    Cannot beat OEM product

    I know many of you don't like the fact about this Apple lighting cable. It's not going to last as long as the other aftermarket brand. But Apple use software to control you to spend more money on their products. Apple use a software to detect the current flow through your charge port to your battery. So your battery is no directly connect to charging port. I find this Apple lighting cable is the only cable that will charge your phone in a long run; even not going to last long. So just give Apple the $20 for this cable if you want to charge your iPhone, iPad, and many Apple products.

    Best bet to not have the iPhone say an annoying screen notifications of the wrong cord is to just but there cord that’s been designed to wear out rather quickly. I buy a lot of apple products that come with lightening cords and I just bring the cords back to the apple store when they start to fall apart, usually after about a year! Lol Apple will warranty for 1 year!! That’s how much confidence that have in the life span of there premium lightening cord! But I still buy the junk because the cord has the best chance of not sending annoying notifications of being the wrong cord.

    Not the Best

    I was going out of town on a girls trip and decided to purchase another charger for y phone instead of taking my home charger. I made this purchase from my local Best Buy. I never opened the charger, only packed it in my suitcase. When I got to Florida, I realized this doesn’t charge my phone nor does it support any of my Apple products. I vacationed in FL for 5 days and when I returned home and tried to exchange of course I was denied. I won’t say it was Best Buy because it was an apple product, I will say the customer service wasn’t great.

    Destined to Fail

    Apple’s cables are overpriced and they are poorly designed. The cables will eventually begin to bulge where the thin cable meets the Lightning connector. Unfortunately, cheaper cables I’ve purchased seem to stop working after a month or two with a dreaded, “This device is not supported.” message. This has been true even if the cable came from what I would consider a reputable source like Best Buy. So I slog it out buying overpriced Apple cables. At least I get around 10-12 months before I have to buy new ones.

    Great Cable, Absolute Compatibility, Wears Quickly

    This is an Apple lightning cable that will not run into any of the compatibility problems that third-party cables can. It works out of the box, like a charm. The problem, and the reason this is not 5 stars is that the cable does not wear well, especially near the lightning connector. The cable wears, will crack over time and will ultimately fail. Planned obsolescence at its best. Still, while it lasts, this is as good as it gets.

    The original cord went way too soon

    I had to buy a new cord, to replace the original cord that came with my I-pad pro. The cord had very little use on it, there is no visible damage to the original cord. At $20 a pop, having to buy one every 3 months would be ridiculous, and expensive. I hope the original cord was a fluke and this one has a much longer life than the original cord. The cord on my 2013 MacBook Pro is original, looks like it went through World War 3, and it still works like a champ.

    Ihave a very old hand-me -down iPad mini and lost the charger cable. I thought I would have trouble finding one because the original was only one-sided and my Mom told me don't lose this one...you will never find another one. Well I couldn't find a one so I went to Best Buy and they helped me test it out and showed me that the two-sided one really does work and it's been working great ever since. Love the product. Love Best Buy

    Apple - 3.3' Lightning to USB Cable. Normally come in white color. This USB 2.0 cable connects your iPhone, iPad or iPod with Lightning connector to your computer's USB port for syncing and charging. Or you can connect to the Apple USB Power Adapter for convenient charging from a wall outlet. Or with a car charger It works great never heats up or cause any problems. Since we have many Apple products we really rely on their products

    Basic Apple Lightning cable

    Bought the cable primarily because I forgot to bring one of the two Lightning cables I own with me and I needed one to sync my Apple Pencil to my iPad Pro. Turns out I could have plugged the Pencil directly into the Lightening port of the iPad. Now I have three Lightning cables. They fit snugly and so far seem sturdy enough. I'm sure with continuous use they will fray near the connectors like every previous Apple cable I've owned.

    Didn't have to call tech support

    I bought this cable on sale after going through many cheaper ones. Setup was easy and it worked out of the box without calling tech support. As promised, it was white. I didn't take the time to measure it, but I'm pretty sure it was 3.3 feet. When I plugged it into a charger and my phone, a green light went on. After searching through the internet I realized it was charging. Listen, Best Buy is giving me 25 points for this review so I think I should give them their money's worth.

    I am glad I decided to buy this Apple certified charger. The one that came with my iPhone had broke a while ago and I was constantly buying cheap non certified charger. They always broke so finally I decided to be smart and get a certified one at Best Buy. It has given me zero problems so far and I don’t think I will encounter any issues. It works great when plugged into my laptop, the wall and even my portable charger.

    I have been buying apple chargers for years. This one is no different than every other one I have bought. I hope it will last longer than the other chargers....I have bought knock off chargers and eventually they either break or I receive a message that they are not compatible with my phone. I gave up buying them and only buy apple products. If this charger last a year I will be happy.

    Apple OEM Charging Cable

    I left my iPhone charging cable at a hotel while traveling for business. I bought another cable, not from Best Buy that wasn't Apple. Even though I was assured it would charge my iPhone 8 Plus it did not. So I returned it and went to Best Buy and bought the Apple cable which works great. I should have done that in the first place.

    Half the Length of Standard Apple Cable

    I bought this cable for may laptop bag and use it to charge my phone while I'm on the road. The shorter length is very convenient for backing and limited desktop space and is still an authentic Apple charging cable. I buy these as stocking stuffers during the holidays because Best Buy usually offers 25% discount for three or more mobile phone accessories this time of year.

    The Best buy assistant showed me some other charging cables as well for my kid's iPhone charger that were a different brand, and cost less. I appreciated him showing the customer the variety, but after comparing several cables, we purchased the more expensive Apple cable because it seemed a lot more sturdy. There was an obvious difference in quality.

    This is a quality product, as expected. I needed this at the last minute, for I was 25 miles from home (at work) with an iPhone I had forgotten to charge for two days. I had about 10% charge remaining. I purchased it online and was able to pick it up quickly. I returned to work without missing much time. Bravo! Thank you, Best Buy!

    I have gone through several cables in my Apple-owning time, and I have found that although the cheap ones do work, they don't last as long and even the charge does not last as long as when you use a genuine Apple cable. Bought two of these, one for each car, and will probably have to buy another one to replace a non-Apple one that I use in my house that is fraying.

    I brought this because I need an extra charger for my iPhone, its the original one since it from Apple so no problems with it not being supported like some other third party chargers. For the price that you pay for this its well worth it, they last me a long time and the only reason that I'm getting a new one is because I needed an extra to have for my office.

    Awful junk

    It’s ridiculous that I am replacing these every few months, they always fray and ultimately break at mostly the lighting end. And syncing requires the Apple wire because of the built in chip, so less expo versions are more durable in some cases, but not full function. But I’m part of the captive audience and have no recourse.

    No Charge after 2 months!

    Bought a new Apple charger In store and it stopped charging with no visible damage on the outside and nothing has happened to it after only two months. Took it back to the store and they won’t even honor an exchange, Service counter was extremely rude. What choice do you have but to keep on buying them I guess.
