4Different company, same issues. *Updated*
By Nicholas Kohn
Well after seeing how higly rated these cables were I decided to go ahead and get one for each of my kids since we are always misplacing/fighting over cables. Went ahead and bought 5 at once. Big mistake. Dont believe the hype, after just two weeks of minimal use, and I do mean minimal, 3 of the 5 I ordered have stopped working completely. No signs if wear and tear, no burnouts, just stopped working. This is with me instructing the kids to leave the cables plugged in, dont transport them around the house, etc. Basically just plug into an out of phone. It seems the most cost effective way of replacing these cables with kids is to buy the cheapest one you can find, pray it lasts a month and rinse and repeat. Dont do what I did and expect some miracle product here based on the reviews. Just the same trash, but more expensive!

EDIT March 8 2017 - I have updated my original review due mostly to the excellent customer service provided by Anker with this issue. They contacted me and shipped me out 3 new cables to replace the ones that were broken. The new cables shipped out have worked flawlessly and lead me to believe I got very unlucky with my original order. The 2 that were not broken are also still working well. They also informed me there is an 18 month warranty, so while these are more expensive the no nonsense warranty and responsive and helpful customer service have changed my stance on this product.

5Anker PowerLine Lightning (3ft/0.9m)
By S.Leighton
Out of the box the first impressions of the cable are its very sturdy in comparison with the official apple cable. The cable is slightly thicker but has a lot more rigidity, presumable due to the kevlar fiber that Anker claim to put in the cable. It is also worth noting that it is 90cm instead of the 100cm that the official apple cables that come with the iPad/iPhone come with.

Other points: Being certified MFI it is guaranteed to work with all of your devices so you do not get incompatibility messages that you can get with unbranded cables. It comes with a small Anker branded velcro tie to keep the cable tidy which is especially usefull for me when i am using it on the go.

Its worth pointing out that both ends are slightly bigger at both connections than the standard apple cable but i am yet to see a 3rd party cable that isn't other than cheap chines clones which break after a month due to poor quality. Having the bigger ends is the price you pay for having something a bit more sturdy that isn't so likely to tear and break at each end so it is down to personal preference. It is probably worth noting that if you have a case with a small cutout for the cable it may not fit so its worth checking your compatibility. Anker do state that it is not compatible with the Lifeproof iPhone 6 / 6 Plus cases. I have included some pictures to show you the difference

I have tested this cable with the following devices on both sync and charge on the following devices and had the same results as a standard supplied apple cable. Worked exactly as you would expect it to:

iPhone 5c
iPhone 5s
iPhone 6
iPhone 6 plus
iPad 4th Generation
iPad Air 2

All in all i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this over the apple cable in terms of price and durability however if you really want the thinner cable and connections then stick with the apple cable.

3Strong cable, weak pins?
By A. Warywoda
Bought this for it's toughness as the Apple version I had in my vehicle frayed at the cable. The cable on THIS one has been pretty strong (though only 2 months in my truck) but one of the lightning pins broke off.
Maybe I put something down on it but don't think a pin should have broken off.
I'm ordering another one in hopes that it was just a fluke but I'll post back.

UPDATE: (Sept.6) Anker saw my review and has kindly sent me the latest version of the cable (pic attached). I'll run it through the ringer for the next couple weeks and post back.

UPDATE: (Sept.20) After using the cable Anker sent (version 2.0, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0177M4SLK) for 2 weeks this cable seems to be pretty tough. I've pounded a coffee cup into it, unplugged and re-plugged it back into my car stereo ('error-19' message) and this cable seems to be taking the abuse in stride.
Been working pretty good so thanks Anker! Good product!
Again, let me clarify that the cable they sent is different from the original item here. This is version 1, they sent me version 2 and version 2 seems to be the one to go with.
