What reviewers liked

Durable nylon fiber cloth for protection, flexibility and is tested to bend 95 degrees at least 4000 times.

It has a slimmer body than some of the other cables which makes it compact and easy to handle. It comes in multiple lengths.

What reviewers didn't like

The only knock against Amazon Basics was that the reinforcement warped after my office chair wheel rolled over it.
Does not charge as fast as some of the other cables. It comes with the shortest warranty ( 1 year)
