I had a question. I know our phones can charge using a standard Micro USB cable but will it charge at the full 2 amps or is a USB 3.0 cable required to utilize the full 2 amps?

I am using original Samsung charger.

Thanks!

It is the wall unit that puts out the 2 amp

Yup. Using the Samsung wall charger. Will using a standard Micro USB cable charge at the full 2 amps?

Yes. As per Samsung a long time ago the cable does not play into changing just the wall adapter

There are some differences between cables cuz I have an app on my phone that monitors the amperage and it differs with some cheap cables

Absolutely, have USB 2 charging cable that came with my BT headphones and charging rate is much slower than original cable.

I agree but I have yet to run into a cheap cable that will slow down my charging to the point I noticed.
