Thumbs up Extra Charging Cables

Hello, everyone. I just bought a new cable for my S 5 for extra charging- for a car charger in my car, and for a cable in my computer at work. While I know these are ubiquitous, I think this brand is high quality for the price. Here's a link, check em out. They charge my phone very quickly and efficiently, which is terrific for me, since I am on my phone CONSTANTLY all day for work.
I have been, and always shall be, your friend.

Its flat and says compatible with Galaxy S5, that's about it. I use the spare Western Digital cable that came with my hard drive in the car, there is nothing special about one quality USB3.0 over another.

Yes there is. The OEM cable that comes with the phone goes in the port perfect, not loose and not tight. It is not too thick and not too thin.
The knockoffs I bought from China for $2 each go very tight and I have to push. They are too thick and I don't have the option to switch to USB 3.0 on my phone but they do have a blue USB 3 plug. So, not all the cables are the same.

Knockoffs from china are not quality though, I did not say anything about all cables.

Yeah, the cheap China ones....well, you get what you pay for. But i posted these because of how affordable they are, and how high quality they are. (To answer everyone's questions)

No, I was just clarifying. Haha, I don't perceive anything as an attack unless it is explicit. Haha.

Have you found any OEM quality cable + charger(piece that cable plugs into for wall socket)?

I may end up buying this cable.
