    It's pricey but aesthetically and functionality A+

    I bought this when I was traveling and in a jam.Generally I buy accessories like chargers and headphones as cheap as possible, or when I know I can get a good deal, however i splurged on this chord and I couldn't be happier with the product. It chargers the phone remarkably fast, and the blue lighting looks really cool. Whenever I use this in public people always are drawn to it. I also like the texture of the chord, apple products have recently started to put a kind of plastic adhesive on the chord that gives it friction when it rubs up against other chords, that make traveling a pain, The smooth plastic never gets tangled which is a major issue I have with other chords electronic charging chords. It's a bit pricey... but if you want a chord that will handle wear and tear with a cool aesthetic perk to it... this charging/data transport chord is for you.

    A quirky cable that feels a bit slow.

    The good - This cable has a really neat lighting effect that gives it the effect of a charge flowing from the electrical outlet directly into the phone. This effect stops when the phone is fully charged, giving you an "at a glance" view as to whether or not your phone is fully charged. The bad - This light can be rather bright, especially in a dark room. This varies by user but it may actually be bright enough to interrupt your sleep cycle, so be forewarned. The ugly - I don't have the hardware to test it, but it feels like it charges a bit more slowly than official apple USB to lightning cable on the same AC Adapter.

    It Glows!

    At its core, this is a standard aftermarket, Apple certified, Lightning cable, however, there's a twist. This thing lights up! Aside from the obvious cool factor of the cable lighting up when charging the device, there's not much to be said, The exterior is made of a clear, yet thick plastic, and the light produced by the cable is surprisingly bright. My only complaint is the overall chunkiness of the USB side of the cable, while I'm sure this is because of its light up feature, it does make the cable somewhat awkward to use is come situations where space is tight, like in some cars. If you're in the market for something different when it comes to charging your favorite iOS device, this cable from Modal is well worth consideration.

    Pretty Good Charger

    It’s a charger and it works. I love the vibrant colors and it’s eye popping. But it’s too fragile. I was using it in my car and it slipped between the seats for only a few minutes as I was driving. But afterwards it was never the same. Intermittent charging and would then have to be placed at awkward angles with obviously would further damage the product. Returned it and got it brand new and working ever since. It’s a five star product. Does what you want and need it to do. Looks nice while doing it. Minus a star for the fragility.

    Lighted Apple Cable

    Now my 1st thought of this was it's a lighted cable that's certified. Well let me say it's better than that. I bought this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. It shows off like moving electrons toward the phone as it displays brightly gyrating. It only lights up once connected to phone & decreases in speed as it gets closer to full charge. Really did not expect this feature in a charging cable- Nice. I just wish they had a longer one, that I could use freely in my truck. Hopefully B.B. will pick one up in their inventory.

    Recharger built for floor outlets

    The cord is three feet long, which makes it very functional and useful when charging around the house. You can plug it into any standard outlet and use it or place it on a higher surface without worrying about yanking out the connection. Another very useful feature is the flashing light display along the cord length. This is not only visually entertaining but stops flashing to let you know when your device is fully recharged. This prevents the waste of power that happens when you continue to leave the plug in after recharging is completed.

    Unique Charger

    My son bought this for himself when he got his new iPhone and he absolutely loves it. He has pretty much lost every charger he has ever owned but this one. He said he loves that he can tell when its charger when the cord lights up because there were times when his others wasn't charging his phone and when he would take it off the charger it would be dead. I believe its also a cool factor when he plugs it in and the light starts circulating through the cord. As a mom I kind of want one too but they do not make them for the Galaxy S9+ at the moment. Maybe I should opt for an iPhone they have such a larger selection of accessories.

    We really liked this cable. I bought 2 because they were on sale less than $15.00 each. One for me and one for my teenage son 3 days in his just stopped lightening up. I returned it to Best Buy for a hassle free return. They didn’t have any more in stock so I couldn’t do a quick exchange for another one. By the time I got around to trying to order a replacement the price had doubled. Needless to say I had to give mines to my son. It’s been 3 weeks now so far so good.

