    Better than my original

    I had never used insignia before and only used dynex for all of my micro usb devices prior to getting this brand for my first apple product. I HIGHLY recommend both brands. I can only attest to using dynex micro usb for so long (and not their lightning cables) but for the short time i have used it, this brand for apple products actually works and charges fast as well. Better than the one i had from the start. Im not sure of the charge time difference ( and cannot compare since one is micro and the other is lightning) but they both charge fairly well for sure. Heres some technical aspects of both, since they are similar yet different in appearance. (Points are based off my experience using them in the Quirky pick up 6000 mAh power bank) Build: The cords are sturdy enough definitely. When both are plugged into my portable charger, if i drop it but manage to catch it by the cords they dont fall out normally (depending how fast its falling or where it fell from) But if jerked they MAY fall out, so 4 out of 5 points there. USB side plugged in: When tugged/ pulled on with normal force, dynex comes out faster than the insignia, nice job there. BUT when the cord is pulled or jerked with light force repeatedly, they both remain in place, 5/5 Lightning / micro usb side plugged in: Though they both hold pretty strong to the devices themselves, the insignia definitely holds stronger but you wont be disappointed with either. In the end its really all about your day to day use. still 5/5 Side Note: Not sure if the dynex brand would produce the same results for lightning cables as it does for their micro usb (in terms of my personal experience with what i reviewed above) but cant see how they would differ being from the same brand, you will need to go over to that review to see. Apparently lifeproof case users need to seek elsewhere with complaints about problems with the fit. And of course Color/Color options: Its not a straight blue like the Disney logo or a colored pencil but more of a Deep sea blue green, just more blue than green. Its very nice in case you dont want a color thats too bright then this is perfect. This just gets them bonus points really, plus im an artist, gotta have color. Bottom Line: Overall i am happy with the purchase and glad to know they are both still being sold! If Dynex still sells lightning cables by the time i need a new one (which wont be for awhile im hoping) ill have to test those out and see if they can beat these. So far no regrets.

    I will be honest, I send my husband in to get a single replacement wire for an android phone. He came out with a bunch of replacement wires for many devices and this Insignia 3' wire for my Apple phone was one of them. Knowing how little he spent and how much he got, I wasn't expecting much. I tend to be brand loyal for Apple wires because I thought all cheap ones would fail me rather quickly as other brands had. To my surprise, I love this wire. I use it on the road plugged into our converter in the van. It works with the USB plug from Apple as one would expect. I love that the color helps it from being confused with someone else's wire. I really think it is top quality and has been through so much already and is going strong.

    Over the years Iphone's are some of the greatest cell phones created. People may say its the best phone of all time. I'm sure a lot of people would agree with me that finding a good charging cable can be challenging. Really there is two ways in looking at this, one if your charging cable fails to work one day which it will. you can purchase a new cable from apple or your phone provider for $20 or more. I don't know about you but a light cable that cost a dollar to make but cost $20 to buy is crazy. Or you can go to your local Best Buy buy a Insignia charging cable that cost a whole $1.65 that works perfectly. For some reason it doesn't work your out a buck and some change. I call this a win win. Buy it its worth it.

    Got these on sale for cheap about 3 weeks ago. My original Apple chargers were just not cutting it and were too expensive to keep replacing every 6 months or so! Anyways, I like this brand from my experience with a previous item I have of theirs. I bought 6 of these. 4 work wonderfully but unfortunately 1 stopped working almost 1 week in, and another one my husband accidentally broke the tip off of it when he, in a hurry pulled his phone off the desk, forgetting it was plugged in. I exchanged one for another one since it was within the 15 day exchange policy. But the one with the broken tip I tossed out and didn't bother exchanging it since I didn't think it was their fault that it broke.

    I bought an iPhone 5 used which came with a cable that didn't allow me to sync. Part of the process of moving from the old iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5 is to backup the old iPhone 4 then restore onto the new iPhone 5. Well, with a non-working cable (which works for charging only) I was stuck. I went to bestbuy.com and found this Insignia brand sync and charging iPhone 5 lightning cable. It works GREAT, better than the original. I use it as my master cable the "known working" one. Anything else is good for charging, but not much else. Oh yeah, I guess I could have gone with an Apple genuine cable, but I looked that up and it's $20+. For me, I'm thinking if the Insignia works the same, I don't see a reason $12 or another way of saying it "spending 75% more" for the Apple one.

    My charger that came with my iPhone broke & my husbands was on the brink, so I purchased this replacement twin pack. While my husband's worked fine, mine was broken within 48 hours. I went back to the store for a replacement. Despite the initial issue, it has worked fine since. It has been about a month without issue. It is a charger, it works or it doesn't. The only thing keeping me from giving it a five is that I had a problem with 1 of the 2 initial chargers. Not sure if it was a fluke, but replacement has been without issue. It is the first time I have ever had to purchase a replacement for a charger, but it works fine. It was disappointing and inconvenient to have to replace the initial purchase though.

    This Product is best optimized for Iphone charging

    As I used almost 3 chargers out of which two are apple branded usb chargers one came with iphone it self and the other I bought after the cut at the edge of the charger and after even the second one stopped working (electricity didn't pass to iphone as wires are cut at the edge) so I bought the one with metallic cover. Even it didn't stand as the usb and wire got detached. So, The sales person in best buy suggested to got with this product where you get 2 chargers almost or less in price than the previous ones. So, lil satisfied that there is an other one left with me if at all the existing one doesn't work. I am happy buying this because most of the usb chargers for iphone does have a problem of wire detachment or cut.

