Here is what Apple say about checking for genuine cables and adapters

Personally I have bought iPhone 30 pin cables from studentcomputers in the past and they have been genuine. I wouldn't buy poundland stuff though as that is definitely fake and you run the risk of damaging your device or worse.

It's not genuine if its £5!

no need to buy an OFFICIAL Apple cable, a CERTIFIED product is just as good and much cheaper. i bought an [Apple MFI Certified] aLLreli® Lightning to USB Data Sync Charging Cable 3M for £7.50 (usually £15), they give a Lifetime warrantyas standard which Apple do not

Poundland don't sell fakes and claiming that they do could land you with a libel action. What they sell are non-Apple, non-MFI certified cables that in my experience work as claimed.

You are quite right John the Poundland ones are non-genuine and not fake.

Funny how whenever anyone posts a genuine (cheaper) iPhone product, someone immediately pipes up about Poundland's cr*p. You need to use a MFi product if you want to avoid damaging your iPhone in the long-run. I used a non-cerified cable with my iPad Mini almost exclusively and the battery ended up swelling up, causing a rainbow effect on my screen. Yes, *might* not have been the cheap cable but the 'coincidence' is enough for me to think it's worth investing in at least a certified cable, even if not an Apple one. If these are genuine then this is a great price as these adapters can be used with Blackberry Playbook chargers to give you a nice long cable.

'Non-certified' even.
