Just tried on my way home on my 5s and worked fine. Charge seemed quite quick too. Had the pound land ones but didn't last long. Thought this was worth a try at the price

Hmmm will have to try!! Thanks op! Heat added

I bought one a few weeks ago and it broke within a week. You need to remove the cable from the phone VERY carefully

Be warned that IOS7 prevents you from using unofficial lightening-charging cables (I found out the hard way). Jail remaking IOS7 might work (don't think you can downgrade to IOS6 either)

I bought the USB cable from this range for use with my iPhone 5 running iOS 7. Unfortunately it didn't work. I just got the message saying it's a non certified product, and my phone didn't charge. Sainsbury's did give me a refund though.

Non genuine chargers which are 99p on eBay anyway. £14.99 what a con. Genuine from apple shop are £15

Bought this when it was £7 and does NOT work with iphone 5s with ios 7 so had to take it back.

I have not had this problem on iOS7 (iPhone 5) and i tried before i jailbroke. But why would you not wanna jailbreak your phone anyway lol

I use this on my 5s and it works fine

Where did you bring it

Oh, you brought it back, I see

Theirs a jailbreak app out now to enable all leads the apple crooks have deemed non standard!

Checked on 5s jail broken and 5 unjailbroken .. Both work fine on Ios 7.0.4

Almost bought this for £5 at sainsburys yesterday. Hopefully they're still on the shelf in my local tomorrow. As for cheap cables, 3 out of 4 have worked for me on iPhone 5 but they all break easily

Thanks OP, bought 2 in case one doesn't work. Sounds like pot luck whether it will work or not

Poundshop ones work fine

For info, the Sainsburys at Alder Hills (Dorset) still has these priced at £7.49 (and i asked a guy to check). Will try a diff Sainsburys store but good deal if can get one

Sainsburys Arnold Nottingham still on shelf at £7.49, asked for it to be checked and scanning still at £7.49

Bagged a couple thanks op
Workers on my 5 with7.0.3

Do you know the workaround for this ?

It's simply plug in, await warning on iphone, dismiss warning, unplug cable & plug back in.

Had my Chinese USB cable since the week after the 5 release & still working fine on the 5s.

They have them in stock at my local in oldbury but they are 7.49. Even took it to the till hoping it would scan cheaper but had no joy lol
