How much for that Belkin cable? Margin of 1,992%?

It took quite some time for me to get him to believe that literally the only appreciable difference between the two was the price

Was there a difference is amp's ? Some cables can only carry 1 amp max, others 1.5 or 2 amps. If your dad has a high grade charger that can deliver 2 or more amps, then his cable will get "quite warm" and wear out sooner ...