    This is a great short cord I keep with me for travel to charge or update my phone via computer or charge my magic mouse for my mac. It's not a very long cord so don't expect to go places with it, but it is the perfect size to travel without having to wrap miles of cord. I keep mine in a small makeup bag in my purse with my memory cards and flash drive, for those last minute times I may need it, I know I will have one with me. I haven't had any compatibility issues or wear like the typical cables that come with iphone.

    I've purchased non-apple branded cables before, and my experience was not very well, but the fact that it was apple certified lent it some credibility, and Insignia seems to be a brand I've not had a problem with, so I gave it a try. It works great! Color doesn't matter to me, and this one was green, but my wife likes green and it is a cable for the car, so no problems there, in the car I prefer darker cables so they don't stand out to passers by screaming "expensive electronics in here!".

    Bought this cord to connect my iPhone to my Phantom 3 drone. I cannot speak for the longevity or durability of the cable, but it transports data between my phone and my drone perfectly. If you are looking for cheap, reliable cords, this is your short term answer. My assumption is that this cord will not stand the rest of time, and if this was your daily charger cord, it probably will not last a super long time, so have a backup plan. For light duty use that doesn't require a lot of plugging in and out, then this is a good and economical choice. Pick one up for a spare or for your car, but probably not gonna last long with heavy use.

    I wish i could write something positive about this charger, and i'm really sorry to write that i can't. I have had others Non-Apple Chargers and for a lack of not paying an extortion amount of money for an Apple Charger of $ 40.00, That being said, i don't want others to get stuck with a useless item. Yes it will work a couple of times in the beginning , i bought this charger only a couple of days ago, and already i'm having a hard time charging up my I-Pad Air. I now have to force the charging on my I-Pad far too offen, Please don't buy it, Please Don't Thank You

    My family goes through charger cables every other week it seems like. I always try to have some in stock & Insignia are Apple certified which is what I typically look for if the OEM Apple stuff isn't on sale. The green ones were on clearance & I had a left over gift card that netted me 2 of them. They work fine & no complaints. Online ordering with store pick up is the way to go at your local Best Buy. Staff is great, prompt and always friendly. Will repeat purchase again.

    Color Great for Easy Find

    I was on a trip out of state and had taken my connectors for all my gadgets with me. When I was trying to find my iPhone charging cord that I used for my portable power pack, it was no where to be found. Fortunately my son was shopping near a Best Buy so off I went. It was great when I found a reasonably priced iPhone charging cord and it was in my favorite color purple. So now I figured I was going to be safe with the color and would not get it mixed up easily with other friends when we travel together. The cord works great for all my apple products! I would definitely recommend or repurchase it if necessary!

    I bought two of these cords as part of the Deal of the Day on the BestBuy website. I find the white cords get lost in the background when used on light colored counters. The brighter colors are easier to find. In a house of multiple devices, this means fewer arguments over which cord belongs to which person. Also harder to leave behind when moving from the car to home. I recommend the lighter colors, more eye-catching. I used this cord to charge and sync data on both an IPad 6th generation, and an iPhone SE.

    Good Charge-and-sync Cables for Iphone series

    I had purchased these Insignia - Apple Mfi Certified 3' Usb Type A-to-lightning Charge-and-sync Cables (2-pack) - Red/purple to be as "stand-bys" for my original cable which came with the Iphone 7 cellphone. But, have been using them regularly, one I use in my car & the other sits at my office desk. These cables have a thick sturdy cover, hence (hopefully) won't be breaking or chipping as easily as those original Iphone cables do. Also, I have observed they charge my Iphone a bit faster than the original one... maybe my imaginations. ;-) In all am very pleased with this purchase. Thanks!!

    I do not twist my cables much at all, especially near the end that plugs into the phone, the side that typically breaks down on people. I say that because while this product is fair in comparison to all other charging cables, it still seems ridiculous to me that we can do all the things humans have accomplished, but we cannot create charging cables that can bend without breaking. So, in conclusion, this cord is a great buy for the price and works great, but like all charging cables it is going to wear out and you will eventually have to buy another which is sad.

    I control and charge my iPhone with the aftermarket Pioneer radio in my car. The Lightning end of my old cable would sometimes the connection between my phone and radio over bumpy roads. With the lost connection, the radio would no longer "see" the iPhone. The radio would not recognize the iPhone if unplugged it and plugged it back in. I would have to turn my car off and back on for the radio reset & "see" iPhone because the radio does not does not truly go off with its off button. The iPhone and radio work without issue over bumps with this cable. The sale price on this cable was excellent.

    I do not have an iPhone, however all of my friends do. They come over to my place and ask if they can charge their phones so I needed a simple solution. This was it. It's a cheap lightning cord that plugs into any USB charger. It works universally and charges every time without problem. Mine was a teal color so the variety of color is nice to have as well. I usually plug my android charger in one side and their lightning charger on the other side of my dual usb charger and everyone is happy so I would highly recommend this product, which you won't break the bank on either.

    I Bought a total of three Insignia cords for my iPhone X. I purchased a USB cord for my car, my workplace and to have on my person incase I'm out shopping or running errands. These cords were not expensive, I purchased them on sale and they charge my phone lovely. It's been about 2wks since I've had all 3 cords and I didn't pay over $8 per cord and they are all still functioning great. I highly recommend this item!

    I bought this item in the past and it worked great, so I bought it again when it was on sale for $3.99. sadly I bestbuy sold me an open item that seems to be used before. Didn't notice it till I got home. for $3.99 the drive back to get a replacement is simply not worth it. It is a disappointment to received an open/used item when you pay for a new product even if it is on sale. Gave the item a 4 star cause it worked like described. Best buy store review would be a 2 star for selling a known used open item without informing the customer about it.
