Needing a long cable for my car (the cigarette socket is some way from the dash after routing discreetly) I had blindly picked a cheap eBay 2m cable.
On a long journey using the phone as a SatNav it ran out of charge.
This led to a long hunt round forums and it turns out the Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4 can draw a high current and cheap cables made from inferior materials (low copper content) have too high a loss. The short original Samsung cable is fine presumably because although lightweight there is little loss over the short length.
With an inferior cable the charge rate can drop to less than 50% which of curse more than doubles charge times or worse if like me you have the phone on for SatNav not being sufficient to maintain a charge.
My own investigation involved observation (how long it took to fully charge) backed up by a great minimalist app called "galaxy charging current" which accurately shows the charge rate.
Eventually after some searching on the internet for a higher quality cable I came across the Cromo range on Lindy's site that are marketed as "power USB" cables.
This 2m cable does it exactly what it should, charging at the full 1200mA (for the S4) when the mains/car adapter is capable of supplying that.
The cable's are naturally a little thicker but that is needed to reduce any loss across the length.
If you want a 2m cable that still charges at the maximum rate then this is the one for you.
