    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
    October 5, 2016
    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
