    Excellent cable despite the bad reviews

    • Written by from Wyoming

    Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. I have 3 devices that use this cable, heck, I still use the original one from my iPhone 5 that I purchased when they were first released. I have yet to have an issue with these cables.

    Nice and long

    • Written by from Cumberland

    Power outlets are most often in the most inconvenient places. Sometimes it's just a struggle find one that's close enough. With this longer cable, you can still use your device comfortably even if it is charging at a far away outlet. Another thing is that the cord (but not the plug) is just a tiny bit thicker than the 1 metre cord Apple gives out with new iPhones and iPads. This makes it feel a little less flimsy.

    length upgrade

    • Written by from Winona

    Sure are a lot of negative reviews on the charging cables. My wife and I must do something different because we have each had our iPhone 5 for two years and both still use the original cables. Not sure why everyone is having so many issues. A co-worker picked up an off brand 5ft cable from the phone store and experienced a connection problem but not with the Apple cable.

    Expensive but not the cheap quality some claim

    • Written by from Milford

    It's a cable, that's it - a cable. I've seen a lot of reviews on here complaining about how this is their 4th or 5th one - most of which allude to children, pets, or something else along those lines. I've had 4 cables total (all apple lightning cables) since the iPhone 5 came out (fall 2012). None of the cables have given me ANY issues. Then again, I'm a young professional who doesn't have pets that chew through cables, children who eat/bend them, or the IQ to try and eat or treat my cables like play-doh. Only complaint I have about the cable is that it is horrendously expensive, but you can consider that the "apple tax".

    Love my longer cable

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I have not had the issues that others have here. My cables last until my cleaning lady runs the vacuum cleaner over it and shreds it or until my cats have decided to chew through it. Just using it for my phone, it is conveniently long and lasts until the previously mentioned incidents.

    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.
    Cheers!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Never had a problem

    • Written by from Henderson

    Not sure what all the bad review users are doing with their cables but I have every cable since the first Iphone and none of them have had an issue. I have purchased many third party cables and they have all broken or quit working. I think I'll pay a little more for the quality. Just a thought, maybe you should not use your phone whilel charging. The cables were not meant to be attached during use.

    Love the cord, held up just fine for me

    • Written by from Dallas

    Spent the extra money on Apple's cord after hearing generic cheap ones (Amazon, etc.) had fried some friend's iPhones. Extra length is very helpful to have next to my bed, and I've had zero issues with cord quality. Not sure if I'm just a lucky one who hasn't had any problems? Either way, very happy with my purchase.

    Lightning Cable

    • Written by from Lewisville

    I like my lightning cables. I've had mine since I got my iPhone 5 Sept 2012, and have never had any problems. It is a smaller connector than the previous gen, multi-directional, and have not had any problems relating to durability. Does what it's supposed to do.

    Best of the Best

    • Written by from Langley

    I’ve bought non Apple cables and now this one. Excellent product. Works well in a vehicle plugged into the front, even when plugged in the rear passenger can use my iPhone. Perfect at home sitting in my favourite chair or in bed. I bought this a long time ago and I’m still very thankful I did and you will be too.

    I was nervous with the reviews... but I love it!

    • Written by from Rutland

    I saw how many people were having terrible luck with this product, but I took a chance with it. I have had it for over two months now, and I haven't had a single problem. It charges my iphone very quickly, doesn't overheat, no problems with connectivity. It was a great purchase!

    great cord

    • Written by from Shreveport

    I bought this cord to have a longer lightning cord and am very pleased with it. I see all kinds of reviews about iPhone cords not lasting long. I have had every iPhone from the 3 to the present 5s and have never had a cord fail. Yes I am careful with them. I only pull on the plug, not on the cord and I don't kink them, i roll them up. Granted, I do not have to carry one with me to work as my battery keeps a charge through work hours so mine are only transported when I travel, but even if one does have to carry one with them every day, how in the world does it stop working in a month? Just use common sense and be a bit careful. Even my husband (who is a bit careless with his phone and cord) has never had one fail.

    Works as advertised, so far has lasted 1.5 years

    • Written by from West Linn

    I don't know what other people are saying about it breaking every month or so, but I've had mine since I got my iPhone 5 1 and a half years ago. The original cable still works perfectly, and is a great product. Thank you Apple!

    Great product... I don't know what everyone else's problem is

    • Written by from Wausau

    I love this cable. It's a lower gauge cable so it's a little thicker than the stock one and what I'm guessing everyone who says it's so fragile does is puts the cable at an extreme angle right before the connector to strip the wiring. Of course it will break if you stress it and yank it out of the socket or the lightning connector but if you're like me and take care of your expensive apple products you will have no problem. With some other long cheap cables that I've bought the charging speed reduced but this cable preserves the original charging speed if you use an apple charger that came with your phone. Don't listen to the uneducated and ignorant reviewers, if you use this cable normally you won't regret your purchase.
