Product Review – #powerupcables Lighting Cable to USB (MFi Certified) 3ft
Between having iPhones and iPads we need lightning cables in multiple places. We have them in our bedroom to charge our tablets at night. We have them in several computers. We have them in the kitchen, office and even in both of our cars. When you purchase a lightning cable you have to make sure that it is MFI certified so it will work with your IOS devices. You also have to make sure that it is made of high quality materials, like a large diameter of wire to carry the adequate current to charge your devices at the maximum rate.
I also look at the strain reliefs on the cable to make sure that they are nicely designed as this is one of the things that makes the cable hold up under constant use. I also have several iPhone units and I make sure that the cable easily fits into the charging port of the iPhone and case. I refuse to remove a phone from a case to charge or sync it. I do testing on every cable I review on how well they sync the devices with my computers and how does the charging rate compare to the original Apple lightning cable. I actually make measurements of the voltage and current passing through the wire.
This cable worked perfectly and it is made with high quality materials and the construction is good. It performed as well as the Apple cable, it is MFI certified and it sells for ½ of the price. I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. A review was not promised to the supplier in exchange for the sample but I stated that if I provided a review that it would be fair and honest.
