    Great product providing you don't stretch cable

    Everyone complains about these cables, works very well. I charge mine in the kitchen and have two iPhone's and the original cables 6mths later.

    For all those complaining use common sense when plugging in and you will be fine

    I've had my cable for over a year now, and it's still in mint condition, I here a lot of people complaining about Apple's Cables breaking a lot, but my is fine and I think this is down to the fact that I look after it, and the people who complain don't actually look after thier own cable; unfortunatley I cannot tell people how to think and do things!

    Overall pretty good cable and I would buy another one if I have the money!

    I really cannot understand all the negative reviews

    • Written by from Workington

    I used the same cable that came with my iPhone 5 for over a year and it was still like new. Nothing broke on it. In all the time I’ve owned Apple kit which has come with a USB cable, I have not had a single issue with any of them.

    Admittedly, the cable on this lead is not the thickest, but all of these leads are the same, they don’t need to be thick cabled.

    I think a lot of negative reviews are due to heavy handed use, I think these people are pulling on the cable to remove them instead of pulling them out by the plug/connecter. I’ve seen far more negative reviews on 3rd party cables than on Apple’s cables. At least when you buy Apple branded ones, you know the thing is going to work, a lot of the 3rd party ones are not licensed and as such will not work or some are dam right dangerous.

    A bit expensive, but a good cable all the same.

    Seems robust to me

    I have several of these and none of them has broken. I am trying to imagine what kind of use causes them to break. I travel a great deal and wrap the cables in tight spools for efficient packing. They get rough treatment. As I say, they all still work fine so I have to ask what people are doing to break them.
