    Premium Charge & Sync: Keep your Apple iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® fully charged and synced with your favorite photos and music.

    Tangle Resistant Braided Nylon Cable: The braided jacket of the Luxe Series protects the cable from nicks and cuts and resists tangling, saving you the time and frustation with using ordinary round cables.

    Aluminum Connectors: Superior internal structural design is capped by aluminum connector heads, resulting in a cable that is much more durable than ordinary cables with molded PVC connectors.

    LED Charging Status Indicator: No need to guess the charging status or turn on your device. The LED charge status indicator tells at a glance whether your device is fully charged or not. The LED glows orange while charging is in progress and turns green when charging is complete.

    Apple® MFi Certified: Apple MFi Certified means that this cable has been thoroughly tested and is guaranteed to be 100% compatible with your Apple iOS® devices with Lightning™ connector.

    CONS: none

    Good Lightning cable, finally
    This cable feels solid, the connector is a bit large (may not fit some aftermarket cases) but the LED charging indicator is a great addition, especially when connected to sources other than the Apple charging brick, to validate a live connection. This is one of two Monoprice 'lightning' cables that I have NOT had issues with the cord fraying at the strain relief (the other is the zinc-alloy 4.5ft). Highly recommended.

    PROS: LED indicates charge status, nylon braid outer jacket

    CONS: Larger connector than OEM may not work on some cases.

    Great Product
    These cables are just what my mother needed, she goes through charging cables regularly and felt that these charging cable could stand her abuse. She loves them.

    PROS: Strong and Durable

    CONS: None

    High Quality Certified Product
    **Packaging, Accessories, & Extras** This cable comes in a small reusable “ziplock” style bag. Convenient if you’d like to carry it in something, or you can simply reuse it for some other small knick knacks and whatnot. Although there isn’t any manual or documentation, the website proudly boasts a “lifetime Warranty” so they really do stand by this product. One other thing to note is that the device is MFi certified. For those of you who don’t know, that’s “Made for iPod” originally which they then expanded to iPad, iPhone, etc. (read: iDevice) Basically it’s Apple’s way of certifying the quality of the cable and if there’s one thing that they are good at, it’s making cables that last (I’m looking at you firewire iPod charger that lasted many many years until iPods no longer supported that type of charging). Furthermore, it future proofs you in the instance that Apple decides to shut down the counterfeit non-MFi cables. Each cable has a specific chip inside that identifies the manufacturer and a bunch of other information. Apple has the ability to “blacklist” these chips that are either clones or non-MFi. To my knowledge, this hasn’t happened yet, but it’s one thing to consider when buying lighting products (or any Apple accessory for that matter).



    **Physical Overview** This cable is from the appropriately named “Luxe” series. The entire cable has a premium look and feel to it. There are sizes ranging from 6 inches all the way up to 6ft. The entire length of the cable is wrapped in a tightly woven braided sleeving. My version is black and there aren’t any gaps or breaks in the sleeving. This bodes well for the also available white version, although I cannot verify this for myself. The website boasts that the cable is “tangle free” due to the nylon braided sleeving, however I feel that this is more to do with the fact that the cable is quite stiff thereby making it very difficult to knot/kink. Either way, shoving this in your pocket or stuffing it in the bottom of your bag won’t be a concern as it should come out and unravel easily.



    Both ends of the able terminate in a hard plastic joint that then leads to a metal enclosure for both the Male USB type-A connector and the Male Lighting connector. Although it doesn’t affect performance and I’ve honestly never had a problem with rubber/plastic terminating enclosures, this is a nice touch that extends the premium feel beyond just the sleeved cabling. All of the contact points are gold plated which is great for longevity. This cable is (over)built to last.



    **Usage** There really isn’t much to say in terms of using this cable. I tried this on an iPad Mini 3 and an iPhone 6 (non-plus). Both devices charged and I sent some data back and forth between my macbook and the devices. Everything worked exactly as it should. There is however one distinguishing feature which is quite fantastic. Anyone who has an iDevice will know that there is no LED indicators on the devices. This actually drives me nuts, but Monoprice has solved that for you. Built into the Lighting connector end of the cable is a small LED. It has two states - orange and green. Orange indicates charging and green indicates a full charge. Now at a glance you can see if your device is charged and you can simply unplug it to prevent trickle charging. I LOVE this feature. It solves a problem which is quite frankly a design fault by Apple. Nearly all of my Android devices will have a visual indication that it is fully charged and I’m not talking about a quick screen on then quickly off - the likelihood of you seeing that exactly when it happens is so low that it makes the feature nearly useless.



    Please note that this cable was provided by Monoprice free of charge in exchange for writing the review however this has not impacted my review of the unit in any way.

    PROS: Build quality, premium look and feel, MFI certification

    Excellent
    Overall these are great, but the cables pick up lint off my flannel sheets and off the floor.
    If the lights bother you, you can always stick a piece of electrical tape over one or both sides of the plug.

    PROS: Heavy duty

    CONS: More expensive than the alternatives.
    Picks up lint from my flannel sheets, and from the floor.
    Lights can be annoying at night, but they can be easily covered with a small piece of electrical tape.

    This cable rocks!
    Love the toughness of the braided cable, and the LED is an added bonus

    PROS: Perfect Length
    Tough
    Quality


    CONS: If you want a dark room, this cable has a tiny LED, not too bright but you can see it

    Luxe Series Apple MFi Certified Lightning™ to USB Charge & Sync Cable, 6ft Black
    I liked it so much that I purchased two more 3 footers as they are better constructed than the Lightning cables that come with Apple devices.

    PROS: Well constructed cable with a very handy charge indicator. Fits iPhone 6 with an otterbox defender case. MFi certified.

    CONS: None so far as it is brand new. Time will tell

    Great Product
    This cable did just wanted what I wanted to do. The length is perfect (nice and long) and the cable seems to be of good quality. It is nice to have the little light to tell me when it is charging. Overall, cable works well.

    PROS: Length...charging light.

    CONS: None
