This product was great with my power pack until today. I smelled burning from downstairs. I ran up to see what it was. Smelled like burning plastic. Sniffed around and there were sparks and smoke coming from this cord plugged into my wall plug (6 outlets, 2 usb outlets). I screamed and kicked out of the wall. Immediately the sparks stopped but it was too hot to touch. I used an oven mitt to pick it up and bring outside. Had I not been home I don’t know what would have happened. So now my cord is obviously fried, the power pack and my wall plug. Amazon is going to do an investigation. They refunded my money for the cord and power back. But I feel the manufacturer or seller needs to refund my money for my outlet plug. I was so scared but so thankful I was home. Do not buy!!!!!!

After 11 month every day use, one day I felt the lightning terminal overheated w/ my iPhone X. It stopped charging. After sleep for six hours later, I tried to reconnect the cable and when I picked out the terminal, I felt a fire from the lightning terminal; actually my thumb was a little burnt. Even I saw the smoke a little. I plugged out the cable from a charger immediately. It was dangerous situation. The picture shows the burnt cable.

1. I found the CableCreation posted the comment toward this review. I asked the support if I still could get the refund.

2. The support contacted me by email: "If you agree, we would like to send you a free replacement to try again , or assist you with a refund." - I replied "I prefer getting the refund."

3. The support contacted me by email: "We just noticed that your item was purcahsed in the year 2016, and you used the cable for more than one year, so do you agree with a partial refund, for example $5 (the total of the order is $9.99) ?"

4. I replied "The point is not how long I used, Th point is that cable triggered to the fire and my thumb burnt. And also I happened less than a year (11month). I simply didn't noticed your comment. I thought it has the lifetime warranty."

5. The support contacted me by email: In order to remedy your shopping experience, we would like to send you a free replacement to try again. And we will also provide a full refund for you.

I've been in electronics since 1963, when the Air Force sent me to school for a year. I've installed and modified gear around the world, I've fabricated complex cables. These cables are well built and protected by a tough, abrasion-resistant woven outer cover. I've used the for months now, including rolling them up for travel. They're still like new, they work flawlessly. They can kink up, as they're a bit stiff. If not for that, I'd give them five stars.

So unhappy with this product. Purchased one which seemed to work well and then a short few weeks later it shorted out and just did not work at all. Tried to contact the seller but was going to have to pay return shipping two ways for a replacement. Thought it might be less expensive to just try a new one so I stupidly bought a new one and the same thing happened. I don’t recommend. UPDATE: Told that a refund was issued but it was for less than what I paid. The (incorrect) amount shows in the details on my account as a refund but was never applied to my paypal or credit card. Now the last one that I stupidly purchased no longer works.

I've been using this cable for the last week every day for the last week on vacation to power my dying iPhone 5s. She's been kissing the bed at 4 hours. I needed a quick solution. Portable charger plus this bad boy. I can't even give this workhorse enough praise.

If you want to put your phone in your pocket with a small single 18650 charger, this is that cable. You can also use it to flip the battery behind the phone for a grip.

Each end is constructed inside a metal shell made from aluminum. The cable portion is wrapped in polyester or paracord wrapping, giving it extra abrasion resistance. Some of the paint has worn off, but it feels nice and tight in my new phone.

Amazon listing says it's 1.2 meters (47.24 inches). Product description says "CableCreation 4 Feet Lightning to USB." Actual product measures 40-1/2" end to end, so cable itself is well under 40 inches, not even remotely close to 1.2 meters or to 4 feet. I ordered this cable specifically because I need 4 feet to use my phone in my truck, so 40 inches does not work. I'll keep it because I can always use another charge cable, but now I still
have to find a cable that is actually 4 feet. Aside from that complete failure of fitness for purpose, it is listed as black/white, but it's actually gray. Not a big deal unless your cables are color coded for various devices. Overall, very disappointed.

I'm really happy with what was shipped. I love the pink color, it's quite sturdy and durable feeling, it charges my iPhone very quickly, and I love the 6' length (solves a lot of problems). I've seen the reviews of it overheating so if I have any problem like that, I will update this review. But, so far so great.
3/4/20: UPDATE: Almost exactly three months after receiving it, it suddenly stopped charging. It just sits in a room and gets charged once a day (I wasn't rough with it at all). I've contacted the seller to see if there's anything they can do for me. Will update.
3/6/20: UPDATE: I emailed the seller and they shipped a new one out to me the next day. Works great!

I’ve had this cord for about 6 months which is a long time in my experience with chargers, especially inexpensive ones. It’s sleek, matches my rose gold phone perfectly, charges my phone very quickly and it’s surprisingly durable. This is my travel charger that I keep in my purse and use daily, I even carelessly wrap it tightly with a rubber band to save space and it still works perfectly. I keep my phone plugged into it for the entire duration of my 8-11 hour work shifts and even use it constantly while charging and it’s still holding up nicely. I wish this came in a 12ft length!

The contact made by the cable to the phone is less than perfect. This seems a common problem despite MFI certification that some cables make good contact and some dont. In the past Amazon Basic cables have worked well but this one not - dont know where I can get cables from in future. Result is that I am not using it but never got round to returning it.

So far so good - I think? My only hesitation it that just sometimes my iPhone 7 wont recognise the cable (charge). In fairness its plugged into the USB port on a Pioneer radio in the car so it could be this thats at fault?

For the price, im happy enough.

High quality link which I purchased to connect an Anker back-up charger to an iPhone. The short length is ideal for portability and the quality is perfectly acceptable.

Nature abhors a tidy cable. Keeps charged devices simple and neat at home or on the move when I want to plug in an i-device with my 12" MacBook or battery booster. No more untangling unnecessarily long cables! Feels high quality and bends easily to fit in a cable tidy pouch. Get two and a single USB extension cable with split zipper.

It’s just the right length for charging my iPod in my pocket or back pack.
