When looking for an usb Lightning cable I have started to look out for “Apple MFi Certified iPhone cable’s” for those of you that may not know, this basically means that the cable needs to be submitted for Testing & Approval
And part of the approval process, the cable has to go to Apple's independent testing facility to undergo rigorous mechanical, stress, and electrical tests. Apple also routinely audits MFI Manufacturing facilities so with this endorsement on this product you know that you should be expecting some sort of high quality.
I had chose the Rose gold cable which was very nice, along with the aluminum and the rose colored platted cord this cable does look of some quality. I was about to give 4 stars however as the cable I received was faulty as it had a loose connection, however I had contacted the seller regarding this and a prompted replacement was issued and no problems of this cable at all (this is why I do not rush out to do my reviews just incase things like this happen).

What a great iPhone charging cable and it's braided which is perfect as most plastic cables break at the ends where as braided cables seem to take being bent and moved about much more. It fits nice a tight into both the phone and the USB plug and even works perfectly with my fast charging plug. Overall very happy with my order it perfect and I have no complaints what so ever.

You can never have too many lightning to usb cables in my opinion. It is always best to use MFi certified cables. This means that inside the lightning connector, there is a tiny authentication chip that tells your device it is Apple MFi certified and it will work correctly.
I have learnt that buying the cheapest cables which are not MFi certified is really not worth it because even if they do seem to work at first, they always either break really quickly or you get the "this accessory is not supported" message. Sometimes they affect how the touchscreen responds and this makes me wonder what else they could be affecting. It really isn't worth risking damaging your device for the sake of saving a couple of quid on a charging cable! As 3rd party MFi certified lightning to usb cables can be bought quite cheaply, you don't need to spend £15 on an Apple original cable. I have actually found that the original Apple cables are quite flimsy and don't last as long as some of the other MFi certified cables anyway. Braided cables in particular seem to be more robust and sturdy.
This gold braided 1 byone MFi certified lightning to usb cable seems to be just as good as any other similar cable so far. I have had no problems using it to charge my iPod Touch.

A very good quality braided lightning cable which is sure to last a very long time. I am a big fan of these nylon braided cables as they have more flex than the standard pvc type ones and the terminators are less likely to break off. The cable sleeve does not split either like the PVC ones do so these are definitely the way to go. This is pink (which might not be to everyone's taste) but the cable is excellent quality and I would happily purchase this again. I had no compatibility issues as I would expect as this is MFI certified.

I received this 1byone Lightning to USB Metallic Braided Cable through Amazon Prime same day delivery! Can’t stop singing their praise, anyhow back to the product. What can I say but what great quality? I’ve had enough of the original apple chords as they seem to always wear away at the edges and get really dirty due to the white colour. So I choose the gold cable and boy was I impressed. It gives a nice rich rose gold look and the metal used for the pins are of high quality and you can tell it has a strong build. The cable is wired means less tangling and it means it will stay intact far longer! Just buy it! You won’t regret it.
I received this item at a reduced cost or free to review. I have given an honest and impartial review of this item after inspecting it and using it. I have not been paid for this review.
Purchased this to try as my original iphone charger was damaged and the new one i purchased also stopped working after a few eeks. it is so far excellent, i have been charging my phone at high speeds and the data transfer is also working just fine. the braided line is perfect and feels very strong and durable. i purchased the 1m long cable so i can use more freely without stretching the cable. this is a definate must buy i recommend i more than the actual iphone charger.
this cable charges the iphone better and faster than the original iphone cable.

This product charges my phone quickly, especially when plugged into the mains. I love the pink colour as it suits my Rose Gold iPhone perfectly. It's a much more sturdy cord than the ones given to you by Apple, and also comes at a fraction of the price. My only criticism would be that the cord isn't that long, so it isn't ideal if you want to plug your phone in whilst having the flexibility to move around a little bit.
As far as iPhone cables go (and I've been through a fair few of them...!) this one is the prettiest I've ever used.
The 1m cable is just the perfect length, which I believe is the standard length for Apple cables provided with their products, and the braided cable makes it feel strong and durable. I have only been using this for around a week, but I don't expect it to break any time soon unlike other cheaper iPhone cables you can buy. The braiding is re-inforced into the USB attachment and I definitely don't think it will easily snack or fray like other cables.
It charges the phone quickly (again, some replacement cables can charge the phone extremely slowly - I had one that took OVERNIGHT to charge an iPhone!!!) and I haven't had any problems with device compatibility or the dreaded 'This accessory is not supported error' which is most likely down to the Apple MFi certification that the product has.
I'm also really impressed to see that the brand gives a 12 month warranty on their products. I've bought 3 iPhone cables within the past 6 months and this fills me with faith that this product is built to last... and if not then they'll be on hand to help out. :)
All in all, very impressed for £6.29! I will be buying another 2 cables from this company, as I like to keep one in my car and spare room too.

The Apple MFI Certified Lightning to USB from 1byone is a great charging cable. The Lightning cable provided with the iPhone don't usually last that long, they tend to split at the phone connector end. This is a fine spare or replacement cable. I was sent this Lightning cable for a reduced price in exchange for an unbiased review. You have just read my unbiased review. If my review helped you in any way please press the helpful button.
The Apple MFI Certified 1byone Lighting to USB cable is just what I needed to keep my partner's iPhone charged up. It comes neatly packaged in a small box and is about 3ft long. It seems to be of good quality build, and the braiding around the actual cable is a nice touch.
It charges the iPhone right up, and overall, I would say it will most likely last a long time. Most importantly, is that my partner no longer complains to me about not having power for her phone, and now she can't say that her battery was dead when I try to call her in the evening when she is out.
Full Disclosure: I purchased this product at a discounted price in exchange for this fair and balanced review. This did not have an impact on my feelings about this product
