After a few months, I noticed the ends of the cable, where it joins the plug, was starting to fray.
Further use and the fraying has continued and now only sometimes charges correctly.
This has only been used for nightime charging on the bedside cabinet.
Longevity not good, especislly for the money.
Shame on an Amazon branded product.
However, about two months of use came the age old problem of the connector at the lightning end coming disconnected from the wire,
This was a great shame as it was such a good charger. I wish that this could be sorted, to provide a more tough connection at these points. Sadly the wires became exposed and then started to fray. From here it gave up the ghost, unless it was in a very certain position- which took a while to find!
So, maybe if you're very careful with your wires, this will be ideal for you- but personally I'm quite rough and I have now found that a braided cable has given me that added strength.

The cable is thicker than the standard Apple cable and this is good. More charge flows through the cable because it is thicker so it does charge faster. I have charged and compared.
The length of this is the main selling point for me - I purchased the 1.8m cable and it's obviously much more convenient than the standard cable which Apple supplies. At first I thought it was sturdier too but with the thickness of the cable, I expected it to come loose - just maybe not in 2 months!
Will I buy another one? Maybe... As I said the length is the selling point and if I simply put the phone on the floor to charge, didn't use it while charging and left it next to the plug so the cable was flat and didn't bend then the cable would probably last forever. But then I may as well buy any old cable and it would also last forever. I will probably try and change my charging habits a little to prolong the life of this cable - it's something that as a buyer you should consider.
By comparison, with the same practices, my Apple cable lasted about a year and a half.
Ok so after the initial cable was replaced by Amazon due to the end connector coming apart from the wire, I tried to ensure that the same did not recur. I treated this replacement cable like it was made out of gold and, unfortunately, it made no difference. The replacement is now in a worse state than the original, after being seriously cared for. It again lasted about 2-3 months. Unfortunately I can only conclude that while the length of this cable is a selling point, its quality is not.Read more ›
The first thing I will say is the build quality appears superior to the original cable, the housings for each connector are quite solid and the cable itself is thicker and feels stronger than the original. Whether that translates into actually being better, time will tell; but it does make me feel more confident about constantly looping the cable up and un-looping it when i travel, which I do a lot.
This is actually the second one of these in our house, my wife has one and her phone is often on charge on the sofa where our 5 and 7 year old boys pick it up and play with it, and invariably fight over it, and hers has been dealing with the knocks and pulls from that pair for several months now.
A solid product, reassuring quality feel and great value price, how could I go below 5 stars for that?
