Solid cable, almost identical to the original, great value!
This item arrived neatly coiled and tied, sealed in an attractively printed retail box – it would look great as a gift, and details all compatible devices etc. It’s a small box, so even in the Amazon sleeve, it fit easily through the letter box. Small box = less packaging = environmentally friendly too!
The connectors at each end were protected from scratching by thin cellophane wrapping, they are securely moulded to the cable and won’t pull or fall off. The cable is slightly thinner than the original Apple one, and maybe slightly less flexible. Unfortunately, it’s also desirable to cats, as fresh teeth marks after less than an hour of use can testify!
