    Incredibly solid construction!

    Ya, we're just talking about a lightning cable, but dang, this thing is built well. The braided cable is a bit thicker than most, but that lends to the durability. Quite flexible, does not get tangled and knotted like non-braided cables - just darn good. Connections on each end are very solid as well and there is very little risk of damaging the connections due to bending. Also comes with a very nice (maybe a little overkill) leather (maybe synthetic) cord wrap that is convenient with a little button closure. If you're looking for the nicest lightning cable around, this very well could be it.

    A cable is a cable for the most part. However, with iPhone cables I think we can all agree that they're quite flimsy at times. I've gone through quite a few even through normal use so having a sturdier, beefy cable is probably a sound investment. These seem to be up to the task. Connections seem reinforced and beefy so hopefully they won't break apart like OEM cables seem to do. Haven't had any issues with charging/data transfer with these either. Only time will tell if these hold up over repeated use. I think they should so here's hoping they last longer.

    So, my husband always likes to keep plugged in at home so we put this on his iPhone 7 Plus to see how he liked it. The build quality of the cord is AWESOME , so is the length of the cord and the leather buckle is a nice addition. The bad news is that this cord is not built around if you have a phone case. We had to push hard just to get the cord to fit in with the case. The plug needs to be smaller in profile to fit with cases. Therefore we cannot suggest this due to the unfriendly nature of the plug profile if your case won't allow the plug.

    All in all this cable is good. Its not made of a cheap plastic on the outside, but rather a nice nylon material that enforces the strength of the cord. Its also no flimsy like other cables ive used in the past. The cable comes with a little leather button loop that holds the cable in a secure bundle too, this makes storage easy. All in all, a nice solid build and a smooth outside makes this cable worth picking up.

    the iphone cable Apple should have made

    As ubiquitous as Apple devices are, I'm sure everyone is painfully well aware of Apple's included extremely short, fragile, lightning cables. I'm OCD with everything, but still I find the cable fraying at the connecting point. The Belkin is amply long so I don't feel tethered to the corner of the room when charging my phone, and the braided material feels nice in the hand. The joint where the cable and the ends meet feel nice and beefy, so I expect this to be much more durable than the first party Apple cables.

    What Should Have Come With Phone

    Very simple. This is the cable that should have come with my iPhone. This cable feels like a quality cable should. There is support where the cable meets the plugs. This should provide more than adequate protection against breaking the cable at it's weakest point. One odd choice was the cable tie. It is leather and has a snap button. It feels... Like a leather bracelet. If that is something you like, you will love this. It just feels out of place with the rest of the cable. Overall. This is an outstanding cable.

    One of the Better Lightning Cables I Have Ever Had

    Braided fabric covers this 6 foot lightning cable. The reinforcements at each of the two cable ends is very beneficial in relieving cable stress and strain making this a very durable cord. I have my iPhone in a thin Spigen case and the cord end fits very nicely through the case. A handy little leather snap closure strap is included to keep the cord neat and tangle free when stowed away or in your pocket. Other than the fact I wanted a black cord and was sent a white cord, it's just about perfect.

    I wanted a longer cable for more freedom to use my IPad Pro as it charges. While this cable is only about a foot longer than the original, it actually helps. The lightening end easily fit in my tablet even with the protective case on. It seems much better than the original cable because of the heavy braiding, instead of plastic. The charge was fast. The cute leather wrap makes it easy to store. I like my new charger and time will tell if it will hold up better than the original.

    The Belkin Duratek Plus Lightning Cable is just what I have been looking for in a lightning cable. I have always had issues with having to replace my lightning cables due to fraying or other connectivity issues. This cable is built to last and is very durable and easily transportable with the convenient strap that wraps around the cable.

    this belkin duratek lightning cable is made of premium materials and feels very strong and durable. the braided cable looks and feels very nice and should resist wear and tear better than the plastic most cables use. the leather buckle is a nice classy touch and keeps your cable wrapped up and tangle free. Charging and data transfer worked as it should, no issues with compatibility with any of the apple products I've used it with.

    FYI, this says 6' cable but I got the 4' cable. I believe they are identical other than length. Cable works great and seems durable, comes with a leather tie to keep neat. Charges my old iPad fine, does not include a wall plug so if you need that you'll have to buy separately. I am a fan of the leather tie because I like to keep my cables neat and think it keeps them from getting prematurely worn. Good buy

    My wife and I love this Belkin lightning cable. You can see and feel that this cable is much more sturdy and durable than the regular cable that comes with an Iphone or Ipad. We also enjoy the added length to the cable. The only complaint from my wife is the snap that the cable comes with, she wishes that it can be removed. Other than that minor complaint, we both highly recommend the Belkin lightning cable.

    The older version of this cable had a larger lightning cable head that made it incompatible with many cases. Bellingham has shaved off just enough in this version to make it the right size! The cable is sturdy at the bend point and shows no sign of coming apart like many do. Bellingham also includes a chic little leather cable manager that makes it easy to wrap up and throw in a bag.

    Reviewing the cable for what it does, it does very well. Great build quality, good length and the ends are built to take abuse to avoid failing. All this give the cable a solid 5 stars but I must take a star off for the cost. Too many other options on the market that are as durable at half the cost. I would buy again but at half the price.

    I have been using my Belkin - DuraTek Lightning Cable for over a week now and all I can say is that I love it! I have purchased previous Apple chargers before that always give me trouble or don’t fully charge or just stops working. This charger (so far) has been great and doesn’t over heat my phone. I would recommend this to a friend.

    This cable is miles better than the Apple charging cables. It was a little pricier but I foresee it lasting for a really long time. It seems to charge faster than the Apple cables as well. Without a doubt it’s 10x more durable and I don’t see myself having to buy a new one again. Will be picking up a few more for sure!

    I like when companies think of the consumer. In this case they thought that people walk around with way too many cords and it would be nice to have one served the purpose of charging as well as connecting to a computer as well as rolling up in your pocket without unrolling. This product is worth your time and your money.

    It’s a lightening cable so you don’t expect anything exciting. But this one appears to be much better as far as not as likely to fall apart quickly like the oem ones seem to do. The extra length is also a plus. If you’re looking for something that seems durable with some length this is definitely worth looking into.

    This cord seems to d a great replacement for the white cords from Apple that seem to always be kinking and wearing out. The outer protection feels almost like fabric. It has a snap attached to the cord which is handy. The cord is labeled as black but is not but is rather a dark gray or maybe charcoal.

    Durable cord for IPhones and IPads

    There is nothing special to a regular lighting charging cord and tend to tangle and wear out fairly quickly. The Belkin DuraTek Plus cord is different because it doesn't tangle and is durable for heavy use. The handy strap is great for keeping the cord wrapped up when not in use.
