Default QUALITY Long Charging Cable?

Ok im sure we are all sick of cheap cables that fall apart in DAYS!

Anyone know of a place to buy something quality that will actually hold the amperage over a longer length cable? Or where have you had good luck not spending an arm and leg for a quality cable like retail stores want.

At home i like having the longer cable for obvious reasons , and work using my OEM cable.

I would like to know this too as I break cables all the time. None are as good quality as the one supplied in box. I need a spare for my girlfriends house I've been through at least 5.

I get most of my cables from Monoprice and they're always good quality and last a while:

I use these mediabridge cables and they are very nice and work very well. They come in 3 ft, 6ft (what I have), and 10 ft

24/28 awg cables will not fast charge the G2. Not the sprint model anyways. I found some Link Depot 22awg cables on new egg in 6' length recommended on another thread. Ill post back when they come in. They are about $3.89 each if you buy more than one.

All others users say they work great. We shall see.
Sprint LG G2 >> Current Owner >> Stock, Debloated, Rooted, TWRP'ed
Sprint HTC One >> Current Owner >> Stock, Unrooted (Till Kit Kat Comes)
Sprint Moto Photon >> Current Owner >> Rooted, Docked, Converted to XMBC & Android Media Box
TMO HTC G2 >> Past Owner >> Imo, The best Phone ever made design wise.
