    Honest Review

    Works with iPhone 7Plus and several versions of iPad. However, after average usage, the cable area around the lighting connector is wearing out. The plastic covering is starting to break apart to expose the wires inside. This is about the same with every other cable I’ve tried so it isn’t better or worst.

    I needed a couple lightning cables after our original ones that came with our iphones went missing/worn out. I’ve bought other 3rd party lightning cables that would give the dreaded ‘this accessory is not supported’ error iphones. That’s absolutely ridiculous (I’m looking at you, Apple).I’ve used this cord for a few months now, and they work just as good as the original lightning cables. And yes, the cord fits in Lifeproof phone cases.

    Bought to use with multiport USB chargers and for the backpack while traveling. They work and not having a bunch of extra cable is very desirable. One side effect is that they disappear into my wife desk, purse, and car. They work really well with those batteries you can use with mobile devices too. They are very convenient but buy a bulk pack if you want some for your self.

    I’ve purchase this 3pack twice -1st I had little issue until they were in heavy use and because of the braided cable the issue was with the end fittings -I didn’t complain as I thought they were under heavy use-the 2nd set I purchase had issues out of the box -the shortest cable fitting immediately slip back over cable first use-I reported this to company no response-after I started using the 2nd longer cable the same issue only it happened the 2nd week of use! Neither of theses issues were caused by any pulling or mishandling of the cables! I feel the manufactures of these cable should back up their work and replace my 2faulty cables! Thank You!

    I’ve loved my 6 ft lightening cable so far. The outlets in our apartment are placed in terrible areas so having all that extra cable length has been great. I’m not teathered to the wall by a 3 ft cord anymore! My husband has even been trying to steal it from me for himself so I guess we’ll be buying one for him soon.

    I selected and paid for the 4 year plan offered with this product, and the third party warranty company said they do not warranty this product and that they are “in discussion” with about this issue. My “” product broke and now fraudulent activity. The warranty people told me to ask for a refund.

    We purchased two of these a year ago. We used them next to our beds. They are great!! They are long enough to move around with. They have not detached from the plug( frayed like most cords do) despite all of the use. We take them in the car and trips. They are so sturdy!! We loved them so much that we’ve recently purchased more!

    Stopped working at 10 months despite not being used daily. No obvious sign of wear. First you could only use it with the logo facing up now it will actually over heat my phone. Going to order a legitimate apple one.

    I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but I have had no issues. It charges my iPhone 7 Plus at the same speed as my apple certified charger. The length is nice to reach around my night stand and still have room to reach to the bed during the night. Overall it is a basic charger that works well for a cheaper price, who doesn’t like to save a little bit of money?

    These are such ing chargers. I have already bought several. Not only for me but for family members as well. The length of these chargers is great. And they charge your device pretty quickly. They are pretty durable as well. I have not seen any wires coming out or any bending. Very flexible.

    Sucks to see all these bad reviews. Just thought about coming back to check the date of when I ordered this charger which was Jul 1, 2016. And got to say that this charger is still in mint condition. Been using it for over 2 years now and still works perfect and charges my iPhone real fast. Based my experience I would defintely recommend. 👍👍

    this charges my phone, but if I try to use it while it is charging it goes all haywire and delays the touchscreen to the point it is useless. I have no idea why, as this hasn’t happened with any other off brand cords I’ve used…. oh well.

    These cords are a good price but sometimes you get what you pay for. All of the cords are very finicky and will only charge my device if I have it plugged it just right and don’t touch it, but even then I find myself waking up to a dead device. I wouldn’t suggest buying these cords.

    The cord lasted approximately 8 months and then the end shredded off. I am disappointed in the quality of this cable as it did not last as long as many of the cheaper cables I have purchased. It didnt get a lot of stress and the use was minimal so I felt it would last longer.

    I used this for about 6 weeks. One day I had my phone charging and I was using it at the same time. I then smelled burning metal/plastic and my phone felt warm. I unplugged it and the end of the lighting cable was black and burnt.

    This cable didn’t live up to what I expected. It died within short order too. But in the end I was given a credit for it so I was able to replace it for another generic one like it. But considering basics is supposed to be as good or better than the original and their name is supposed to hold water …(much like the way Costco uses Kirkland Signiture) this was a ridiculously easy product to make, just for them to fail so miserably at it.

    I personally feel like this is a must have for any Apple device. The original cords shipped with their devices are short. These are long. The longer the better in my opinion. Good quality. Works flawlessly. I have plenty around the house. The originals collect dust in the junk drawer.

    The cord is great I love having the cord it is nice for when I’m laying in bed watching Netflix. I don’t have to worry about pulling out the cord but cautithis cord does wear out quickly overtime and I always have to continue to buy new ones over and over I wish that it had a little more sturdy. Other than the sturdiness issue the cord charges my phone very fast !

    This was a purchase for my spouse who needed an additional lightening to USB A cable. It works as expected for charging and the length is helpful, but after only 2-3 months, the wiring became exposed close to the USB A end of the cable.I’ve been reading about these cables starting to melt and burn, but haven’t had that experience (knocks wood).Due to the lack of durability, I will probably look into nylbraided cables.

    They don’t EVER last more than 2-4mos before they’re breaking apart. And we even do our best not to contribute to their breakage. It’s ridiculous. Why buy something that shreds and breaks?!?! They offered to replace our last ones thinking it was a fluke and they did the same.

    Out of 4 cables ordered, none of them fit exactly like Apple brand lightning cables. They have a horrible tendency to fall out if you’re handling your device at all while charging., or if you judt bump your device while it’s plugged in. I have to constantly check to make sure I haven’t lost the charge. Pretty disappointing

    Purchased this product in July of 2016. Used it daily until it stopped charging. Device ended up losing the ability to charge as the prongs became loose where they were attached to the device. I would have to wiggle the device in the wall socket to find the right place for the device to stay connected. I tried several different wall outlets with the same result. I do miss using this charger.

    In an effort to get a cable that will last, I researched and selected this one. I charge my phone every night while I sleep. I don’t use my phone while it’s charging and yet I’m less than 2 months this cable is deteriorating, literally coming apart. And, so, I will be searching once again for a dependable long lasting cable! Does one exist?

