Had to return the product.
Laura Marten
I hardly used this cable and noticed that after only a month, the plastic housing at the lightening connection broke apart and exposed the internal wires!
Mark M.
The cable is well made and feels like it will last a very long time.

Kudos to Amazon for being first-to-market with a cheaper alternative to the Apple branded cord. There's no reason you should not buy this cord. In fact, I personally prefer the black cord to Apple's white. Also, it works with Apple's wall plug.

The ONLY thing I could possibly think of that would be a deterrent is that the lightning plug end is slightly fatter (on the black part) than the original Apple cord's version. So if you are squeezing your Apple cord between somthing to get to the phone, then this might not make it through. That being said, I have an OtterBox Defender case on my iPhone 5 and it fits without any problems.

This cable is Apple approved and uses a Lightning connector that is 100% identical to the original cable's plug. It is made of one solid continuous metal shielding and looks and feels exactly like the original one. However, the black encasing is bulkier, being wider, thicker and also longer than its Apple counterpart. The cable is the exact same length as the Apple cable and works perfectly with my iPhone 5. For $5 less I'll pick this cable up any day.

The quality of the cable is very good and will work as advertised. The problem really stems from the 'Lightning' side of the cable; simply the cable is too large for many iPhone 5 cases. The plug is a fine fit, but the black casing for the plug will hit into most cases, requiring you to take the case off in order to charge the phone. I am rather disappointed with this oversight, not sure if I will return it.

The AmazonBasics Lightening cable won't plug in to the phone with the AmazonBasics case on! The plastic on the connector is too wide. You would think that the folks engineering this stuff would take their own case into consideration when creating a new product. Disappointing.

AmazonBasics generally are good value but their lightning cables break far too easily in a short amount of time. I've purchased a few of these cables and over the course of 1-2 months, the cables will all start to break down and fray right where the cable and usb meet (the "neck" of the cable). I've posted some photos of the design flaw in these cables in the item description above as it's easier to see than describe and it appears that some other reviewers are also experiencing a similar issue.

It seems that exterior heat also seems to heavily impact the lifespan of the cables as I've noticed the cables that only last about a month are the ones that I leave in my car to charge my iPhone on the go. Out of the 3-4 AmazonBasics lightning cables I've purchased, only one is still in mint condition....and it's the one that stays indoors at home in a temperature-controlled room and is used only to charge my phone overnight. It's also the one cable that isn't stuffed into a pocket or carried around in my backpack.

Pros: Cheaper upfront cost than some other cable brands
Cons: Unless you leave this cable in a temperature-controlled environment and only use this cable once or twice a day, you'll find you'll be replacing these cables on a semi-monthly basis. The cost will eventually add up.

I've since moved on to the Anker brand [Apple MFI Certified] Anker® Lightning to USB Cable 3ft / 0.9m for iPhone 5s / 5c / 5, iPad Air / mini / mini2, iPad 4th generation, iPod 5th generation, and iPod nano 7th generation and have found that this alternate brand offers better long-term reliability. I carry this Anker cable with me in my pocket everyday and it has yet to show any signs of breakdown like I see with the AmazonBasics cable.

Bought 2 of these in February, first one failed in June when it just stopped charging the phone. Upon close examination, one of the gold connection fingers on the lightning side connector was discolored black and appears to have been rubbed or flaked off the connector. By flipping the connector over, it would still charge the phone, but I was concerned the other side would do the same thing so I returned that cable under warranty in June. Now the 2nd cable is doing the same exact thing. I still have the original Apple cable that came with the phone and have not had any issue whatsoever with it. Since not many reviews are complaining about this issue, I may have just gotten a bad batch of cables. The good news is Amazon is refunding my payment for the 2nd cable, but they would not send a replacement. I guess they think I'm doing bad things to their cables!!

December 2013 update: Now the wire on the lighting side is starting to Fray on one of the cables!! I am very disappointed with the quality of these cables. In the meantime the original Apple cable that came with my phone is working flawlessly. I noticed the genuine Apple cable is now only $4 more on Amazon...for my money it's a no brainer to go with the genuine cable...
