    Cheaper price, better cord.

    I usually use Apple only cords when I use my Apple stuff but frankly the cords are expensive and seem to have to many issues. So this time I bought the Insignia version. Not really had any issues with Insignia stuff before. Well its been a few weeks since I got the cord and its working great. And it seems to be better made to. The plastic around the cord seems thicker, the cord feels stronger. And obviously its much cheaper to buy. If you need a replacement cord skip Apples and buy this one instead!

    I bought these for my office, where people use up old iPhone cables and then lose them. As a result there's always a shortage of these cables (since the new iPhones come with the lighting cable) so I needed a bunch of these cables. I've used these with older iPads and iPhones. Data sync and power worked just fine. I can't really tell if power transfer was a bit slow since I tend to hook the device up overnight and it generally charges fully by then, but I gave a few cables out to people and everybody seems to be perfectly happy with these. The cables are fairly long as well, so you can place the device further away from the power strip to reduce congestion a bit.

    Just What I Needed!

    Have an older model iPhone that my little nephew plays games on when he visits. The charging cable was totally shot, and since apple no longer makes them for iPhone 4s, I was fearful of purchasing a third party product that could be potentially dangerous. This Insignia Charge & Sync cable works wonderfully, and it is certified. I phoned apple and they said it was a good choice, as it is compatible with the phone, and to their knowledge, no known issues to date caused by using with older model iPhones. Very happy with this item!

    Great replacement charging cable for iPad2!

    So far this cable works great for me. The extra length is definitely convenient. I like that the cable is stiffer than the Apple cable that came with the iPad 2. It feels sturdier and the connection point of the cable to the 30 pin is stronger. That is the point where the Apple cable failed, granted it did take a couple years. I expect that the Insignia cable will last even longer; glad I went with this brand versus another half the price that looked flimsy. I'd love to find this in an even longer length too. A well spent $15!

    A charging cord that does the job

    A charging cable is a simple thing. Insignias cable for Apple products is somewhat sturdier than Apple's. The joints where the cable mates with the plugs, and the cable itself are stronger and thicker than Apple's. We have found over the years that these joints are a weak spot in Apple branded cables. What might be a drawback to some is the that the thicker cable is stiffer and resists being balled up to put in a pocket. This is no problem for us as we have a family recharging station in the kitchen that the cable never leaves.

    I set my curling iron on my charger cord so had to buy a new cord. I was afraid that since my iPhone is so old, 4s, I wouldn't find another charger that would charge as quickly or as well as the original one. My daughter had to buy a new charger for an android and it takes forever to charge her phone. However, this Insignia cord works just as well as the original cord from Apple. Happy with this product.

    I was in Walmart shopping and thought I would ask if they had this plug. I was told the equipment was to old and even Best Buy did not carry it. Well I went to Best Buy to ask and it was right there on the shelf for purchase. I should of considered the source and realize they don' t know what they are talking about. My fault for not going to a store where they employ knowledgeable associates. Thank you for Having my plug.

    The protective covering on my original cable that came with my iPhone 4 finally started to shred at the end that connects to the phone. I purchased the Insignia as a replacement and have not had any issues whatsoever. My original apple cable was shorter than this one so I absolutely appreciate the 4' length on the Insignia. The protective covering also appears a tad thicker than my original cable. No cons to speak of.

    I needed a charger for my iphone 4 and I really didn't want to go to the Apple store. I went to the Best Buy a mile and a half from my house and was surprised the charger was only $15. I figured it would cost more. I purchased a charger from a mom and pop cell phone store for $15 a few months before and the charger broke in no time. This charger appears to be much sturdier and of better quality compared to the other replacement charger that I bought.

    30-pin iPod/USB cable

    I was traveling in Houston, TX and realized I had forgotten my 30-pin iPod cable. Luckily, a local Best Buy had one. I didn't need anything fancy- just the ability to synch podcasts and connect to my rental car. With most people switching to Lightning for their newer Apple devices, I felt lucky that Best Buy still had legacy cables. A few other stores I checked did not have them.

    I purchased this for my mother-in-law. She has a habit of fraying charging cables. She has purchased 3rd party cables that work for a while then won’t charge her iPad. Purchased her a MFi certified cable we would no longer have to hear about it not charging. The savings of her purchasing others after they stop functioning in about a week, that alone is worth it.

    Excellent Buy Longer Cord

    My old original IPAD charger had bit the dust. This is an excellent quality charger and I love that it is a little longer than the original Apple one. Was glad to find this at Best Buy since the "30 pin" connections are being phased out. It was a lot more convenient to just go to the Best Buy store and buy it rather than ordering online and waiting for the more expensive and shorter Apple one. Very satisfied.

    So Far So Good

    I like the fact this cable is thicker than the Apple branded product. Time will tell if it twists, frays and comes apart like the Apple products. No matter what, I will use the ballpoint pen spring hack to keep it from doing so quickly, if it has that propensity. I bought a no name brand item that would not charge my phone and took forever to try and charge my iPad! This works in lightning speed!

    I don't understand cables. Most of the generic cables I've purchased for my Apple products don't last 2 weeks. Then again I have plenty of Apple cables that either don't last more than a year or aren't hardy enough for the mobile device experience. So far so good with this one and I'm really only hoping that it lasts as long as the Apple cables.

    I needed a replacement charging cable for my iPad, but did not want to pay a lot for it. I found this product and looked up the reviews. Very good ratings and just as good as the original cable that came with my iPad. I've been using it for about two months now with no issues at all.

    This is a replacement for the 30 pin USB cord for my wife's iPad. The original one was getting frayed, and sometimes would not charge the beast. Had to get a new one. This one cost me about twice what I would have expected - and I see you can get cheaper ones - but I did not want the little lady to be disappointed. So . . . worth it, I guess.

    Much better than the Apple cord

    I was tired of the Apple cord coating splitting after about a year, so decided to give the Insignia a try. I was pleasantly surprised that the cord is 4 foot long compared to the Apple cord's 3 foot cord. The 4 foot cord gives me enough length to plug it into an outlet and have enough length to play my iPad. Of course I'll have to wait a year to see if this cord splits.

    The Ipad 2 is no longer supported by Apple so accessories are becoming hard to fine. Mine is still functional and I keep it around for the grandkids. I ordered a couple of cheap knockoffs on line (silly me, what was I thinking). Then I saw this at Best Buy. It's almost identical to the original Apple cable.

    I was looking for a sturdy yet cost effective replacement for my original cable. It seems like everything has a sub connection so these cables get quite a bit of use. The cord feels durable, not cheap. I am happy with the Best Buy brand. I will have to wait to see how it holds up. I bought a second one for another family member who is also impressed so far.

    After my Apple supplied cords broke I was in need of a new one as I have an old school iPod. So I said to myself...self how about we go try to find one at the local Best Buy. So off I went & to my amazement they had one. I was so stoked! So I hurried to the cashier to purchase the cord & rushed home to charge up my iPod. It worked great! It was awesome...TOTALLY AWESOME!