    I thougtht is it had ‘s approval and they cost a little more than others, it would last longer. It comes in a pack and one of them was only good for 2 uses before going in the garbage. I’ve pretty much decided that unless you get the Apple cords they are all pretty much disposable. Thats why a buy multiple at a time. As for these, I would buy the cheaper ones, because they don’t last long.

    I bought 2 of the 6ft cords after seeing endless different phone chargers, mostly just because they are brand. I have been using them for about 4 months now. The cords seem more durable than other chargers I’ve used, especially the apple chargers. Charging also seems a tad bit faster with these. For the price, I would recommend so far. If they hold up, I will end up buying more.

    When it comes to Apple accessories, there are a lot of knock offs. Apple put a lot of thought and security into their cables. I have purchased the off name brands in the past and they just stop connecting/charging. With being the big player they are, i thought id take a chance their lighting cables. My thought process was that if they are going to make/brand a cable… it is going to be done right.I was right! These things have been ING! Highly recommended.

    I used this charger nearly every night for two years to charge my iPhone. It worked like just how it’s designed. The materials are a little thicker than Apple’s. The length is perfect. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the insulatiis not enough to prevent electric shock when the casing begins to separate from the lightning end. The shocks were minuscule, which is fortunate, but it could still be dangerous.

    I received these 2 cables and both worked fine at first. Then I was using my iPhone to navigate a road trip, and my phone went dead while plugged in. I tried a different USB port. No dice. I tried the 2nd cable, no dice. Happened to be passing a Verizstore, and they were able to charge it. Tried charging again when I arrived at my destination, no dice. Used a friend’s cable and got a charge immediately. Returning product.

    Look, I know it’s a gamble when purchasing these chargers anywhere other than Apple (not sure why – but it is) – trusted would be a sure bet, I purchased this 10 footer and a 3-pack, one of those from the three pack stopped working already – assume it’s just a matter of time before the rest fail – why is this so difficult?

    I used this charger for less than a month. It broke me with fair use and now it is not properly charging. The charger is cheaply made and specifically the part that connects to the phone is especially prone to breaking. I would recommend that you spend a few more dollars and buy a better charger. This is an easy fix ‘s part. They don’t glue the charger well enough to the plastic connector. This is the second charger from with this issue. A month’s use should not break a charger this easily.

    I bought these 3 months ago and was completely disappointed when multiple cables I purchased frayed where the cord meets the lightning connector. Now when using them my phone intermittently goes from charging, to not charging, to charging based the frayed cable.Surprised would put its name/logo such a poor product…I had chosen it thinking that the quality checks to put their name the product would lead to a solid and durable product.Clearly that is not the case. Save your money here and buy an alternative charger product.

    I consider myself someone who takes good care of electronics and such- Specially with cables, I make sure that they’re not being bent at the connect, or that weight is hanging off of them, etc. Anyway, not 3 days after receiving this cable, as soas I would move my phone slightly, it would disconnect and connect. I opted for a replacement, assuming maybe I had a defective cable, but with the replacement, it was the same thing – cable was intermittently disconnecting/connecting again with even the slightest movements. Very disappointed. Other than that, cable works fine if not moved at all.

    Lightning cables are sort of infamous for breaking. So one is in the positiof paying the Apple Tax for the OEM ones or look for a 3rd part one. did a good job sourcing thrse and the cables are holding up well for generics. They are not top-of-the-line generics, for instance the lightning end one of mine cracked and it’s not gel filled so less secure than some others. But for an economy cable that does the job it fits my bang-for-buck criteria and I’ll stick with these cables one these ones wear out; which I’m sure they will.My advise : get some shrink tube (it’s cheap) and keep it around to reinforce the head end of theee and other cables. I find it can lengthen the life of cables quite a bit.

    Seems like I buy 20 of these a year! We travel from Fl to OH several times a year and I’m always forgetting to pack charging cables so whenever I find these charging cables sale or whenever my supply gets low I order extras. They have always been received when promised and they work great! I’ve purchased other brands that weren’t MFI certified that will work 1-2 times that say they are Apple compatible but when I have used those kind it will say that they don’t support the device even after seeming to charge my iPhone a few times prior. And the cheap knock off versions have had the cover over the wires has come apart & the wires were showing after only having them a month or so. Considering how much we spend cellphones it’s definitely worth spending a bit more to protect our investment.

    Um… works ironically better than other knock off apple stuff. Had one that gave out me after 6 months… then went through a slew of cables… some not lasting more than a day… got this one again, and so far no problems… ironically probably spent as much as an apple cable would have cost in the first place…

    I have purchased several of these cables in various lengths. For the price, I keep one at home, the office, girlfriends house, suitcase, motorcycle, and in the truck. The 10′ length is great for being able to use the iPhone while it’s charging.My first purchase was April 2018 and I have not had any trouble with any of the cables.My only suggestifor would be for the lightning end to have a smaller cap. Some of the iPhone cases have a smaller hole for the charger and this cap can get in the way.

    I don’t know how long these products are supposed to last usually, but I have had mine for a year now. It has JUST passed the 1-year limited warranty that puts it. One of the ends is coming apart, and you can see the interior wiring. I don’t expect it to work much longer, though as of right now it is still charging just fine. For the price, you really are getting a great deal, and like i said, a year of wear and tear has this product looking IMMACULATE in comparisto Apple’s products.

    I’ve used this cable daily for a year, and it still looks and performs like new. I’ve had issues with the cheaper cables available , so this is a great compromise, coming in at under a 1/3 the price of the Apple branded cable. Having a 6′ cable is luxurious for accessing your phone while it’s charging behind a piece of furniture, as seems to be the case at most Airbnbs I stay at.

    First cord worked literally once. The second time I went to use it, it was a dud. Tried everything. Different outlet, different cube, upside down. It’s dead. The second cord is currently working but it’s my first time using it… I’m skeptical how long it will last. Sick of buying charging cords that work once…. open to suggestions for better ones.

    The first two years of using this product, it worked great. After that however, the connectibetween my phone and the charger were spotty, where I often would have to move the cable in different positions to even charge it. If you’re looking for a short term charger, this is great. Long term is a different story however.

I wanted to be able to use my iPad farther away from an electrical plug than the standard 3 feet, and saw this 6 foot cord.

