Anybody got any suggestions on wires? Ive bought them from Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Big Lots etc..

Im running trough these thangs, they are shorting out on me so often its ridiculous. Ive noticed wires that come with devices have been way more durable than third party joints.

I did my googles and came up on these Mos Cables with a lifetime warranty, but been seeing Anker Cables popping up alot also. I will probably cop the Mos joint cuz they around 20$ anybody have experience with either of these brands?

    3 options:
    Cables with lifetime warranties
    Amazon to buy cables in bulk for about $3 a piece (I took this route before switching to wireless charging pads)
    Or wireless charging

    I forgot about wireless ima have to do some research, that shit should be reasonably priced now. Whats that charging time like wireless compared to wired? What issues have you ran into going wireless? What brand of of charger are you using? How long have you had your current charging station?

    I've had good experiences with tronsmart and anker charger/cables. Bought a shit load in bulk around black Friday last year and they're still working.

    I just got this one this ^^^ morning in mail. I know what it's like to keep running through usb cables and then they make the length of them so short that it's easy to break. I also bought a square outlet charger from ebay as a spare if the one from amazon doesn't work. So far it works great but charges a little slower that the original charger I had for my phone.

    I wish that LG would start doing wireless phone charging like Samsung does with it's phones it would be nice.

    Whats the quality of the port on that dock? Whenever I get some shit like that its wiggly out the box. Does it simultaneously charge a device and a spare battery?

    I actually kept the original port (or outlet) that came with my phone and plugged the usb from the dock charger into that. It didn't come with an og port (outlet) out the box. So if you were to get a dock charger that was compatible I would keep the port (outlet) just to make it easier instead of using your computer to charge.

    You know what I haven't charged my battery by itself on the dock so I wouldn't exactly be able to tell you. I've just charged the phone on it but judging off the amazon advertisement, it seems like you could charge the phone and the battery at the same time from my guess. I've had no problems with it and works very good it just charges a little slower than the traditional charger I had for my phone.
