    Perfect Length for Vehicular Applications

    In the case of Lightning cables, the theory of "you get what you pay for" holds true. Prior low cost cables that were purchased for vehicular use didn't hold up. Looking through the store, I had the following criteria in place for selecting an appropriate cable: 1.) Short length: The shelf in the car where the phone will temporarily be held is directly below the USB port. Using too long of a cable would result in slack that was not required. 2.) Sturdy build: The knock-off white cables tend to fail too early. Either braided/reinforced cabling or more robust connections between the ports and the cable were a must-have. This Insignia cable was the perfect length for what I needed. Upon plugging the cable into the USB port and my phone, the Apple CarPlay functionality of my stock headunit worked consistently and as expected. It has held up well since the time of purchase. Reasonably priced for a well built cable.

    I purchased thus short Lightning cable for use with my Insignia Power bank. I am able to fit the Power Bank, its charging Cable, this short Lightning Cable and a short Velcro strip all in a small zippered case to keep all necessary items together so that when I need to charge the phone I can secure the phone connected to the PowerBank with the short lightning cable using the Velcro strip and not worry about the phone becoming disconnected from the Powerbank while in my backpack as it charges, and without using an excessively and unnecessarily long Lightning Cable.

    This is exactly what I needed

    When I buy cables for my iPhone, they have a certain purpose. Some for docks, some for certain plugs because of length. etc.. I originally bought this to use with my PNY 2200 battery pack (since that only comes with micro USB). It works great. It is a short length so that I can put my phone and the battery pack in my pocket for charging. The flat design ensures it does not get all twisted or tangled. It is great for charging my iPhone 6 and also my iPad Mini 3. I don't understand why people on here are leaving reviews that it's too short. The description say 6" and that's what you should expect. Don't buy it if you need a longer one.

    Don't be fooled by cheaper options when it comes to Lightning Cables. You will find none better than Apple's own cables. The more inexpensive ones have tons of problems, just check the reviews on any retailer's site. One thing I would suggest, is adding the spring from a click-pen/ball point style pen to the Lightning plug side of the cable, where the cord and connector meet. This is every Lightning Cable's weak spot, and this spring will help. Do an internet search or Youtube to see more information if you need it, you will be glad you did.

    This is the third one of these little cables I have purchased. First I had purchased some alarm clocks for my guest rooms that had a USB port on the side for charging the guests phone so I bought these so even if they forgot their cable there would be one there but so small it was not in the way otherwise. This last one I got for my car. There was one in the car but it was 6 ft long and a hassle to get out and put away. This little guy I can keep in my cup holder so it is readily available without being in the way

    I have gone through dozens of iphone chargers over the years I have tried different types and different brands and it was always the same thing. They would work for a month or less then would stop working. I was skeptical about trying this when I saw it in the store, but I decided to give it a try and honestly thank god I did. The cable is very short I was even warned about it at checkout , BUT it works great and it's helped me get rid of my habit of using my phone while it's charging. Currently I have had it for 6 months and it's still works. Awesome product!!!! FINALLY!!!

    Well i always have my doubts on generic cables that are or are not MFI certified as i have been burned by many other makes/models in the past. So i thought i would give best buy shorty cables a try since i needed a travel set of cables for my multi USB charger while vacationing. These have been put through the paces with both iphone6 iphone7 iPad mini4 as well and performed very well with no issues. I have also tested them with external batteries from several manufacturers. If you need a good travel cable, get you some of these.

    Great, short cable for use with a small pocket USB battery. Takes no space in pocket and it's made of a flat cable so it doesn't knot up or tangle. Just the right length for charging an iphone (even in-pocket!) without getting in the way. I used this on a business trip in which I carried (in my pockets!) only an iphone for presentations and communication, a Firewire-to-VGA adapter, a tiny USB battery, and this Firewire charging cord. It enabled me to keep the iPhone 5 charged on long days between long meetings in which it was constantly in presentation mode.

