    Ive had to but multiples due to the cable coming apart and the wire start to show. ( most last purchase end of 2018 about 6 months)Strangely it stop working for my iPhone X but with wire and take on it now only on my older model iPhone which is annoying. I will just have to invest in a wireless charger.

    So I had an apple lightning cable but I quickly mangled the cable that it stopped charging. The part where the actual cable connects to the connection part is quite weak on the apple product but it's much sturdier on the insignia cable. I use this cable in my car and often when making a sharp turn my phone will fly off the dash. With this cable it stays connected and I can quickly follow the cable to get my phone back. When j had the apple cable my phone would fly off and actually disconnect from the cable not allowing me to get my phone until I stopped the car and went searching under the seats.

    Great charger so far

    I have had IPod, iPad and now iPhones. The original iPod ipad chargers were great no problems, but the lighting chargers constantly stop working. This is my 6th new lightning charger in 2 years I find that ridiculous because they aren't cheap. I have tried a dollar store one and it worked for a week, so I have bought 5 Apple chargers. This is the first insignia charger I have purchased and have high hopes that it will be better than Apple's. I think it is just another way Apple is just finding to continue to make money off us consumers. If Insignia's works longer they have my future business.

    works but beware Apple's compatibility

    This is a fairly simple standard cable and works pretty much for whatever we need it to do. Except..... all of these white label Apple cords have iffy performance with data. They're great for charging. But data is sometimes an issue. We periodically get the warning "this accessory may not be supported" yada yada. So what we do is unplug, or flip the cable in the iPhone or tablet. But all in all it is a good price for a charging cable.

    A welcome extra foot

    You might not think one extra foot of length would mean much but trust me it is fantastic. This cable is the perfect length from the car charger to the window-mounted phone holder on the driver's side. Shorter cables got caught in the steering wheel column, and longer cables hung down and were a different hazard under the pedals. Electrical throughput is excellent. My only issue with it is the length of the sheath around the Lightning plug. It seems longer than necessary and can be annoying.

    Great TV!

    I bought this TV about a month ago, it was on sale and an open box special. Beautiful picture, easy to hang and set up. Great color! The bezel is only a 1/4 inch and it is only 1/4 inch thick!!! Crazy thin! The sales and the manager were all very helpful in working with me to get the best price available... This included sale price, open box discount, and opening up a Best Buy credit card! To top it all off, the Sony Technical Rep was there to vouch for the TV and to tell me everything about it. Overall, it was a perfect and pleasurable buying experience!!

    Bad cord - replaced after two uses with no refund

    An employee at Best Buy highly recommended this and I'm sorry I listened. It worked twice and then didn't work again. Whether it's faulty or not, Best Buy won't take it back because of their 14 day return policy. So I spent $12 plus another $20 for the genuine Apple cord. Wish I had just listened to my gut and purchased the best one first. I've had other Insignia products before that were fine, but now I'd second guess buying their products.

    I wanted an extra cable for work because I didn't want to bring the original cable back and forth, so I wouldn't lose it. We're not allowed to plug anything into the work computers, so I got a bluetooth speaker and cheap USB power adapter and played my music wirelessly without having to recharge. I had a cheapo $5 cable but it stopped working after the last iOS update. This cable is nice! Not too long and not too short! I sit at me desk with the Pod plugged in (for power only) and listen to music all day long! It is cheaper, longer and just as good as the Apple version!

    WORKS AS WELL AS ANY

    "As well as any" meaning, you've got to take care of them. Especially the juncture of the cable and the insert which inserts into the phone or tablet. I've tried a dozen different brands. INSIGNIA seems to make a quality product. After several months of hard use, they function as well as the day they came out of the box. BTW, any good cable must also be paired with an effective, powerful USB port to maximize its potential. Anything below 5w it's a waste of time, literally. You might charge your device, but it'll take all day.

