Or rather, one that actually STICKS? I've used the HTC cable, Amazon's brand, Monoprice, ect. Can anybody recommend a brand that will actually stay in place consistently? Even with a bumper case on? Sick of he damn power cable falling out as soon as I pick up my device.

Maybe the problem is not in the cables, but rather in the port itself.

Yeah I have zero issues with any of the cables especially the HTC one. One problem I do have is with the headphone jack. All my headphones seem to come out easily but maybe that's just because the port is on the bottom

Mine stays in place fine with the htc cord. Is your case getting in the way of the plug?

Don't use the Samsung ones, they seem to fall off easier than all you mentioned. One that really sticks for me is the wire i got from my sony xperia. If you have the chance maybe stop by a Sony store and try them out. Although I'm not sure if you can buy them separately

I have no problems at all with the HTC adapter except for when I try to use it at it's maximum length. Where the wall adapter is and my bed it jusssst reaches. So if I am charging and want to play a quick game or surf the web at 1AM, the cord is at it's maximum length with my arm extended out a bit.. so any slight movement yanks it out of the wall or the phone, but that's entirely my fault.

I would recommend taking your device to the store and getting your charging port looked at. Also try taking your case off and try just handling the phone while charging, as mentioned above maybe its the case that's getting in the way of the cable.

It's rather tight in and out of my port. Almost to tight. I have to use a good amount of force to insert and remove.
