Poor quality - will not charge an iPad
30 January 2019
Cables are very low quality - will not properly charge an iPad. I have an old mophie 3m USB to lightning cable which was very expensive from memory but works fine although is now fraying badly and wanted a replacement. Saw these 3m cables and price was incredibly cheap for the pack of 3 x 3m cables, but now I've tried them, that cheap price is obviously for a reason. For long cables to work properly they need to be good quality otherwise the transmission degrades as the cable gets longer. When I plugged my iPad in to charge with these cables, the power getting through was obviously so degraded my iPad recognised something was plugged in, but then immediately said 'Not charging' because the transmitted power was too low (it was sufficient for an iPhone however, but not the more demanding iPad). My old fraying cable works fine for the time being, so I'll keep looking and return this cheap junk as it was the iPad I wanted it for.
