    Does the status light turn off after unplugging or do you have to unplug the cable?
    A shopper on Oct 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I just received mine and was curious about this too; My answer is that it does not light up until the lightning adapter part is plugged into a phone. Then charging light is orangeish and when it's complete it is green, however, after being plugged into a phone MY led light stays green even after unplugging it (aka once the LED turns on it does not go off unless you unplug it and plug it back in again at the wall)
    What is the difference between Product # 12871 and Product # 31405? Both have Apple MiFi, braided cable, and status indicator.

    Monoprice Essentials Apple MFi Certified Lightning to USB Charge & Sync Cable, 6ft White
    BEST ANSWER: They seem to be the same to me except for the price. I have ordered the regular Luxe cables many times--I give them away to friends--since they seem to work really well. Maybe the "essentials" cable is a matter of branding, like Amazon Basics. Maybe this question is best answered from someone from Monoprice. Thanks.
    The light on these cables is sometimes green, sometimes a pale yellow, what does each color denote?
    Helene E on Oct 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Based on my experience, the green happens when the device is fully charged, yellow happens hen the device is charging. It will also be green when the cord is plugged into a power source but not plugged into a device. This makes it easy to find in the dark!
    Why does the light stay on when not plugged in?
    A shopper on Feb 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I believe it stays on to show you its working properly. You know how sometimes a phone is completed dead and you plug in and it may not turn on right away and you think the cable is bad, it may have to do with that and etc.

    I think that's what's it for and to show you cable has power so the person doesn't have to go and check weather it's plugged in correctly. Hope this helps.

    Good idea, bad manufacturing
    The concept of the cord is great but it seems that manufacturing of the lightning connector itself is subpar. Initially the cord would charge my phone with no problems with me using the phone or not. After 2 weeks I would have to put the phone down and position the cord a certain way and now after 3 weeks it wont charge my phone at all. I look at the lightning connection itself and it seems to have electrical burns. Maybe I got a bad cord but not happy so far with my purchase.

    PROS: It's braided which should provide better long term survivability to the cable itself. The color indicator on the cord itself is a nice little plus to let you know if your phone is fully charged without having to wake up the phone.

    CONS: After about 3 weeks of use the cable isn't charging my phone. After 2 weeks of use I would have to place the phone on a table and twist the cable in a certain position for it to charge.

    These are great for when they work, but fail after a while
    As an avid consumer of monoprice products, felt compelled to finally write a review after another one of these cables started to fail. Basically at some point all these cables either have the cover come off or the iphone stops recognizing it. It usually happens after six months or a year of use. So for the price, that isnt bad, but a bummer given Monoprice usually has the highest quality products.

    Amazing Quality
    These cables are awesome. Great quality. This is what Apple should be including when you spend that much on a phone. I have noticed that the light sometimes stays orange when my device is at 100% but I see that as very minor since I am not buying the cable for the light.

    PROS: Quality

    Feels Solid
    The nylon seems to add to the strength of this cable especially at the strain relief points or where the cable meets connector. It will allow me to tell if the phone is charged at a glance and locate the cable end while in the dark.

    PROS: The cable feels solid. I love the LED.

    CONS: None that I can tell.

    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.

    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

    Good cable
    Good cable, like the led light. Don't know what else say

    Great Apple Certified Cables!
    I have bought many of these in the past for myself and friends/family & they are built much better/stronger then the original Apple cables & you can get them in longer or shorter lengths.

    I use these cables daily in my car to charge, stream music & make phone calls. I also use it at night to charge my phone. It also has a bright LED on the cable to show you it has power and its working.

    Pretty great so far
    Almost perfect. LED doesn’t turn off after unplugging from phone until you re-plug it in ; otherwise so far so great no issues

    look cute but total garbage
    sick of the apple ones breaking and tearing after a year figured Id go to my trust Monoprice and pick up their version based on all the glowing reviews.. I bought 6 0r 7. . for all the kida and extras for the car etc. 3 medium , 1 long and 3 mini. this was 4-5 months back. I got them color coded so everyone would stop stealing each other cables!
    Six of the 7 cables no longer work! either rip at the connector or just stop working. Absolute garbage. You'll be pleased for 3 months and then you'll wish you bought the Apple cables.

    PROS: Cue and cheap..

    CONS: total garbage. ooh that's mean but it's true.. don't waste your money. This is the first Monoprice product that's let me down.