    So far these are working great for me. I ordered two. Work much better than many cheap ones I’ve gotten. My only concern is that I assumed basics products are well-tested for quality, so I didn’t realize there were so many reviewers who had problems with the charger burning!! I didn’t read the reviews until later. So although they seem great, I’m taking one star off for the worry.😜

    I bought 4 of these not too long ago and 2 of them already broke. I thought it would be a good buy since Apple charging cables cost too much and also brake over time. Well, now I’m only buying Apple brand since these lasted not even 2 months. Cable isn’t as flexible as the Apple brand, so I’m guessing that is why they broke faster.

    I ordered 2 of these in May 2017 and in June one quit working and in July the other quit working. There is no longevity to this product. If you are fine with this product lasting approximately 1 year, by all means order it. I did not use these chargers heavily. Only my commute to and from work – about 30 minutes a day – if that and sometimes longer road trips. I was disappointed as this is the level of quality I would expect from Belkin and other brands, but I thought Basics would be higher quality. I am giving it 3 stars since it worked while I has it, but once it is gone, it’s toast. More e-waste to figure out how to dispose of and divert from a landfill.

    I’ve been using these USBs for years and it’s pretty decent. Apple USBs in general don’t last a very long time so I’m not expecting these to last long…the original apple ones don’t last long either. HOWEVER I found that if you wrap the cord right under the plug part in electric tape to stop it from bending too much at funky angles it makes it last wayyy longer. The main reaswhy USB apple chargers break is because the cord is sooo flimsy at this part. These USBs last about 6 months to a year. I will say though it charges way faster than the apple chord (may make your phone a little hotter, but i haven’t run into any issues with that)

    I was looking for a short cord to use with my battery pack and this was the only one I could find . Based other reviews, I was kind of wary of plugging it into a wall outlet but since my actual cord broke while I was my trip I had to charge my phone with the cord plugged into an outlet while my battery pack was dead.The picture is the wire after my trip.

    I bought this because of the length and the fact that it was Apple certified. Out of the box, the quality matched the Moshi cord, charged everything Apple we own, my children’s iPad 2s are very finicky. But, after just a few weeks of gentle use, the lightning adapter end started to separate from the cord. So much so that the wires inside are visible. I would expect this if I bought the cords that were a dollar each, but not from an Basics cord. We were still within the replacement window, so I contacted , and the replacement process was simple. However, the second verse was same as the first, so to speak. So, now I am checking getting refunded (doubt it will happen). I’ve already purchased a Moshi 10 foot cord (just like the one my daughter has had for a year or more and is still working perfectly), and will return this cord if I get the chance.TLDR – 2 broke at the same spot, don’t get it.

    THE POSITIVE: I have bought this same charger twice before, and both of those worked perfectly. The length was really helpful so I could lay in bed and still use my phone while it charged. After about a year of daily use these cords, the housing wore down a little bit and the interior wires would end up exposed. But, I was more than happy to just spend the 10 bucks a new cord once a year because I was so happy with the convenience of a longer cord.THE NEGATIVE: I don’t know why they changed what was once a great product, but I can no longer recommend this charger. The lightning adapter that goes into your phone is too big for my iPhone 6, and will fall out of the port at the slightest disturbance. This has resulted in me plugging my phone in before bed, and waking up with less charge than I started with. I believe that every iPhone that has a lightning port can use this cord, so the size issue isn’t specific to my (slightly outdated) model.Basics, please make these chargers the way you used to and I will buy this cord and recommend it again in a heartbeat.

    I am constantly buying cables because I have a habit of losing them and these are the best I’ve purchased in awhile. The longer cable is a necessity for me because the outlets in my house are far from my bed and desk. I’ve been using this pack for the past month and have had no issues with them.

    This is by far the best iPhone investment I’ve ever made. Originally I bought this so I could lay in bed and not have to lay my side while charging my phone. My phone time has gone from 17 hours a day to 23 hours a day instantaneously. No longer do I have to set my phone down where it’s charging and constantly return to it. Now, I can charge my phone while doing tasks within a 10 foot radius; that’s a 62 foot circumference of iPhone usage. Approximately 314 square feet I can traverse while also charging my iPhone.Most useful place I have thus far used by charger: The bathroom. I can now accomplish two very important tasks at once – charging and discharging.Live the life of luxury and buy this cable. You will not regret it.

    Bought this October 2017 for my wife’s night stand. She needed a long cable (10 ft.) to charge her iPhone while using it in bed. She used it at most once a day for 9 months, as of July 2018 it stopped working. The cable at first seems sturdy and well-built. It’s heavy and has a bigger diameter than your standard Apple cable. But, as always, the problem is in the end where the cable meets the lightning male connector. It started showing signs of wear (cracking) after 6 months and after 3 more months it finished breaking and now doesn’t work. It’s cheap so I still give it 3 stars because of the price-to-quality ratio.

I understand that this is an odd and isolated event, but my phone survived the fall, you would think that the charger cable would too. I had to take my phone out of its protective casing to fish the tip out of the port. Luckily, it came out easily. But it did cause some panic and stress.

    I bought this brand because it is MFi Certified. I have used the cheap aftermarket ones in the past, and they don’t charge nearly as quickly as this one does, and they are poorly constructed, so they don’t last very long. These, the other hand, have lasted quite a while, and I’ve consistently gotten a good charge out of them. It’s worth spending the couple of extra bucks.

    #1 The cable is stiff – much stiffer than an apple cable or all of the other OEM cables I have purchased. Annoying when I am wrapping them up or when they don’t lay flat a desk/table top .#2 It is four inches shorter than other cables including Apple cables.#3 the feel of the cable is not that soft plastic feel that Apple and other OEM cables have.If you are OK with all of these – you will have no problems. I wish someone had said this before I bought them.The cables work fine using in all applications I have found and I have ordered many of them. I may change in the future.The longer versiof this 3 foot cable is great to use for near bed desk charging while using iPad.

