Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Short-Length Lightning to USB Sync Data Charging Cable for iPhone 5/iPod Touch 5/iPod Nano 7/iPad Mini/iPad 4 - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Encouraged by the previous reviewer's positive review, I took a chance and bought this for less than a fiver. I wanted to use it with my 'Anker Astro2 8400mAh 2 USB External Battery Pack Charger Power Bank' as the standard length USB cable is a bit cumbersome for the pouch. The cable arrived promptly in a small padded envelope, just the cable and nothing else, no paperwork or anything - I guess that's the price you pay for going cheap! The cable itself seems quite thin and it may not stand up to much stress, but it works perfectly. This is the only capacity I have tried it in, so I can't express an opinion on, eg, using it in the car. But for the purpose I bought it for it works perfectly. It is about 13 cm in length so the picture is a bit misleading - it's longer than it looks.
*Edit 17.9.13 The cable has started to work only intermittently, I suspect a broken wire (as I said, the cable is just too thin), and this morning it has now given up completely. I have replaced it with an Amazon Basics cable AmazonBasics USB A to Lightning Compatible Cable (4 Inches / 10 cm) - more expensive but QUALITY! I can therefore no longer recommend this cable and alter my review to 2 stars. Thanks for listening.
