Sourcing good USB cables

by shredinger on Sat Jan 22, 2022 10:24 pm

My program sends out a lot of kits to classrooms, and we're getting a lot of problems with bad cables. Some might be charging cables, some are just damaged. Some fail soon after use. None of the places we buy them indicate that they wouldn't work, but we always seem to get bad ones.

So: is there a reliable source that someone can recommend for cables that will work more often? Thanks.

What length do you need? We carry an assortment of cables that we support.

Didn't even think to look. I guess I thought previous people would have decided against it for a reason. I do see the right one on here, so we'll see if it's a bit more robust. Thanks for pointing out what should be the obvious.
