    So far, I am impressed.

    • Written by from Washington

    Just got the this 2M cable and I am initially impressed. My cable that came originally just fell apart at the phone connection. Too much pulling on the cable as oppose to pulling on the adapter.
    What I like?
    Thickness. The 2M feels thicker. Length. The 2M is longer.
    It is a "man's" cable if that makes any sense. Charges just as fast as the shorter cable, at least with respect to the iPhone.
    Plus, delivery was 2 days as promised!
    So before you buy it, make sure at least these two properties or differences you want. Otherwise, don't order this one, go get the shorter/thin one.

    Very poor quality

    • Written by from London

    The cable is already splitting at the lightning connecting end after only a few months. Very, very poor quality. And a very high price. Expected much better, that's why I bought Apple, and at the price it should be a top quality, reliable cable. Unfortunately it's not. Not recommended at all.

    The cord is poor quality. It stopped working on me and I have to buy another one. I don't think I will be buying one from apple since after reading the reviews I'm eventually going to buy another one down the line. No thanks.

    Cord #26 and counting

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    The length of this cord is far better than what is in the box with the product. It is somewhat ridiculous that the cord just stops working. With 8 family members worth of phones and devices it gets expensive to replace all of the cords multiple times. I just found out that if I take my apple cord to an apple store they will replace it- no charge. I wish I knew this 25 cords ago... Unfortunately the closest apple store is 45 minutes away. What an inconvenience when you're in panic mode because your phone is about to die and no cord is working.

    Rubbish quality!

    • Written by from Manchester

    These cables are rubbish quality they break after a few months of use. I always hear reasons like its being moved around too much or you shouldn't scrunch it up, its a phone charger it needs to be moved around and put in bags etc.
    I haven't given one star because on the plus side I went to the apple store and they replaced the cable for free when it broke.

    Why wont they make this standard size?!

    • Written by from Oakland

    I love my 6ft cord. It allows me to roll around in bed, phone in hand, without having to worry about accidentally unplugging my charger. This cord is life changing. Lol Kidding. Sort of. Due to the length of the cord it does tend to bend and gather up at the ends of the charger, but its okay. It's covered by Apple's amazing 1 year warranty. Just make sure to keep your receipt and they should exchange it with no extra charge.

    1 star? Nope.

    • Written by from ALBION PARK

    I'm honestly dumbfounded by the amount of 1 star reviews on this. The 2m cable that arrived is thicker than the stock cable that came with my iphone 3G through to iphone 6 plus. None of the supplied cables have broken.

    Ordered on a monday arvo and it arrived the next morning, great recyclable packaging and I like that it comes smoothly rolled instead of how they're rolled up with the phones!

    Poor quality

    I have had two of the cables go bad. The wiring is of poor quality and they are not cheap to replace. I expected more from Apple. Very disappointed.

    Apple charger is the worst one

    • Written by from Flushing

    I have bought 5-8 chargers in the last 2 years. They never last more than a month or two. Cmon apple people. We don't expect such a cheap accessories from your company. Very dissappointed.

    Great Profit Centre For Apple

    • Written by from Norwich

    As most reviewers state the cable doesn't last any longer than a few months before it starts splitting at the Lightning conductor end which means you constantly have to replace them. Great business for Apple at £25 a pop not so great for Apple's loyal customers we have 5 Apple devises that need this type of cable so you can do the Math. Apple this product needs improving full stop.

    USB cable

    This product consistantly goes bad, to the point I will no longer buy apple products. I call it the weakest link of all apple products such as ipads, iphone and laptops.

    Very dissapointed.

    • Written by from Poznan

    I'm very disappointed with this product. I have had an issue with the plastic cable wrap tearing away near the lightning port of the cable. The same thing happened to my second cable in the same spot. This is definitely an issue. Not Apple quality..

    Very unhappy, due to the danger this cord could have caused…

    • Written by from Hurt

    While owning this (original) cord a little over a year with gentle use, it has turned out to die with the attempt at going out with a bang. It was being used to charge the iPad with retina display, and what happened was it began to literally smoke at one end closest to the USB adapter, and nearly caught fire, forcing me to have to yank it out of the socket before we had a more serious problem on our hands. Surely, Apple, you have done better at making better cords, and this issue needs to be resolved, quickly…since it can clearly be a safety hazard. I will be on the hunt for a second cord, meanwhile…Apple has some fixing to do to improve the quality of their cords so that their devices are user worthy such as to compliment their user friendliness.

    Love the additional length and durability!

    • Written by from Ingersoll

    Notice others have commented negatively on the 2m cord. I purchased one for travel and my night stand for daily charging and have used it every day at home and away and its still like new. I especially like the additional length at home and in hotels when the outlet may not be close to the bed side table when charging my iPhone or iPad.
    No complaints and it is much more robust than the the 1m version.

    I love my iPhone and stuff but these chargers are awful I'vejust bought my 15th charger today! I've had my phone for about 10 years!!
    Apple needs to redesign the charger with what they used with the older chargers asI still have the iPod touch 4Gen and the charger it came with and it still works to this day and I had the iPod the first day it came out!!

    If I could put half a star, I WOULD.

    • Written by from Newton Abbott

    These cables were supposed to be the future of Apple products. It's a bigger disappointment since unsliced bread. Credit where credits due, it can charge the phone very quickly. However, cannot last longer than a month doing the job in which it was created for. And for a whopping $29 a pop, it's unbelievably overrated and overpriced. VERY UNHAPPY. Not cool Apple, you're making Android look good!!!!!!

    Complainers are abusive to their cables

    • Written by from Plano

    I have had the same Lightning cable that came with my iPhone 5 on launch day 2 years ago. It is used constantly and has no issues or signs of wear. You would think it is brand new except for its discolored from handling for 2 years.

    If you cable is breaking it is because you are not taking care of it and are twisting it too much. There should not be strain on your cable when it is plugged in.

    I think since the Lightning cable was introduced... since it can plug in "either way" people just pick it up and jam it in and puts tension on the end of the cable. They set it down... pick it up and use, set it down... pick it up and use... and every time they do this they twist it further.

    Take care of your equipment people and it will last.

    One of the Lucky Ones

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I've been using this cable for the past 18 months with my 5th Gen iPod Touch and 4th Gen iPad. I have charged both of them daily and have had no problems at at with the iPod and only occasionally have I had to make 2 or 3 attempts at plugging and unplugging the lightning connector to get the iPad to charge.
    I have 3 of these cords in different rooms of my home and I really haven't had any real problems with them. I guess I'm just lucky.
