Overview

Our take on the Apple® Lightning™ to USB Cable

If you've upgraded your Apple portable, you'll need to upgrade your connecting cable to use your iPhone® 5, 5th generation iPod touch® or 7th generation iPod nano with a USB port. This cable features a USB plug on end and a new Apple Lightning connector on the other.

Works perfectly. Even sweeter since I found one in the outlet section on Crutchfield. Purchased as one to have in the car.

Good price for Apple cord

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

Cons:

Does the Job

Written by: AustinC from Chattanooga, TN on May 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

Written by: Rod from Reno NV on May 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.

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

Not much to say about a cable with connectors. It works and the connectors seem like good quality connectors and the length is good for me.

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.

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.