    At first, this seemed to be the perfect cable; it was long, seemingly good quality, and did its job. However, after using this cord happily for about 2 weeks the cord snapped near the lightning adapter portiof the cable. Now, the cord has exposed wires and only charges in certain positions for a small amount of time. When I tried to continue charging my phone, the cord heated up to the point where I was afraid it was going to melt or start a fire. I’m so disappointed that this happened because I really wanted to love the cable, but the quality just wasn’t there. Don’t waste your money like I did.

    I had this for 1 day and the tip broke inside my IPad. Luckily I was able to get it out. The cable is a little stiff and very riggid at the connectitips. The slightest bend and it’ll probably break. I give it 2 stars because the quality is somewhat questionable..but sent me a replacement right away. Not the best made but I give it 2 stars because of ‘s great customer support in backing up there product.

    In late April (4/25 to be exact) I decided to purchase this item again since the first one lasted me over a year. The original one I purchased a year ago is now in better shape than the one I purchased this April. The cord is slowly separating from the plastic part that connects to the phone and the wiring is exposed. I was really bummed when this started happening especially since I never move this charger around. It stays in one place and I only use it to charge my phone overnight. It worked great for the 3 months I had it, but it’s dissapointing that the quality is not there.

    I buy these cables instead of getting them from Apple for the lengths available as well as the price, but you do get what you pay for. The cable’s coating splits from the hard plastic connectors very quickly. The last cable I bought has started to expose the inner wires in less than a month. But you get them fast and they’re not expensive so it’s a trade-off. Convenience wins.

    My cable sometimes stops working shortly after purchase but longer than warranty for return. Apple has said that their new software may recognize non-apple cables and can disable them; so maybe this is happening.I don’t recommend these.Buy authentic Apple cables directly from Apple.com

    I would love to be able to give this 5-stars as I don’t believe it is the fault of this product, but instead the part of Apple’s endless greed that it doesn’t work with my iphone 8.I realize Apple has something built into its software to detect products that aren’t Apple-brand and render them worthless. This isn’t the first time this has happened. All the way back to my 4 I recall buying chargers at 5 Below and having a message pop up my phone’s screen saying it “may not functiproperly” due to it not being an official Apple product.While it seems to work alright with my iphone 6 (which I use to listen to music in my car) it does not work with the 8.

    I bought this in October 2017, and I already need to buy a replacement because the plastic has melted off and the wires underneath are exposed (see photo, taken July 2018). I don’t move the cable around the house or travel with it, so the wear and tear might be an inevitable byproduct of poor quality and/or the length (10 ft) is just too long to last. It’d be nice if the charger could last at least one year.

This cord is longer than the cord that came with the phone and it will be the cord that is always plugged in where my phone will be charged most of the time. The Apple cord wasn’t long enough from the outlet to the table I use for charging but this works perfectly.

    I’ve had the same 3-ft iPhone charger since I got my phone a few years ago. It’s not had any problems or frayed areas even though I treat it a little haphazardly. This charger has a larger diameter and stiffer material, which doesn’t bend well. I wanted a longer charger so it could reach around my desk, but the cable is heavy and using the phone at all means I need to constantly juggle it around or get up to completely change the positiof the cable. I have another 10-ft cable I got from a store for $5 and have had for years, which has worked perfectly from day one.Another issue is the charger can’t decide which way it will charge. Logo up? Logo down? It changes whenever I plug my phone in. It usually works logo down. If I have to change the positiof the cable, in order to make sure the wiring won’t get twisted I have to do a little dance etc with it. I’ve used the charger for less than a month and the charging end is already showing signs of wear.Oh also the cable charges so slowly. I’ve had all apps closed for about three and a half hours, and I’ve gotten about 20% charge. That’s with making sure the charge point is free of debris. Of course I hadn’t checked which side the cable wanted to charge on. But come on.

    The longer cable length (6 feet) is great and more useful. See many past complaints (2016/2017) cable melt/ burnt. Use it fiPhone X overnight charging in past several months without issue.

We usually lose them hence the replacement. I am just learning if you have a genuine apple cable that breaks then the apple store will replace it for you at no cost. Hope this helps.

    Cord worked for a few months but inevitably the cord started to rip and detach from the charging point like most other Apple chargers tend to do. I ended up opting for a 90 degree charging cable and found that the lack of bending the cord is going to make it last so much longer. Not a bad cord here, justhas the same issues all other apple cords have.

    This cable lasted longer than expected for a generic–almost a year. I don’t think it’s quite as strong as the one from the apple store, but, for less than a third of the price, I can’t complain.

    Great cords. Great price. I have used other non-Apple cables and they will work for a little while but eventually a message pops up saying they aren’t compatible with the Apple device I am using. I don’t have this problem with the Basics cables and they hold up for just as long as the Apple cables I have had in the past without the high price. Highly recommend!

    This charger is great in length but it broke very quickly. It would only charge if twisted one side. Otherwise it would buzz frequently and not charge. The beginning of the cord broke and has not lasted well.

    This is my second one and it works perfectly. The first one stopped working reliably after years of use, but I’m pretty sure it was due to being bent at the end over and over by my son. I would definitely buy again.

    It’s Apple MFi certified so it’s going to work just as well as the one that shipped with your phone. But this one is 4 feet longer which is a welcomed change. Another great product from the Basics line.

    I purchased the 6-ft Basics Lightning to USB A Cable May, 2018 and it stopped working yesterday, July 6, 2018. This was the second 6-ft cable I purchased because the first one I purchased in January 2018, still works perfectly. One thing I did notice, was that this second cord did not have ” Basics” printed the cord; but I didn’t think anything of it. I’m now wondering if this cord was a fake or just defective. Unfortunately, I can’t get a refund. Not sure if it’ll make a difference, but next time I received one not labeled, I’ll return it immediately.

    This charger was rarely able to charge anything and the few times it did, it was painfully slow. The real problem is that it’s a fire hazard, though.

    They lasted 2 years before breaking apart and disintegrating. Apple original cables are still in good shape with daily use. They need to use better plastics. However, that being said, they lasted FAR longer than the truly knockoff cables, and they work for both charging and syncing. So for that, they get the stars.

    Either this is the worst product ever or I have really lousy luck statistically to have gotten two in a row that are defective. I had bought a similarly priced product previously that only lasted about 6 months, so I thought I’d try a different brand–this one. In less than a week there started to be separatiof the cord from the plug and within 2 weeks it was looking dangerous, exposing wiring, and I arranged for a replacement with . By the time the replacement arrived a few days later, the cord was only working intermittently, depending upposition. Now the replacement is headed down the same road, so I won’t request a replacement, just a refund.

