I kinda wished I had just plumped for a genuine Apple article from the off even though they are £15 (some deals have been had at Carphone Warehouse etc for around £12 but I couldn't find one). That said I looked on Apple.com and even the reviews of their own cables are pretty bad so that put me off.
Then I saw this Amazon basics cable for £12 and the initial reviews were all good. So I ordered one and 1 month later it is still working fine with no issues whatsoever. Always charges, works either way round and has a chunky well made feel to both the cabling and the connectors at each end. Those of you with iphone5 wrapped in a case that surrounds the lightning port may well have issues if your case encroaches past the bevelled edge (the polished line on the White iphone5) on both the front & rear of the phone as the connector is chunky. Personally I have no case and just have protective film on the back so no issue for me.
Fingers crossed this cable is still working in 6 months time. At least if its not I have Amazon's no quibble warranty. Shame they don't do a white version to match my phone but now I am just being picky.
If you don't use a case then that's no problem, if you do then check the aperture size of your case first.
Looking around I stumbled upon this option on the Amazon website and decided to buy two. With the one year guarantee I had nothing really to lose.
An envelope arrived quickly and inside were two easy to open small boxes, a cable in each. This was a nice surprise - I had read about the new zero-effort packaging that Amazon are using and this was my first chance to experience it. I was very pleased.
The two cables are distinctive from the Apple originals, not just because of the colour. The connector that goes in to the iPhone is much more 'chunky' than the Apple version which is quite nice - the Apple cable always worries me that I will break it but this one feels very strong.
However this end of the cable did bring with it a small problem. The case I use with my iPhone has separate cut outs at the bottom for the power connector, speakers and headphone jack. Using the Apple cable the cut out is perfect but using the Amazon cable it was too small. The only way I could continue to use the same case with these leads was to carefully make the sync cable cut out larger using a small knife. It wasn't too much to do but if I had had a hard case with the same size cut out I wouldn't have had any options.
Other than that though the two cables are working excellently for me and I have had no issues. This is well worth the money but just watch out for the size of the iPhone connector.

I thought these would last for a long time, as I have had to replace my iphone cables quite a few times, but this cable had the same issue and broke near at the end of the wire. Read morePublished 11 days ago by T

This is an excellent cable. I took this travelling for 4 months so it was truly used and abused - being constantly pulled out of different adapters and portable battery packs. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Bhav B
Very reliable and easily better value than Apple's own cables, which are hugely overpriced.Published 29 days ago by IndigoJo
