This will allow you to charge micro USB smartphones, tablets and other devices such as the Raspberry Pi, Google Nexus or Blackberry Playbook at full speed from a powerful charger or computer USB socket.
Updated 8th September 2014 - the 150cm and 250cm cables are now 22AWG, which is significantly lower resistance than typical 26 or 28 AWG cables (lower is better with AWG ratings). This allows faster charging for devices which charge at more than 1A, such as tablets and large smartphones. Our 30cm uses 24AWG but has a lower overall resistance since shorter cables have lower resistance, so this is the very fastest way to charge high power devices.

I play a lot of Ingress on my phone so an external battery (we call them powercubes) is a must have. I have Nexus 5 and it needs alot of power. Before I had problems with cubes charging the phone slowly while playing. With this wire I can play and charge my phone very very fast. Alot if my teammates also bought it after my recommendation and they all love it. This wire charges my phone 3-5x faster than original wire that came with the phone.

Bought a 150cm version to use in conjunction with a new mains socket that has 2 built in USB output ports. It was an instant improvement when charging my mobile phone due to the more convenient length and the fact that the phone charged up as if using the actual mains charger whereas the oem usb cable showed 'slow charging'.
Well worth buying.

I bought this to use with a high-power charger (Anker 24W) in the car. It works very well (it charges battery, even while using navigation system).
Also works well with my desktop charger at home (similar charging performance to original cables, and much better than a cheap cable from ebay).
Only downside is the micro usb connector seems a little loose in the phone. Hope it doesn't get any worse.

It would be good to see some more accurate info in the specs for this cable. "for high speed 2A charging" is simply untrue in a real situation.
I brought 2 of these as my LG G3 needs around 1.5A to fast charge. After seeing no improvement over other non stock cables I got my workshop PSU and USB Ammeter and did some tests. The most I could draw was 700-800ma which is actually fine for most mobile phones and the same as other off the shelf USB cables. I used the the stock G3 cable as a control in the tests which let me draw the ~1500ma needed. I tested this cable using my workshop PSU (15A) and various 2A phone chargers.
The advantage you do get with these cables is if your power supply does not have the data lines shorted to tell your phone it can take more than 500ma. If that's the case then you will see an improvement. Or if you have a very thin gauge USB cable that will slow your charging so replacing with this cable will improve that for you.
So its not all bad but if your expecting to match the performance of your stock cable for a G3 for example its not going to happen.

Charges the product excellently, however out of the 6 I've bought I've had problems with 4. 2 micro USB head have come off and 2 are wobbly and need wiggling to charge.
Unfortunate, because they work excellently.

Works so effectively I'm buying another for work.

I bought few of theese cables and i am absolutely happy with them.
Even so happy that i am recommending them to my friends, or letting them using mine.
From measuring on my phone i can see that theese cables can charge my phone at double speed, i did not see this power on any other kind of cables.

This is the prefect charging cable to go with the portapow chargers that have a fast charging port (will work on other types and normal chargers too) and works at full speed by using the "dumb" connection option - tricks the phone/device into thinking it's an ac charger and allows the full dose :-)

Tested the 30cm cable against a generic cable of similar length.
Portapow cable was charging at 700ma vs 300-350ma from generic cable out of all laptop usb ports.
Good tight fit at the phone end, the cable looks and feels pretty solid and I think it should last a good while, worth the money just for the fast charging rate.
