I chose this cable after deciding to go for something that wasn't attempting to be an Apple like product because I have used the cheaper Apple knock-off cables before and they have always been flimsy and poorly made - which is reflected in their price. And while the price of the cheaper replacement cables may seem more attractive, the Amazon Basic cable offers a more sturdy, reliable and sleeker product.
With a product such as this you don't want to have to be spending a fortune on finding something that works. The cheaper knock-off cables may sway you with their low prices, but let's face it paying a few more pounds for something that you know will work and will continue to work without falling to pieces with regular use is worth it. While their are more expensive alternatives on the market (and cheaper ones too), Amazon have offered a good quality middle ground product which does exactly what it says on the tin without looking like a tacky Apple wannabe product.

Having had a couple of cheap cables delivered that did not work, stopped working or simply were so badly made that that they did not connect properly, I eventually decided to try the Amazon Basics version of this cable (even if it was the wrong colour!). The superior build quality was apparent as soon as I open then product, quality cable, well made connectors that just fit snugly without requiring undue force to push it in, and it seems to charge faster than the last one I had that works - perhaps because the wire in the cable is a better quality.

It has taken me a while to realise that cheap cables are not a saving. I am very pleased with this cable, and tempted to by a set of Amazon Basics cables for other USB devices as they are distinctive and clearly a well engineered product.

I purchased this off the back of the thoroughly impressive AmaonBasics Lightning Cable. The plastic housings at both the USB connection and the 30-pin connection had both broken on my Apple charger and although it still worked, it did get quite hot. Now, I know the pitfalls of buying cheap charging cables for Apple products, they're usually inferior to the real thing and I've gone through a fair few.

So, with some experience of AmazonBasic products, I decided to replace my tired old cable for this one. There's no difference in performance at all. It charges well and syncs well. It feels pretty solid, although the area where the cable meets the plastic 30-pin housing doesn't feel as strong as the same join with the USB end. The most noticeable downside however and the reason for a dropped star is there's no locking mechanism when the cable is connected to the device. Occasionally, if I'm on my iPad whilst charging, the connected does slip out with general movement causing the device to stop charging.

I have had two of these leads for my iPhone 4. The first one packed in within a week, but I got it replaced free of charge. When the replacement came it worked for about a month and continues to say 'this accessory may not be supported' safe to say I will not be purchasing another one. Not impressed.

Bought this nearly two years ago, and they're still running strong. Not had a single problem with them so far and the quality is very impressive. I highly recommend getting these instead of the Apple manufactured ones.

The cables Apple give are horrendous. They don't last very long because the quality of the material is so poor. However with this cable, it feels sturdy, strong yet beautiful. Ok I will give this one to Apple the iPod Nano cable I received back from 2007 was strong and it could still be used. But the new ones - a few months and there gone! I'm shocked to say Amazon make better cables than the original company!

In my photo, the Amazon Cable is on the left side, the newer 30 pin cables are in the middle and the older ones are on the far right. Tell me which one looks sturdy.

I've bought 5 of these over the last couple of years. When new, they've been excellent, including handling the higher ampage of iPads, etc., but after around a year the connector stops working. Also the cables fray and wear out.

This problems are the same with original Apple cables, too, but they seem to last 2-3 years (and cost 2-3 times as much!). I guess I've got my fivers' worth, but no more.

I'm now going to try some of the new "certified" alternatives, but may have to fall back on these, as to date the best alternatives I've found.

This kind of sums up my experience with AmazonBasics, generally -- start great but then fade.

In a house where the white Apple cables constantly mysteriously hide themselves (usually in clusters) under a teenager's bed, I wanted cables that didn't look like Apple cables.
Since every Apple product is supplied with it's own cable, I have no idea why this should be.
As with other reviewers, I had tried the cheap-and-nasty 'genuine Apple' knock-offs but they tend to 'fail' very quickly and are ultimately a waste of money.
These Amazon essential cables are great! Dare I suggest that they are possibly better than the genuine Apple cables? Yes I do! They are really well made and work perfectly...
Now, what I need is a way to prevent them from hiding under a teenager's bed... :-)
