One for the old school...
on 23 December 2014
I was kindly supplied this item free of charge, to test and evaluate. In exchange, I agreed to provide an honest review detailing my thoughts. This is said review.
In the box, you get either one or two 30-pin MFI (made for iPad) cables. Both measure in at 2m, and let's be honest, the standard Apple cables have always been too short!
The quality of the material is fine and leaves me with no real concerns about its long-term survivability. I would say that the wiring's outer casing is actually slightly thicker, and therefore better quality and more durable than the official Apple cables.
The MFI bit in the name, means that the end connector has been certified by Apple, so you know it's not some cheap, tacky ripoff from lands afar.
I have been using this cable for a little while now, and have encountered no issues, literally. With other cables in the past, I've been greeted by error messages, either continuously or intermittently. This cable has given me no error messages. It charges in the same amount of time as all of my other cables, and it just works.
If you're old school and still rocking an ancient iPad like myself, I'd highly recommend this cable. Not only is it cheaper than the official Apple version, but also better quality in my opinion.
Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes, without hesitation.
