The cable is in its own package, which please me. It is thick, but flexible in the same time, finished with textile layer. I tested it with my charger 2.0A and phone full on 30%. Peak 1.7A charging current. May be, if phone battery is empty it will manage to reach 2.0A (for my phone, that is the limit). I ordered not for first time from this brand, always made me happy!
