Received this on the 4th and it worked good till two days ago. It stopped working in car for apple carplay. Now tonight, it has stopped charging phone. Nothing visually wrong with it. I know they back their products and I have not reached out to them since its such a waste of time shipping back and waiting for replacement Bahhh.
I have to change my previous 5 star to 1 since the cable I bought 21 December just stop working for mi a couple of days ago. I just use this in my nightstand at night, no "heavy" use whatsoever. For that price I would've expected to last at least a year. Disappointed.
Best charger I have owned. I have bought countless cheap and expensive chargers. Why? Because I keep one in my car, one in every place I frequently visit or work at. I have recently upgraded all my chargers to this one. It may have cost me a bit more to do so. However that cost is extremely valuable.
It is too early to tell if this is a 10 out of 10. I have high standards. But with the quick shipping to my doorstep, the excellent packaging and presentation, the solid texture and feel of each of the components, and smooth charging operations which I am using as I write this review, I am going to give this a 5 out of 5. I got two cords. They fit perfectly in the travel case. By the way the case is very good looking and VERY COMPACT (the product photos are deceiving). Amazing!
Junk cables, very slow charging and device looses charge while using the iPhone or iPad. I bought 2 of the 3ft, 2 of the 6ft and 2 of the 10ft. None work anywhere close to advertised. I own several anker products a due to the past quality of their products I didn’t have a problem paying a higher price for higher quality cables. These fail miserably, DO NOT BUY. They must have had a bad run of cables because what I received are junk. I won’t be buying anker cables again. I hope they aren’t having these same problems with other products.
Cable worked great for around 3 weeks. They are build very solid. However, I can't charge my phone using the cable as of yesterday. I plugged in my phone overnight to charge as usual. The next day, my phone was actually discharged around 6-7%, despite my phone indicating that it is charging. Odd. I changed the cable and it started charging immediately. I let the phone charge up, then started troubleshooting the Anker cable. Tried 3 other power sources (1 18W apple power adapter, 1 apple iPhone adapter, and a MacBook Pro) and my phone will not charge with this cable. In fact, it seems to discharge my phone (~1% every 10 minutes). It hasn't even been a month since I've received the cable so I'm pretty disappointed.
I have bought a lot of Anker cables and plugs. Unfortunately two of the 2 metre cables have failed. However, Anker replaced them quickly. There is a serial number on every cable on a tiny silver strip which should not be removed. Giving the serial number, download of the order number and an explanation to the customer support email is all that is required. No need to post the broken ones back. Pretty impressive service.
I have always loved anker products and Owned several Powerline II for almost a year now. Never had issues with them and they still are going strong and sturdy. I decided to upgrade with the Powerline+ II as my daily driver. However after just using it for 2 weeks only next to my bed stand I started having issues as the charging would automatically stop and start again. Now its very inconsistent as charging turns on and off again randomly. This is not what I expected from Anker as I bought them depending on their quality and reliability.
I’ve come to like and trust anker over the last couple of years. Their products seem to be well made and they really last. This powerline 2 cable appears to be a very high quality lead, even more so than the standard ones I’ve bought before - most of which still work now. I’d recommend you spend the extra cash and buy this. Even if you are very heavy handed, their customer service is excellent and they’ll replace your lead if it breaks.
I’m delighted with my two charging cables , Apple cables covering had perished and split, so I was on the hunt for a replacement. As the old cables were a tad short for my needs I thought I could do with a longer one . These cables are brill, long, well made . Only had them a short time so can’t comment on their longevity. The up side is they come with a semi rigid zipped pouch, and a velcro loop , so you can curl the cable up fasten it with the velcro and and have the ends as long as you need , in a neat little package . As for chargability , I can’t see any difference in the time it takes to charge devices , it may be even a little faster. Yes really pleased up to now
I always use Anker as my tech go to brand if I ever need anything new and again this hasn’t disappointed. A strong, sturdy braided cable and a new design meaning a more stable connection point for both the USB and Lightening connection end. I had to replace my old anker one as I’d had it for so long that it had bent and manipulated to the point it wouldn’t charge my phone, but considering the one supplied with the phone I bought lasted all of 6 months and this one lasted at least 5 times longer says a lot for the build quality of the products so I had no hesitation in buying Anker as a replacement. Can’t recommend Anker enough for their products, I’ll keep buying them brand even if there is a slightly cheaper alternative available.
At this point in time it's the best quality cable I've ever owned from multiple different brands. The only small gripe is the lightning connector can feel a little loose compared to others. And Yes, I have cleaned my lightning port on the phone!
This feedback is for the 1.8 meter long cables that I bought. The build quality of this cable is great. I've used it to charge all the iPhones in my household (5, 6, 6S and 8) as well as all the iPads (Pro, Mini) and Apple TV remotes with no issues whatsoever. It even solved some connection issues I was experiencing with other cables and my very old back-up iPhone 5, thanks to Anker's snug and precise fit into its worn-out socket. The case the cable comes in proved to be very handy as well. I'm using it to carry all the other cables I had inside my travel suitcase.
Well what can I say. I love these Anker cables.
Fantastic Hard Wearing I keep buying more of them all the time and recommend them to all my friends and family as in my opinion Anker hands down make the best quality cables that last the longest and I have tied many different brands and literally nothing comes close! Hands down always excellent to deal with and Anker customer service is second to none! if you have the slightest issues they will work with you to get it sorted even if it means providing you with a different product!
I SWEAR BY THESES CABLES you can’t get better then this iv been using anker cables and other products for years and I can swear down they are great. Anyone I know I let them know about this company if they are looking for cables.
I recently purchased this same item from a retailer who charged me £7 more and didn't provide the neat carrying wallet/case that came with this one through Amazon. This Anker lead is a quality product. You need look nowhere else.
I bought this on a friends’ recommendation to use in my car as the original apple cables didn’t seem to be lasting long. It arrived quickly but immediately wasn’t quite right. Every now and then CarPlay was disconnection and at first I thought it was my phone. I was in the process of changing phones so just put it down to a damaged/worn lightning connector on my old phone but turned out to be exactly the same with the new phone. Have since replaced with a genuine apple cable again and it works 100% of the time again. Disappointing considering I had high hopes.
These cables are the best cables at first because they charge well and easy to spot when you misplace them!
Ladekabel von Appel haben 2 Punkte die mich stören:
After ruining my last set of charger cables (walking with battery pack mostly) I decided to get a sturdy cable. I found these but had to order them from the UK since they are not available in the Netherlands but it is worth the trouble. Cables look extremely solid and will probably last at least twice as a regular cable, already making them worth the price.
