    Bought for my Ipad 3

    I bought this cable for my Ipad 3 and it works well. I didn't have a ton of other options when I went to the store to buy it. I don't use it as much as I used the original cable, mostly because I'm afraid to break it. It's not that it seems poorly made, but when I started using the original cable and taking it to other places all the time, it broke (the end that connects to the Ipad separated from the cable). It does feel cheaper than the original though.

    A Charging Cable That Works

    The original charging cable that came with my older iPad 3 finally frayed beyond serviceability. I purchased this one as a replacement for that. It fits and works perfectly for this purpose and as a benefit, it is about 8 inches (approx) longer than the original cable. The extra length is welcome as the original always seemed to be right at it's limit for safely reaching an electrical outlet.

    Good alternative and priced just right

    Was looking to simply replace lost charging cable. Obviously if you can find an actual Apple model the price will be more than one may consider fair, especially for such an older model. This one was priced very reasonably and since it charges and does what it is supposed to do I cannot say anything bad about it. Designed well, seems put together well. Nope no complaints.

    I drove a Kia soul 2012 and it was able to play music in my car from an iPod or iPhone. I bought this because who carries around old chargers and they happen to find their old iPod in a drawer without said charger? Well this allowed me to download music from my MacBook onto my iPod and jam like it was the mid 2000s.

    Great cord thus far

    After many, many cords purchased from places in person and online, this one has been the most durable so far. Bought for my teen daughter who takes it every place she goes and is always having one break per month. So far this one has not bent nor shown the first sign of breakage. It also charges well especially for the price. Great buy in my personal opinion.

    Very Well Made; Wish They Were Longer

    I was delighted to finally find longer-than-Apple sized 30-pin charging cables. I've purchased two (one for the office and another for my backpack) so that I can charge my old-ish iPad III at work and in the hotel room. While I wish they were two feet longer, they nevertheless consistently get the job done correctly. An extra couple of feet would have landed the fifth star.

    Wrong cable for Samsung

    I picked up this cable by mistake for a Samsung tablet. Of course it did not fit the tablet. This cable is for older Ipods which I do have. I returned it and exchanged it for the right one. Although I returned it, it is good to know that there is something out there if I needed to replace my Ipod cable

    Ok for what it is supposed to be

    I guess I should rate this higher--I bought it for interfacing with my old-school connector iPod (yes, I still have one of those) in my car and the fidelity is not great. It does connect, but volume has to be on so much higher than every other media interface. Still, don't think it's the cable as much as the car.

    Why need to buy apple-branded product where there are a lots of alternative products that work the same level or performance. Apple-branded products are expensive and you make this company more richer. spread the wealth and give other company to flourish. competition makes benefit to all of us, not only to one side.

    Good Cable for Price

    Cable has good length and charges at an acceptable rate for the asking price. Lowered to four stars because it did take a bit of work to first get it inserted into the iPod while also not trying to force or jam it into the charging port.

    Apple makes their plugs unique so you have to buy the specific ones. Frustrating as devices change so do their plugs. I have begun to always make sure I have a back up these plugs seem to wear quite easily at the plug in connection. When not worn connection is good and works as it should.

    Good sub for something Apple no longer makes

    This is a very basic need, but since Apple no longer supplies this cord, and I have not one but two Classic iPods to deal with, this is a very welcome product. The length could be a little bit shorter to be really handy, but better longer than too short. It even seems sturdier than the OEM cable.

    It’s a cable, it works as advertised

    Not much to say about this. It’s an old style Apple charging cable for outdated Apple devices. Not many options still available when you need an old style cable. The last one I had lasted me for 2+ years, but depending on your use your mileage might vary.

    This is one of the last brands of 16 pin chargers that I've been able to find. They work very well although the fitting can sound rough or feel rough the first time you plug it in to your device. They are durable to a point as long as you don't abuse your cables.

    Does the job, got it on the spur of the moment, so I did not check for comparable prices elsewhere, only used it once so far, but hoping that since it is Apple MFI certified that it will last longer than the much cheaper one I bought before this one

    The cord is fine, but really have not used it very much. The reviews are always requested soon after purchase. I would rather know what a person thought about this cord after 6 months, not immediately after buying. Cords are notorious for not working after a few months use....

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Good aftermarket I pod charger

    I Was a little skeptical about going with an aftermarket 30 pin I pod charger at first, because the majority of them take so long to charge the device. After taking a chance I was proven wrong by the Insignia Apple Mfi Certified 4, and would highly recommend this product.

    Grandmom and I were relieved to find this item in-store. We thought we would have to order it online because it was for a older generation iPad. Thanks to Best Buy my grandson only went one day without charging. Only four stars because it is not Apple original.

    32 pin charging cord that works for older iPhones

    32 pin iPhone charging cords are hard to find as the phones that use them are becoming obsolete. But we needed one and this cord has worked well so far. I gave it 4-Stars for now as I want to see how it holds up with use.
