50p hdmi cable or 50p ethernet cable and you guys are all "fill yer boots"
33p iphone cable "must be bad quality / don't want to hurt my pride and joy"
EH?

Buy one and find out for yourself ;)
haha. I have give or take a £1k Amp / £1k PC / £1k projector all held together with £1 HDMI cables and no problems for the last 2+ years.

If a £600 iproduct explodes due to a "cheap" cable then the issue is not with the cable its with the iproduct.

You know the £30 cables have chips in them so Apple can tell if you're using an "Authorised" cable and wont let your phone melt.

I too have very valuable equipment strung together with Poundland HDMI's and Cat5 Cables. They do not move. There is a very low likely hood of any damage due to breakage of the cable.

This 33p iPhone cable will be moved around a lot. It will be plugged in and unplugged regularly, coiled up and twisted here and there. It will not last. So your comparison of stationary cheap cables is totally invalid.. End of story...

These cables are for powering devices not swinging through trees. Take reasonable care and they'll outlast your device.
If they short and stop working great you have 2 more for your pound to use.

Who mentioned swinging through trees? I said "It will be plugged in and unplugged regularly, coiled up and twisted here and there" If you're going to quote me, at least be remotely close to the facts (_;)

If you have nothing factual to say it's probably best to say nothing. Here are some facts for you.

1) Cheap HDMI cables work (unless you unplug and re-plug often)
2) Cheap Cat5 cables work (unless you bend them alot as they are CCA)

Here's the important fact!

3) Cheap phone data cables do not last. See forums, see this string of comments. They are rubbish! All those people can't be wrong and only you right. lol

I rest my case once and for all. I'm off out to enjoy my Sunday ;)
Wow chill out.
Getting back to the point of this site. This is a great deal. If the cable only lasts 6 months you'll get year and a half usage for your pound. Stack that against the £15 official cable. Things look worse when you have to update to lightning cable at £45, ouch.

To coin a phrase "Think Different". Yes these cables are cheap and nasty and yes they will fail but they will save you a stack of cash!

Ansarch actually points out something far more useful. If you update your phones "SOFTWARE" it will stop you using certain cables that don't have the chip (aka pay the apple licencing fee) Thats far more concerning.

Please stop commenting.

HDMI is digital hence why it does not matter.

As for these. These are absolute rubbish. The genuine cables have 4 cables inside each with 16 stands of an alloy plated on the copper strands. These will only have 4-8 copper strands in each wire. Resulting in slower charging.

Also the the genuine cables are protected with an aluminum braided shielding which helps with data transfer and also strengthens the cable. The fakes will not have this and the ones that do will be covered in a thin film of foil.

Clearly you know nothing about this so please stop giving people bad advice.
The genuine cables can be bought for £3-5 each. Which will charge your phone faster, and will last so much longer than these. Avoid this product at all costs.

All my hdmi cables have only cost me a few quid each however this is certainly something you should spend a few quid extra on as it is worth it.

As for the "chip" and software update stopping them. That only happens on the first generation of counterfeit lightening cables not these cables.

Burning the house down and fires is nothing to do with the cable itself. Those people are misinformed.

Your missing one little big point......quality control on branded items is a lot stricter. They have staff over their overseeing their own products being made and to make sure quality control is done correctly.

For In situ charge cable these will be perfectly fine, however if you plan on hauling it about then a better quality one is recommended as the build quality and durability will be greater then that of these.

don't mean to butt in, but I've had these cheap cables before and I don't think its a matter if lasting 6 months therefore a bargain, these usually don't actually charge your device, or do very slowly making them unusable, so it may physically last 6 months, but will be useless in that time.

DONT DO IT - They charge - 2 times slower. They can break your phone and Apple have hinted that non-official chargers will no longer work with next months update. Thats why suppliers of these shoddy wires are getting rid!!

I remember reading on BBC news app a few weeks ago Apple were recalling official chargers (sold between October 2009 and September 2012) due to "may overheat and pose a safety risk"....which seemed a bit late to me? At least you know in advance with these ones :p
