      Never buy an Apple charger.

      These cords are nowhere near worth the money Apple asks for. One may think that if you go to the company that makes your phone to get your charger you are going These cords are nowhere near worth the money Apple asks for. One may think that if you go to the company that makes your phone to get your charger you are going to get the best product. This is wrong when it come to an iPhone charger. For 30 dollars you get 3 good months, maybe, before the smaller end of the cord twist, expose the wires and ultimately break the cord. This is my third charger in the part 18 months and I am not dealing with this cycle anymore. I will look for a cheaper charger with better quality somewhere else. I would recommend you do as well.

      bab quality of lightning to usb cable (2m)

      It would help me to explain my pain of having a bad quality of apple lightning to usb cable after a year of use with it sitting on my office desk. if this si It would help me to explain my pain of having a bad quality of apple lightning to usb cable after a year of use with it sitting on my office desk. if this site allows user to upload a photo shot of problem product . After a year of weekdays usage of this calbe at my work desk , daily charge, the power charge still works but the rubber cover near the lightning connector (1 cm) seems tear off the near end of 2m thin rubber wrap. After the external rubber wrap tear off, the inner power cords are exposed. i think it is a bad quality of the material used for the 2m long rubber wrap.

      Useful & Reliable

      I've been using this cable with a small USB-C brick next to my nightstand for around 6 months and it's worked out great. I purchased this cable and power adapte I've been using this cable with a small USB-C brick next to my nightstand for around 6 months and it's worked out great. I purchased this cable and power adapter because I have an iPad Pro 12" which charges substantially faster from the USB-C cable than a typical lightning charger. I chose the 2m cable so I could have my phone or iPad plugged in to charge while sitting in bed. The cable doesn't show any signs of strain, though I make a point to avoid twisting the end around too much.

      True quick charge

      I have used many cables over 2 years with my IPad 10.5 pro. Before I bought this cable I tried others that did not deliver. I have had this cable about a year. I have used many cables over 2 years with my IPad 10.5 pro. Before I bought this cable I tried others that did not deliver. I have had this cable about a year. I put stress protectors on both ends. I clean the cable connectors with electrical cleaner. I clean and cover the lightning port. As I write this review I am using this old cable. To this day, this cable charges my tablet at about 1% per minute While I Use the Tablet. I do keep the display below half it charges faster. You may think the cable is expensive, I will say I have spent much more on the multiple back up cables that are long gone. That’s why I am buying a second one. It’s cheaper in the long run rather than the frustration of lesser quality cables. I include the cheaper Apple cables as well. In order to get True Quick Charge you Must use a high watt charger with USB C and an Apple Quick Charge cable. My iPad requires a 29w charger. I can truly say I have never been sorry. I just love watching the % go up as I use the tablet. It has charged 10% as I’m writing this review, and again this cable is a year old😊

      Pricey but nice...

      I have purchased both the 1m & 2m. I’ve been using this for my iPad Pro 10.5” (2nd gen), iPhone X and iPhone XS Max. Worth the additional money to enable the “q I have purchased both the 1m & 2m. I’ve been using this for my iPad Pro 10.5” (2nd gen), iPhone X and iPhone XS Max. Worth the additional money to enable the “quick charge” capabilities (when used with the 18w). So far, no issues with the cord at all. I’ve been using the 2m “USB to Lighting” cables since 2017 timeframe, no issues at all with those. This USB-C to Lighting cable feels more durable than those and pose a great longevity. I recommend this if you have an iPad or iPhone that has the fast charge capabilities. Far superior than the slow 5w & 1m cord it comes with.

      How is this $35

      I am honestly that guy that defends Apple in almost everything they do. I love the design of their products and they add a lot of value to my life, and at this I am honestly that guy that defends Apple in almost everything they do. I love the design of their products and they add a lot of value to my life, and at this point I’m shoulder-deep in their ecosystem. But how can they possibly justify attaching a $35 price tag to this cable???? It does feel slightyyy chunkier than the USB-A > Lightning cable (2m) that I have, so that’s nice. Maybe this one will last me longer than a year before strain relief damage splits the sheathing... maybe not. (I wish I had a pair of calipers to measure, but the diameter increase seems to be just a fraction of a millimeter.) But I’m only buying one because I recently upgraded my iPad Pro, so I now carry a USB-C power brick around with me everywhere I go and want to be able to charge my iPhone with it. This is been my solution for years – I certainly don’t want to carry 2 chargers with me everywhere. It’s bad enough that I just had to buy this cable because the iPhones have not yet made the transition to USB-C (I’m assuming they will this year). So anyway I know that there are inevitable growing pains when transitioning from one I/O standard to another, and it makes sense that some products would be first to adopt the change, what with independent product-release cycles and all. But at $35, it’s like I’m being punished for dropping the thousand dollars to upgrade my iPad. I don’t understand why they aren’t trying to help out people like me that are caught in the awkward middle ground as Apple goes about staggering USB-C introduction in their product line. Instead they clearly see this as an opportunity to profit off a $35 cable. I mean honestly the profit margin must be gargantuan.
