    Repeatedly fails. Don't buy it.

    Tomorrow I will be returning this cable to Apple. This is the THIRD cable I have had and just like the last two it has failed after less than 3 months of use. I really wanted this to work as it was a great length and looked good. But it doesn't last. Don't waste your money. If you do decide to take a chance on it, make sure you keep your receipt. You'll probably need it.

    Quickly breaks

    • Written by Nicholas R from Cardiff

    I bought this cable because I needed the long length and, as far as I know, it's the only 3m Lightning cable available at the time of purchase. I had used the griffin and Mophie 3m cables in the past, both of which lasted roughly 11 months. However, this Native Union cable only lasted 4 weeks of normal use charging at night on the bedside table. Now the cable does not charge unless tightly bent at 180* to itself and the "this accessory may not be supported" message comes up every time.

    The weighted movable part of the cable is a nice idea but in my opinion is a bit cumbersome and in reality not that useful.

    I will exchange the cable for a new one and update how long that lasts.
