bought 4 of the knock offs from amazon seller 'elowprice' in hong kong last week. received them yesterday and they work perfectly, both ways, charging, data, everything. Price for all 4 shipped was 11.98, so just shy of $3 for each perfectly working cable. i was willing to risk it if they were crap, but they're awesome.
My last visit to an Apple store I told the salesperson we had recently bought my son an iPad mini and he asked if I needed a spare cable - and gave me a free one. After that experience, I wouldn't buy one - especially refurbished.
I'm not sure that I've ever seen a refurbished cable before.
that's the immediate thought I had...you mean that Apple products are so bad that they have REFURBISHED cables IN LARGE QUANTITIES to sell????? CABLES? how many things can go wrong with producing cables???
50% off original apple wire. Nice. Thanks OP! I personally would not buy generic lighting cables. Heard too many horror stories about them.
but Apple cables that had to be refurbished are OK? I don't know...if a company can't even make good cables that don't need refurbishing, how can you trust them with very complex "innards"? I'd say that this might prove that generic cables are somewhat equal to Apple cables that needed refurbishing on MASSIVE amounts of returned cables....I really think that the quality of Apple FAR exceeds the actual facts...I think Apple would be much better off burning the returned cables rather than admitting that their products aren't up to the false quality that the public places on the brand.
