    Will this make you more hesitant to buy knowing that it may not work?

    I already got enough cables. Just waiting on adapters but just wanted to pass along.

    I've known some people that have ruined their iPhone batteries by using cheap 3rd party chargers and cables.

    I know there's always cases like those you mention, even with original Apple charges, but I will not stop buying chepo car charges or cables just now, I've been using tons of those for many years on different devices and never had an issue.

    I've read about that. Thanks for the heads up though. I have up on trying to find a spare cable and ordered it off apples website. Now for a three week wait. I've never used third party cables except once, when I bought a extended cord made by griffin, and I had no issues with it. There is no where around here that has the cables in stock. I even drove an hour away to the closest apple store to me to get one and they were out of stock there too.

    I'm kind of concerned. I bought a 3rd party 30 pin to lightning adapter from ebay and now it says that it has been removed, but wait 10 days to see if they shipped it. Apparently the shipping dates are from 9/29 til 10/1 and it isn't here yet. I guess I'll be contacting ebay soon.

    May as well try and get it cancelled as the chances of the connector working is slim to none. There is quite a bit of tech in these new connectors and cables. Cheapo versions are going to be a ways down the line.

    No way I would use a third party cable or adapter. These have custom chips in them and are adaptive cables. No semiconductor manufacturer is going to reverse engineer these chips, and the company who makes them for Apple won't be selling to unlicensed sources...

    Not sure if this is legit or not but I thought I would post for those who might be interested. Thought Tippr was pretty reputable so maybe if it doesn't work they will refund without issue.