    These are relatively good quality cords in that they are thicker than most. They also have a little covering to reinforce the end where it connects to the plug.

    It’s working perfectly so far, and you can’t beat the 10 ft reach. I do feel like the wires housed in the main, thick outer cover may be kinking a little near the part that plugs into my phone. I’m going to reinforce it with a small piece of chopstick and electric tape. But so far it’s still working at 100%, so 4 stars.UPDATE: The internal wires have frayed beneath the outer rubber housing and it won’t charge consistently anymore. At least Apple chargers will last a few months before this happens. That’s a swing and a miss, Basics.

Without thinking, we ended up going to an authorized Apple dealer who ran a diagnostics to confirm nothing was wrong with the iPhone.

    Very nice lightning cable for the price and one I feel I can have reasonable trust in its quality. I’ve had no issues at all with iPhones and iPads these and would recommend them over any other third party cable. I’ve had other brands either not charge or start and stop for no apparent reason, but the Basics have never had a problem so far.

    There are two criteria for a lightning cable such as this. One, it should wear well under normal conditions. I have not had the cord long enough to know, but it looks and feels sturdy. Two, it should certifiably work with Apple products. Many of the non-Apple cords you can buy look good until you plug them in and then you get a pop-up message your iDevice that says that the cord is not compatible – usually with a cheaper 3rd party cable this is the case. I have an additional requirement that the cable not only work with my iDevice, but also my DJ deck, which sometimes causes the cable to fail to stay connected (with the warning pop-up), even if the cable worked for other applications. This cable passed both tests.

    Nice and long, gives you enough length to leave your phone plugged in and still be able to use it without leaning down to the plug. Seems pretty good quality. I have been using them for 6 months now with no problems.

    Pros. Inexpensive; free Prime shipping (usually defaults to same day)Cons. Periodic error message from Apple products saying cable is incompatible or stops charging; eventually frays at lightening connector.Bottom line. I like saving money but nowadays being sustainable and green are more important. I switched to the more expensive Anker PowerLine II offering a lifetime warranty which hopefully means a greener charging cord.

    The item arrived in just three days like all my products. The item was a 6 foot phone cable, it was packaged fine and looked acceptable upopening. After 3 1/2 months the cord end that plugs into the iPhone and/or devices begin to pull out of the connector. See photo. I then bought a cord from by Anker for about the same amount of money. Their cords are much thicker and heavy duty. I’ll bet the end won’t pull off this baby!

    The plastic used as insulatifor the wires is extremely cheap and inflexible, causing the plastic head near the phone to detach from the insulation, leaving the wiring exposed. The cable arrived June 5th and I noticed the damage June 16th.I’ve had enough cheap cables to know that the wires will quickly start to fray, leaving the charger unusable.Disappointed that basics would put out a cable so poor that it couldn’t outlive the bargain store cables that at least lasted a few months.The original Apple cable that came with the phone was much more durable and lasted two years.

    I purchased this July 13, 2016. Worked fine until June 12, 2018 when it could have started a fire!The end that connects to my phone was so hot, it melted the plastic around it. When I picked up my phone in the morning to disconnect the cable, I noticed my phone felt warm. I grabbed the cable to unplug it and it burned my fingers. The cable end was so hot I couldn’t hold it. The plastic was soft and too hot to touch. The cable was progressively hotter towards the last foot near the phone. An electrical engineer I know looked at it and said it likely had an internal ground failure/short and resulted in overheating.It served me well and I’m not looking for a handout. I would however hope that the manufacture would like this back to verify what happened and hopefully improve it so this doesn’t happen to others. Well & Manufacture? Please reach out to me.

    I’ve purchased so many lightening cables for my iPhones that I was hoping this Basics would be good. I purchased this at the end of March cause my pone kept rejecting others despite them being Apple certified. Now this one is saying it’s not supported. It’s beyond frustrating because this doesn’t get overly used. I never leave my phone to charge overnight either. Despite others saying it over heated and caught fire. mine has not done that. Just because of that I’m going to stop using this charger. Waste of money. Only gets the extra star because the length is great.

    It’s been 8 months or so and no problems. Except for being longer in length and cheaper, it’s interchangeable with the Apple cords I have. I use it with an Apple plug. It’s plugged into my wall. It should be noted that I’m very easy Apple charger cords. I had one last almost 10 years before the neck got weak. Secondly my husband is a master electrician and the house, which he built, is new, so no possible voltage problems. His advice was if you’re using a nApple cord or plug with lesser conditions use a surge protector, FWIW. I do not have this charger one. No problems so far.

    I have had the best luck with Basic’s iPhone charging cords and I have purchased several. I really do not expect any cord to last more than 6 months and all other “off brands” I’ve tried last about a week if they even work at all.

    My cable basically doesn’t work anymore after about a year or so of use. I’m really careful with my cables since these cables have a tendency to fray towards the end. This particular cable has no fraying or anything. Just doesn’t get recognized by my iphone anymore. I do not recommend buying products for Apple products. Either the cable just quit working or it’s no longer compatible with my iphone 7.

    About what you’d expect from any iPhone charger. Bought this one when my last one stopped working, this one worked for about two months, then stopped working. Next, tried a new one by a different brand which has recently become dysfunctional; going to have to buy another soon. Basically, this charger is just like all others – does the job, but won’t last you very long. I didn’t expect anything different, though.

    So far after owning the cord for a few days it has had nothing but problems, every other time I go to plug it in it barely functions. It causes the phone to rapidly vibrate and acts as though it’s being repeatedly plugged in and out and unless unplugged will not stop and does not charge the phone. So avoid this brand at all cost, especially if you use mainly Apple products.

