    Quantity Over Quality

    • Written by Rhonda B from Fallbrook

    I am past the stage to plea for better and more durable accessories such as cables and adapters because I need to purchase yet another defective cable. I’ve purchased many different types from various places, to be fair, most other cables are not that much better. It is obviously all about the money for Apple instead of quality, durability, and pride in good workmanship. I had such confidence in apple products but that is dwindling for sure. I do feel their products are still the best BUT for how long? So for now I will purchase another cable but this time I am applying a shrink tube on both ends and possibly the whole cable before I even use it. I shouldn’t have to do this.

    Great for 9 months

    • Written by Meghan S from Westminster

    I ordered this in February of 2018, used it daily, consistently, for about nine months. In mid-November, the thing crashed. It's a cable, so how can it crash? I don't know. All I know, is I would plug it into something, and immediately the port or outlet would stop working. I have a usb-port strip with four ports in it. When it's plugged into the wall, it glows to show it's on and working. As soon as I would plug this cord in, the light would shut off, and the strip would stop charging anything that had been plugged into it. The phone didn't even have to be connected to the cord, it would just shut something off. So, this product was just what a needed--until it died on me.

    After just a few months of use, it began to rip and eventually stopped working. Not very durable at all.

    It works...

    • Written by Daniel O from Yuma

    As an Apple consumer since 1983, I'm accustomed to paying a premium for Apple products whether I like it or not. I've tried aftermarket cables for Apple products and found them to be less reliable than the Apple brand. Granted, the Apple cables themselves don't seem to last as long as they should but until Apple goes completely wireless for charging, there isn't much else we can do.

    Nice length, not too durable

    • Written by Shawn C from Ontario

    I purchased this a couple of years ago because the length of he cable is quite nice for charging next to my bed. I've tried off brand cables but they just didn't last. I did however expect this to last longer than it did. This cable never moves. It stays next to my bed, I plug my phone in once every couple of days. And yet it is already falling apart! The outer jacket nearest the Lightning connection has broken open. And this cable is hardly tampered with! Not at all impressed considering the price I payed for it. Should still be in one piece! Makes it look like I don't take care of my things!
