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.

5Slow warranty service
By Geek
Bought this in 4/16, lightning connector came off 8/16. Does not appear to be durable with the way the connector came off so easily. Attached is a photo of the lightning end. Note that it was very difficult to remove the part of the connector that was left in my device. This is the first time I've used Anker support but they appear to be very slow in responding. In contrast, Monoprice warranty service is much better. With Monoprice, I submitted a claim and received an email later that day that a new cable was being sent out that day, no need to return the defective one. I'm still waiting for Anker's customer support after submitting a claim four days ago. I'll probably go back to using Monoprice with their lifetime-no-hassle warranty vs. Anker's 18 month, slow to respond customer support. I bought a bunch of these Anker PowerLine cables, we'll see how the rest fares. I'll review those particular items if there are any updates.

Update 9/2/16. Anker issued a refund 8/23/16 and has offered to let me try the newer version of this free of charge. They asked for the failed cable to be sent back (at their expense) for failure analysis. I'm impressed that they would go through the analysis since this process takes resources. This demonstrates a commitment to continuous improvement. Updating my rating from 2 to 5 stars. I will let my 13 year old field test the newer version and review that one after reasonable extended evaluation.
