Top Customer Reviews
I'm not supposed to include seller reviews in here, but whatever. When I received this, the green cable appeared to be a little bit loose in terms of its internal wiring and as a result the phone would often lose connection while plugged in. The other three worked great. I sent an email, got a reply back the same day, and it was replaced no questions asked. Very impressive customer service.
Update: After using them for several months, I am still very impressed by this product. I haven't had any other cables fail, and I am admittedly pretty rough on them. Because they're so cheap and you get four in a pack, I'm not particularly worried about destroying a few and I treat them as such - so far they've taken the beating like champions. If you need a longer iPhone USB cable, you can't go wrong with this value.
I've purchased a LOT of doodads from aftermarket sellers and these Friendly Swede cables are consistently reliable, they come in festive colors and more convenient lengths that the genuine Apple products. These cables work to charge or transfer data with my ipods of various gens, my iphone 3, 4, and 4s and will also charge my iPad 2. I don't know about the data sync on the iPad, I haven't tried it yet but it charges like a charm, fast and glitch-free.
For less than $4 each including shipping you can't go wrong here. If you have been tethered to your wall or computer by a three-foot cable, the doubled length will change your life. Well, maybe not that extreme, but trust me, you will wonder why you waited so long. The colors are nice as well, no more questioning which cable is yours when everyone is charging at the powerpoint.

These are inexpensive cables, and as you would expect, are not made to the high quality standards of OEM cables. That's life, you get what you pay for.
Having said that, there is nothing wrong with these cables, as long as you are willing to be a touch more careful with them, than you would have to be for the more expensive Apple ones. The plastic used on the exterior gets stiff from the cold in relatively mild temperatures, to a higher degree than I would like. I felt just a touch of separation occurring at the plug/cable junction the last time I plugged the Iphone end into my phone, so it is probably going to fail on me one of these days *shrug*.
These cables do work, they do transfer data, they will help you charge your device.
My advice to a buyer, would be if you are the sort of person who leaves cables/chargers in hotel rooms, lends them to friends, leaves them plugged in at work for anyone to use, has a kid that loses things, get these cables. For home, car use... pay the money, get OEM ones.
UPDATE: WOW, GREAT customer service. Per my review above, I wasn't going to worry about the other cable but Jessie from the company contacted me after reading my review and is sending me a replacement pack. That is a level of customer service one rarely sees these days. I have changed my rating to five stars.
