    Excellent Quality

    This cable looks good, is great quality, and has built in cable management. It cost a little more than a basic cable, but it is worth it. All of the cables that came with my Apple phones failed near the connector. This one has a strong fiber jacket, but is just as flexible as the original cable. The cables connectors have lite speckles of gray and the leather strap has a gunmetal like clasp. It is a good look. The leather strap is snuggly mounted to one end, but can slide a bit, if you like to leave a little cable at each end. It really works to keep the cable neatly wrapped.

    The only OEM replacement!

    The Belkin 6' Black Duratek Plus Lightning Cable is the only go-to replacement for the OEM charging cables and the way the OEMs should be. This cable is, out of the box, far superior in every way to the OEM and most other aftermarket cables. The rugged design is apparent the minute you pick it up. The braided/fiber cable screams "try and brake me!" The ends are reinforced by extended covers which help prevent pinching, bending, and breaking at the connectors like so often happens to the OEMs. The leather/button feature is an awesome touch as it helps keep your cord tidy and from flopping around. 6-foot is perfect length and the cable allows for high-speed charging! PROS - Belkin quality and features - Strong, reinforced, rugged! - Leather/button strap is perfect for this cable and not too bulky or obtrusive. - Solid build ensures years of use without damage and worry-free usage. - 6 foot is perfect for nearly any use, strap off the length you don't need if it is to long! CONS - NONE!

    The better mousetrap

    The Belkin Duratek Plus Lightning Cable is simply the better mousetrap in every respect. The cable that comes with your Apple products is good quality. But this thing is next level. In the past I have had multiple cables break at the joints. Mainly because my son will just grab the body of the cable and pull it out of the phone or iPad. When you do that, it causes stress on the cable at the connection where the plug meets the cable. In time it will break it at least stop working. The joints on this cable have some flex to them. So my hope is the even when exposed to my teenager it will last over time at least a little bit longer than the standard cables. Since I cannot change the habits of my son, this became a great option for me. First I liked the fact that it is longer. It's about 6 feet long and more than enough for my nightstand where I charge it at night. Where as before I'd plug in the phone and it would barely reach the table top. I love the smooth nylon braiding around the cable. I feel it will really minimize the chance it the cable being damaged when exposed to sharp objects. By far the best part is that it comes with a small leather snap that will allow you to coil the cable and the snap it closed so it maintains the coil. Great for storage and even better for the simple fact the cable will not get into knots. All and all this is a great purchase and you will be happy with your choice. By far the best I have seen on the market so far. Educate yourself before you buy. Do you want the $5 cable you can get online that will break in a month? Or do you want own that will last longer and is simply better quality? That is your choice. This cable is the one I'd choose.
