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).
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.
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.
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).
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.
