The plastic smells strongly not unpleasant to cheaper China plastic chemistry. This I had but read before buying in a customer review, concerning a cable of this kind of "kenable". However, I could find nothing like that, so do not worry!
Delivery is made by "kenable" directly from the United Kingdom via postal delivery in the letterbox in a waterproof plastic bag, on which the address is affixed. Very convenient.
I now have five different cable of this sort and can only say:
Super Reasonable price and very good quality.
The value for money is really good !!!
