    The 2m cord is thicker….FYI

    • Written by from Marlboro

    Just got two of the longer iPhone 5 lightening cords…so far, working fine, but be aware that while the connector itself is the same, the cord is slightly thicker than the 1m cord…..could be an issue if you use it with some types of docking stations where you thread the cord into the dock (example: 12South's HiRise Dock for iPhone. I managed to make it work, but have to tape the bottom of the docking station where the cord threads out to keep the cover on it.)

    Little pricey, but does the job

    • Written by from Pearl River

    Not much to say here, because the cable is a replica of the stock cable that comes with the phone, but longer, which is useful is a lot of different situations.

    My one drawback is the price, not too crazy, but if it came with the wall adapter it would be 5 stars.

    Much improved over 30-pin connector

    • Written by from Santa Ana

    I love the new lightning connector. It has this very satisfying 'click' when you connect it in to the port. Charges and syncs just as fast as before, if not faster. You can insert the cable right side up or upside down and it recognizes both ways. Seems sturdy and high quality, just as you would expect from Apple.

    The downside: just as you would expect, you pay a premium for this better quality and better materials. There is also a level of control from Apple over the third-party market, and this has increased the price of third-party accessories as well. Being that these are mass produced on such a high level, I would expect and wish the prices to come down faster and to a more affordable level. This is the reason for one star off.

    Overall, great product and the best of the consumer-level quality that is available.
