon.com users have reported that this bend life span isn’t enough compared with other more durable cables. Despite this, the company offers a one year warranty guarantee and customer service. Colors come in black, golden, green, orange, multi-color (orange, red, blue, green, yellow), pink, white, black and silver.

The Lumsing Micro USB cable is three feet and has thick gauge wiring and reduced cable resistance to enable the fastest possible charge via any USB charger, plus data transfer. The company claims that charge times are up to eight percent faster than most standard cables and that it has a 480Mbps data transfer via backwards-compatible USB 2.0.

Though the cable itself is thin, it offers a top durability quality similar to other cables on the list. It has reinforced stress points, which allow for over 10,000 bends in its lifespan. Many Amazon.com users praise the cable for its dense coating, which protects the cable from any damage and contributes to better performance down the line. Other Amazon.com users warn that the connecting pins inside the cable are fragile and can flatten out, which will hurt its strong connectivity, so it’s important to treat this budget cable with care.

Lumsing offers a free 12-month warranty that begins on the date of purchase. If there are any product quality issues, the company has a toll-free customer service number.

Amazon.com seems to have a knack with making top-notch products. The AmazonBasics 2.0 Micro-USB to USB cable is listed on Amazon.com as the No. 1 best seller in USB cables. And due to its high data transfer speeds and careful design, it makes it the best cable on the list for connectivity.

The AmazonBasics 2.0 Micro-USB to USB cable is six feet long, and is ideal for charging Android phones and tablets or connecting with PC peripherals such as hard drives or printers. The USB 2.0 Cable supports up to 480 Mbps transmission speed and comes with a gold-plated connector to resist corrosion for signal purity. Due to its compact lightning connector head, the cable fits well with nearly all-Android smartphone cases, and won’t cause any clutter or interference.

The only draw back that the cable seems to have is its durability. Some Amazon.com users have reported that the cable’s jacket and head aren’t very durable, and that the lifespan averages out to about 18 to 24 months. Ideally, this cable is best for those that want a high-speed connection with compatibility for their devices at an affordable price. Amazon.com offers a one-year warranty with the cable.

You won’t always find charging cables designed with their own retractable reeling device. If you’re tired of the tangle you’ll often face with wires, Winsword Multi Charger Cable Retractable 4-in-1 Universal USB Charger is the way to go.

Winsword Multi Charger Cable Retractable 4-in-1 Multifunctional Universal USB Charger is a 3.3-foot long cable that is designed to fit with most mobile phones on the market. It includes four connecting cables including Micro-USB, lightning cable, mini USB, and a 30 pin (for older iPhone models.) It weights only 3.2 ounces, and due to its contraction capability, it is small enough to be able to fit in your pocket.

It’s advised that you don’t pull from one side of each cable, but from their ends. Some Amazon.com users said it's one of the handiest cable systems they’ve purchased, while others reported that the cable isn’t ideal for fast charging, and that the retractable wheel isn't built for rough handling. The company provides a 30-day money back guarantee and one-year warranty.