    Super frustrated with this charger. For two reasons… I bought the same ‘ Basics’ charger about 2 years ago. It lasted me all those months of traveling, college, and just normal charger stuff. It finally broke about a month ago. No worries, I will gladly pay another $7 for a good two year charger.NOPE. I got the new charger in the mail 1 month ago and it’s already broken… I hope reads this and gives me a refund or something, because this is absolutely terrible. The product is 100% of a different quality than they used to use and it’s proven right here. The ‘ Basics’ lettering even came off after about 2 days… Now that shouldn’t happen. C’m…

    My experiences with Basics products have all been positive. I’m convinced that their products as well as this cable are in many ways of substantially better quality than even OEMs. There is one killer for the commcharging cable, the failure at the connector/cable junction. It breaks exposing the individual wire strands before they themselves break. The Basics cable has a longer outer bend protectijacket than any other cable its price range effectively protecting the cables from damage and fraying the end connector, right where it matters. Everything else being as good or better than the original in terms of functiand quality this Lightning cable, for me this simple reinforcement makes all the difference and the deciding factor to have purchased it.

    This cable is almost perfect. It is very sturdy, provides no software problems, and has great reach. My main complaint with this product is that the lightning adapter sometimes feels loose inside the phone and may easily fall out of the charging port. This is not that big of an issue as it’s only happened occasionally and provides no substantial nuisance.

    Going to return back after reading some reviews. I dont want to risk using this new charger. The old model was so good it worked for alot of years, never had any issue. This one seems to look fake as well. The basic logo faded once I put my hand the word. please fix this problem.

    Well I was really happy when ai found those apple certified and all , so I bought the 2 pack and got them March 14 (a little more than 2 months ago) and today suddenly one of them just stopped working! Nothing not charging at all ! And I’ve been using it with an original Apple charger only , so I’d say it’s all the same (Apple certified or not they all just stop working after a couple of months which is really disappointing

    This cable was pretty much what I expected. It’s long and it works.However, this cable is VERY stiff. It’s as if the cable is made from solid-core wire rather than braided cable. It isn’t a huge deal, and I didn’t take off any stars from the review, but it is a bit annoying to deal with.

    UPDATE: Well. I did love this charger. Until I tried to plug it into my laptop and my comp said it was defective. Guess I’m back to square one >:( It does work with an AC adapter. Although, when I went to plug it into the wall after I tried my laptop, it didn’t recognize it the first 10 times I plugged it in.FINALLY. A charger that’s long enough to still use my phone while charging, it fits into the charge port even with my lifeproof case it, and I didn’t pay a small fortune for it.

    Tried to charge my iPhone 6s and it doesn’t charge. The phone would show that it was charged to 20% and I would try to use it while charging and it would suddenly drop to 15%.It charged my iPad, but I mainly bought this to charge my phone. I also bought the adapter plug for the wall. If I can, I am returning the charging cord and wall adapter. I’m very disappointed it didn’t charge my phone. I would not recommend this product and I will be buying replacements directly from Apple from now on.

    First off, this cable is ing, it’s a fast charger cable that is way better than the one that comes with the iPhones. Secondly, I purchased this cable in July of last year, 2017. Literally 1 month after I bought it, the cable started separating from the part that goes into your phone but it continues to work so I just didn’t worry. It recently stopped working and I called this past Friday, the 25th of may 2018 and already by the following Monday @ 11 am, I have a brand new charger, free of charge and it’s the exact one I purchased and I didn’t have to send back the old one. ing, you guys are ing, I love you guys so much, my wife and I will continue to purchase everything we can from you! Thank you so much! 10 stars if possible! Not for just the cable but mainly for ’s customer service!

    I wanted to re-order some more chargers but have read mixed reviews about the quality. I decided to write my own review my experience. I purchased mine in Aug of 2017 and they’re still working perfectly. No frays or cords getting hot and melting like some other reviews I’ve seen. My hope is that since it’s an product, that they’d stand behind their product (?) I was deciding about ordering more and after reading the reviews, was hesitant but I reminded myself that mine have worked perfectly. My kids are notorious about not being able to find theirs so I’m getting more for back up! These are higher quality than the off-brand ones in the store (which I questitheir safety). Hopefully, the next time around will be good again!!

    After reading multiple Q&As about this being the EXACT same size as Apple’s lightning cable I went ahead and bought it… my dock requires an EXACT fit and nothing but Apple’s cables has fit. Surprise, this didn’t either. It’s close, but the plastic part surrounding the connector is slight more oval and wider and the cable is thicker. Wasted my money yet another cable.

    I was thrilled with the price and length of the charger. I purchased March 6th, received it within the 2 day shipping window. However where the cord meets the part that plugs into the phone (sorry for the weird wording of parts I’ve included pictures) has split open revealing the wires inside. It’s still working and charging fine, I just feel like for barely 2.5 months worth of use this is premature damage. Will be hesitant about replacing with this brand

    This charger is reasonably priced and does its job. It started to fray at the end that goes into the phone after ~8 months but didn’t stop working until after 13 months. I think that is better than other chargers I’ve tried in the past. I just ordered a second one to replace the first.

    These last about the same as the same wire that comes in white from the manufacturer that is too say not too long for me about 6 months average but cost much less so they are ok for the price. The end of wire at lightning plug would always fray and eventually stop working. I have since found some braided cables from that after a year of use still look brand new but cost more.

    Best cable I’ve had, lasted me two years and only because someone nicked it and so the rubber got cut and it eventually frayed and the inner wires came out, but even in that state it kept working perfectly fine. Always charged fast and stable until it couldn’t anymore and died. It probably would’ve lasted longer had it not gotten cut by accident. Bought a second one to replace it when it died.Edit: I DID get the Black 6 ft. cable, I don’t know if the color has anything to do with the melting and sparking problems. The pictures I’ve seen of the messed up cables have been white ones.

    No problems with over a month’s use so far! Using this cable for my iPad Mini for just over a month now with daily charging it has worked just fine. I was impressed because several other off brands I’ve tried either did not work at all or failed within a shorter time frame. I do try to be gentle with my cables so if your rough cables you might have a different outcome. Visually they look strong, feel sturdy and show no signs of wear in the first month. I will update if something changes.

    I have ordered these multiple times and in different lengths and colors. Here it is. These cords are disposable. You wouldn’t be here looking to buy one if the one you got with your phone held up. These are a perfect price point for what they are. I have received two cords I have had issues with over the years and they replaced them immediately. I continue to use these because they do last longer than the other off brand ones and they are priced right. I will xxontinue to buy these in hopes that one day, in a perfect world, my children will no longer steal my chargers and my cords will never need replaced and my kids won’t loose or lend every charger o purchase for them. Until then I will be a loyal customer.

