any word on if the 3rd party lightning cables are safe for use yet? Recall a few burnt out iphones early on.

I ordered one. It's from Amazon, so hoping they can help deal with the seller if it doesn't work.
I'll post my experience once I get it.

Yeah, i did some research on Amazon. It does seem like some of the 3rd party cables are bad, but according to the reviews for just the lightning cable from the same company "boxwave", it seems pretty positive and sounds like it works just fine:

I think Apple will NOT warranty your iPhone 5 (should something happen) if you use a third party lighting/charger cable.
