They WORK Ok, but Really Short!
on May 28, 2013
These connections are ok, fit & finish is good. Not Excellent to match Apple's original (none of these ever are, for some reason) but overall, they're fine.
They're really short though. I bought them thinking I won't need the length because I'll use them to charge my phone from my laptop @ work. For that purpose, they work fine. However, I can barely move my phone to look at it when it's plugged in. This is not a defect in the product itself, I bought it knowing it was short. It was just too short for the intended purpose.
Gets 3 stars because the 30-pin connector is not the same quality as the original; it goes in with a bit of a shove, doesn't click right in and takes a bit more effort than Apple's to remove.
I know we're taking about less than 1/16th of an inch in this case, but with electronics, you'll know it right away and it's what distinguishes good products (like this one) from excellent ones.
