This is a really good lightning cable. It works great for my iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad with no errors or problems. It fits fine with my Pelican case even though it is a little larger than the iPhone cords. It is very heavy duty and should last a long time. It is covered with a nylon braid that makes it thicker and sturdier than most cables. It also makes it harder to wrap around my Bobino cord wrap-I had to use a larger size-but that is a small price to pay for strength and durability. The 6 ft length is great.And finally the price was great.

I’ve purchased about 6 of these 6 ft length and an additional 4 3 ft over the past 16 months for various places in the home and our vehicles. The braided wrapping feels and looks more quality than the standard rubber encasing; however...

I’ve begun to notice the attached devices not charging on a couple of the cables. When the device is plugged into another cable in the same outlet, it charges fine. Switching the “bad” cable to a different outlet still demonstrates the failing to charge behavior. Also to note, there are no signs of damage to the cables themselves.

With this in mind, I am not sure if it’s the batch I purchased in Jan ‘17 or Jun ‘17, so I cant be certain on the lifespan before demonstrating failures; however, I am estimating between a 12-18 month lifespan (on perhaps a defective batch).

I’ve purchased a new set of braided cables from a different manufacturer to replace the defective ones and hope I get better results.

Rating 4 out of 5 due to the failing cables but feel the price and price for the lifespan is fairly reasonable (a new cable every 12-18 months isn’t that bad, especially for the sturdiness of it).

This is the third of these cords I have owned. I really like their length and toughness. I think you could tow a car with on of these. They are not real flexible but they get the job done, the big question in life span. I have never had an Apple issue cord quit working on me. I have now had two of these quit. You may ask, then why do I keep getting them. The company offers great service. They have replaced the tow that quit working so I bought this one for my family room so we can charge pads and phones when they need it.

I've gone through a few official Apple cables over the years so when I needed a spare cable, I thought that this time I'd try something different. So far, so good - very pleased with this one - it's well built, strong, and just that little bit longer! Very well packaged too and arrived fast! I will definitely be buying more of these!

I can't count the number of APXX cables I've gone through; I'm a sucker fo symmetry so am slow to switch product lines, but his is my last. The real symmetry among these cable is the way devices simply stopcharging after three-closer-to-four months. Always. I should have written this sooner, but my July cable just stopped charging today, and I'm back looking for another cable that I will decide on the timing of an upgrade.

Dont understand why this has 3 stars since it has been sturdy in my experience. I use it daily in my car and never really had an issue. usually by now the cable fray and break down...

I really really really liked this cable. until it failed on me four months later. It worked perfectly up until then. one random day it just started spasm'ing and having the screen display charging and not charging on repeat over and over and over again. Too bad. was a nice cable.

Update: 2 of 2 cables have now failed in less than 1 year of use. Don't waste your money on this one.

I purchased this cable in July and it's no longer working in December. There's no visible wear and we don't abuse our cables so we're disappointed that it's not working. An identical cable that I purchased at the same time is still working fine but we'll look for another vendor rather than try this one again.

I had purchased 6 of these for charging POS iPads in my store. EVERY SINGLE one of them broke within 12 hours of coming out of the package. I was under the impression these were "High Quality" chargers, but don't be fooled. They are NOT high quality. They are AWFUL! They do charge fine, but break VERY VERY easily. Hoping the refund process is easy. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! There are other better products at similar price points.

I bought this cable in August 2016. It worked fine, until it stopped, while I was on a trip. Now I have $11 worth of useless cable. Not happy.
