    We have six Apple products in our home that use the “Lightning” connector. Between losing them, putting them in cars and brief cases etc, I had to order some extras. The Apple branded cords seemed awfully expensive. There were several cords offered that were very inexpensive so I ordered a bunch of them. These cheap cords lasted anywhere from a few days to a month before breaking. I was about to order some Apple brand cords when I came upon these Poweron cords. They are a little pricier than the really cheap ones but are still much cheaper than the Apple brand Lightning cords.

    I’ve been subjecting these cords to the usual abuse for a few months now and have not had a failure yet. They do have a 90 day warranty, which is much better than the other ones I was buying. I would recommend these cords to anyone with Apple Ipad, Ipod, Iphone, etc.

    That would be worth some bucks nowadays if they were solid copper.

    Right, because me saying that the majority of my experiences dealing with cops were positive means otherwise?