    Cool Charger

    Bought this for my son and he absolutely loves it! So far it has been very durable, charges pretty fast and not to mention the cool factor when charging at night or in the dark. He brought it with him to school and all the kids thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread. Not to mentioned it helps to know that your phone is 'actually' charging when it lights up as there have been plenty of times I thought my phone was charging on a regular cord but when I removed it from the phone found out that it never charged.

    Fun Charger

    I've had this charger for about 2 weeks now. It's working pretty good! I haven't had any problems! For the sake of a fair review, I haven't moved it from its designated spot so there wasn't any rough usage in the past 2 weeks to check its durability. For descriptive purposes, the charger only lights up while charging devices and immediately when you remove the device from the charger.

    I am very happy with this product. It works well. some people might not like that the cable stays lit especially at night during charging. I paid $10 for it. In the past I bought 2 Apple chargers that were on sale at Best Buy, unfortunately I did not open them right away, but when I opened them, they worked like for a couple of weeks and died. It was too late to return. I was very surprised with Apple product.

    Very Cool Charging Cable

    It lights up and pulses when charging faster and slows as it nears full charged. Very cool and useful for nighttime driving. This is my second one and first one made it a year and a half before it stopped working. The plug in itself just wears down and stop fitting tightly in phone and won’t charge consistently like when new. Would have been 5 stars had that not happened. Great deal and a cool addition to vehicle or home charging!

    works sometimes

    the cable works sometimes, i've purchased 5 of these cables and different models of them. The first model was great but then the lights stopped working, but still charged. I thought the issue would be fixed with the second iteration, but the problems still persists. I've checked my connector and it's not my usb plug-in. It has to do with the cable. I really only purchase it because it's a neat cable to look at better than the boring apple white cable, but I would like for this product to be consistent.

    Best replacement iPhone cord

    This iPhone “lightening cable” is great for two (2) reasons; first, it is more durable than a stock iPhone cord and second, it illuminates from end to end with a very pleasing blue light that makes the cord easier to find in the dark and looks really great inside my car at night when I drive. As a professional driver many of my passengers ask me about it and I always say I got it at Best Buy. I’ve bought many over the years and will continue buying them in the future.

    This charging cord is lighted and the lights are synchronized so that it looks like the electricity is flowing into the device. It is actually quite pretty; sort of like Christmas lights. I did encounter one problem with this device though: After buying two of them (one for each of my two daughters), I found that only one of the cords actually lit up. While the cord that didn't light up did charge the ipad, one of my daughters was still disappointed. So, I had to go back to the store and switch it out. The new cord lights up just fine.

    It lights up when charging!

    This is an unusual cord-it lights up when charging. Quite a show when it is dark in the room, freaks out people when using a portable charger outside! LOL The light up feature shows it is charging your device, as your device is almost fully charged the speed of the light slows down. When your device is fully charged the light in the cord turns off. Great way to know it is time to unplug your phone (if being charged in the dark). You cannot see the light up when used in lit conditions. Charges quickly, love this cord.

    The cables lights up with a pattern to simulate the power that is going to the phone when charging. After the phone is fully charged the light pattern slows down to indicate trickle charging. This is helpful to see if your phone is fully charged from a distance without checking your phone. The charging connection has extra insulation to reduce wearing and exposing the wires.

    Was surprised to see the entire cord lights up when its charging, So far so good.........but we've only been using it 2 weeks. Hoping it doesn't stop working in a few months like all the previous ones we;ve had to replace. It seems to charge our phones quicker than most. Would buy again.

    Great Charging Cord

    As with most cables used to charge your phone, this one does the job. The neat part about this one is that has led lights that move at variable speeds when charging your device. The movement or intensity of the lights is an indicator of the amount of current flowing to your device. A Slower movement of the lights indicates that your device is likely more fully charged. Faster moving lights indicate that your device is still taking on a charge. I just enjoy the light show it puts off.

    Awesome lightning cord for the money

    The lightning charger cord is long enough to be plugged in just about anywhere and be able to use it at the same time. Plus, it glows blue and the light speed depends on the percentage charged. For example, at 2% battery life the lights are super fast; but, at 98% they still move but really slow. Also, it costs less than $20! It has your phone, tablet or other compatible device charged and ready in no time; or, charged and downloaded in notice at all.
