Hi, I'm looking for a really good, small USB OTG cable. I have bought six from JDS labs, but they all break down...
 
Thanks. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

Less likely to break than the straight version, and I have good experience with this particular ebayer's cable. However, if you still keep breaking them, you might want to consider changing how you treat these cable.

EXACTLY what I was looking for, thanks!!
 
I treat my cables carefully, I take care never to apply force to them by putting the set upside down in my pocket. Still, it IS a fragile affair.
 
Thanks again ClieOS!

Okay, I'm completely baffled here. I recieved this new cable and it's sturdy. When I plug it into my phone and the amp I get sound. When I wiggle the cable, it keeps playing.
 
BUT when I try to put the phone and amp (velcroed together) in my coat pocket I hear a loud pop and the music stops playing. Furthermore, when I look on the phone the sound is now rapidly scrolling forward! I have to unplug and reconnect the cable to get sound again.
 
How can this happen? I tried another Samsung Galaxy S4 and it had the same problem... I tried pressing and wiggling everywhere, but I simply can;t reproduce this behaviour without actually putting the phone in my pocket...
 
Thanks, Daan
