Everything is looking good for it! It is supplying the same amount of mA that the original cable provided and the longer length makes charging and using much easier. I'm very happy with that cable.

Awesome Thanks going to get my brother to order me one as I don't have an Amazon account lol. 8 on Amazon UK for people that care, personally sounds like a good price for an item that looks high quality and has 2 years warrenty.

Would you mind posting the mA with this cable and with the original. Just curious too see the exact difference between the two even if it is 1mA lol.

I charged my tablet the last 2 nights via a 6 foot USB extension cable and the original factory power adapter and cable. Both nights left me with only a half charged battery in the morning. Tonight I decided to install a quick widget and I was shocked

can you name the widget you used 'cause literally every last app I've used grossly misreports the charging current (with a handful of them I even get negative values (as if negative absolute current makes any sense at all)

None of them make a difference to charge time although I wouldn't use the cheap ones for Odin and the like.

I thought there was cables out there that can charge the tablet faster or am I getting this confused with the plug

I take it that you didn't read the whole thread as this is completely incorrect and the subject was covered earlier. Long or thin cables will substantially increase the charge time.