    I love the iPhone. Always had one. Probably always will. The only gripe that I have really had is that Apple hardware is so specific and you can rarely find a non-Apple brand charger that works for very long or works all that well. My Apple charger started to go out so I took a chance this one because I needed one quickly and it was very inexpensive. It’s fantastic. It charges very fast. It works really well. The cord length is great. The cord gauge is a bit thinner than the Apple brand (of similar length). But, it is still very durable. I would recommend this 100%!! Enjoy!

    I don’t normally write reviews, but I read them a lot and I feel that it is important, especially with tech products, that people share their experiences. So long story short, I wanted longer cables, I have been off apple cables for a long time and wanted the cables to last a while. I purchased these because of the positive reviews in quantity and quality. My experience with the cables was excellent, I have to say, I am NOT easy my cables. I am a college student, and the cables go with me everywhere, I pull them, I step them, I always bend them in weird ways, which is probably the reasthat they are not working now. Anyways, now that the cables are finally not working, I go to my order history and expect to see them in 2017 or 2018 even. So I keep scrolling and find that I bought them in 2016, that is the longest I have had charging cables since I have been off apple cables, and they still work, the cables are just a bit finicky when it comes to positioning, and its time for new ones. I have never had any issues with it connecting to iTunes either. I am just impressed with how long these have lasted and wanted to say something about it. They are worth buying, considering no cable lasts forever.

    This cable was alright for about 6-7 months. For those who move their cables from one place to another, consider buying a different cable as this one will probably not last very long for your.

    I’ve been using this charger for 3 months but I’m not going to be using it any longer. It had been working perfectly fine until this past week. I started to notice something was up when the charger only charged my phone half of the time. By half of the time I mean that sometimes it would cut in and out while charging. A few days after that started I noticed that my cable was starting to get hot while I was charging and continued to play my phone. That’s happened with every charger I’ve used so I never thought that it was an issue. Well today I took a look at the charger only to see that it had started to burn. Not only were the wires themselves melted and charred, but the top plastic part that gets plugged in by my phone has started to melt as well. Luckily I caught it just in time before it had burnt anything else. Definitely won’t be using this brand of chargers again as much as I loved it for the few months I had it.

    This cord sucks. I’m an avid fan of Basic products, this cord could be compared to a dollar store buy one get one free promo. Out of the box the cord is kinked at every fold. I’ve never seen a cord folded, but this one cam folded in a box. It’s so thin, that when I try to straighten the cord it still leaves a bend at every fold. Really disappointed with the quality of this cord.

    it only works 1 way not both. I believe apple designs them so you acutally use them either way you plug them. Pray to good you do not plug it in when youre too tired becuase you will be very upset when you wake up to a phone that is no longer charged or that is at 1%.

    I bought this in November of 2017. It is not May 2018 and this charging cable has stopped working. It is so off and with charging and you have to move the cord around to different angles to try to get it to start charging

    I’ve had this cable since February 2018. I ordered it while I was deployment and have used it nearly every day. Having a cable 10 feet long works ing not only while I was deployment but now since I’m back home in my apartment. Today I noticed the cable was split at the very end(most likely from holding my 7 Plus with the cord crimped at the bottom while laying down). Following the return and refunds the app I was quickly connected to speak to Michelle who has sent a replacement to me. Fast friendly and by far with the most ease of any warranty product I’ve ever had. I highly recommend purchase of this cable. It works and if you have a problem is there to help you.

    I have left my phone plugged in with this cord several times to have it charge only to come back later and find the battery further drained or depleted entirely. We bought two of these and both do it. I won’t buy lighting cables again. It’s not that they never work but that they often don’t and that’s almost worse. Getting rid of them. A waste of time and money.

    I ordered one of these about a year ago and it worked ingly until last night when it wasn’t able to charge my phone anymore. However, it never showed any signs of weakness or breaking as so many of the authentic Apple chargers do. I like it enough that I ordered another one. $8 a year for a charger isn’t the worse thing and who knows? Maybe this one will last longer!

    I loved these at first, but both of them have separated near the plug as shown in the photo. This is my first review of an Basics product to get less than five stars. The strange thing is that the cable still works and I don’t see slack in the insulatiso I’m not sure what is going on, but it doesn’t give me confidence plugging this into my $800 phone.

    Cable cord is long enought to use my iphone while it charges up. Although I appreciate the flexibility, when bended too much, the cable feels too weak that I feel inner wires might break inside, and bumps are left for a while in the bended area. Also, I expected it to be thicker, althought not that thin either. But those are all negative descriptions I have to say about it. the other hand, it feels as efficient in charging time as the USB cable my iphone came with. I saw many pictures before buying it about people whose item got melted or came destroyed. Mine was perfectly new, even in a box package, I do have noticed that my power box (not included) gets a bit warm, but that’s usually when I forget to unplug it. I trust this power cable very much, but not to the point at which I would let it charge over night or plugged for more than 1-2 hrs.

    I like some branded products; I dislike others. The Basics cables are wonderful. They are not only cheaper than Apple branded cables but they perform well (no data loss) and last longer. Apple uses a cheaper plastic for the length of the cable. That plastic doesn’t age well and within a year or so, it will split or disintegrate. The Basics ones are sturdier and haven’t given me any problems, despite their lower cost. In fact, the Basics one are about as cheap as the many cheap knockoff clones in dollar stores, which often suffer data loss during transmission. I have many of the Basics cables in various lengths for my many devices. the other hand, I find electronic devices, in particular their Fire Tablet, to be a bad purchase. You may get sucked in by their low prices compared to other tablets but you should check out all the negative reviews to see how many just die within a month of their 90 day warranty. Reviews of devices seem to be binary: either they work well and people love the low price or they fail completely within months of purchase. Too bad if your device fails just a bit beyond the short warranty product. Stick to the accessories such as cables and look elsewhere for the electronics.

    They’re ok. They only last a couple months, but I suppose that’s about the ‘lifespan’ of all of my cords, so that’s to be expected. They work as expected, until they don’t anymore.

