    Disappointment

    • Written by Racheal K from South Australia

    Bought this cable a few months ago and the charging tip broke so quickly. Went to complain about it but apparently there’s no point because it’s not covered by any sort of warranty. Just a waste of money. Belkin should make better cables!

    Very very poor quality

    • Written by Shehzad H from Huddersfield

    Terrible quality, plastic head cracks within a few moths of using. Joining rubber split so metal is exposed. Don’t buy unless you want to set your house on fire or get an electric shock.

    Quick to spoil!

    • Written by Yurong L from Singapore

    I bought the cable at an apple store at the end of July and it spoiled in the mid of September. Despite using the cable at one power outlet the whole time, I'm not sure how it gave in so quickly.

    Below expectations and dangerous

    • Written by eloise W from Penarth

    Initially pleased with the cable due to its length and the benefits that provided. I now have 2 of these cables which have had problems very quickly (within 2 months of use). Similar to other reviewers, wires are now exposed and dangerous. Far from being just an expensive waste of money, these are dangerous and need supervised use. They are supposed to be a quality product. I have concluded that gravity is an issue as the pull separates the components, therefore exposing the wires.

    Buyer beware

    • Written by debra A from gillette

    I wish I had listened to the reviews instead of blindly having faith in Apple when it comes to there chargers.im on my third one and after a couple weeks the cords started just fraying and pulling away at the part that plugs into the iPad.i wish I could upload pictures to show everyone. When I first got them I thought they would be heavy duty and durable because the wire looked to have a really thick coating .but it’s just an illusion. I still like the iPads more or less but I have to advise against buying a charger from Apple. Apple I hope you read this, you get good money from us for quality products it’s time you start pulling your weight and delivering .stop producing these garbage chargers and get something on the shelf that won’t ruin our devices and will actually benifit us”the common folk “.

    Disappointing!

    • Written by Andrew M from Linlithgow

    I bought this cable from an Apple Store after being recommended it by a shop assistant who assured me this would be as good quality as an official Apple cable due to it being an approved accessory.
    Initially, the cable seems to be of good quality... This was short lived. After approximately 1 month use, the cable began to part at the lightning connector head. I was very careful. After 2 months of being even more gentle, the wires were exposing even more. Eventually, the cable gave up and won't charge my phone.
    Very disappointing from an approved accessory.

    Very poor quality. Do not buy!

    • Written by S-L J from Falmouth

    Initially, I was pleased to have such a long, apparently sturdy cable, but within three months of normal use, the wires became exposed. I had always taken great care to remove it gently, holding onto the protective plastic piece where it inserts into the iPad. The cable is heavier and stiffer than Apple's own cables and I can only conclude that the fraying is due to the effect of gravity pulling on a weak area near the protective plastic insert. I have had numerous cables for various devices and have never had this problem before. It actually gave me an electric shock!

    Have it for 6months and it still works great.

    • Written by Arthur S from Scotch Plains

    Purchase this for charging my iPhone and iPads nightly. Wanted it for the length and heavy duty cable.
    Going to get another for traveling.

    • Written by Robyn R from Waltham abbey

    I had it for a few months and it was good; charged my phone with no issues. All of a sudden today I smelt burning and I found the end of this lead was melted into my carpet! Lucky I found it when I did it could have set my front room alight with my baby in it!!

    • Written by Angela H from Ridgeland

    This only lasted for three weeks before it stopped charging. It also didn’t charge that quickly, either. I returned it for a full refund.

    Love this cable!

    • Written by Jessica K from Reidsville

    I purchased the 10 ft charge-USB cable about 4 months ago. I absolutely love how fast my device charges and the fact that the cable is so long that I don't have to sit on top of an electrical outlet when I need to use my device while it's charging. I never read any reviews before purchasing this product so I had no clue how many other customers had the same problem with the wiring pulling out from the end that plugs into the device. I couldn't figure out why it happened in such a short length of time because I never unplug my device by pulling on the cable. I recently contacted Belkin to inform them of my problem and to my surprise, I was informed that Belkin products were warrantied. I had no clue! I was informed that someone would be in touch with me regarding my cable. I was even more surprised when less than a week later (before even hearing back from Belkin), I received a package via UPS from Belkin with a BRAND NEW cable just like my damaged cable! No questions asked, Belkin sent me a replacement cable and didn't even require me to go through the aggravation of mailing my damaged cable back to them. My product may not have lasted long but the fact that Belkin replaced it, no questions asked, makes me 100% satisfied with my decision to purchase one of their products. I'm now a forever Belkin customer!

    A great replacement for Apple's own charge lead.

    • Written by Mark B from Leamington Spa

    I purchased this as my original Apple charge lead has already started to fray at the 'Lighting' end already after a short time.

    This Belkin one is longer and the design material of the lead looks to be of a thicker and higher quality that others. I've been using it now for a few days and found no issues or problems with it.

    I would recommend this item if your looking for a new/replacement lead for your device and one that is much longer then leads included with iPhones and iPads.

    Absolute garbage, a waste of money and time

    • Written by Marco A B from Belo Horizonte

    Bought this at Apple Pacific Center in Vancouver. Asked them if they had a 3m charging cable, and was recommended this by a store salesman. Even though it is from a third party, I assumed that I was getting a quality product, since I was at Apple's own store.

    Needless to say, it doesn't work properly. Whenever you plug your phone in, it will show the green battery icon and make the charging chime, but after some time, battery percentage will have either stayed the same or gone down. Sometimes it stops charging altogether and you need to flip the plug. The finish/quality, especially on the USB plug, is not good either.

    Don't waste your time and money buying this. Apple should absolutely remove this from their stores, it almost feels like a scam.
