I don’t know about you, but I’ve started to consider a quality charging cable a must buy accessory.  Whenever I unbox a new smartphone it seems that the cable is shorter, thinner and more fragile.  This has forced me and I’m sure many of you, to look for other options.  A quality cable offers many advantages, but mostly ensures that you can reliably charge your beloved smartphone.  Because honestly, the world would come to a screeching halt if you woke up in the morning to a dead battery.

In my search for a new Micro USB cable I came across the FRiEQ Hi-Speed cable.  I have to admit, it was the colors that drew me in, but it was the blend of specs and value that convinced me to spend my money.  The FRiEQ Micro USB cable is six feet long, covered in tangle-free, braided nylon and has gold connectors at either end.  Best of all, FRiEQ claimed that this cable would cut down on the amount of time it took to charge my phone.  All of this for only $7.99, I was sold!

When I opened the package and inspected the cable, I was impressed right away.  The cable is thicker than most others I’ve used and the braided nylon keeps knots away.  The connectors are easy to manipulate and fit perfectly.  I tested the FRiEQ cable against, a stock LG cable and an Amazon Basics cable I’ve had for about a year.  I can verify that the FRiEQ cable definitely charged my LG G3 faster than the other cables by a good margin.

I’ve been using the FRiEQ Hi-Speed cable for about two months now and it has held up great.  It looks just as good now as the day I got it, but more importantly, it performs just as well as the day it came out of the package.  If you’re looking for a new charging cable, you cannot go wrong with the FRiEQ Hi-Speed.

  1. Have you read the Amazon reviews which say that the micro USB connectors are flimsy and the cables don’t last long at all?

  2. Would it still possible charge my phone faster if I use a charge dock that I plug the cable into? For a Sony Xperia. You know the magnetic pins that charge

  3. I’m sure using a good cable does help with charging time, but the biggest difference is using a higher amperage charging block (the part you plug in to the wall). My phone came with a 1.3A charger block and I switched it out with a 2A block and it charges MUCH faster now.
