Juicies+ produces anodised aluminium and tangle free woven cable with Lightning connector (MFi certified) or Micro USB connector.
In my previous post about Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable, I mentioned that it is not available in stores because it is exclusively available at Apple Online Store (Singapore). I was somewhat wrong, apparently you can get a similar Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable in stores.
However, instead of the four colors which is sold online, there are only two colors in stores which is black and white. I saw it in Funan’s Challenger and is retailing for S$22. You will need to take note of the length of the cable indicated on the box because there are a few lengths available. Apparently, the 6″ (15cm) is the hardest to find. I only saw one box left in that store while other lengths have a few boxes left.
Just Mobile AluCable Mini is a short (4″/10cm) USB to Lightning cable that is finished in aluminium. I always wanted to get it and it is on my Amazon’s wishlist for a good period of time. However the shipping cost is just not worth it (doesn’t qualify for free shipping to Singapore).
The AluCable Mini is 5cm shorter than the Belkin 6″/15cm Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable and that makes it the shortest good quality Lightning to USB cable that I owned after Kero – Lightning Nomad Cable.
When I first bought the Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector in October last year, my main complain with the cable is that the base of the Lightning head is too wide and it will not fit some cases like the Apple iPhone 5s Case or the Power Support – Air Jacket Set for iPhone 5/5s.
Apparently, Innergie refreshed the cable quietly and this time round, the base of the Lightning head is much slimmer and there is a slight allowance right below the lightning connector to allow it to fit most if not all iPhone 5/5s cases.
I bought a few cheap China imitation USB to Lighting cable from DealExtreme and the quality is really horrible especially when it comes to fitting the Lightning end to your iPhone. After that, I told myself I will never get any cheap Lightning cable anymore.
The Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable is the shortest USB to Lightning cable that I can find that is of good quality. Apparently, it seems to be an Apple exclusive and I can only get it from the Apple Online Store in Singapore. I can’t even find the cable being listed on the official Belkin Singapore website.
It retails for S$39 and is one meter in length. It weighs 35g and you can choose from two colors (black or white).
Bought the Griffin Retractable USB Charge Cable with Lightning Connector from BestBuy‘s 5th Ave store for US$24.99 and after a 8.875% tax, it cost US$27.21 (S$34.62).
I always wanted a good quality retractable lightning cable just for the fun and “less messiness” of it. This Griffin retractable lightning cable measures 10cm in length, 4cm in width, 1cm in thickness and weights 35g! The total length of the lightning cable when it is fully unwind is about 0.7m.
Apple’s first Lightning to USB Cable was 1 meter in length when it was first launched in September 2012.
In February 2013, Apple released a shorter variant of it which halved that length and again in September 2013, Apple released a longer variant of it which is twice the length.
Got the Griffin Coiled USB-to-Lightning Cable from Challenger for S$39 (S$31.20 after a 20% member’s discount) for use in the car. I always have the thought that coiled cables are meant to be used in cars, am I the only one who thinks like this?
When it is coiled, it is 13″ (~33cm) (measured by me) and when it is fully stretched, it is about 4ft (120cm) (according to the specification printed on the box).
Been waiting for the Innergie MagiCable Duo Lightning Connector for a long time, ever since Apple announced the Lightning cable. After more than a year, Innergie finally released it!
I bought it at Wheelock Place’s EpiCentre for S$49. The only reason I bought it is to blog about it, otherwise I see no reason to get this overpriced cable. Seriously, S$49 for a cable that has just both Micro USB and Lightning connection? Amazon is selling it for US$30, which is slightly cheaper.
