Micro usb small hole
Disclosure: i bought this directly from monoprice, not from outletpc. You would zoom in the micro usb portion of the cable, and compared it with say mediabridge hi-speed usb 2.0 - (3 feet) - a-male to micro-b cable, you would notice the the hole is too small.When i used it my galaxy nexus, the phone develop an issue. From time to time, the phone charging icon would activate, even when it is not plugged. My battery would only last 6-8 hours, instead of 1-2 days as before.It turns out, this usb cable has a smaller hole compared to others, and effectively pushing down the tiny circuitry/pins in my phone's micro usb port. I fixed the issue by using a very needle to push it back up.
