Several moths ago I ordered these and the lightning end was bigger than the Apple cable and it didn't click in. I ordered on the last deal which was delivered a week or so ago. These are virtually indistinguishable from the Apple cable. The lightning end is the same size and it clicks in the same. So far so good.
Is the problem a matter of the wire breaking or is it about frying your iPod?
It appears the wire breaking off... (which just happened on a 30pin knockoff cable from fleabay) is the issue...
Quote from review posted 8hrs ago on Amz: I been using the ones I got since last month and they have been working fine except one... I saw they offer one year warranty so I contacted them last week and got it replaced in four days.
I don't own iAnything... but I'm sure they'll come in handy...
either someone got paid to post these posts or they all ignore this important review.
I brought these when I need additional cable in my car for charging when they sell it for 3.99 for 3 with a coupon. This is the trick they play. hike the price and make you feel good with the coupon value. With my previous iPhone chargers/cables i brought from all these Chinese suppliers for 1 dollar or less I never has issue and I jumped in for a 3 pack. Oh boy I am totally wrong.
1 st one failed in a day in my car with plastic housing at the lightning plug end came apart and inside it has disconnected from the shoulder plate. i tl ooks like they nver used shoulder iron there and just covered it with housing. Hoping I got a lime and started using the second one with very good care thinking I may have been un intentionally rough with the First one.
2nd one worked OK fora week and then it started acting crazy as it connects to and disconnects in a 1time 1 sec ratio for 30 seconds. with Bluetooth in my ears for a voice direction I can't bare this connect/disconnect noise in my ears. I immediately tried pulling the housing around it to check the conection looks OK inside but still it acts crazy and for a while I thought it will screw up my phone.
3rd one is in dustbin once I am home.
The interesting part is When i try to review the product on Amazon I can't find it there at all (I don't usually write reviews). They intelligently changed the product link to a "Maxboost Protak Air External Protective iPhone 5 Battery Case" which I never bought. And that is true for today you can see 2 people reviewed this cable under the case.
The current new listing has zero reviews like I brought first time. - it makes anyone think they will jump for the huge coupon discount and try the product.
Other Business tactics I see here is they sell you 3 and make u pay for 3 and most people won't get a chance to try and use all 3.
This is their third attempt selling with different codes for 75% discount and marketing ploy of giving 75% discount code and lure customers to sell absolute junk.
3 out of 3 won't be considered lemons, its their sub standard.
You will get this same deal every 15 days with adiffrent code from these guys
They keep chaging the product departments and sell this Junk.
