I'm looking for a quality USB cable that is at least 10 feet long, has a micro USB connector on one end, and can actually keep my phone charged while I use it (Current 10 foot cable I'm using can't).

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

I'd say that the only construction "quality" parameter that might make a difference in your situation is wire gauge. Do any USB cable manufacturers specify their product's wire gauge?

It is possible that the computer is not supplying enough juice to charge it and talk on it at the same time.
I once had a phone that showed voltage too low. I moved the cable to another computer and it charged.
Now I use a wall charger plugged into a cheap power strip on top of my desk. Gives me several feet to move around.
There are also portable chargers that can be used to charge only or just actually extend the talk time up to 3 ?? times what the battery alone will do.
