The first cable (6') received was purchased. It was used for 2 weeks, when the wire mysteriously seemed to separate or melt away from the connector, leaving exposed wires, on the device end, not the USB end. While the cable still works, there is no way I am keeping this cable, since it is now a fire hazard. The item was boxed up and is being returned, with 1 day to spare. Exchange/reorder isn't an option, since the item is "under review".
The third cable (6') received was obtained via Vine. It was used for 1 week, and the same thing happened!
The second cable (3') received was purchased. It is currently being used. The main reason I purchased these cables was because they have a one year warranty, which I'm fully expecting to need to use.

It turns out the negative reviews were right. Even though I've never pulled the cable itself, both of mine have come apart at the phone connector side. The cable sheathing isn't sealed or glued to the plug end at all. I'm disappointed that Amazon would put their name on this low quality, poorly made cable.
After i unplugged my phone, my phone with getting odd error messages. Then I went to plug my phone back in at night and I was having a hard time putting the charger in the phone. I looked down and the charger (where you plug into iphone) was like BURNT. It looks like it almost caught on fire. I am so thankful that so far my phone seems okay - but the charger is wrecked. I have pictures of it, just don't know how to attach it to your form on the site.
I would like a refund or an exchange or something - just dont want this charger to do damage to my expensive iphone!
I gave up on the AmazonBasics cord and searched for another 6' lightning cable, but I could not find a cable that didnt have reviews stating that it was thicker than the OEM cable. I finally decided to buy the AmazonBasics cable and try it. I figured if it doesn't fit I may be able to sand down the plastic to a point where it does fit. I received the cable a few days ago and I'm happy to report it DOES fit in the official Iphone 5/5S leather case. I don't see much of a size difference in the lightning end when looking closely at this cable versus the OEM cable. I'm a bit confused about the previous reviews stating that the cable does not fit. Maybe AmazonBasics redesigned the lightning end of the cable to match the OEM version? In any case, I'm very happy with it.
Other notes on the cable: It seems well made. The cable itself is thicker than the OEM cable. The up side is that it seems to be more durable, the downside is that it doesn't roll up as easily. The 6' length is convenient. I can lay in bed or sit in a chair and use the Iphone while the unit is charging.
All in all, I'm glad I picked it up. Double the length at three quarters the price of the 3' OEM cable. Not bad.Read more ›

Worked for a while. Then as iOS updates proceeded and the iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 came out, it stopped working all together. That was a bummerPublished 1 day ago by JPSizzle

Bought it because it was inexpensive. Ended up falling apart within a few months. I don't think I'll buy Amazon-branded cables again in the future.Published 7 days ago by G. Rubin
Worked well for a while but eventually fell apart quite literally. Go with a better cable, it will save you in the long run.Published 9 days ago by Paul
