CNN reported that a number of AmazonBasics products are prone to explode, catch on fire, or begin smoking, melting or causing electrical malfunctions, including our previous budget pick, the AmazonBasics Lightning to USB-A cable. We’ve investigated Amazon customer reviews of this cable and no longer recommend it due to the amount of reports related to fire, heat and melting.
I am using basic Apple cables delivered with my devices and I see no reason to pay extra $ for braided cable.I've read most of these "best" articles and online reviews always have different feedback.
Any recommendation from iPhone/iPad members here?
I got Dark Grey version of Lightning cable braided from AmazonBasics since Anker's similar version was out of stock and Apple stock cable was failing to detect iphone sometimes. But if you are in doubt, you can use 3utools genuine accessories feature to check if cable is genuine or not (if you are getting stock Apple 6ft cable).
The ones we have are a few years old, torn or have exposed wiring (safe to handle). Some cables don't charge, hence looking to replace with better durability.I am using basic Apple cables delivered with my devices and I see no reason to pay extra $ for braided cable.
