Our plugs are always so far away from where we're sitting so these extra long cables are awesome! We are very hard on our phone chargers bc we use our phone while they're charging all the time. The cord bends and twists a lot...these stand the test of time. Plus I have the annoying habit of kinking it at the port site everyday😝 and they've held up for a year or two each time we buy. We've used them for years!
