This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Most HUKDers are probably student prime members.
For the minority who are also Apple users, you can get this charge cable for £3.79 after discount. Which is automatically applied at checkout. You get 20% off, then an extra 15% off for being a student prime member.

Being 1.8 metres long, these are good for when your power socket is not as close as you would like. Or if you are in a hotel and the cables don't quite reach the bed.

I've been looking for a while and the best price for long Apple cables are around £6 for cheap cables from you know where. With reviews about being dangerous or not working. These are AmazonBasics, sold and shipped by Amazon, so you know you are in good hands if they fail.

You can choose from blue, red, grey or black for a few pennies extra, or you can get the white one for the deal price.

Nice deal, these maybe aren’t as good as originals but just as good as any other brands

purely for charging, they'll do fine. For data transfers I'd use the original cables that came with the phone.
Bear in mind that the Apple ones cost £29

I honestly can’t remember last time I used a cable for data transfer? Maybe iPhone 6 era..

I’ve never used a cable for this kind of thing.
It's the quickest way I've found to transfer 10-20gb of videos to it, but I'd love to hear other suggestions!

10gbps network to most modern iOS devices via a decent 5ghz Wi-fi works fast enough to worry about transferring via a physical cord . In fact I’ve never thought about it but it’s quite a good fall back using a cable if you’re away from your own setup - but then I just connect via plex or something.
These are much better cables than the originals, tough cable and reinforced ends

I would also think if it failed within a year Amazon probably wouldn't hesistate just to send you another one and tell you to chuck the faulty one in the bin!

Fast enough is still going to be 5 or 6 minutes slower when I'm loading my iPad up with shows/movies for a trip, and since I'll be at my pc to transfer the files anyway why wouldn't I simply take the several seconds to plug it in?

Plex is fine but relies on having WiFi when travelling, and even on transport that has WiFi it's rarely quick enough for even low quality 720p plex
