Packing changes but product remains good. One cable stopped charging after 9 months, got replacement
Reviewed in India on 30 October 2018
I bought one in lightning deal around 2-3 months ago for 130/- (August 2018). It is fast charging, strong, pretty long and works well. That time it came in nice case inside with company card (one photo is attached, one on the left is what I received now and the one on right was received 2-3 months ago).
Based on that experience I bought three more during this sale in October (2018). Those three were in different box from the previous one and cables were just put in it box without any casing, card etc. It appears to me that these cables were specifically made for this sale to be sold cheaply without any proper packing.
Update 1st May, 2019 - First cable I had bought has stopped charging after more than 9 months of usage. It is ok time for a USB cable to last but I am still disappointed.
Was hoping for it to last more as it has 2 years warranty. I have registered a complaint to claim the warranty on boat website. Had to download Amazon invoice and upload on boat lifestyle website. Let's see if I get a replacement.
Update 18th May, 2019 - Got a new replacement cable today, free of cost. This time a card was there in the box. Old cable was picked up within 2 days of the complaint and a new cable delivered at home within 18 days. Have attached the picture of it. Boat has good after sale service as well.
Update 25 Oct, 2020 - I have bought this black cable 8 times so far. This time I bought a couple more for under 100 each. The better packing and card is there this time (Picture attached). Most of the old ones are still working even though connector does get loose after a year or so but it happens with most cables.
I have bought 3 colored ones too (picture attached). All are packed well. Build quality seems to be similar but these are a bit thinner than black one. I have started using blue one, let's see if performance and durability is the same as black one.
