      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.

      This charger is equivalent to water-trash

      This cord is no longer usable after 2 short months, it shorts out and goes back & forth from charging to not charging. When I purchased this cord it was used ex This cord is no longer usable after 2 short months, it shorts out and goes back & forth from charging to not charging. When I purchased this cord it was used exclusively in my car to connect my phone and charge/play music. It was not under tremendous stress and was not used a lot. This is not the first charger that has done this me. I have owned an iPhone 6S Plus for 10 months and I am on my 4th charger. About 4 weeks in it stopped working properly, it would go in and out of charging and I would have to maneuver the cord to just the right position for it to stay connected. After the 2 month mark it stopped working completely. This type of product responsibility is making it harder for me to continue using Apple products, most importantly the iPhone. This continuous problem with their own products shows they are not concerned about the consumer and their overall experience with their products. Couple this with the fact they are changing the design of the phone to not include a headphone jack and it puts it over the edge. Apple seems much more interested in squeezing every penny out of the consumer possible instead of creating a satisfied customer.

      If I could give zeros stars.

      DISGUSTINGLY Cheap I am beyond repulsed by such a USB cable. Why does it have to to so fragile. Apple can do better hands down the worst ever USB cable.

      worst apple product ever

      I have a lot of apple products, from iPads to iPhones, heck I'm writing this review from my Macbook pro, but this product is literally the worst product that Ap I have a lot of apple products, from iPads to iPhones, heck I'm writing this review from my Macbook pro, but this product is literally the worst product that Apple has ever produced. The worst thing of all is that you need this cable to charge your Apple products. So this review is more a plea to Apple to fix this product.
