    This cable is very well manufactured. I love the sturdy construction. Built to last so it help when using it on the go. It also works well when syncing with my computer.

    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.

    I love official apple products when when another company sells the same item but IMPROVED quality it's a must have. The cord feels sturdy and less likely to wear and tear as fast as other lightning connecting cords.

    This product is great I think I like over the original Apple cord. It's sturdy and had a little weight to it.

    It is a pretty basic charging cable. It is much thicker than the original equipment, though and seems like it will last a while.

    With so many charging cables on the market, it is the little things that stand out. This cable has a neat leather cable tie and the cable is strong yet flexible. The length is just right for most uses and charges an iPhone effectively.

    This Belkin Duratek cable is very well built. It feels tough and like it will stand up to to the daily abuse most charging cables endure. Time will tell how well it holds up but it seems very durable.

    Great cord. Used it for an iPad that wore out another heavy duty aftermarket cord. Looks nice and appears to be high durability

    I received this product in return for my fair and unbiased opinion. Belkin's Duratek charge cables for iPhone fit a niche that some iPhone users have. They're a strong cable that won't easily fail from bending and flexing like many Lightning cables will. They support a full-speed 12 watt charge. The cloth overing over the cables definitely reinforces the strength of the wires. The connectors are some of the most solid on the market. The only two weak spots I can point out are the snap scratches very easily amd the price is just a little high compared to other options on the market. I can recommend this cable, but there are options that are just as good and not quite as expensive.

    This Belkin Duratek Lightning cable is a great option if you are looking for a new or extra lightning cable. It is elegant, and the included leather strap to tie it up for stow is a nice touch. All the materials used for this cable feel premium and strong. I can foresee this cable lasting me as long as I own my iPhone / iPad. Charging and data transfer all work as they should. No errors or compatibility issues with the cable. Belkin offers a 5 year warranty for this product! Pros - Elegant Design Strong bend and tangle free material Leather Tie 5 year warranty Cons - None

    A Stronger Cable (*2)

    Ok I've now gotten the 6' & 4' Belkin DuraTek Plus cables for the iPhone (black & white). Only had the first one fro 2 weeks when I realized how good it was and got another. It does not kink up and it seems so much stronger than an Apple cable. Having both lenghts is really nice. And with my 2.1A fast charger this cable does charge faster the the std Apple lightning cable (~20%). In my car I've Car Play, which requires my phone to be connected/disconnected whenever I get in/out of the car. I've had 2 other cables (one a the original Apple cable). The Apple cable cracked in the middle and exposed wires in under a year, it might have been kicked or tangled by a passanger, I plead innocent in it's abuse, but it didn't last, and it's damage concerned me. The Belkin DuraTek Plus cable has much stronger anchors at each base/end of the cable and the cable is much thicker (see picture). Instead if a plastic cable cover the Belkin cable has a woven fabric which bends less easily, but slides more smoothly. The difference in cable quality it noticable. And the list price of Belkin's DuraTek Plus matches the Apple's Lightning cable of the same length. With a 5 year warranty, and a convenient cable strap, the decision is easy. On Apple's web site their Apple branded cables get 2 stars. If you going to spend the money on a good cable, get a great cable from Belkin, it's Apple certified, and it will last.

    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.

    I chose these to test because let's face it, who cannot use an extra charging cable. However, upon opening the box it immediately became my daily driver. It is built very well, connects and charges perfect, and even has a convenient cable tie. Highly recommend!

    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.

    Highest quality lightning cable I've ever seen, let alone used. Seems strong, works well. Included leather strap is fancy. Value might not be completely worth it, but overall a very nice cable.

    I'm a big fan of Belkin products and this Lightening cable lives up to my expectations. Excellent construction as well as outstanding power delivery while charging. Not to mention outstanding data thru-put when transferring data via USB. Another outstanding Belkin product!

    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.

    In spite of the title above, this is the white belkin 4 ft DuraTek Plus lighting to USB-A cable + strap made for the iPhone and iPad. It took my iPad Air 2 from 4% battery to 89% battery charge in 3 hours while it was not being used. The cord feels sturdy and although I did not try to be brutal with it, I did twist and turn and pull on it some to simulate some passage of time and at this early stage, it held up well and appeared to be sturdy right at the junction of the cord and the attachments, where I've typically seen fraying or breakdown with the standard models. Although I've had it for a short time, the five year warranty suggests that the company is pretty confident that it will last and from what I see and have experienced so far, I think that it will. The addition of the strap is a nice feature, as well.
