    10 ft charging cable that actually works

    I needed a 10 ft USB lightning charger cable. Previous attempts at using long cables to charge an iphone have resulted in low charging rates of 0.5 to 0.2 amps or the iphone saying the charger is not approved and stopping charging completely. I have found that my iphone 5 and my wife's iphone 7 will charge at a maximum of 0.96 amps whether attached to a 1 amp or 2 or more amp charger. Also when they reach 100% the charging rate drops to zero. Long cables usually decrease the charging rate but this 10 ft cord only drops it to 0.93 amps. Also this cable will fit a LifeProof case which is very hard to find outside of an Apple brand charger cable. * Modal™ - Apple MFi Certified 10' Lightning USB Charging Cable *

    I found that if you don't spend the extra money for an Apple charging cord they just stop working routinely. The Apple cords never stop working, in my experience anyway. It is kind of crazy how much they charge for a simple charging cord. That must come down, its still over the top, but even so its much better than getting yet another less expensive, no name, charging cord that simply stops working for no apparent reason within a few months, leaving you powerless & without a cell when you least expect it & when you need it the most. As I said before, I guess you either pay now, or you pay latter? Im thinking in this case, when on the road, It's better to be safe, than sorry.

    Terrible connection

    I bought the cable hoping to get one that was longer lasting than the generic Apple lightning cables since mine was basically dead. I have no idea how long these actually last and I'm not going to find out because I am fed up with the noise! The plug in it must be loose or something because it just keeps disconnecting and reconnecting every time I plug it in. You have to get the cable in just right or else it will beep for what feels like ages. And even then it will most likely come lose after a little while. I don't care if the Apple ones are less durable, at least they don't make my phone beep incessantly at, like, 3 a.m. I will not be buying anything from Modal again after using this and seeing everyone else's horrible experiences with them.

    In the past all my cables were made of plastic and did not last very long. The joint where the cable attached to the USB plug was the point of failure. In a matter of a few months of use, the plastic started to crack and then the connection itself would fail. I do not bend or roll up the cable after use to damage that joint. This new replacement cable is very durable and flexible so the joint does not crack. The fabric covering is superior to ant of the plastic versions. Highly recommend this product. The only improvement I would suggest is to offer a 1 ft length. Don't need all that extra cable length when going from a wall plug to countertop.

    When I first purchased this cable, I was super impressed with its quality. The connections seemed solid, the braiding around the cable seemed solid and appeared to make the cable worth the extra expense. Now that I'm close to a year, the rubber boot around the cable is cracked in half. The lightning connector appears to be on the verge of separating from the cable itself. At least with my Apple cables, I could yet a couple years out of them before self-destructing. I would recommend buying a cable for half the price and plan on replacing at the end of year; you'll be money ahead.

    Simple but great lighting cable

    In today's day an age cables are ubiquitous. You would be hard press to find anyone without six or seven of them. What stands out about this cable is that it simply works. I have had other lighting cables that are off just enough that they would continuously loose connection from the iPad pro that I use it with in my car. I even had one with a light on it. Interesting concept but utterly worthless. Modal's braided cable works does not break the bank like Apple's cables and last infinitely longer. (hint you'r crazy if you spend money on Apple Cables... and I'm fully in the Apple ecosystem.) You will not go wrong with this cable.

    You need a lightening cable for 2 things: 1) charge phone, and 2) data transfer. This cable does 1 but not 2 (or at least not for me, since sales guy said he uses it and had no issues with data transfer). I’m sure there is a disclaimer on package with regards to its functionality with iPhones. It’s a risk...and then you have to take the thing back and get a new one and hope it works. Probably best to get the apple lightening cable and avoid the issue. Positive note: the weaving is great, durable and looks to keep cable from crimping and protects wiring. I have not tried to use this in my vehicle to see if it plays music through speakers—I do not use Bluetooth.

