    looking for a place in the uk to buy decent USB cables (A standard plug to B standard plug)

    I need them to be reliable to keep connection to my external audio devices without them dropping off.

    and not overpriced.

    Anker cables are the best in my eyes.

    Been using "Belkin Premium" cables for industrial use (where others failed) but I think they're discontinued

    Anker make excellent stuff, I have a few of their braided USB cables and they are great.

    Another vote for Anker for me. When I got my OnePlus 3t I researched type-c cables quite thoroughly and Anker consistently got very good reviews, both user reviews and techincal reviews too

    Another vote for Anker from me, but they don't do any standard USB A to B cables. Amazonbasics would be my next best bet.

    Anker.

    I use their type-c with my op3t, and their microusb for everything else. They stand up to my girlfriend's use and abuse fine, too. I love their power bricks too, got more than a few of those around the house!

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say Syncwire - I use their stuff exclusively at home and the metal heads + braided cables have been unkillable in practice, I've got several year old phone cables from them that are still going without any issues.
