6 months ago I started looking for 10ft lightning cables with the goal of being able to use my iphone/ ipad in bed or on the couch without worrying about accidental unplugging.
I ordered a few less expensive, well reviewed 10 ft lightning cables a while ago. The two main issues I had with these cables were charging time and quickly breaking down. They took at least 3 times as long to charge my devices regardless weather plugged into a 1 or 2.1 amp usb charger ports. If I was playing a graphics heavy game, even if plugged in to these cables, my iPhone would just lose charge at a slower rate! They also started fraying where the cable meets the Lightning plug. All this was annoying, but they still sort of worked... The breaking point came when I was sitting on the couch and the frayed area started smoking, and almost caught said couch on fire. I have 7 year old twin boy and girl, and the what ifs scared me to death.
Those cables got thrown out and I decided to pay a little more for a better quality product. After reading a bunch of reviews on multiple different Lightning cables, I kept coming back to Anker products. The word "high quality" and "durability" were the words I found in most reviews. So I order the 4 of the 10 ft Powerline+ Lightning cables.
WOW!!! These are the best charging cables I've ever used! They charge faster than my 3ft Apple cable! From the thicker cable, the nylon shell, to the reinforced coupling where the cord meets the Lightning connector, these are made to last a long time. These are the best device charging cables on the market PERIOD!
However, I've had plenty of products that I have felt equally happy with, but have never written a review. The reason I had to write this review is the quality, forethought and simplicity that went into everything beyond the cable. The box was thin, solid and well-made... Even the way it latches suggests a high quality product is inside. You open the box there's just the cable and this little white folded card inside. The cable is secured with 2 extremely nice and minimal black Velcro cables. The white card has a simple "happy" on one side, and a "unhappy?" on the other side. Open the happy side and it encourages you to let people know on twitter, facebook etc. Open the unhappy side and it encourages you to call their customer service to fix any issues. It is clear that the founders of Anker care deeply about every detail of the products, packaging, and customer service experience they create! I know just from this first experience with Anker that when I buy any of their other products they will be equally high quality and made to perform their purpose at the highest level. -Bravo Anker!!!

Let me go ahead and update this (4/13/16)- after posting this review Anker contacted me immediately! They were quick to reply and very attentive to everything that I had to say. Thanks to Adam who was very quick to respond, took complete care of me. They assured me that it was a defective cable, and that they would send one out as soon as possible. I received it, and I am happy to say that it is functioning greatly! I have no problems with any of Anker's products, and I still own 6 of their cables, I would definitely order it again. It looks like their warranty is as good as advertised!
Side note, note that I care, but everyone who has seen my new golden charging cord is rather jelly with my purchase. They all want to know where I got that cool charging cable. Ok, so maybe I am just a girl.
Have had this cable for about a week and I love it! The quality of the materials and the construction are superb. The outer layer is made of braided nylon and feels very strong and durable. The cord is 4mm thick. It is on the thicker side compared to other cables I’ve tried so it might feel bulkier to some considering the length – I don’t mind it though. It bends with ease and doesn't bounce back too much which is nice. Both the lightning and USB connectors look and feel great. They don't slip and plug in and out with ease. Both carry the Anker logo on them. Because of the length, two little Velcro straps are provided to help with the cord management – love it! I can’t say I’ve noticed a change in charging speed because I mostly fully charge my phone overnight and charging during mid-day use is hard to gauge.
The size of the connectors is just right! They’re large enough to get a good grip on, yet small enough to fit most accessories. It fits into my slim phone case and my GF’s rugged SUPCASE – both are iPhone 6. I’ve tried other cables before that wouldn’t fit through the case because the plug was too big. This one fits right in.
It came nicely packaged with a little “Happy” or “Not Happy” card. If happy they ask you to spread the word. If not happy, their contact info (phone, email & website) is right there. To me this just shows that they care about their customers. Being very competitively priced at under $20 for 10-ft. is a definite bonus to everything else. So far I’m very happy with this charging cable and hope to be exposed to more of their products in the future. If you found my review helpful, please click the [YES] button below.
