Most of the cables immediately available are too stiff and really meant for desktop hard drives. The OEM charger cable is much more flexible. I'm also trialling a curly cable.
I got cables with additional [UK] Samsung wall chargers which have good cables
There'll be US ones around for sure.
You can also get these more flexible type cables from Chinese sites. I've bought from both.
Charge rate is good but dependant not on the cable so much as on the cigarette-lighter -> USB plug. This needs to be rated over 2 Amp. (There are a lot around that are only 1 Amp.)
Here is the integral curly cable charger but I'm not yet convinced it's 2 Amp
