cheap but not shielded – Micro USB Data Transferring Cable (96CM-Length) Reviews

posted by Tobixll on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
small, cheap, easy to use like every cable
Cons:
the cable emits a very strong electrical field when plugged into a wall outlet usb adaptor. this leads to an interference with nereby touchscreens to a point where you can't use them while the cable is near. Plugged into a computer usb outlet, this doesn't seem to be a problem
Other:
With the weakness I pointed out above, this cable shouldn't cost more than 50 cents... However, if you just need a cable to charge something and don't want to use it while doing so, you'll be fine.
Bottomline:
Recommended only for charging unsophisticated gadgets.