    As most people know, these cords can be cheaply made and last only a couple of weeks, or be very expensive but still last only several months. I have a 6 foot cord, which is great for home charging, and so far has not frayed or have issues with the charger top. However, i can foresee it will probably happen over several months. It’s pricy: it was the same price as an Apple product, but even the Apple products wear out quickly. I’d recommend it as I have not found a superior cord on the market yet.

    So i bought three of these lighting cables about a month ago or so, one for my car, living room, and my bed room. The three main locations you would be at the charge your phone. Every single one of these charging cables now have to be held in a certain position or they will not charge you phone at ALL! Sucks cause i didn't even pay the on sale price for them. But even if they are on sale i still wouldn't want to waste my money on these. They said braided cords are the way to go right now. Yeah totally not buying it.

    We bought three 4’ and two 10’. We have them set up throughout the house (two at the bedside, one in the kitchen, one in each USB charging lamp station) and we have no complaints about any of them. They are all working great and the lengths are perfect for what we needed. There’s no reason to buy the Apple name when these work just fine. We usually buy Belkin products but BB was sold out that day and I bought these on a whim. I would gladly purchase them again!

    My wife bought one of those long cords that comes with lifetime warranty for everyone in the family. All of them broke within 2-3 weeks and the warranty was not a good deal. Bought this as a replacement. I have had one in the past that lasted several years before finally breaking. I put that one through all kinds of tough situations. Made the right choice this time to go get another one instead of a cheaper knockoff. I like that they have added the small velcro strip to keep it neatly bundled when traveling.

    Seems durable, so far

    Bought this for my son who is brutally hard on phone charging cables. Off-brand cables that try to duplicate Apple cables rarely work at all, and Apple cables tend to fray just before the end the plugs into the phone if you are not extremely gentle with them. This cable is braded and I'm hoping it will last longer. Gave it 4 stars because we've only had it for about 2 weeks, so it will be a while before I know how well it stands up to the abuse. If it lasts, I'll be getting many more for the rest of the family.

    Extremely Durable Cable!

    I use this every night to charge my phone, and it lays right beside me in bed so that I can reach it in the morning. Other cables were either not long enough, or started to break after longtime use. This cable is very thick and durable, making it long-lasting, and it's much longer than the average cable, giving you more room to work with. I can flip to the other side of the bed and still use my phone while its charging! If you're looking for a good charging cable that will last, I'd highly recommend this one!

    Modal - 4' Lightning USB Charging Cable - White - This is a highly flexible cord purchased for an iPhone 6. Standard cords do not last long in the different environments I expose them to. I needed something more flexible. This has worked very well so far. I waited over a month to post about it to give it a good work out. I have not gotten the frays that typically develop at the intersect of the connector and the cord which usually destroys other cords I've tried. I would get it again. It came with a 1 year limited warranty

    As far as charging cords go for my phone, this one is the best I've found. I like the braided exterior & that it holds up so much better than the others. It just seems to last longer no matter how much you bend it around. I also like they come in colors so I can color code them to people or rooms. Yes, rooms. I have a 3 story townhome so having them in different rooms on the floors makes a difference! As long as they make these cords, they will be my go to!

    I bought this to connect my Phantom 4 Professional remote to my iPad. It was the shortest one that they had in stock, and I was in a bit of a pinch. I have a technique of rolling up long cords and kind of winding them around themselves, but the outer jacket has quite a bit of friction and doesn't want to lay flat. Probably not an issue for 99% of users, but it's a slight annoyance for me. The quality is very good and I don't foresee any problems with it.

    Much better charger for Apple products

    After my third Apple charging cable snapped and stopped working even with careful, gentle use, I'd had it with their increasingly expensive and yet cheaply made products. I went into Best Buy and found this charging cable and I love it. It's MUCH sturdier than the Apple charging cable and charges my phones faster. I would definitely recommend this charging cable to people who are sick of Apple's lousy, designed-to-fail products.