    Not impressed at all. I needed a longer cable after my R&dio Sh&ck one stopped charging (well over a year & a half old). Ordered this and was happy initially. Then noticed the connector point that plugs into the phone area is broken and exposing the wiring. I have never had that happen in such a short amount of time. Some really old ones yes, but never after 3-4 weeks. Sadly I already ordered a two pack of Basics 3′ cords before I realized the problem.

    Meh, I’ve had good luck with the Basics Lightning cords in 3 and 6 foot lengths, but the 10 foot length seems to have issues. I’ve ordered three of them and:1. Stopped being reversible two months after purchase. exchanged, no questions asked, as I knew they would, and the replacement unit detached from the cord with three months of normal bedside usage.2. Detached from the cord within three months, same as the replacement for #1.3. Works normally, so far, knock wood.1 out of 3 is not good odds. I’m happy with the 3 and 6 footers but I doubt very much I’ll purchase another 10 footer from Basics.

    This was a replacement for same. It frayed at the charging end after 6 months of careful, everyday use. While it was courteous of the company to replace it, it happened again 6 weeks later. So as good as customer service is, the product itself is poorly made and not worth any price. Def a buyer beware- facts are facts. Hope this is printed so consumers understand what could happen once purchased.

    I’m really disappointed in this product by because I’ve only had it a few months and it’s already starting to show wear & tear at the connecting point of the lightning end connector. Yes, there’s still plastic covering the wires but it’s just a matter of a few months/(weeks?) and it will need to be replaced. Hm. Very disappointed in this, my first really poorly designed product – cable in particular.

    I have been ordering the same cables for several years. More recently these cables have become thinner and of poor quality. It only took about two weeks for the wires to fray. I compared it side-by-side with an basics cable I had ordered about a year ago and the cord is of an obviously smaller diameter than it had been in the past. These want Last very long.

    These were bought for my husband’s iPhone 6 and my iPad mini. They work very well and still do. My only complaint is that one our cords at the top (where you insert into the phone or iPad) has already ripped open and is bent even though we have been very careful about not doing so. We’ve been lying them flat tables and not letting them sag or bend, and it still done it anyway. It still works, but it’s a matter of time before it completely quits working.

    I purchased the 10 foot cable, because I needed the extra length. The cable, however, is barely capable of charging my iPhone 6S. My previous Basics cable would charge my phone fairly quickly, even if I was currently using my phone while plugged in. The new cable takes hours to fully charge my phone, and it doesn’t charge at all if I am using my phone while it is plugged in.Update: After using this for a few months, the cable still takes a considerable amount of time to charge my phone. top of that, with any slight movement of my phone, the cable becomes loose and stops charging my phone. I know this is not a problem with the port my phone, as every other cable I own works like a charm. I can only use this cable while I sleep, as the extra length is required to reach from the outlet to my bedside table, and I can allot the hours needed for charging without a need to be my phone.

    Thank you for improving the cable! Basics has improved the design of the cable making the ends thinner so they are more in alignment with the phone vendor’s cables, meaning they should fit all cases just like the phone vendor’s cables. Early versions (a few years ago) of these cables were problematic.

    I had to replace the charging cord that actually came with the car charger I bought less than a year ago, so I went with Basics. I trust them more than AT&T with cords at this point. I’ve gotten this cord before and knew it would hold up. I love the 6 ft length. It allows the backseat passenger in the car to charge their iPhone or me to charge mine while it’s in the visor mount. I got the 2-pack this time so I’ll have one in reserve.

    The cable worked fine for about 6 months. No melting or heating up. I loved the longer length for bed because my wall plug is in a weird place in relatito my bed. The longer cord worked really well, I wasn’t constantly dropping my phone the floor.The down side is it only worked for 6 months before I got the “This accessory cannot be supported” error. After about 6 weeks of plugging and unplugging my phone to get the error to go away I gave up and got a different cord. For the price it’s passable but I might spend a little more and get a cord that’s going to do the job it was intended to do.

    The thing I like best about this Lightning to USB cable is that it effectively transfers electric energy from the wall of my house into the small lightning port installed my Apple iPhone.Also, because it is in 10 ft in length you can charge your phone and travel within 10 feet of the wall you are charging from. This provides you ample room for walking or exercising while holding your phone and charging.

    It worked without any problem for about a year but then it stopped registering in my phone sometimes and I would have to unplug it from the iphone and the wall until it connected.

    Purchased the charger for my iphone. Three weeks later the wire casing has worn out and the wires have worn as well. That did not last long. It was charging well and fast like an original iphone charger. I think they may need to make some improvements for the longevity of this product. They are sending a replacement but ask that I return the one that is broken. That’s an inconvenient trip to a UPS store and shipping charges THEY have to pay. Doesn’t make much sense.

    I bought this at the end of December and have used the cord for 4 months and the plastic cord covering is already cracked at the lightning connector base. I only use it at night with light use so I was surprised when the coating started to break and show the cable wires already. It charges ok still but I’ll have to tape it with electrical tape. The product charges well and the length is nice but the durability of the rubber wire coating is disappointing.

    This is the second Basics Lightning Cable I’ve purchased. The first one is almost a year old and still going strong, and I was so impressed I bought a second one for the car. It works perfectly with the original cube that comes with the iPhone as well as other USB ports (car, computer, etc.). I have never had any issues with overheating, and the cables haven’t frayed, despite daily use and frequent bending. For the price, I have yet to find a comparable cable. I bought one from Five Below that dropped my battery by 2% as soas I plugged it in and took ages to charge. I’ve never had any issues with the Basics cables, and find they actually charge pretty fast. Will definitely continue to purchase these.

    I just received my second replacement of this cable. The original was ordered in November 2016, and replaced 10 months later (September 2017). The first replacement was replaced ~7 months later (April 2018). the plus side – has been very quick to replace the cable, and most importantly, there have been no electrical incidents, flames, fires, etc. the negative side – these cables do not last even a year – and I consider myself a light cable user. I typically plug in over night, and then unplug/plug in when I’m getting ready for work in the morning. It’s rare for me to plug/unplug more often than that. I use a different cable in the car – when charging is warranted, and rarely (ever?) need to charge while I’m at work.
