Good quality cables
Shame it's blue
These are awful for charging, they seem to take twice as long so we gave up on them in the end.

That's because they are capable of 1.7ish Amp throughput. Nowhere near the 2.4A capability of an ipad.
My Aukey & some of my Syncwire cables test in the region of 2.2 - 2.3 Amp

I've bought several replacement lightning cables, and my experience is that very cheap ones never seem to last. These Amazon ones seem to review well and I nearly bought some last time I bought more. However, in the end I went for Syncwire via e-bay. They seem generally regarded as amongst the best and for a 3 pack they cost about the same as this deal per cable. That's not me saying to avoid these Amazon ones and I've added some heat as this seems a good price for them.

I'm an electronics engineer and the one thing I would particularly highlight to anyone having iPhone charging issues is to carefully check how well an existing cable mates (fits) into the phone socket. It should go fully home (right up to the shoulders of the lightning connector) and should fit tightly with no wobble. If it doesn't fully mate like this then the issue may not be the cable but rather that there is crap in the phone socket! Over the years I've dug an amazing amount of compacted fluff out of friends/family iPhone sockets, especially older phones, and that has improved charging reliability no end! I tend to use a small interdental tool or a fine toothpick and a little meths (do not use anything metal/conductive). You need to be sensibly gentle but make sure any force you apply is to the far end of the socket, not on the internal side walls (where the contacts are). A magnifier and a good torch should show you whether the socket is clean.

Finally, if you really want a cable to last and to be reliable then never use the phone whilst charging it! Plug it in, put it down, charge it and then remove the cable. Nothing kills cables (or the internal sockets in the phone) quicker than constantly flexing them hard near their connectors!