    Served it’s purpose 100% I ultimately purchased a coiled 10 foot lightning-charge-and-sync-cable which replaced this purchase thus no need for this 6 inch cable. (I subsequently realized after purchase that I wanted a “2–in-1” cable to 1. connect to battery-backup-for iphone & 2. use stand-alone charge to wall socket, 3. ease of carry/transportation, 4. relatively short also - bonus.)

    My new Acura RDX has several usb ports and needed shorter cords to keep things tidy. Had hoped they would have other colors than white to ensure my color coordination, but did not see them. Interesting that the 4' cord was cheaper than the short cord I bought. I bought 2.

    Nice little cable for the car. No tangling crazy cord to deal with. It might be better at 8 inches for the USB ports in the center compartment like my car but it still is long enough to lay my phone on the surface outside the compartment. So if you are tired of dealing with a long cord in your car and just want to charge your phone this is great especially if your car uses hands free operation. Obviously, you can't talk on the phone with it to your ear with this cord.

    I needed a short cord for use in my car. I asked about the location of one foot cords and when I explained where I was going to be using this cord, I was shown the Insignia 6” Lightning Cable. I asked if I could make sure it fit and worked with my phone, while in its current case and i was led to a workstation where I could do this. I appreciated the service I was shown and being able to try out the cord. Thanks Best Buy!

    I don't like lightning connection.

    I use this cord to charge my phone while it stays only under my pillow. Been using it now for about two weeks and it seems to be shorting out already, sometime if you plug it in it will "Bing repeatedly" as if it were being connected/disconnected. However to remedy this, just rotate the connection and it stops. I've had this same issue with multiple Apple brand cords, hence me finally buying off brand cords but I just think now it's lightning connection. But it for $10...

    I recently bought the Insignia™ - Apple MFi Certified 6" Lightning Charge-and-Sync Cable as part of a bundle with my iPhone 7 Plus. Initially, I purchased this item just so my total purchase price would meet the minimum to qualify for a discount. But I have since found this little 6 inch cord very useful for charging and syncing my iPhone without a lot of wire cluttering up the counter top. It's a great little product and I'm glad I purchased it.

    This was a great investment on my part. I initially thought it would be longer (not paying attention to length lol) but it all worked out in the end. I leave it in my backpack so that I can inconspicuously charge my phone on my computer during class without the long 3ft charger. Not a great car charger but its a nice fit for the classroom and or office, as long at the outlet is near a table or desk, otherwise your phone will dangle from the wall.

    I purchased the 4ft version of this cable and was so happy with it, I opted for the 6ft cable in addition to the original 4ft version. I was a little worried this might not work as advertised because most long cables suffer from increased electrical resistance which causes slow charging times, and occasional signal disconnects when syncing. This cable did not have any issues whatsoever. Works perfect, and looks better than the Apple cable. Highly recommended.

    I love this short 6 inch cable to use with my Mophie phone charger. It's the perfect size to take on the go and you don't have to worry about the 3 foot cable getting tangled up. I usually plug it into my iPhone and put my iPhone on top of the charger. Will fit in pocket or can just carry it around without bulk and without 3 foot cord getting tangled up or being to long.

    Sometimes the cord allows functionality as the original cable. However, 70% of the time, it only allows standard play. Not forwarding to other songs and other car capable options that work with the original cable. I threw the box and receipt away, so I can't get it replaced. I wish Best Buy or Insignia would contact me and replace it 1 for 1. I'm not asking for anything more than a working cable. Bulldog

    I needed a short cable to attach my IPhone to my car audio system. I have the Pioneer NEX 4200 in my Taurus X and the Pioneer NEX 2330 in my Mustang. Both systems feature Apple CarPlay, enabling me to use voice commands to operate the audio, make and answer phone calls, listen to text and voice mail and use Apple Maps for navigation on the 8” screen. The cable plugs easily into bot the phone and the usb jumper.

    Shorter than expected

    I like the short power cable I get at the Apple Store. I didn't think about it when I got this doing the conversion meters to inches. So I bought this for my car because I dislike having a long cord in the vehicle. This cable is almost too short. It's shorter than the one I get from Apple Store but I am able to use it. I keep it as a spare for when friends are riding with me. Not recommending only cause it's just about 3 inches shorter than I like.
