One of the cables are for £5.21 so buying two-pack for £6.99 doesn't seem to be too bad.

You're entitled to your opnion but I and probably most people who have tried anker cables will disagree.

1. Micro USB cables are retained by a sprung latch on every cable I have ever tried (and I have gone through many) they eventuality fatigue and fail. I am yet to have a Anker one fail.

2. The mating cycle on the Anker ones seems to be significantly better, the first sign of this is usually intermittent connection problems bit not experienced it on Anker.

3. The ground and power wires are thicker meaning less voltage drop thus more likely to achieve fast charging.

4. I have kids, the cables get twisted, pulled, and generally rough treatment while they use their devices while on charge.

5. I also have a set in the car where they are trodden on, sat on, shut between the door, caught between seat runners etc. and they are still fine.

6. Look on YouTube and you can see someone towing a car with this cable, whilst you may never do this yourself, it's nice to know that they are strong.

7. The connector is actually welded to the body so the part most likely to fail just doesn't.

8. Not these specific ones but their newer Powerline II ones have a lifetime guarantee.

So feel free to choose any cable you like but I would rather pay a few £ more and not have to worry about buying replacements again.

Can't really compare those to the Anker ones listed.

The Anker ones are amazing quality cables that are really built to last.
I'd buy again if I needed extra cables. I have purchased cheaper USB cables but they don't tend to last, despite being careful. Bought set of braded Anker cables over a year ago and they're as new.

Anker products are superb for the price and their after sales service is excellent.

Two power banks, USB cables, SoundCore Bluetooth speaker and a pair of Bluetooth magnetic earphones are my current Anker products.

What do you mean built to last? lol whats the time scale of these cables until they dont work?

i bought cables, there plugged into mains, never move again, just when i plug my phone or tablet it.

i guess if your always moving cables about/taking them for a walk etc it might matter, but those gritin cables are just as good qualty.

Not sure this is a deal. They've always offered the two pack for £6.99 AFAIK. I bougt one ages ago.
I got these for my iPhone before lol
Totally agree with the quality and service of anker products. I too have headphones, Bluetooth speaker, power banks, usb 5 port hub, and cables, all top notch quality and never had a problem with any of them.

And while fortunately never needed to return anything, any testimonials claim excellent customer service. They often replace faulty items without even asking for the faulty units back.

Anker are my go to brand for anything cable/power related and have been for years now.
Anker have brilliant customer service. I bought a bluetooth speaker that had a weak connection and distorted sound every now and then, a few emails later and they sent a new one without wanting the faulty one back.

I've had 2 of their braided cables that after a year or so started to get the "this accessory is not supported" message pop up, again they sent new ones without asking for the faulty ones back.
Had these for years, one in living room and one in the bedroom. Great quality and much more convenient to use than short ones.
Anker has 18 month warranty

And great customer service

I ordered an apple lightning cable

This is an android deal, doesn't mean the cable are any better, just you have peace of mind if anything goes wrong

Having used Rav power, Aukey and a few others; Anker are far superior. The others have stopped charging, split at the point where the connector meets wire and generally not provided transfer speeds or charging speeds advertised. Anker are yet to fail me. I used to get though a fair few generic brands as my kids/wife/family are pretty rough with them. The Anker cables I bought last year still look like new. Even the one in my wife's car looks like new (well maybe a bit dusty) despite her every effort to decimate them.
Sorry but the negative reviews of the Gritin cables all talk about slow charging/speeds and breaking downs in a few months time. Personally I would continue to buy Anker.
I bought two of these about a year ago and am just in the process of returning them. They've been good but they've only lasted a year and the warranty is for 18 months, so of course I'm gonna take them up on it. Unlike with the other buyers up there, they are asking for me to return them, but I don't mind as long as they don't mess me about with it, denying that they're faulty or whatever

True, Everyone says "buy these cheap Chinese cables"

They break easily, stop working for no reason or will destroy your phone since they don't have 56k Pull up resistor
