What are your opinions on this cable series? Have they improved the overall performance over the originan PowerLine cables and.what have your experiences been? Also, what base charging brick do you use with yours?
I love mine so far I use it with a Samsung adaptive charge EP-TA20JWE standard brick as well as a wall mounted Belkin Surge Plus 6 outlet 2 USB surge protector (BSV602tt) in a few rooms. Depending on the USB brick the Ford's performance improves so be sure you are plugged into a brick which supplies the correct current for your device. On my Samsung tablet for example I can't rely on our Belkin USB ports when it is on and apps are going so I plug it into the adaptive brick and it charges quickly. The Xbox One controllers or peripherals aren't picky and charge on anything and the 15ft PowerLine+ cords perform amazingly anywhere. I am a bit let down though that the teeth on the micro USB side are wearing on one cord which is isolated to my bedside table and only used for my tablet. It isn't used except maybe every other day and already it is a loose cord which has to be left completely still or it loses contact. The other cords connect just fine and lock in stiffly so it isn't the internal pieces of the tablet. That cord isn't very old either -only a couple months.
