    Rubbish - doesn't connect properly

    • Written by from Wadhurst

    Doesn't charge properly. Need to hold iPhone/iPad at a certain angle to get it to charge and still keeps on disconnecting. Can't believe I bought one of these in each colour, will try other colours but so far it's rubbish (this was the blue one).

    Works intermittently

    • Written by from New Haven

    I could only get the pink cable to work on my PC at work, and only through a super cheapo USB hub. And even then it'll start charging, then stop, then start again. Sometimes it won't charge at all until I jiggle the cable a little. It would not work on my Macbook at home or directly plugged into the USB ports on my work PC, no matter how much I fiddled with the cord. I would not recommend this cable.

    I got this cable and immediately tried it out using the apple charger that came with my phone. My iPhone 5S says that the cable is not compatible and won't work properly, and it doesn't. It won't charge or sync, as I tried it with my computer next. I was hoping that maybe I would get some luck out of the USB port in my car. Still nothing! It's not worth the hassle of sending back. I am wary of "foreign" cords from eBay as many are "incompatible" and I already lost one iPhone because of a charge-port-related electrical problem. I thought buying one straight from Apple would actually work! Guess I was wrong.

    The worst

    • Written by from Nottingham

    I bought 3 of these and all 3 broke in 2 months. The lightning plug on 2 of them just fell out and the other one just quit working. I wouldn't recommend this cable anyone. The best cable I have found is the Apple one and it still doesn't last that much longer. If I hadn't thrown out the boxes that these Belkin cables came in I would have sent them back to where they came from!!!!!!

    I wish Apple would have stayed with the 30 pin cable I still have a iPad 2 with the original cable that is 4 years old!

    Poor quality - doesn't work at all

    • Written by from Evanston

    Just got one of the belkin 6" usb lightning cables - which didn't work at all. Not connected to my mba, nor to any usb wall chargers. Belkin should be embarrassed for letting these into the market without having a better QA/QC system in place.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I have a blue and pink one for the car and syncing to my Air. I have been using the products for 3 months and have had no issues. I find the cables much sturdier than the Apple product ones! (I've gone through 3 apple ones in the last year).

    I have not experienced any of the issues anyone else is voicing on here and that's why I thought it was important for me to put up me review. My only beef is that the cord is to short to do a counter plug charge. A 12" would be ideal :)

    Not reliable

    • Written by from Grand Junction

    I am very disappointed that we purchased 10 of these cables and they have not worked with our USB external Energizer battery pack. I thought at first, that it was the battery, but the standard cable included with the ipad works fine. These cables always say "not charging" and don't charge. It's a bummer because we needed a shorter cable that would not get tangled on things or get broken because of being tied up, when they are out reading electric meters.

    Perfect for the car

    • Written by from Hollywood

    The size of this cable is perfect for the car. No more extra long cable to get caught up in the console. Tucks in and charges perfectly,
