I use a 2m aftermarket cable to charge my htc one in the bedroom, genuine short cable I keep for the car but I need a long cable for bedroom. Can you get a long genuine htc cable. Or how about if i use the original cable along with a usb extension, will it still flag as slow charging and fake charger...?

The cable you bought is a data cable, 28awg cable. You need 24awg if you want it to charge like a normal cable.

Are you using an HTC OEM AC to USB charger? If you are not, then that might be why you are getting that slow charge message.

i've got this and it charges really well, takes about an hour to charge from ~50%.

however it could be a combination of this cable and the Anker 5Port 40w charger.

Finding it hard to get a cheap cable in the UK. Amazon UK is near 30. I have found this one which specifies 28/24 but is still quite expensive...anybody see any cheaper for 28/24awg...

It probably is a 24awg cable. Not because of the charger since the the current would be limited by the thickness of the cable. Like I said, it's a simple case of buying the correct cable. OP your phone will charge slow with a DATA cable which is usually 28/28AWG. You need 24/28AWG (24 for 5V and 28AWG for data transfer). A good google search will find you these quite easily. Amazon is probably best bet

To be honest..
I probably wouldnt bother with thicker cables. I mean it will help but only a small amount. Install a Kernal like elementalX to enable the qualcomm fast-charge feature that HTC suppresses stock.

No, they make a lot of difference. What he bought, is a USB cable initially, one which probably wasn't advertised as a 'charging cable' more a data cable. So they have a much thinner wire because 5v is not going through. Your average USB charging cable provided for mobile phones is 24AWG, with 28AWG cable for data, 'data only cables' off ebay are 28AWG and 28AWG (higher the number, thinner the wire), these take hours to fully charge a phone
