Is there a particular cable that works best for charging?
Nah don't worry about the crapple part of it, every port on it will charge at the "rated" speed with a normal USB cable on an Android device. In reality, it's about 80% rated from what I've seen, so like the 2.1 I've seen 1.7 out of, but that's not bad. I've charged my OG Note, LG G2, Nexus 7 2012 etc, all charge fine. Not as fast as their stock chargers, but the G2 charges at 1.5-1.7A so it's more than fast enough.
No special cable needed, you don't need a "charging" cable for sure. But there's a whole thread about the best cables to use for the G2. It's very picky about voltage sag, and cheap or very long cables it will drop down to a slower charge regardless of how much power the charger can provide. You might look at that thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2460881
) if you're having specific issues or want to pick up a specific cable.
I haven't had any cable problems myself, except for connectors being too loose or too tight (G2 connector is weird).
