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.
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.
Day 3- Works sporadically well. Doesn't seem to provide full functionality at all times. Sometimes I can use my radio controls to advance tracks and pause, sometimes I cannot. Sometimes it can't read the iphone, sometimes it can. Definitely NOT issue free. Charges fine 100% of the time so if that is your only use I recommend this cable. If you are looking to sync or use with a third party device it is not a recommended product. Just lowered the rating to 2 stars.
Update- I have tried this cable, an AT&T cable, and an apple cable and they all have the same issue. I think it is a lightning connector issue in general. It just doesn't sync and play music well. Now I wish I just upgraded to a 4S because the old cables worked perfectly. Upgrading cable to 4 stars and leaving review in its entirety in case others have similar issues. Again, 5 stars if the connector wasn't bigger than Apple's to be more case compatable.
