5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value Alternative
The Syncwire Lightning Cable looks, feels and performs exactly like the original Apple cable. The one I received does not have any markings as depicted in the product picture. In fact I had to mark it with a sharpie in order to be able to differentiate between the two during my tests.

The Syncwire is recognised as an original when connected to any iOS device...

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID!! Stops working within a few weeks!
Avoid this cable!!!! I have never written a review online for anything but I feel compelled to let people know just how bad this cable and the company's customer service is.

At first the cable worked fine, no problems. But after about a week it started only charging at a certain angle and then a few days later it stopped charging all together. I have emailed...

This review is from: Syncwire Lightning Cable to USB white [Apple MFI Certified] for Apple iPhone 5 / 5C / 5S, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPod nano 7th generation, ipod touch 5th generation - Best Compatible Charger Cord for Data and Syncing - Guaranteed Wire to Work with iOS7 - Fits All Aftermarket Cases and Accessories - Long (3 ft. / 0.9 m) and Portable - Original 8 Pin connector on Lightning End - Fits All USB Car Chargers - Premium Quality with Lifetime Replacement Guarantee (Accessory)
The Syncwire Lightning Cable looks, feels and performs exactly like the original Apple cable. The one I received does not have any markings as depicted in the product picture. In fact I had to mark it with a sharpie in order to be able to differentiate between the two during my tests.

The Syncwire is recognised as an original when connected to any iOS device supporting a lightning connector. It is an Apple certified product after all, so no surprises there.

I have performed the following head to head comparisons between the Syncwire and Apple original cable:
○ Charging the iPad Air and iPone 5C
○ Data transfer speeds between iPad air and MackBook Pro
○ Synchronisation between the MacBook Pro and iPad Air

All tests provided identical results. Update: Tested on iPad Air and iPhone 5C running version iOS 7.0 to 8.0 and so far so good. I will report further as newer versions of iOS are released.

The icing on the cake is that the cable comes with a lifetime warranty.

This cable was sent to me for an honest review.

Avoid this cable!!!! I have never written a review online for anything but I feel compelled to let people know just how bad this cable and the company's customer service is.

At first the cable worked fine, no problems. But after about a week it started only charging at a certain angle and then a few days later it stopped charging all together. I have emailed the company 3 times using their website but have had no reply whatsoever. They claim you should receive a response within 24-48 hours! I was always careful with the cable and it was never tugged or twisted, it was just plugged in and lay on the bedside table - so for it to break after such a short time shows its poor quality.

I just hope no-one else makes the mistake of buying this poor quality cable from this company, they are disgraceful.

Perfect seller. I did have an Issue with 1 of the cables I received, but Syncwire Lightning replaced it straight away. Since then, they are fantastic. Buys these ones and not the Cheap £1 to £2 versions you can get floating around. These are much better. Thank you, Paul.

I've bought lots of stuff from Amazon and never felt the need to leave a customer review, but the customer service offerred by these guys is really awesome. I bought 2 syncwires. One worked completely fine; after a period the other broke (anyone who has an apple official wire knows even with the official product this is a frequent occurence)!

I sent an email and promptly got a replacement 2 days later.
In terms of use, works just like the original (I have bought other unofficial wires which charge but dont sync with your computer).

So far it seems an excellent cable - quite robust which is good because the connector into the iPad Mini, for which it was purchased, seems a tight fit, hence there is some tension when inserting and withdrawing the plug from the tablet. I like the idea of a lifetime guarantee which was the reason I bought it, having had numerous problems with other supposed Apple compatible cables.

Avoid this item!!! I purchased one and was please as it seemed sturdy. I then purchased another one and within three months both cables just stopped working. It didn't fray... I was very careful and didnt mishandle the cables.. I kept one in my car the other in my house.

The first one stopped working three weeks before the second one and this is the same amount of time between my purcahses of these item.

I was very pleased with Amazon customer service as they have refunded the full amount.

This is exactly like the Apple cord but for a much better price. I can't tell the difference between my original Apple charger and this cable.The best part is it comes with a great guarantee.I know if i ever need a cord again who I will be buying it from.
