Default Monoprice.com $10 off $30 deal until 3/7/2014

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.

Premium 6ft and 3ft USB to Micro USB Cables

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.

*Edit: Updated with new discount code.

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).

How do you measure the current draw? The apps from the play store seem inconsistent.

Not with existing customers. You can just use a different email address, or sign out as a guest and it will work just fine though.

Also, that code has expired (even though they said March 7th)...

This one works: TAXACT217
