There are only a small number of options for cables and accessories that fit the Apple Lightning connector. It is well known that Apple has broken with protocol with this connector and incorporates a chip which, among other things, requires that only adapters sold under the Apple brand or those which Apple as "certified" be used. Certified? A simple way of defining certified is that if a non-Apple seller wants their product to work with a newer generation iPhone, iPad or certain other devices that they pay a fee to Apple to get a compatibility code that they can use to register their adapter. That makes it a little hard for smaller companies to compete price-wise against Apple.
But yet there are a few of those smaller companies that are brave enough to compete on Apple's terms and offer accessories equal to or sometimes slightly superior to Apple itself.
Anker has jumped into the fray and has joined that small band of accessory sellers to offer a cable that is truly compatible with Apple Lightning devices. How does it compare?
So far I have only tested 3 Lightning cables sourced from reputable companies ... Apple itself, Amazon Basics and now Anker.
The Apple cable sells for $19.00 and is rarely if ever discounted. The Amazon cable, like most of their Basics line, is also sold at a fixed price which for this cable is $13.99. Anker's cable was selling for $9.95 at the time I got it but Anker does have a tendency to adjust their prices from time to time (the latest I checked it was $11.99
Visually they look very similar, Apple-white of course. The body of the three cables are similar to each other, the Apple and the Anker feeling identical while the Amazon cable is quite hefty at about twice as thick. It is at the ends that each has charted its own course and where the biggest differences lie.
While the Lightning and USB connectors themselves are identical, of course, which they have to be for compatibility, the molded caps are by far the biggest difference between the three brands. The Amazon caps are massive in comparison, certain to create major issues when attempting to use that cable with certain cases or receptacle connectors that are recessed. While the Apple cap is just barely larger than the connector itself the Amazon cap is approximately twice as thick at the lightning side and gigantic at the UBS side. The Anker caps are much closer in size to the Apple with the Lightning end being fractionally thicker (it makes no sense why they would choose to do this) and the USB end also being thicker but appearing to be about normal for USB cables.
Usually the length of the end cap isn't a concern but it is worth noting here that again at the Lightning side Amazon's is much
larger than the other two brands and does not have a strain relief which could cause the cable to break at that point. Anker has an adequate but Apple's is twice as long. The exact same thing is true about the strain reliefs at the USB end.
So, who is the winner? There is no contest that Apple wins. Yes it is expensive but it is just plain better and you are buying the confidence that Apple themselves is certifying that it will be compatible. However, and this is a big however, Anker comes in at second place in a contest that is almost too close to call. Unless you have a situation where the Anker won't physically fit your case there is no other reason not to consider it an exact replacement for the Apple-branded cable ... at about half the price. As for the Amazon private label brand? It loses on every point and comes in dead last.
This review is based on the OEM cable that was packed with my iPad compared to cables provided for testing by Amazon and Anker. The opinions expressed are my own.
*my review, my money spent. This item was not paid for or given to me.
I have bought cheap lightning cables in the past and they always showed a window that said "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iphone/ ipod/ ipad" or sometimes the idevice wouldn't even recognize it, so I decided to buy Anker's lightning cable because it was affordable and MFi certified and I was very pleased with the product.
It is at least as good as or better than Apple's lightning cable and I have had no problems with it at all.
Edit: A few months I of using this product, I have noticed that both ends of the cables get very hot when I am recharging my iPad mini. It's not a big deal, but I just thought I should point that out. It cools down within 5 seconds of unplugging it.
