Most everything relating to electronic gadgets, parts, etc. are now made in China or in some foreign land.

That's because they can make them cheaper---and, of course they are often unreliable and/or dangerous and ineffective at what they purport to deliver. As for USB cables, I have found that it can be very dangerous to use cheap ones, as you did. It always pays to buy cables for anything that are name brand and preferably made in the USA, altho this is becoming harder to do. Walmart is known for cheaper prices, but also recognize that a cheaper price may also indicate a cheaper piece of goods.

Pay more and get something that will not harm your product. As for Walmart giving you short-shrift----what else do you expect from Walmart---they are not known for their customer service among other deficiencies.
