You pay the price you get the quality
I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival and soon the other broke. So finally I bought this cable which is the same length as the ones I purchased elsewhere and you can feel the cable difference. Worth the money to have the longer cable.
Downside- apple should send these with the device...
Worth the money …

Much improved over 30-pin connector
I love the new lightning connector. It has this very satisfying 'click' when you connect it in to the port. Charges and syncs just 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. …

Worst cable ever
I have purchased 6 of these junk cables and now I need to order more. My wife breaks one a month just using her Ipad mini! Cheap I have purchased 6 of these junk cables and now I need to order more. My wife breaks one a month just using her Ipad mini! Cheaply made but expensive to buy. A poor design that Apple doesn't repair or stand behind. They all break right at the mini end. You might as well buy $2.99 cables from the internet. They will break but so does Apples. …
