Is this one of those deals that is available inside now depending on availability or between 20-26 Aug by when you have forgotten about it....

No aldi in NI

Just got a car charger and a lead for £5 each at tesco, check for old stock,

When is this due onsale, please?

On sale now?

Do these cables work ok? With my 5S I had problems with any cable unused that wasn't bought from Apple, have had to resort to paying £15-25 for each one I need. Haven't tried any third party ones with my iPhone 6 yet

Cant ever have enough chargers.

amazon.co.uk/gp/…age is a good, durable alternative at £5.78

Much more durable than the super-expensive (and completely rubbish) Apple cable.

Why don't these things generally cost a similar amount to micro USB cables? And if Apple has such a good reputation for design, why do their cables have lifespans that can be measured in weeks?

Or get them from pound world. They work fine and last just as long.

​yup, it's not like there's any difference or any risk of fire, electrocution or phone damage.

Never had a problem with Apple cables since they moved to lightning connectors. Got plenty of dead dock connector style ones though and a good mix of dead and alive third party lightning and micro USB cables.
But everyone's use is a little different.

Amazon basic has lightening charger around £6.99 apple certified and very durable, excellent quality. I bought one 7-8 months ago and is still going. shouldn't pay more than £7-8.00 a decent charger

I agree with you. Had a few from poundland some did not work and some died in a few weeks. I have got some from Amazon anker branded mfi certified and are spot on so far. Paid £7.99 each for them

Coming from an iPhone repair background I would recommend against using non genuine apple chargers. They don't regulate the voltage properly and will eventually lead to an IC U2 repair which are expensive enough to bin your iphone

was looking for 'another' iPhone 5 charger and came across this with decent reviews. Although only a 1m in length and on sale atm.

Got one today, pleased with it having a 3 year warranty. the pound shop ones I have bought recently have barely lasted a couple of weeks. Got a nice blue one so will always know which one is the Aldi one.

As previously implied, the amazing 3 year warranty won't cover your £500 phone, just your £5 charger...

Thanks for this. Got through 3 lightning cables from Apple so far.

Don't talk such rubbish. This is an mfi certified cable and will not damage your phone. I agree that the USB charger needs to be well regulated but there's plenty of good quality chargers to choose from without going for the genuine one.

You're mis-treating your cables then. I've still got my original one that came with my iPhone 5 on the day it was released - getting on for 3 years old now. If you don't stretch the cables and remove it by pulling the connector and not the cable they will come to no harm.

On another note, these have been in Aldi for nearly a week now and are probably sold out.

​be fair he might not of seen mifi certified but rest he said and especially if it didn't have mifi is actually quite true. even ones from tesco got a message on box now saying if u use these cables your warranty for your device is invalid (due to complaints) . in relation to this deal especially cause it is mifi it is good

Are there any decent non-genuine cables out there that don't throw an error saying that they're not certified when plugging into the phone?

Im not talking rubbish at all, giving sound advice but I really don't care who does or doesn't take it as I get paid for repairing phones. I also had no idea it was an mfi certified charger, 1 in 3 people that drop their iphones into me for repairs use cheap rubbish purchased from ebay for 99p
