Not a complaint but just a question: how come these lightning charger cables cost so much more than Micro-USB charge cables? Correct me if I'm wrong, but these "Select Series" lightning cables appear to be the Apple-compatible equivalent counterpart to the "Select Series" Micro-USB charger cables for Android. Why is it that these cables are 4x the cost of micro USB charger cables? Are they simply more costly to manufacture?
I am using these USB cables for workshops with the BBC micro:bit. It's nice to have 3' cable and these come in nice bright colors that make it easy to collect them at the end of the workshop. I've only done one workshop with the so far and they worked fine. They are thinner than many other USB cables so I'm not sure how well they will last but they are very affordable (important for educators).
These cables from Monoprice appear to be well made with quality materials. Unlike cheaper cables that are often times ill fitting, i.e., too loose and need to be pinched a bit with pliers to stay put, these fit snugly and maintain the connection well. I would recommend these even at thrice the price!
Awesome prices for quality merchandise! Came highly recommended by an IT Geek I trust or I would've thought it was too good to be true! You can order with confidence! (And I probably now own the coolest colored charging cords on the whole block! LOVE the purple and the blue! ;) )
