I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of these cords. We have two iPhones and an iPad in our household. I need to keep a cord in my office and in my car besides the one at home. My daughter keeps one at home and one in her car and my son used the iPad. A lot of the cords break after a short time using them. These braided cords hold up much better. I tested all three of these as soon as I received them to make sure they worked and all worked properly. You need to have the printed side up and get a good connection. I have been using these cords for several weeks now with no problems. I need a longer cord for my house charger, but these are perfect for the car and office. I highly recommend these.
