      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!

      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.

      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.

      As expected

      An 8 pin connector, OEM, not a knock off obviously. Inside is a braided metal shield around the wiring (a red, a green, white, and bare) and silicone injected An 8 pin connector, OEM, not a knock off obviously. Inside is a braided metal shield around the wiring (a red, a green, white, and bare) and silicone injected near the connector for stress relief. A lot of people break these because they pull the connector out by yanking on the cord. Then, they complain about the product because it broke as a result. If you notice the cord looks scrunched up just below the connector, it's because you've damaged the cable removing it that way. Remove it while holding the connector itself, not the cord (hard plastic bit that goes into the phone. Can't miss it). The yellow staining on the cord is NOT electrical burnout or an issue with the cord. It's from your fingers, oils and grease that gets left behind when you pull on the cord instead of the connector.

      Terrible.

The contacts eventually either corrode or burn out, even if they are not exposed to moisture. Over the last 4 years and two iPhones, I have had to replace the lightning cable about every 2 to 4 months. Seriously. Sometimes this was under warranty, sometimes not. I have tried some third party lightning cables that fared no better, but were cheaper. So Apple overcharges us for a cable that is inherently defective to begin with. I cannot express just how unhappy I am with this situation. Having an exposed edge connector is a bad design, but it seems like the connectors can go bad just from charging. I stuck a third party lightning cable into my phone and the contacts burned out within a day. Yet the Apple brand lightning cables burn out eventually as well. Looking at the Apple forums it appears that a great many other people have had the same problem. The iPhone 7 coming out this fall will use lightning port to connect the headphones. What a disaster this will be.

      Terrible product

      These keep wearing out. The longest I've had on last is 6 months. This is ridiculous. Sometimes they just stop working altogether. Sometimes it repeatedly tries These keep wearing out. The longest I've had on last is 6 months. This is ridiculous. Sometimes they just stop working altogether. Sometimes it repeatedly tries to connect. At first this happens only when you touch the iPhone then later all the time even without touching. I thought better of Apple. This iPhone is the third I've had other cables (before this one for iPhone 6 were good.
