      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.

      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.

      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.

      I've had (mostly) good experiences with my lightning to USB cables: I purchased an iPod Touch in December 2013 and received my first ever lightning to USB cable I've had (mostly) good experiences with my lightning to USB cables: I purchased an iPod Touch in December 2013 and received my first ever lightning to USB cable. It eventually stopped working by early 2015 and - after attempting (and failing) to charge with an "unauthorised" charger - I purchased another cable in June 2015. To date, this charger is still working. The only downside is that the protective covering it has completely gone, leaving the insides exposed. I will purchase another cable as a backup until this one stops working.
