Quote from Truckee :
Just a thought...you could also decline the shipment of the first order when it arrives so you wouldn't have to return it.
I see these comments all the time but it's almost impossible these days to decline shipment. No one knocks on the door and waits for you to answer and hand deliver a package unless it's signature required. For me, a lot of small packages are chucked 10 ft away to my front porch and they are on to the next delivery 😂.

Quote from RussianBytes :
This has a lifespan of 13 months (in my instance with regular use). It looks like it is designed to fail after 1 month beyond the warranty period and literally less than 1% take the trouble to file a warranty claim (time and effort to file the warranty is more than the cost of the item). Be warned!
Wrong. Be warned about posts from "RussianBytes"!

Not really. A no name brand cable with an 18 month warranty vs Anker with a Lifetime warranty? I'll spend the extra 1 for better peace of mind that the cable won't catch fire and if it breaks I can return it any time for a replacement.

He is definitely not wrong. I thought Anker products were of high quality and so I purchased several of the long powerline cables and a few battery packs. I tried to file a warranty today for 3 of the cables that are dead and unfortunately, they came with an 18-month warranty(unlike this cable which comes with a lifetime warranty which is awesome) so those are just gonna be trashed. I also have issues with two of my battery packs where one of the USB A port has died and will not charge anything. I'm probably gonna purchase a couple of these to replace the dead cables since these come with a lifetime warranty but if they start dying early on like the other cables I'll probably start looking at other companies for my cables/battery banks.

Interesting... that doesn't match mine or others experience but I'll keep it mind.

I am not real happy with this RussianBites guy who comes in and dumps a baseless post and never returns to defend or give supporting data.

This is very true until I gave up my front-door privacy to Amazon and got a Ring video doorbell.

For a little while you still saw delivery people (in my case, a specific USPS guy) launch the package toward your door because it was apparently too much trouble to walk the 6 steps. (Not-so-much Amazon people most likely because they're more cognizant about 1. the feedback Amazon is asking about their delivery, and 2. more-direct consequences.)

Some time later they all realized that everything they did was being documented. Then they started delivering things right.

Ordered July 15 last year when the 6' just came out. Fast Charges my iPhone XR and 11 well (been charging using this cable almost daily), haven't had any problem with iPhone 12 yet. I've also used it for backing up my iPhone to my MacBook Pro and MacBook 12" and haven't had a problem yet. The 6' length comes handy when the stock USB-C <~> Lightning cable in the iPhone 12 packaging just doesn't reach when using my phone in my bed

I got an easy brand new replacement by sending in a picture for a warranty claim. The whole process took probably a week from initial email to receiving the new cable. They just asked me to throw out or recycle the damaged cable. No faff about it.

My Anker charging cable broke after 1.5 years because I constantly rested the plug at a sharp angle while it was charging (used the phone while it was on a charger, rested the plug against a surface so there would be a sharp bend at the cable where it meets the plug).

I'll always buy Anker cables going forward. Quality cables, lifetime warranty replacements, way cheaper than big box brands and more expensive than Alibaba (which is required to avoid purchasing junk).

So we have about 8 Powerline II cables and 3 Powerline III cables. I have 3 teens, a spouse and myself, and combined we have 10 iOS devices (iPhones & iPads)...

Most of the PL II cables fail somewhere around the 2-year mark for my kids. My wife's 2 cables and my two cables are still fine going on about 3 years. All the failed ones were replaced under warranty (probably 5 so far), but Anker seems to have changed their policy now. They used to simply require the Amazon invoice and a picture, whereas now they require the old cable to be sent back.

Of course, I don't mind that they want the old cable to come back, but their process for the last few exchanges has been as follows:

1) submit warranty claim, describing issue. I know to provide them with the invoice and a picture/description, and I also tell them that I already tried to clean the connector and tried on another device (see step #2)
2) wait 48 hours or so to get a reply, which basically asks if you tried cleaning the connector, tried a different device -- all of which I already told them I did.
3) Reply and tell them this was already done
4) About 48 hours later they will send a label to send the old cable back, which I did.
5) About 7-10 days later you will receive your replacement cable.

So, you'll be without the cable for about 2 weeks.

What I can tell from my experience is the following (my own opinions, of course):
1) These cables are better quality than most, but do fail at the Lightning Connector end like most others -- just a poor design (by Apple) with very thin wires and inadequate strain relief.
2) Anker doesn't really design the cable to last for even 5 years, but assumes people will forget they are under warranty or not want to be bothered.
3) Sadly they don't offer an advance replacement option, where you can somehow pay for the new cable (or leave a CC deposit), which is credited back.
4) Perhaps the first or second replacement is really "No questions asked", but the subsequent ones require the return -- I don't know. I suppose we are in a minority of having bought so many cables and had 5 or so replacements thus far.
