Default [Q] Use of unoriginal micro usb cable

So recently my device started to charge very slowly, so slowly that if I used my device while charging, the battery precentage would decrease. So I've tried a different micro usb cable(not manufactured by Samsung) plugged to my original Samsung data traveller adapter and it charged properly.
so my question is: is there a risk to the device/battery by using the unoriginal micro usb cable?

Hi, you can download a app to see the charge value. Maybe the Samsung cable is faulty

Samsung cable is faulty very often. I donīt see any problem with another problem

If it would, your phone wasnīt charging
Samsung Galaxy SIII
