  1. The cable is well built. What isn’t well built is the connector that goes into your device. About a month after using this cable, the pins remain retracted inside the cable. This causes the cable to not stay in the device when it’s moved. The cable simply falls out.

  2. I was concerned about buying these as ever review I read was from someone that had gotten it free or at a discount for a review. It’s hard to take those seriously.However, the official ones from Apple are horrible. I’ve bought those at Apple before and end up with poor stuff, as seen by the 1 star reviews and complaints on those. So, I jumped in and decided to try these.So far, they are great! I’ll definitely buy these again as they work well and are a good price.

  3. The Importance of a 20AWG Charging Wire——————————————————–Many cheap Micro USB cables use 28AWG current wires or commonly referred to as 28/28 AWG – ‘AWG’ is a representation of the thickness of a wire . Higher the AWG number , thinner the wire .These 28AWG cables will barely be able to carry more than 0.5 A of current to you phone , no matter how powerful your charger is and as a result will charge you devices very slowly. Compare that a 20AWG Wire which 2.5 times thicker (or 150%) than the 28AWG cable. You can see visually in my tear-down image the difference in the thickness off the Data and the Power cablesCable Construction & Kevlar Reinforcement———————————————————-Kevlar is actually a trademark of the DuPont company. The Kevlar fiber used in the Anker Powerline is known as K49 (Yellowish in color) which is used for reinforcing cables and making marine mooring ropes.- The cable wires itself are made of Silver conductor which is a good thing as Silver has better electrical conductivity than copper (a common misconception)- The Kevlar fiber reinforcement gives is what gives these cable a very good durability. Typically whenever a cable is bent, some of the thinner silver wires break (see pic) and if repeatedly stressed at the same point (like near the connectors ) the entire connection can break. The Kevlar fiber keeps the cable structure intact (being more flexible and stronger than the silver wires) and minimizing the damage done due to these ‘mirco’ breaks- The Mirco USB connector is very sleek and should be able to fit well even with cases with very small openings- Will truly be able to charge all your devices at their maximum potential speedsCons——— Its has a slightly shorter length at 3 Ft whereas the standard size for most cables is at 3.3 FtSo there it is , the Anker PowerLine is an excellent cable & is everything that it claims to be. It is well worth the $5 investment and I hope that this treardown picture of my cable will come to your mind while thinking of purchasing cheap cables the next time 🙂

  4. I bought the package of 3 deal and 1 out of the 3 cables that came in was defective. I didn’t realize it till I opened the box and at that point it was too late to return it. I spent extra money on this cable because it was “Apple certified ” but I was very disappointed with my purshase .

  5. I ordered these charger cords after the purchase of two other types from different companies that didn’t work as stated. I got them in yesterday and so far they work. They are nicely made and very comparable to the ones Apple sells. They come packaged nicely and arrive fast. They charge fast and I love the length. I’m using them on iOS 10 beta and they work with no problem and also on iOS 9. I’ve used on iPad Air 2 iPhone 5c iPad Pro iPhone 6 and 6s without any issues or problems. I will review again with an update in about a month regarding whether they still work as advertised.

  6. Although Anker’s other products are beyond amazing, I can never say the same for their cables. Whereas their other products have rave reviews on their quality, the reviews for the cables usually are about Anker’s customer service and how they helped fix their initial issues. The negative reviews are more about the cables themselves and talk about how they barely work after only a few months. Here is why…The cord itself is super durable and of great quality, but the two connector hooks that keep the cable connected to your device always go bad after a short time. This makes the cables unable to stay connected to the device. Sadly, I’m always a sucker for buying these and keep trying to give them another chance. I forget how badly these are when I purchase one of their amazing portable power banks, wall chargers, earbuds or speakers. Their customer service is also great and I know I can always work with them if I need a replacement. But I’ve bought quite a few cables from them already and it’s all becoming too tedious for something that just charges my phone. If you get a bad cable, you’ll probably experience the following:1) Anker will contact you and ask if there is anything wrong. At this point you can tell them what is wrong with your cable. You can also reach out to them first but I find I receive better customer service when they reach out to me first.2) They will then go through the speech of saying their cables are usually good but sometimes “problem products” slip through. Then they offer to send a replacement. The first time they did this it was free and I didn’t have to return anything. This last time, however, I was only offered a replacement if I sent it back or they will just refund.3) Afterwards, if you received great customer service it would mean a lot to them if you left a review. That’s why many of the reviews state them reaching out. I’ve even changed one of my bad reviews on one of their older cables to a good one after they sent a replacement.Anyway, this whole process makes sense as people could take advantage of the system if they just keep sending out new ones. But after going through this several times, it’s starting to feel like there are more “problem products” rather than actually working cables! And I did mention you get better service when they reach out to you. When I contacted them since I got the wrong color (the very first time I bought one of their cables), they said they couldn’t do anything cuz I bought on amazon and not through their official site…? Now they only sell through amazon so I guess that will no longer be an issue.In the end, I’m still gonna buy Anker when it comes to their speakers and other products. All of the others, especially the speakers, offer great quality at very competitive pricing. You’d be hard-pressed to find other brands that match them! Sadly, just the small metal hooks, which become the most important part when they fail to work, don’t meet these standards. I wanted to leave this review to show potential buyers sort of the “end-game” scenario to continuously buying these faulty cables. You’ll find more problems than actual durable cables like they advertise. Sucks cuz they are a good brand in all other aspects! Giving two stars: 1) it’s a good cable if you can afford to buy it frequently and 2) for their customer service.

  7. Looked nice construction. In less than 6 months, the head of one of the cables came off when I unplugged my iPhone 6s. I tried to reinsert it fruitlessly. I am traveling and it is my only lightning cable; frustrating. I understood that it is Lifetime Guarantee

  8. Unfortunately as much as I would like to love these cables I don’t. Anker is a great company. I’ve bought their 5 port charger and that thing has been a beast over the past several years. The cables? Not so much.I bought the first one in June 2015. It failed 9 months later. In March 2016 I bought two more. One just failed after 12 months. The other was my backup in the case one failed so luckily I have that (but I don’t expect it to last more than 9 months now that it will be used daily). Now I’m not rough with these things. In both cases the cord is used to charge my phone at night in the bed stand. Yep. That’s it. Gently plug in and unplug each day yet it managed to still get a short in the wire somewhere. This happening even with babying the wire after the experience from the first one.I’ve had and have many other cables. Those all appear to be work horses by comparison. I wrap them up and toss around without a care in the world yet they keep trucking along. I don’t know why these specific cables keep crapping out. Maybe the length might have something to do with it. I don’t know. Regardless. I’m disappointed.Tldr: Steer clear if you plan on using and handling daily unless you are willing to replace them every 9-12 months.

  9. I bought the 6 foot length. It worked good for two months. Then it would not always show the charge symbol. If I inserted it a few times it might charge or might not. Then I would try it later, and suddenly it would work.It was a pain. But I did get a years usage out of it, unlike the high priced apple cords.I am trying another third party brand now that has been around much longer and gets better (valid) reviews. Hopefully that will be better.
