Does anyone else get a really mild continuous electic shock from this cable when small a portion of exposed skin lightly touches the cable?
The cables i bought on Aug 14, 2016 broke today the head was lose it could turn 360 degree even the normal cables that come with the phone don't have that problem.

had mines for only about a month, pretty the same issue

edit: u would figure that, for what they actually sell for, it would be of better quality
Purchased both the microUSB-to-USBA and auxiliary cables and have used them for a year (the previous drops were in September and October 2016). The microUSB cable works great with no problems so far. The auxiliary cable works normally, but the cable tends to twist and tangle itself unless it is spread out. Not sure why that is, I have treated both cables in the same manner and have coiled them similarly, yet the auxiliary cable self-tangles and the USB cable works like brand new.

The one thing that the Logiix USB cable has that I haven't seen elsewhere is that both of the connectors (the micro-B USB terminal and the USB-A terminal) are able to fit in their respective receptacles and work properly no matter which direction the connector was plugged in. The mysterious yet infamous phenomenon of USB cables requiring three tries to plug properly (despite only having two possible orientations) quietly slinks away to bother other nice people. The way it works is the USB-A connector (which usually has one half open and the other half solid) only has a divider in the middle which houses the pins, and the micro-B USB connector is shaped more like a diamond to fit in either orientation.

I received these godlike cables in the September 2016 drop; when I re-joined eagerly the next month I was beyond despair when I discovered the cables were normal cables which only fit one way. If you so choose to join this drop, I wish you some amount of luck so you too can stop fretting about silly things like the orientation of a USB connector.

These cables work great and you won't go wrong with this drop. However, my personal favorites (the latest in the everlasting struggle to find the perfect USB cable) are cables from ANKER. High quality cables for low quality price. I recommend you try out a cable or two, and am open to any recommendations for better cables!
Two far cheaper options...both were $12 for two cables when purchased.

Which is amazing for a metal jacketed cable, but since it is a mesh you'd want to keep it away from water. It is quite pressure resident though, since I can't crush the cable with my fingers and it is super bendable. Feels like chainmail...oh, and charges faster than my factory cable for my S6, fast charging and standard.

And on MassDrop...

They are more like a coiled spring. You can pull them apart and expose the jacketing underneath, but they seem about the same build quality as the first set. They are smoother than the first set. I was looking for something tough to give to a kid, so something water tight/nigh indestructible. These are thinner than I expected. Still nice, though not water tight. Also, they aren't magnetic like I had hoped.

Either way, $6 per cable is way better than this drop.
Seems a bit steep 26 ish for lighting cable
Bought the Lightning variety a while ago and they seemed very well-built (and were definitely cat-resistant, as I was hoping), but failed within 2 months of use. Seemed to be a problem with the ends.
The ones being sold in this current drop may be different/improved, but I would choose a different brand next time. There are several other high quality metal braided/plated cables out there.
Aluminum steel? Is that more like cheese omlette or cotton wood?
so what's the warranty on these? Why wouldn't I just go to mosorganizer.com they have lifetime warranties.
I bought two USB to USB C that are 6ft to use on my LG V20 for less than half this price on Amazon. Yes they are steel clad. No they haven't quit working after several months of use and abuse. They are a no name brand and are USB 3.1 compliant and do quick charge actually slightly faster than the factory cable that came with it. They look exactly like these only the plugs look a little nicer. I took at this drop just to see what lengths are available as have a use for a 12 footer. This is sad.
"Aluminum steel" lol. Two different things. Steel is iron + carbon and sometimes various other elements to get different alloys. Aluminum is an entirely different metal/element. They do not mix well due to very different melt points and specific gravity. Although they can in some instances be together in an alloy withe the presence of other elements. So is it aluminum or steel? Does anyone make it to middle school science anymore?

Good comment.

I'd say steel braiding (ali would be too soft) with aluminium plug bits.
SkonOfVulcan
Great comment, I enjoyed thoroughly. I'm assuming they just use a pandemic dingle arm to mix the elements into a homogeneous slurry
No Mini-B :(
So, these cables do function, so that's good. But, in the description for the micro USB cables:

  • Reversible USB connector, for ease of use

The last time I bought one of these it was reversible and that was the whole reason I bought more. The two I bought this time are NOT reversible. That's not cool, Logiix.

Yeah, the old ones were awesome! Not because of the covering, but because of the reversible micro-USB connector. I keep it in my vehicle so I don't have to look before plugging it in.

Great to know, thanks for posting this
Does anyone know where I could get a cable like this in mini usb?
I don't see the value. I can get An Amazon basics cable x3 for about the same price....that's a minimum of 3 years of cable. I guess if your insanely hard on cables this might make sense.

Currently thanks to siblings (Toddlers) I go through 2-3 a year. Sorry i worded it wrong.
True my Corsair K70 Rapidfire looks beautiful with the braided cable.
