    I had never used insignia before and only used dynex for all of my micro usb devices prior to getting this brand for my first apple product. I HIGHLY recommend both brands. I can only attest to using dynex micro usb for so long (and not their lightning cables) but for the short time i have used it, this brand for apple products actually works and charges fast as well. Better than the one i had from the start. Im not sure of the charge time difference ( and cannot compare since one is micro and the other is lightning) but they both charge fairly well for sure. Heres some technical aspects of both, since they are similar yet different in appearance. (Points are based off my experience using them in the Quirky pick up 6000 mAh power bank) Build: The cords are sturdy enough definitely. When both are plugged into my portable charger, if i drop it but manage to catch it by the cords they dont fall out normally (depending how fast its falling or where it fell from) But if jerked they MAY fall out, so 4 out of 5 points there. USB side plugged in: When tugged/ pulled on with normal force, dynex comes out faster than the insignia, nice job there. BUT when the cord is pulled or jerked with light force repeatedly, they both remain in place, 5/5 Lightning / micro usb side plugged in: Though they both hold pretty strong to the devices themselves, the insignia definitely holds stronger but you wont be disappointed with either. In the end its really all about your day to day use. still 5/5 Side Note: Not sure if the dynex brand would produce the same results for lightning cables as it does for their micro usb (in terms of my personal experience with what i reviewed above) but cant see how they would differ being from the same brand, you will need to go over to that review to see. Apparently lifeproof case users need to seek elsewhere with complaints about problems with the fit. And of course Color/Color options: Its not a straight blue like the Disney logo or a colored pencil but more of a Deep sea blue green, just more blue than green. Its very nice in case you dont want a color thats too bright then this is perfect. This just gets them bonus points really, plus im an artist, gotta have color. Bottom Line: Overall i am happy with the purchase and glad to know they are both still being sold! If Dynex still sells lightning cables by the time i need a new one (which wont be for awhile im hoping) ill have to test those out and see if they can beat these. So far no regrets.

    I will be honest, I send my husband in to get a single replacement wire for an android phone. He came out with a bunch of replacement wires for many devices and this Insignia 3' wire for my Apple phone was one of them. Knowing how little he spent and how much he got, I wasn't expecting much. I tend to be brand loyal for Apple wires because I thought all cheap ones would fail me rather quickly as other brands had. To my surprise, I love this wire. I use it on the road plugged into our converter in the van. It works with the USB plug from Apple as one would expect. I love that the color helps it from being confused with someone else's wire. I really think it is top quality and has been through so much already and is going strong.

    Over the years Iphone's are some of the greatest cell phones created. People may say its the best phone of all time. I'm sure a lot of people would agree with me that finding a good charging cable can be challenging. Really there is two ways in looking at this, one if your charging cable fails to work one day which it will. you can purchase a new cable from apple or your phone provider for $20 or more. I don't know about you but a light cable that cost a dollar to make but cost $20 to buy is crazy. Or you can go to your local Best Buy buy a Insignia charging cable that cost a whole $1.65 that works perfectly. For some reason it doesn't work your out a buck and some change. I call this a win win. Buy it its worth it.

    I bought an iPhone 5 used which came with a cable that didn't allow me to sync. Part of the process of moving from the old iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5 is to backup the old iPhone 4 then restore onto the new iPhone 5. Well, with a non-working cable (which works for charging only) I was stuck. I went to bestbuy.com and found this Insignia brand sync and charging iPhone 5 lightning cable. It works GREAT, better than the original. I use it as my master cable the "known working" one. Anything else is good for charging, but not much else. Oh yeah, I guess I could have gone with an Apple genuine cable, but I looked that up and it's $20+. For me, I'm thinking if the Insignia works the same, I don't see a reason $12 or another way of saying it "spending 75% more" for the Apple one.

    As I used almost 3 chargers out of which two are apple branded usb chargers one came with iphone it self and the other I bought after the cut at the edge of the charger and after even the second one stopped working (electricity didn't pass to iphone as wires are cut at the edge) so I bought the one with metallic cover. Even it didn't stand as the usb and wire got detached. So, The sales person in best buy suggested to got with this product where you get 2 chargers almost or less in price than the previous ones. So, lil satisfied that there is an other one left with me if at all the existing one doesn't work. I am happy buying this because most of the usb chargers for iphone does have a problem of wire detachment or cut.

    Got these on sale for cheap about 3 weeks ago. My original Apple chargers were just not cutting it and were too expensive to keep replacing every 6 months or so! Anyways, I like this brand from my experience with a previous item I have of theirs. I bought 6 of these. 4 work wonderfully but unfortunately 1 stopped working almost 1 week in, and another one my husband accidentally broke the tip off of it when he, in a hurry pulled his phone off the desk, forgetting it was plugged in. I exchanged one for another one since it was within the 15 day exchange policy. But the one with the broken tip I tossed out and didn't bother exchanging it since I didn't think it was their fault that it broke.

    I wish i could write something positive about this charger, and i'm really sorry to write that i can't. I have had others Non-Apple Chargers and for a lack of not paying an extortion amount of money for an Apple Charger of $ 40.00, That being said, i don't want others to get stuck with a useless item. Yes it will work a couple of times in the beginning , i bought this charger only a couple of days ago, and already i'm having a hard time charging up my I-Pad Air. I now have to force the charging on my I-Pad far too offen, Please don't buy it, Please Don't Thank You

    My charger that came with my iPhone broke & my husbands was on the brink, so I purchased this replacement twin pack. While my husband's worked fine, mine was broken within 48 hours. I went back to the store for a replacement. Despite the initial issue, it has worked fine since. It has been about a month without issue. It is a charger, it works or it doesn't. The only thing keeping me from giving it a five is that I had a problem with 1 of the 2 initial chargers. Not sure if it was a fluke, but replacement has been without issue. It is the first time I have ever had to purchase a replacement for a charger, but it works fine. It was disappointing and inconvenient to have to replace the initial purchase though.
