Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joe About the only good things I can say are that the price was right and the cord is nice and long. Beyond that, it is flimsy, and hard to insert into my iPad. Not very well made, but ok for the price. I probably wouldn't buy it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Very good product
The basic Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad charging/syncing 30-pin to USB cable. Works just like it should: I charged a flat iPod and moved a Gig of files to it. Seems to be made well. The 6-foot length is very useful in my system where USB ports are in the back. I've paid more for Apple-branded cables that worked the same. I've paid less for no-name cables that were made cheap/bad. This is a very good product.
TIP: each connector has an iPod or USB symbol on one side, the CEtech logo on the other side, and they look a lot alike. Be careful; or put a sticker on the side that goes "up" in your system.
Small CON: the packaging is very tough plastic and cardboard. You will want a small sharp knife and a steady hand.
Variations: the same company offers a 3-foot version which may be handier on some systems, and a lighted version which confirms that charge-up is happening.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 A longer leash from the USB connector
Overall, the cable has a high quality feel and did everything I expect from these types of cables. A great addition to my device charging tools.
Successfully charged and sync'd my iPhone 4s and iPad 2.
Compared to an Apple OEM charging cable, this product had three noticeable differences (aside from length):
1) a higher insertion force is required for the 30 pin connector (the end that plugs into the Apple product),
2) the cable/cord itself is stiffer and wants to retain the coil shape.
3) the 30 pin connector has a stamped graphic on both sides, requiring me to look closely whenever I connect it. (The connector only works in one orientation.)
I don't consider any of these to be problems or defects, just differences.
The packaging was a challenge to open, the plastic is tightly bonded to the cardboard backer and did not want to surrender the product. The package has a clever feature on the back exposing the 30 pin connector. Nice but not necessary if you trust the claims of product compatibility on the front of package and you really can't verify product compatibility without connecting both ends of the cable to working products.

From the moment I walked into the store, I knew by the music and friendly attention that I was going to find what I needed. The product I was looking for was a 6 foot charging cable for my cell phone Quality of the product was great and it worked perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG A good cable at an excellent price
The Apple cables are really excellent, but they have one flaw- they taste good to cats. I really try and keep my cables out of reach of my cats, but every once in a while they get one, and when weakened the cable eventually fails.
This time it was the cable to my IPad, so I got this after-market cable and so far the cats have shown no interest. As a cable it performs flawlessly, and is less expensive than the Apple product. The only area that could be improved is the transition from the strain relief to the cable. Some cables have a flexible transition at this point. The old cable did not have one and lasted 3 years, so I expect this one will do at least as well.
Great product, unless you are a cat.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ldinnocenzo stopped working
I had this charger for less than 2 months. In the morning I charged my iPhone with it and it worked fine. That night, I plugged the same iPhone into it to charge, and nothing. Tried on another phone, nothing. All of a sudden, just stopped working.

This cable is more secure in my iPhone 4S charger port. It has no wobble in the USB port and fits firmly in the A/C adaptor. Very pleased with this cable. I see this lasting longer than the one that was provided by Verizon when we bought the phone. Thank you Home Depot for going the extra step to make sure it fits tight even with a defender cover protecting the hookup on the phone. Job well done
