    Charging Cable Recommendation?

    I've read the helpful posts about the charging vs data properties of the Asus OEM charging cable, and I wonder if users might recommend the brand name of a replacement charging cable.

    Mine works, but the micro-usb end is poorly-made and it's difficult to insert (a Nokia charge/data cable, for example, is a much surer insertion in the T100TA).

    Can any veteran point me to a replacement cable s/he has found successful for fast-charging?

    Many thanks,
    Jake

    Anker makes cables specifically for charging and fast charging.

    I tested a lot of cables I had laying around and every cable allowed a different current and always a lower than available current. The Anker cables delivers always the same high current.

    They have recently lowered the prices on Amazon, especially their packages are good deals, for these special cables

    The Ankar cables arrived and my problem remains: the head on the cable's micro side is very difficult to insert into the T100TA.

    I tested the Ankars in my Nokia E7 and they fit easily, so the problem is with the T100TA port.

    Yet, when I use the Nokia OEM cable with the T100TA, the fit is much better.

    So I think I'll go with slow charging rather than no charging, as I worry that the charger-only cables would damage a poorly-made port.

    Does anybody else have this experience?

    Jake
