How about $6-8 bucks?

Jason from Houston, TX on 8/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works as it should. Two stars for overpriced product. This part cost about 79 cents to manufacture including packaging according to my calculations. Yes I know you to have your markup and Apple has to get their 600 percent profit margin. Hopefully (doubtful) Apple will move to USB type C in the future and stop the proprietary connector ridiculousness.

Pros: Works

Cons: Overpriced.

I bought this to use with my new iphone 6, but the 6 doesn't like it or it doesn't like the radio. It works great with my iphone 5 just not the 6. :(

PDL from Indianapolis, IN on 6/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have purchased off brand cords before and they usually crap out within a few weeks. $20 isn't bad for a long cord that actually works!

Pros: Price

Does the Job

AustinC from Chattanooga, TN on 5/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nothing special here, but it is obviously something that is necessary if you have an iPhone. I do like the size of the lightning connector compared to the old iPhone 30-pin connectors, definitely a better design.

Pros: Compact, does its intended job

Cons: Cost maybe? But really, it isn't too bad for a quality cord.

Apple® LightningT to USB Cable

Rod from Reno NV on 5/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable does exactly what it should do, it works. I tried the cheap cables from Cell phone Internet sites and they worked intermittently. That was a waste of time and money. I have been very happy with this cable.

Pros: Good length, seems durable

Cons: None

They actually work.

Joanthan from Knoxville, TN on 3/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After wasting money on cheap aftermarket cables to use for our iPhones, I finally paid good money to get the actual Apple brand cables. My wife and I use these to listen to music in our vehicles from out phones.

Pros: It works

Cons: Price

I have purchased some 3rd party cables for my iphone 5s and they were not always reliable. This original Apple cable is the exact same one that comes with your iphone. Don't waste you money on an aftermarket one.

It works. A bit pricey but like all Apple products it's expected. Tried other third party cables that are not made by Apple and both ended up melting after the third use in my car charger.

Pros: Apple product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Standard charging cable, genuine Apple product. Disappointed they incorporated a "lightning" name but could not be bothered ton give it a USB 3.0 interface. Works well, seems to charge the phone faster then the older style chargers.

Pros: Double sided, it goes in either way. Feels fairly sturdy, like the other ones. It is small, so you can fit it into smaller spaces for hiding. I was able to drill a tiny hole in my car to make a mount for my iPhone.

Cons: Cable length is a little shorted then I had wanted, not a big deal though. Completely different from all my other cables and docks and had to spend a considerable amount of money on more Apple products so they could work-not backwards compatible.
