    The Lightning Cable/Connector IS NOT USB/Micro USB type of connector. Lightning type connection (sockets/inputs) are exclusively used in Apple's iOS compatible hardware. Other brands do not use it. However, most smart phones (Android and/or Windows based ones) use the micro USB type ports, instead of Lightning.
