AFTER 1 YEAR
7 August 2018
I bought this product on 31st August 2017, meaning it's almost been a year and I got the 6 feet Dark Grey model.
Let me firstly say that I'm giving this product a 3 star rating just because we don't get the option to rate a product 2.5 stars on Amazon. And also because this product could stay alive for almost an year, which is a lot these days.
Though the delivery of the product from Amazon was blazing, I would like to specifically mention that this is an Amazon Basics product.
It's served me very very well for way over 11 months and trust me when I say that I use all my products with utmost safety. I've charged multiple Apple products with this cable and the charging speed is what they promise it to be.
I don't know if it's the case with every Apple product cable or just for iPhones but they have a specific period of doing well after which they start to act weird. The connected/disconnected symbol keeps going on and off after one point.
That basically is the sign for the customer to understand that it's about time to get yourself a new charging cable.
Until you procrastinate in getting that new cable, the performance of this cable keeps going down where you'll slowly have to start handling this cable extra carefully while putting your phone for charge, you have to connect the phone, wait till you see the charging is on and then slowly place it down on the table and make sure it's still charging.
Another tiring thing that you may have to do is keep checking on it every 30 mins and see if it's charging at all, or if the speed of the charging is okay etc etc.
Tip: When the procrastination period is on, make sure you switch the side of the cable, I mean reverse it and use for longer usage periods. I've done it, I'm sure you all should too.
Well it's my time to get that new cable for my phone.
