    Useful if you have Apple Car Play/Android Auto

    I use it in my car to connect my phone using Apple Car Play. The cable is short and is not quite useful if you are looking for this as a charging cable using a wall adapter. It is best for the use within the car and makes it less messy if you don't like having long cables in your car. It serves the purpose and you should consider getting a longer version of this cable if you are looking for everyday use and not just within the car.

    Good for Shorter Cable Needs

    This is a suitable cable for shorter distance connections that do not require the typical 1 meter cable. At about half that length, you will not have as much extra cord hanging where it might otherwise get in the way. Sadly, Apple's cables are known for failing when the external jacket breaches near the connector with repeated wear, so take that into consideration along with the price, which is not half the cost of the 1 meter cable as you might expect.

    Its as basic as basic gets. 1.5' charging cord for lightning enabled iOS devices. I only bought it because we needed to charge an iPad for work. Everyone but my boss has android phones so we needed to buy a cord. I immediately got back to the office and encased the cord in a folder to make sure my boss doesn't steal it for his phone. 4 stars to get people to read the review... in reality its an apple product, so 1 star

    Great cable for a car charging situation

    Went into the store to pick up another cable because I had accidentally taken my car cable into the house. Bought this thinking it was a regular cable, but was surprised to find out it was a smaller length. Come to realize that 1.5’ is a MUCH better length for a car than the standard cable that comes with the phone. One of those cases where you “duh” after the fact. I will always get this size for future car purchases.

    Standard Apple Charging Cable

    I purchased this charging cable to replace one that wore out (hence the four star rating). I buy Apple cables because I've had reliability issues with third-party cables. I buy them as stocking stuffers during the holidays because Best Buy has run a 25% off three accessories during the holiday season. These cables are rarely on sale, so getting them at 25% off is a nice savings.

    Shorter cable

    Accidentally bought this cord when in Dubai at the airport, ended up loving the length, it goes great with one of those rechargeable battery pack chargers. Length is also perfect to plug into my car charger and then stick to my magnetic mount on my vents. That cord slowly came to the end of its life after 2 years by unraveling at the ends, so I was so happy when I found this same length at best buy! Like they always say, use an apple charger for your iPhone!

    As good as the original

    Works just like the original. For the most part that is a good thing but only time will tell. All the Apple chargers I have ever owned perform well for about the first six months. The drawback to them is that over time they deteriorate quickly around the connections. I’m very surprised Apple has not correct this issue because it is a common problem with all their chargers. This charger is the perfect length for small cars.

    The length is well-advertised, but it is still somehow unexpectedly short. iPhones come with a longer cord, and it seems like you are buying a replacement with this cord, but it is quite a bit shorter. For a little more cost it is possible to buy a really long replacement cord. This cord works, but only if you desire a short cord.

    In the effort to save a few dollars I bought some cables for $5. (You get the inference) That $5 was a complete waste of money. Just do the right thing and spend a few dollara more on the right cable. It you spent over $1000 on a phone just spend a couple bucks more at Best Buy and get the right product the first time.

    Needed cable for Apple CarPlay

    I needed a short cable for my center console to use Apple CarPlay, and this little guy fit the need perfectly! The good: Perfect size to fit from the hidden USB in the center console to the surface of the console/armrest area The not so good: It's white, and stands out against my dark console, could prove to be interesting to thieves, so I keep it hidden when not in use

    Too short for anything

    The cord met my expectations but it was way too short. I had to exchange it for a longer one. I realized that when I’m in my car and it’s charging, my phone sits awkward because of the range I have. However, it’s good for a quick charge if you just plan to charge your phone and leave it alone like a charging station only.

    Great cord length for inside the car when you don’t need a longer cable getting in your way. Only thing that worries me is the durability, since the Apple cable seem to get damaged in time. Luckily I take good care of my electronics and accessories, so they last longer for me than most apparently. Thanks

    Apple Lightning Cable

    I needed a genuine Apple Lighting cable to hook up my iPhone to my Kenwood automobile stereo headunit. I was looking for a shorter cable. Best Buy was the only one who carried even this short of a cable. it works, but I wish I could have found a 6" cable and if it came in black it would be even better. I may even paint this cable black. Still looking, but this will do for now on.

    Cable too short

    BEWARE, this is not the standard length charging cord. The packaging needs to be changed to highlight the length of the cord. I did not notice that it was a 'Mini' cord or 'Short' cord until I took it out of the box to charge my IPhone. I was expecting the same size cord that came with the IPhone and will be returning this item.

    New Cord for Car

    Had to get a new cord for charging my phone in the car. When with the 1.6 meter thinking it would be better than having a longer cord. Unfortunately for my car, I wish it was only a few inches longer. It works, but would have been a bit better just a bit longer.

    I had a longer cable that I used to connect my iPad to my controller of my Phantom 4 Pro Drone's controller. I didn't like that It had to be looped 3-4 times. So I bought this shortened version. Cleaned things up. Its the perfect length.

    This cord was perfect for having a extra charging cord especially in my card. I was slightly disappointed in the size as I thought it would be a lot longer the same size as the one that came with my iPhone but instead it was a lot shorter. I ended up using it in my car and it's perfect for the front main console.

    This lightning cord is way too short for normal charging purposes, especially in instances where you may need to use your phone and charge at the same time. However, it works perfectly as a desk charger because the phone is still at your fingertips.
