These type of cables usually experience partial contact during use.
Did you know? Aluminum is way cheaper than copper that's why manufacturers use it more to produce cheap and inferior products.
How to Identify Original USB Cables,it clearly shows the holes and bus inside the cable is made with copper which makes it original.