    A Real Charge Cable

    We bought these cables after buying several other cheap brands and being unsatisfied. Some of the cables would give us an error about it not being genuine Apple and some quit charging rather quickly. While I don't consider Insignia a top quality brand, these cables feel in the middle of the price range so I thought I'd try them. They are pretty solid cables that mimic the Apple brand well. They fit in Lifeproof cases and they are molded at the end to limit insulation ripping. Overall, a good middle of the road cable, much better than the $4 ones we've been buying.

    Love the size of this laptop but.....This is my second Dell laptop since Apr 2019. The first one and this second one appear to have similar issues. For no apparent reason, the keyboard will all of a sudden start typing in all caps for the letters and the numbers start becoming symbols of various types instead of numbers. (And the cap locks has not been hit).

    Expensive and ultimately pointless

    Bought a new cord to use in my car and with an adapter for my new MacBook Pro. After I returned the adapter I returned the cable and bought a Lightning to Thunderbolt cable instead. I've heard rumors that Apple cables protect the phone more than off-brand ones (something about cycling the battery while charging it) but I kind of figure it's all a lie to get us to pay out the nose for their product... Who knows?

    Tough enough for kids

    Everyone with kids knows that they are not always gentle on cords. This is the first one I have purchased that has not had me going back to the store for a replacement because it has been damaged from use. I love the longer length especially since it will reach from the only charging spot in the front of my vehicle to my child's seat so that communication can take place. Due to a disability I have a child who uses the ipad for communication so it is critical when the battery is low on long trips that we have a cord long enough.

    It's a cable

    It's an Insignia Lightning Charge/Sync cable for iPhones/iPads/iPods. I use it in my truck in a 12v 2.1amp auxiliary plug that I also at one point in time purchased from Best Buy. These Insiginia cables do their job. I replace them about once a year. Maybe that's excessive. Maybe I'm too hard on my cords. I like the fact that they last at least a year, come in more than just the color white, and come in lengths up to 10 feet and still don't come close to Apple's cost for a Lightning Charge/Sync cable.

    Bought this as a replacement for my rocketfish and it's great! I am in and out of my car for travel so this cable gets a ton of use! I usually have to replace my cables at least every month or so, so I definitely wanted something durable. This is noticeably thicker than my previous cable as well as the OEM cable and it outperforms both as well! It's been at least a few weeks since I've had this cable and it's in great shape whereas my other cable started having connection issues at both the USB and lightening end in the same timeframe.

    Short Lifespan

    I like this cord for the first two months, then after that my phone doesn't recognize it as a charging device, it stops charging, and I have to unplug and plug it in multiple times. It's not reliable after the first two months. I've even left it in one room in my house, avoiding moving it from room to room so that it doesn't hurt the wires. I have experienced this happening with two different cords.

    Does What It Was Designed to Do

    OK so this is a lightning cable, so I'm not sure what a review will tell you. Does it plug into a USB charger and my Apple products? Yes! Does it charge whatever I plug it into? Yes! So, so far it is doing exactly what I purchased it to do. BUT, in the past these off-brand charging cords have gone bad. We shall see with this, but so far I have no complaints.

    Replacement charging cable for iPad/iPhone

    Our charging cable for one of our iPads wore out, so we tried this replacement, not from Apple but from a 3rd party, and were very pleased how sturdy it is. Is seems much more durable than the original cable, so we expect it to outlast that cable. The nice thing: this cable was $5 less expensive than a replacement from Apple. This is the 2nd cable we've replaced, using this 3rd party cable, and both are still in great shape. A good buy and we do recommend this cable when your iPad or iPod cable needs to be replaced.

    Same as the old one

    I was told I needed this new cable for a better connection for my new television. But it looks the same as the one I had before, and I see no difference in the new TV. In fact, the television is not good and I’m dealing with trying to get better quality on what is supposed to be a good line of televisions. Unless you have a very old cable, don’t spend the money on a new one until you test the old one out.

    Perfect charger

    After forgetting my charger on a road trip I stopped by a local Best buy and was amazed at how many different chargers there were for my phone. Trying to decide which one was the best a Best Buy associate recommend and suggested this one because it came with a lifetime guarantee and free replacement if it stopped working at no charge and that buying one from an IPhone Apple wouldn't. This charger just made perfect sense and works perfectly.
