      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.

      Class action lawsuit, anyone?

      Each month, it seems like I spend more money on these cables, in every and any possible flavor, than I do on my cell phone bill. These, the ones that ship with Each month, it seems like I spend more money on these cables, in every and any possible flavor, than I do on my cell phone bill. These, the ones that ship with the apple products are the only ones that work, Unfortunately, they are about as durable as a chocolate teapot. I'm truly at a loss as to what I have to do to keep my iphone charged.

      3 cables in 4 years seems like a record

      I've survived with 3 of these over my 3 phones that use it. The first one failed and the phone stopped charging so in the bin it went. The second one which was I've survived with 3 of these over my 3 phones that use it. The first one failed and the phone stopped charging so in the bin it went. The second one which was chewed on by my dog actually outlived the third one when I returned to it after the third failed and decided to tape it back together. It really is sad that one that was nearly destroyed by an animal outlives two perfectly good ones; horrid quality... Make them better or just move to Micro-USB like everyone else... Despite your cool "features" that come with the cords they have shoddy workmanship and fail to provide.

      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.
