Extremely thin conductors – USB Data Transmission + Charging Cable for Dell Streak Mini 5 - Black (80CM-Length) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap.
Disassemblable.
Could be easily fixed by cutting out 80% length.
I've cut off both connectors with 15cm cable margin and connected them to each other, making cable 20cm long.
It resulted in good 1A charge from wall adapter.
Cons:
Extremely thin conductors. Gingerbread 2.3.3 ROM causes battery/charger error with Dell (and supposedly any other) AC adaptor.
Other:
Bottomline:
Could be subject to DIY if you are comfortable with cutting 80% length off and connecting the rest.
