great cord; improvement over original IPhone 4S charger cord
Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2018
It is, as other reviewers have stated, a bit "heftier" or "beefier" than the original manufacturer charging cord. Words super on the IPhone 4S. Charges faster than original. Specifically, the "weak" connection to the phone (where manufacturer's cord first break always occurs) is stronger and better made. The cord itself is about 1 mm wider than original; just enough to be stronger yet flexible. Where it connects to wall charger is the next weakness of original; as with where it connects to the phone, here too the cord is slightly "beefier" and I feel very confident that the wire will not break through the insulating exterior like the original. With that said, my charger (still the original but with lots of electrical tape at both ends) is 7 years old and still does charge the phone but my confidence in it has been increasingly questionable in the last year or so. Now i can relax and know my charger is good for a long time thanks to Amazon Basics Apple IPhone replacement charging cord. I only have an IPhone 4S - so don't know if works on other models, but other reviewers have commented regarding this. Thanks Amazon Basics! Great cord at very reasonable price. Will update review after a year of use!
