      horrible

      ive had this for just over 3 months and the cable near the lightning end is all scrunched up and now it won't charge my phone unless i spend 5 minutes maneuveri ive had this for just over 3 months and the cable near the lightning end is all scrunched up and now it won't charge my phone unless i spend 5 minutes maneuvering the phone into a specific position so that it will charge and then i can't even touch it otherwise it will disconnect. i like the idea of the lightning over the 30 pin, but in terms of quality and implementation, i am very disappointed by this piece of s product i received.

      TOO SHORT

      I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable. I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable. I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my MacBook for syncing and updating. Don't know why this hasn't been done much sooner!

      Verified to be 3.5 foot long cable - works with existing wall and car plugs

      I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. Abo I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. About the same as previous Apple charging cables. Really, Apple should make them all 6ft long, which is why I am giving this 4 stars. Since 3.5 feet is not usually long enough for most uses, search amazon for "white USB extension" from C2G in 3ft, 6ft or 9ft extension cables for about $2 to $5 dollars, which can then be put in between the wall power brick (or car port adapter) and this cable. Existing power transformers with a USB jack on them (for home or car power port) that worked with your iPhone 3gs, 4 or 4s, should work fine with this new cable and the iPhone 5. 1 amp (1a = 5 watts) is standard for iPhones. 2 amp (2a = 10 watts) is standard for iPads. But it's well known, that if you buy 2 amp (10w) power plug then your iPhone 5 will charge in about 60% of the time. I like the PowerGen brand 10w chargers from amazon for $10.

      Not durable

      I'd expect more from Apple since the phone costed over a few hundred dollars. Every time Apple comes out with a new product that requires their special cord tha I'd expect more from Apple since the phone costed over a few hundred dollars. Every time Apple comes out with a new product that requires their special cord that isn't universal, I feel is like a huge scam. I have gone through 2 cords so far and the wires aren't even frayed. I have ordered off-brand cables for a $2 each because those will likely last for just as long as an OEM one.

      Worst cable ever

      I'm extremely careful with my cables and every Apple cable I own stops working within a year. The cord gets frayed or it just stops charging. Bought a few 3rd p I'm extremely careful with my cables and every Apple cable I own stops working within a year. The cord gets frayed or it just stops charging. Bought a few 3rd party cords from the $5 dollar bin at Target and they work and have lasted so much longer!!! I'm still using one and it's been 2 years. Why is a $30 cord from Apple fail miserably, but a $5 cord from Target do the job? Apple needs to make a better product for the high price they charge!!!!
