If you don’t have a 10 foot charge cable in your life get one, and get this one. I have a standard length one that stays in my backpack, as well.

Rating: 5/5 Works great August 14, 2018 This heavier,built to last cable allows me the possibility to charge my iPad while using in a room without nearby wall sockets.The longer length and reinforcement of the cord are features I wanted.I realize similar products can be found cheaper online,but I have done business with company before and if I ever had an issue,they resolved it quickly and sent replacement free of charge-without an attitude! The phone reps are professional and helpful.

Reviewer: Zippy350 Location: CA
Rating: 5/5 Sturdy bright USB 2.0 cable May 28, 2018 NewerTech offers USB 2.0 cables in different lengths and colors. In addition to the standard black and white, the colors are bright. I like the green best of all; it is a distinctive neon green. These cables are thicker than normal usb cables, and a braid protects the point of connection at the ends so that the odds of fraying are less. A sturdy product and worth the extra cost.

Rating: 5/5 Very Good Quality at a Great Price December 11, 2017 I have bought a few of these in the past to use with various iPhones I have owned—5, 5s, 6s and now 8—and am very happy with the quality. You can buy cables similar to these from pretty much anywhere nowadays, but the quality stinks and they don’t last. These cables are rock solid and last! Never any problems.

Reviewer: macsrwe Location: Arizona Age: 55-65 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: over 6 months
Rating: 5/5 Size-compatible, better quality November 9, 2017 I always buy my iDevice cables from OWC. The Apple cables are PVC-free and therefore crack quickly (thank you, eco-activists), and high-end cables from other sources often have slightly larger tip connectors that don't fit the ports in my device cases. OWC's nylon braid makes them extra sturdy, a plus when you share a home and a car with energetic dogs. Aces!

Rating: 5/5 Exceptional quality and value May 7, 2017 My kids go through lightning cables rather quickly and I've purchased lots of them over the years but these braided cables seem to last a long time. I'm talking years vs months. I believe it's the tough braiding on the outside that make them more durable but these are the only lightning cables that I buy now. They are better and cheaper than the originals.
