My email confirmation arrived 8 hours later.
Also, I can't enter the coupon using Paypal. Using their online checkout + citicard virtual cc no instead.

As I wrote below, their mail server IP addresses appear on mulitple spam blacklists. Many e-mail providers will refuse their connections for that reason alone. Others may weigh the blacklist presence along with the e-mail coming out of Asia and block the message as spam.

I can attest to these knock off cables screwing up my battery.

in what sense? Affecting the calibration or shorting the lifespan?

You do understand that this is just a cable, right? Claiming that it can 'fry your device' is akin to claiming that using a cheap air hose can cause your car tires to explode.
Ahh, I mixed it up with the generic chargers which have caused bad press, my bad.
Apparently I was right - Charging your iPhone using a third party charger or USB lead that does not regulate this as much allows for larger variables in voltage and current, this then damages the U2 IC and can leave you with a seemingly dead iPhone 5.

I'm done with the generic cables. Even at a low price point I'm just tired of constantly replacing them.

This can sit in the glove compartment, and for 29c, it can be a one-time lifesaver. Well worth it. From what I remember reading. The Chinese government subsidizes shipping to the US. If it's not that then the Chinese are just magical. The US government subsidizes. This is one of the best bilateral treaties that China made with the USA in order to screw us.
Actually under international postal treaty, the Chinese Postal Service would subsidize for any volume of first class mail (by weight) that come to the U.S. in excess of mail going from the U.S. to China. Lookup Universal Postal Union for specifics.
China has it's own special treaty with the US. It does not fall under the default international one.

I received mine. No issues so far. I use it in the car for charging an iPhone 5. Going to order one more.

even if it ends up being complete trash, .29$ is worth the risk.

saving a few dollars and taking the risk of frying your 600 hundred phone is NOT worth the risk
posted: Jun. 29, 2014 @ 5:41p
after reading the above article, maybe its not actually worth the risk. Good to have some specific information rather than the anecdotal low quality warnings.

If you are looking for a Apple MFi Certified lightning cable, I recommend you to buy the Kinkoo brand MFI lightning cable at Amazon.com with a very good price. This cable is 4 feet and they offer 15 months warranty, I bought 2 for my iPhone 5s and iPad mini, and it’s perfectly fits my otter box case, great product.
