Wait, some of you are really paying $25 for a cable???? Seriously?? Why wouldn't you buy 2 from Anker/MonoPrice with a lifetime warranty, and swap out the broken one while awaiting an RMA?
It's terrible broke after a month of use.
Is it possible to give option to users to pick custom length size cable, like I am looking for 35cm and 15cm? Thank you
Why would you make such a expensive cable and them make the USB-C one in the LOWEST SPEC? It should be at LEAST USB 3.1 Gen.2 with USB PD (ultimate would be the same but with the added support of DisplayPort over USB.)...instead, you guys make it USB 2.0 cable...retarded.
I don't know why lightning cables that last are so hard to find. I bought 6 of these on the last drop, and 3 were bad. I contacted support, but they indicated these cables are out of stock and they would need to replace the cables with something else. I find that very frustrating. On the plus side, of the 3 that are good, I haven't had any problems. Also experienced no issues with the USB-C cables.

I received replacement cables, and they all work without issue. For lightning cables, these are great, you just need to check them and request replacements if they do not work.
Would like one in mini USB
This cable looks very solid, but it is a piece of sh!t I was walking carrying charging phone in my pocket and it simply got bended + those "teeth" that should hold cable inside the phones socket hid inside and do not do their job anymore.
Absolute waste of money.

Hi !
I bought the micro USB one two months ago and it's already kinda broke, as the cable is starting to get out from the USB plug and wires are getting out too. I bought another cable, but not a Logiix one.
TheHaricover
Hey @TheHaricover , I am so sorry you are facing difficulties with your cable. I would be more than happy to help you out with a replacement cable if you contact LOGiiX at customerservice@logiix.net.
@MassdropTech Could you please confirm if the micro USB connector on the micro USB cable in the current drop will be reversible?
See earlier post for reference: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/logiix-piston-connect-steel-braided-cables/talk/1796313
Does anyone else get a really mild continuous electic shock from this cable when small a portion of exposed skin lightly touches the cable?
Flavourcountry
Yeah. And my cable is starting to not work. I'm pretty sad cause I bought it like 2 months ago. Won't buy Logiix again. I use the Micro USB 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.
RipperPebble
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.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071KP1XKC/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_HVY8zbBH3JMMZ 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...
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/48935 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?
SkonOfVulcan
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.
I just got the iPhone charger... is nice and long and I'm sure it will last a long time BUT it doesn't stay connected to my phone very well and keep have to push it back in. Kinda stinks tbh
Hi Massdrop community :) I have both the 3.5mm Aux and the Micro-usb cables for sale. New, free shipping and very low price.

Thanks!
Has anybody experience with the AUX cable? Is it good? I've seen a lot of negative comments here regarding the USB cables and i'm now a bit unsure if i should really go for it.

Yep. It is still under warranty.
SamBBMe
Thanks!!! What is the process to get a new one???
I got this in a drop a few months back. It stopped working within a month. Company sent me a replacement. The replacement only lasted a few day. Don't bother.
All this innovation and durability to then dash my hopes on the rocks of a USB 2.0 capable cable. Isnt USB C supposed to support USB 3.1 speeds? Im so confused as to why i would spend so much for something that can barely do what i want

This is mostly true but not entirely. I have a couple USB A-to-C cables that "rapid charge" my Nexus 6P. I've had a hell of a time finding more of them, and have returned a dozen or so to Amazon even though said cables specifically indicate that they're capable. I would definitely buy this one if it could do the same.
user73
I don't understand how a USB A 2.0 port outputs more than 2.4A though? I have a 6P also so I'm keen to know. I'd assume it's a 3.1 port/cable?
Fair warning to all, I have been through 5 of these cables, including both the micro usb and lightning. They all mysteriously stop working after 2-3 days. I finally figured out that if I plugged the dead cable into my pc and connect the other end to my Xbox one controller, the cable miraculously starts to work again. I can't tell if the wall-plug adapter is the cause or not because both the fast charging variety and the regular charging variety yields the same results.

No one seems to know by the looks. That is enough for me to walk away from it as a USB-C cable. Massdrop and/or the manufacturer should have made this clear up front. That the haven't makes me think it is not.
