    Great Cable, Bit Expensive Though

    • Written by from Ballincollig

    This is a great bit of kit. I wish it was a little cheaper though but it is better than the cheap ones you find on eBay since they usually break quickly and this one is more durable and comes with a 12 month warranty.

    Can't fault the product, but...

    Very nice quality cable with good, solid connectors. However, it doesn't seat well on an iPad 2, due to there being quite a bit of inexplicable forward/backward play when you plug it in. Despite the connector being almost identical to a genuine Apple one, I'm unable to replicate the problem with the original cable. I'm reluctantly returning mine and waiting for a product that's updated for iPad 2.

    Does what it says on the tin.

    Pro's:
    • length - at 3m/10ft it's really useful, filling a variety of needs.
    • toughness - thickness (16 AWG: about 2x normal cable) makes it stronger.
    • quality - the 2 ends feel sturdy and not easily breakable.
    • versatile - nearly all iDevices: most iPod range, all iPhones, all iPads.
    • iPad - carries 2.1 amp, for wall & car charging (using 2.1 power sources).
    • iPhone 4 bumper - compatible, fits in bumper gap for sync & charging.

    Con's:
    • weight - with bulk comes weight to get toughness, though not too bad.
    • price - £30 still feel lots for a cable (like me, if poss, buy in US to save a ⅓).

    In summary, a good idea really, as it can be used across many Apple portable devices, and the quality is pretty good.
    Would recommend if you need the length and can accept the price (currently around double the 1m/3ft standard Apple cable's price, when you buy those separately), hence a star deducted.

    Definitely worth purchasing, so much so, one wonders why Apple don't do longer ones themselves.
