There looks to be 2 different types on the website. Both same price for 3 and one says specifically it works with iPhone 5s/5c and ios7. We'll see if they work. For $6 if they don't I have had good luck with PalPal refunding money.
Ordered a set on October 2nd and haven't received any updates yet.
lynxis said: The only problem I have is that these don't seem to charge as fast as oem cables. 2 phones connected....one to OEM cable connected to the wall, the other no this cable connected to the computer. Both phones had 84% battery. After a few minutes of charging, the OEM cabled phone has 91% and the non-OEM cable has 88%.
I would say that test really does not really show any difference. Phone power meters are not that accurate and may also be based on recent power usage or the strength of the charger it was plugged in to. 3% is nothing. To really test you could run the phone down until it powers off on its own, then time the recharge back to 100%. Let the same phone discharge again until power off, then switch cables but keep the phone and charger the same. Compare times to full.
bobley said: Why would non-OEM charge at a slower rate? Different gauge cable? As Goofy4Deals pointed out, the non-OEM cable was connected to a computer USB port, which puts out lower amperage than the wall charger that was used with the OEM cable.
Finally received my order for 3 of the 3 foot black cables. Plugged one in and it works fine, no error messages. Not sure how long that will last given all it seems to take Apple to disable third-party cables is a system update. The cable is thinner than the original Apple cable or the Amazon Basics cable I have but so far so good.
Forgot to mention that I am using this on an iPhone 5s.
