Default Oem usb cable and after market usb cable

So if I use the original usb cable that came with the device my phone will charge in about 3 or 4 hours. But if i use any after market usb cables it takes 5 to 6 hours I'm trying find our what is the difference between the two cables. Keep in mind I'm using the same oem charger with both cables.

Your stock charger is 2 amps the ones you are using are most likely 1 amp. You need to find other ones that are 2 amps also.

No I'm using the white 2 amp charger. I have narrowed it down to the cable I'm trying to see if there is something diffrent.

Charge only cables vs Charge and data cables. Has been thoroughly discussed in the forums. Go buy a charge only cable and you will see the fastest charging. Just don't try to use it for data. Guage of wires also has a lot to do with how much current can be carried.
