I put this in general accessories, but I figured I would share this here too. Monoprice.com has a $10 off $30 coupon when you enter TAXACT217. I believe it's for new accounts only, but give it a shot anyway if you're a regular.
I've heard good things here at xda and elsewhere about the Premium cables as they allow your device to fully draw as much as it can with higher amp output chargers/adapters. I have a couple of good micro USB cables that work really well for both charge/data, and some crappy ones where despite having good 2A adapters, only pull 500mA on a good day, when the stars and moon align, and rainbows can be seen at night... This way I can make sure my Nexus 5 and my Qi chargers are utilizing the most they can.
10 Cables and the car charger came to $27.75 shipped to Polar Bear land with small package Canada post shipping.
Samsung ECB-DU4EWE is decent 5ft (151cm) cable. I get around 1650mA (Nexus 5 maximum allowed amperage) using it with 2A charger. Unfortunately the cheapest I found was here http://www.ebay.com/itm/321231245646 (you need to pick the option 'extra long 5 ft cable only'). It's around $8 with free shipping, so nowhere near the monoprice premium cable price range, but still it was the cheapest option for me (I'm living in Europe).
