Great while they work, but limited lifespan
12 July 2018
Great while they work, but they sadly don't last. I have purchased quite a few of these over the years, and pretty much all of them failed within a couple of years - refusing to charge and making my iPhone say "Accessory may not be supported" (and yes, I've tried them in many different sockets and plugs...). Customer service has been good, they have replaced most of them, even if slightly out of warranty. However, the latest failure (which was already a replacement) they will not replace - which is fair as it is 3 or 4 months out of warranty... but then you'd hope that these things last longer than 18 months/2 years!! I'll probably still order another one since I haven't found better cables yet, but I'm slightly grumpy about the fact that they don't last that long. Also, I've been supplying serial numbers of the faulty cables for years, I do wonder if any work is actually being done to improve the quality...
***Edit - I've just seen that there are now newer versions that come with a lifetime guarantee - those might be better value!
