Belkin DuraTek Lightning to USB Cable
Made from tough yet flexible materials, the Belkin DuraTek Lightning to USB Cable delivers the ultimate in charging cable durability. This 4-foot cable is reinforced with DuPont Kevlar, a super-strong fiber that provides extreme strength without sacrificing flexibility. The double-braided nylon jacket helps shield the inner wires from damage. And thanks to its superior strain relief and insulation, this cable can endure heavy usage for long-lasting performance.
The Belkin DuraTek Lightning to USB Cable is available in four stylish colors: Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver.

5. 18mm TPE strain relief is built to withstand over 5000+ cycles during 180-degree cable bend test.
DuPont Kevlar for Enhanced Durability
The DuraTek Lightning to USB Cable is built with DuPont Kevlar, an exceptionally resilient fiber that is a key material in bullet-resistant vests, crash helmets, surfboards, and extreme sports gear. Strong Kevlar strands are woven into the cable, helping insulate the wires from damage. Kevlar also flexes easily, so it adds structure to the cable without compromising its flexibility.
Durable, Flexible Insulation
Inside the cable, many wires co-exist to provide better functionality and conductivity. Insulation protects the wires from damage as the cable bends and flexes, but some can cause stiffness, affecting the overall suppleness of the cable. The highly flexible insulation within DuraTek minimizes friction, allowing the cable to bend easily and the wires within to move without damage.
Superior Strain Relief for Lasting Performance
The DuraTek cable features an extra-long strain relief, where the cable joins the connector head. Made from flexible TPE, this strain relief helps absorb stress and reinforce the juncture between cable and connector to prevent separation. Tested to withstand over 5000 cycles of 180-degree bending, the strain relief helps protect against splitting and breakage.
Reversible Design for Easy Insertion
The Lightning connector is reversible, making it easy to plug into your device. The low-profile cable is compact, so it fits even in small pockets and bags.
Nylon Jacket Provides Extra Protection
Made from premium, hard-wearing nylon, the external jacket gives the DuraTek cable an additional layer of protection. The nylon is double braided--a technique commonly used in rope-making process--to create a highly resilient cable that can withstand even the most demanding routines.

Not just any charge cable, DuraTek was forged from superior quality materials for ultimate durability. Kevlar fibers reinforce the inner wiring for added strength, abrasion-resistant nylon forms a tough outer jacket, and highly flexible insulation minimizes damage from friction. The strength created by these resilient ingredients is further enhanced by smart design details to reinforce the cable at its stress points. This ensures the finished product can withstand even the most demanding routines, and perform above and beyond expectation to deliver a cable that borders on indestructible.

Today, 8/24/17, it's worthless. Why can't the manufacturers make cords that are properly designed and made to to last? I could understand it if I treated my equipment roughly, but I'm cautious with these things because I've had so many of them go bad in such a relatively short time. Don't get me started in the Apple cords that come with the iPhones!!!
Interestingly, I still have my old iPhone 3. I still use one of the original charging cords that came with it. Those days are gone, it appears!!!
Addendum: my item was delivered to me 3/20/17. It's just days over 5 months old. Terrible!!!
It measures 9” longer than the OEM cable. I bent and tugged at both ends quite a bit, and all the connections looked strong. I plugged it into my phone, and it began charging without a problem. The aluminum casing at the connector was a bit thicker than the OEM cable, but it had no problem fitting through the opening in my phone’s aftermarket case.
The braided nylon jacket on the cable feels substantial, and I like the "extra-long strain relief...tested to withstand over 5000+ cycles during 180-degree cable bend test." (The strain relief is located where the connector meets the cable; it looks like a sleeve over the cable). My original cable began to fray right at the end of the strain relief, where the cable exits, so this area is definitely a weak spot in the original design. Comparing the strain relief on each end of the Belkin to the standard cable, they look stronger and much more substantial. See my pics.
My one nitpick is the ad copy doesn't explain how putting Kevlar inside the cable (rather than, say, using it as the jacket) makes the cable stronger. It also doesn't say how the braided nylon jacket is any better than the jacket on the standard cable (though it does call it "abrasion-resistant.") Only time will tell how well this cable holds up, though it looks and feels more substantial than the one that came with the phone. I will update my review if there are problems.
The exterior is a flexible nylon material - reminiscent of shoe strings for boots- and it protects well without getting snagged (by cat claws). Unlike other cables with a braided protective layer, this one has movement and flexibility. Others are extremely rigid and difficult to maneuver into difficult spaces.
Let's talk about the protection for the lightening and USB ends. Usually, my cords bust right at the connection with the USB or the lightening side. The protective coating cracks and exposes the wiring, making them no longer safe to use. (Try it and your iPhone will not recognize it. Apple is too smart for my wallet.)
Both ends have an aluminum shield, then a much longer rubber cover that eventually molds down into the nylon cord. (See photo) This helps protect the cord from breaking at the connectors - which always happens after continued use. Add to that the flexibility of the nylon cord and you have a cord that won't break easily.
No issues connecting, or with having the iPhone recognize this cord.
I took photos to compare this to the StarTech cord I recently received from Amazon Vine. While I think StarTech is a good medium-quality brand, I would pay the money for this Belkin cord for the extra quality and durability. The StarTech just looks cheap next to this one.
