appleposts.com – This USB 2.0 cable connects your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with Lightning connector to your computer’s USB port for syncing and charging or to the Apple USB Power Adapter for convenient charging from a wall outlet.
We have 6 lightning-port devices in our household and seem to go through a lot of cables. These are still the best option for charging Apple devices and guarantee compatibility and fit with various cases and other accessories. Saving a few bucks on a cable that may not fit a particular case isn’t really worth it in my book and while these don’t hold up long term, they seem to hold up longer than any other brand we’ve tried.
This seems to be a genuine Apple Lightning cable, I have been using it for a few weeks now with no charging issues. This is the very short one. It’s convenient for car charging when you don’t need the extra length.
