    Anyone recommend a cable to get as a spare, think it was the quick guide that said to only use the cable supplied to prevent damage to the nexus.

    A cable's a cable. It's just wires connecting one connector to a connector on the other end. I don't see how one could damage your device.

    well, sometimes.

    Just don't expect that kind of cable to allow OTG functions which have wires shorted to differentiate a 'charging' cable connection from a local data connection, and so on.

    I got a Rocketfish cable to use at home.

    It works fine. I prefer it to the stock cable because it is 4' long, whereas the stock cable is only about 3' long.

    20 bux ? hahahahahahhaahaa

    try 1.43 including shipping from Anamax in Texas - mine from them works fine, buy two or three if you like for spares in case the dog eats it.

    I use one of the umpteen cables that came with any of my other gadgets. ASUS does ship short cables, cheap SOBs.

    I bought 2 from ebay I think and it really is slow compared to the mains charger that came with the SGS2, it charges but just a little slow so im still looking for 1.
