    Will it Survive?

    This brand is the exact same one as the green color that I reviewed previously, yet this one has somehow survived longer and was priced a few dollars higher. So far, this version has not had problems being used for a vehicle's entertainment center, though there are occasional periods where connectivity or connection is not occurring. Again, you get what you pay for with the price and I wish I could say this motto did not apply to this product.

    I did not get an opportunity to use this to charge my Beats headset. When I plugged it in it did not work. When I un plugged it it pulled a piece of the cigarette lighter plug with it. It was a random adapter I found in one of our vehicles so it may have been the fault of the adapter. I have been unsuccessful in removing the broken plastic, so I suppose it will hit the trashcan.

    One broke the first time I used it

    I bought these and was so excited because of the color and the price! The first one I took out the box broke within 15 minutes of use, the piece that goes inside the phone just broke off somehow! However, I was glad there was a second cord, I have been using this second cord for about a month now and it works well, no issues and it's still in once piece!!! If the first one wouldn't have broken on me, I would have given this product a 5 star; hopefully mine was just a fluke and not a common occurrence for this product!!

    Apple will tell you that non-apple chargers won't work as well as others for their products, so I'm wary of using others. So far this has not given any issues. Just be careful to not over-charge using it (keep it charging after it has hit 100%). I was warned that this can cause problems in iPhones if using non-apple chords. I'd always use an apple charger over this given the choice, but this can work fine if necessary.

    I have had a lot of problems with phone cable that are not apple aproved. I just recently bought the IPhone 7 plus and I realized that not all lightning cables are not compatible with my phone and it pops up a little box saying this accessory is not compatible with this device. Although that is a set back for me I ended up giving the cable to my fiancé and it works perfectly with his iPhone 6! I would recommmend this to anyone with an iPhone older than a 6s!

    Plugging and unplugging the cable from my phone each time I get in the car eventually breaks the cable right near the lightning connector. So I end up needing a new cable. I don't believe a more expensive cable would last any longer. This cable is good quality for the price. I expect to need a new one at some point (I'm on my 4th or 5th already), but it will certainly do until then.

    My son has bought this cord and had to return it for another one, teenagers these days dont realize that you cant roll it up around the phone, bend it to use the phone while charging etc, but it did work for roughly 6 months, it has a 1 year warranty, had to argue with customer service to get them to honor it, afterall it is Best Buy product. Not as good a quality as the OEM apple cord but overall good for the price.

    It was cheap and I needed a plug fast. I grabbed it off the shelf and realized once I got in the car that it must not be MFI certified because it didn't work with the car's usb audio system like apple cables work. It works for charging the phone, but doesn't seem to work for pulling data off the phone. I should of spent the extra money and got an apple one.

    The charger worked perfectly however with recent Apple updates this charger will cause the phone to repeatedly show “this accessory is not supported by the device” and also while it will charge the device occasionally it will not allow audio playback in my car for my iPhone 6 (which was never an issue until recent Apple updates)

    Just a basic lightning cable. It is not as fast as the Apple original cables, but still works. I bought 2 originally but both quit working after 6 months. Hopefully I get 6 months out of these 2. Perfect for a family that needs 8 cables to charge. Especially when the kids keep swiping mine.

    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.

    I purchased this for my daughter because her favorite color is blue. She ended up switching with me for my white cord because it seems more durable. It's still working fine, but I have a feeling it's not going to last very long. I hope I'm wrong We will only had for about a month and no problems yet The color is pretty though

    I own a 5 USB charging station and bought two of these for $6 each to complete the station. Bought a few of these cords and they are all working great still. All of our Apple cords have broke in which these have been our cheap replacements.

    PROS: -affordable -comes in many different colors -can be used to sync on computer! CONS: -not easy to find (i found this item by appliances in my local best buy) -did not last long (stopped charging after 2 months of use) SUGGESTIONS: i would only purchase again to use for car charging or travel.

    Bought this on a whim since I had forgot my cable while traveling. While it did charge my iPhone perfectly while laid flat on the table, the connection did not hold well while plugged in vertically. (I.e. car mount). Bought it on sale for cheaper than a cup of coffee so it was worth it.

    This little 3 foot cable does it's job. It charges my phone. It's a shade of green. I wish it was longer. I sometimes want to be able to have my phone charge and still be able to stand up and read my phone. No big deal. It's a cheap cable.

    The only thing about all iPhone chargers, not just these charges they need to build them tougher, kid tough, for the amount of pulls that they get a day from kids yanking them out of the phones.

    Decent cord for the cost

    Needed an extra cord. This is a good one. A Best Buy employee once told me that the Lightning cords aren't the best. And it's better to grab a cheap one. Even for the price I think the insigni ones work better than most. Only knocked a few stars cause the shortness of the cord make it tough to handle.

    Bought a bunch on a deal with two that had the tips bend off. Thankfully there is a lifetime warranty on the Insignia cables and they replaced them once the Geek Squad team member understood that there is a “no-hassle” replacement warranty on their house-branded cables.

    Typical MFi cable

    This cable will work with the following Apple iPhones (I have tested them all): iPhone 5, 5S, 6 Plus, 7 Plus. I am giving it only 3 stars because it's a typical MFI cable. Nothing special; similar to the cable that comes with your iPhone.
