Used to carry multiple cables, and now I can carry one! Prices, promotions, styles, and availability may vary. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review. First, Apple likes having complete control over the iPhone peripheral market. With Lightning, they can effectively control this. But one little birdie I spoke with recently said that last year, for months, there simply were no Lightning connectors available to third parties, because Apple was consuming the entire supply because they were including three with each iPhone 8 and iPhone X — one for the cable, one for the headphones, and one for the headphone adapter.
It is comfortable, light and easy to handle. I could be wrong — there are definitely some compelling reasons why they might. Our local stores do not honor online pricing. We do not warrant that the cables work for other uses. They saw it as a money grab — a new port introduced so everyone would have to buy new cables. I stripped some insulation away from stranded wire and tinned all the exposed copper then jumped each connection.
You won't be charging your laptop as fast as you would if you had your Macbook block, however, sometimes I forget to bring the block with me or I am somewhere without outlet space so this works well. I think the plethora of old hand-me-down iPhones has really put a crimp the market for iPod Touches. This is the same cable my girlfriend bought on repeat. They tear apart at the tension point near the plug head. A few things to unpack here.
That usually has nothing to do with how the product functions. So from a product perspective this is awesome and therefor get's 5 stars. I had a small plastic usb case lying around and I shaped it to size then used some super glue to hold it forever shut! This is great for the road warrior. Note that it will only connect to one device at a time. Everything plugged up nicely but when I unplugged the mic from the female end of the cable, the plastic piece that keeps the pins in straight came out too inside of my mic plug and is stuck, thus ruining my microphone.
I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review This is an excellent solution if you have multiple devices all with different connections. I do not think Apple will cede this control. Not only is the material rubbery and annoying since it just catches on everything like their headphone wires , but it doesn't last. I have found this to be the most useful cable in my house that I feel I need more! Even if I don't appreciate having to buy a new cable, oh well! Five versions of the cable are available — three of which have right-angle Lightning connectors and two of which have straight Lightning connectors. I like that I can leave just this one cable in my car for passengers and I don't have to worry about what type of device they have. The cord is braided for durability and is far superior to the other charging cords I have used in the past. Please fix your trashy chargers.
One thing that many chargers include is a voltage divider that targets the data pins on the device so it thinks it's being charged by a computer or apple wall adapter. However we only test the cable with Redpark Gigabit Ethernet Adapters. I like the braided cord, it feels durable and folds up nicely. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review. Consider iPhone cases that include a built-in battery pack.
This 3 in 1 charger is a must! The connector itself is also much more slender and compact than other types of connectors. The price was the same but the quality was far from similar. Quality is high and packaging is very informative and compact. This is something I do appreciate after dealing with less caring sellers. It pairs perfectly when used with my iPhone X and iPad Pro. An admitted Apple snob has become discontented with high price and lack of innovation. All usb cables eventually run their life and what determines how long they live is the wire used and the adapters.
A: No — this will not work. I received this product last year on Christmas Day. This is the only time where buying a cheap apple cable has and will ever pay off long run. Maybe it's because it's more environmentally friendly material? They come with black-colored receptacles and feature a compact 5 pin design. I have found several really well made micro usb cables for under 5 dollars at the same place she was buying the apples lightning cable. Since micro usb cables are cheap, made very well and are everywhere I set out to make a female micro usb to lightning cable adapter. I can't believe I bought a defective charger.
