Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A simple cable but it seems like a very good quality. The coating on the wire seems to have a little grip, a well... certainly a good thing for keeping it in place. I would buy this again from Crutchfield. They always offer me amazing service! A

How about $6-8 bucks?

Jason from Houston, TX on 8/13/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Does the Job

AustinC from Chattanooga, TN on 5/9/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

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

Cable

Crutchfield customer from Maine on 1/3/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.
