    Breaks like Clockwork.
    The longer length on this cable is a god send. But they have turned out to be just as unreliable as the horrible Apple branded ones...albeit at a much cheaper price, so there is that. After going through a litany of stupidly overpriced Apple cables, I decided to try Monoprice as the price is obviously attractive along with the extra length, plus the other cables I've purchased from them over the years have proven trouble free. The first Apple cable from Monoprice lasted a few months and to their credit, they replaced it quickly. Unfortunately, the replacment cable only lasted 5 months (as always...CAREFULLY unplug it only to have the metal connector stay in the phone) and I've contacted Monoprice for a replacement for my replacement. Somebody needs to come up with a massively built, armored USB to Lightning cable with military grade connectors and Carbon Nanotube strain relief that will tow an M1 Abrams tank because I for one am sick of going through Apple cables. I am sure Monoprice is also sick of replacing them.

    PROS: Inexpensive, Long, Green.

    CONS: Reliable in that it breaks every few months like clockwork.

    Lets hope it lasts longer than the last one...yeah right
    I buy the white ones for my spouse and not a single one has not failed in a matter months. That's the problem with sending us requests to review products so soon after purchase rather than months after the sale. To Monoprice's credit, they continue to send replacements. Curiously, I always buy the black ones and I've yet to have on fail. Whether they're constructed differently, or I treat my cords more gently, I don't know. The white ones always fail in the same place where the wire meets the plug. So if you use of these cords in any way involves bending these cords at a sharp angle where it exits the plug, these probably won't last very long at all for you. I'm religiously minful NOT to do this, and so this may be why my black cables have lasted longer.

    PROS: Fairly priced, available in a variety of lengths and colors, quick and relatively problem-free return.

    CONS: If you don't treat them carefully, they're almost guaranteed to fail in a matter of months.

    More than I expected
    The black version of this lightning cable was generously provided to me by Monoprice for review, but rest assured the opinions below are mine.



    Rather than reviewing the cable right after receiving it, I wanted to put it through its paces and have now been charging my iPhone 6 Plus with it daily for a couple of months.



    The first thing I noticed when taking the cable out of its packaging is this cable is much thicker than Apple's - by my estimate, 1/3 thicker. It feels more durable and stiffer as well. I'm not sure if the wire is of a thicker gauge or if it's thicker cable sheathing, but this cable feels like it's something that's going to hold up well. In fact, I plan to start using it in my car for this very reason. If you've ever used one of Apple's lightning cables for an extended period you'll know that their rubbery sheathing can split over time. This doesn't seem to be an issue that will occur with this cable.



    A couple of other aspects that I also appreciate are the color and the length. Apple's stock lightning cable can get pretty grungy after consistent use. I suspect that the black color and durable sheathing will prevent that from being an issue on this cable. The length (6ft) is also refreshing, as it's almost double the length of the stock lightning cable. Works great for charging my phone while lounging on the couch!



    I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting much beyond a basic charge cable when Monoprice asked me to review this, but I'm glad to say I was completely off base. I suppose this shouldn't be a surprise, considering that cables are what Monoprice is perhaps best known for. This lightning cable beats out Apple's standard cable in almost every way, and I won't be using my old grungy lightning cable again anytime soon.

    PROS: Thick and rugged

    Longer than the stock Apple cable

    CONS: None so far

    monoprice lightning cable
    overall good cable other than it did not work with my lifeproof case.

    PROS: great cable. Length is great for using while charging

    CONS: did not fit my lifeproof case

    Incompatible with Otterbox Defender case
    Bought three of these for an iPhone 6 that lives (quite happily) in the Otterbox Defender case. Unfortunately, the shell is large enough that it requires removing the phone from the case in order to insert the cable which is pretty much a deal-breaker. If you use a Defender or similar case, be prepared to return cables or take your device out of the case to use these cables.



    Is the slot in the Otterbox too small or the housing on the cable too big? As a consumer, I don't care. They just plain don't work together.

    PROS: Nice looking cable. Lifetime warranty. Monoprice-backed.

    CONS: Doesn't fit in the (extremely popular) Otterbox Defender case for iPhone 6.

    well made
    These Monoprice cables are their bread and butter. 6ft cables are life-changing.

    Works great, just not with a iPhone 6 in an Otterbox Defender case
    This cord along with several of the 3 ft versions I have all work fine with my iPhone 5s encased in an Otterbox Defender case. My 5s is running iOS 9.1. Never had a problem with a connection or getting connection errors.



    The 6 ft cable will not work with a iPhone 6 encased in an Otterbox Defender case. The charging port opening on the case is too narrow and the base of the cable is about twice as wide as the three foot cable. With that being said, I have several 3 ft cables from Monoprice that work just fine with the wife's iPhone 6.

    PROS: Works fine with an iPhone 5s running iOS 9.1 and Otterbox Defender case. All 3 ft cables work just fine on either iPhone 5s or iPhone 6.

    CONS: Will NOT work with an iPhone 6 and Otterbox Defender case. Charging port opening on case is too narrow.

    Great value!
    Did my research and Monoprice was highly recommended when I needed a replacement Lightning cable for my Apple device. Works great and is high quality.
