    There are many third party lightning cables on the Market today in many lengths most work flawlessly others display the "this accessory is not supported by this device" message that you need to tap away.

    Never the less I use a Ten Foot Fettuccine charging cable

    What do you use??

    The RocketFish branded ones from Best Buy have worked flawlessly for me. I prefer those. I also have two from Belkin and those are excellent as well.

    I hear a lot about the AmazonBasics Lightning cable getting good reviews but never tried them myself.

    I bought a few of the ones from the AT&T store which work great. They seem sturdier and are a little longer than the apple ones. I purchased black ones but they also come in different colors.

    I allowed one of my sons to use my lightning cable that came with my iPhone 5 and the next thing I knew, it was shorting out. I replaced it with a $5.00 lightning cable that I purchased from a store called, "Five Below". It works great and I am not sharing it with anyone so I shouldn't need a replacement anytime soon.

    Hi Kataran I saw this when you first posted and didn't have time to respond. My first thought was OMG how good does fettuccine sound right now!!! Hahahaha ... It was a late work night however I do think I could eat fettuccine anytime By the wayI do really like the flat cables. My earbuds have them and they are sooo nice!
    I wanted to respond to this topic. I'm sure there are less than stellar 3rd party lightning cables out there somewhere but as far as I'm concerned just because the manufacture didn't pay apple for the identifying chip so you don't get the pesky message that you are using 3rd party brand doesn't affect the ability to charge your phone at all. It's like the HDMI cables. How much do you want to spend?... they are all the same.
    I have noticed that the housing at the very end of the lightning cable can be a bit bulkier on some 3rd party cables causing it to not fit thru the opening in some cases.
    Now who is serving that fettuccine?

    I also have a 9 ft cable from RadioShack. Works good too. I think it's their store brand.

    A Mama told me about hitting up Fice Below. I got the unsupported msg. I took it back. With the blowing up phones I was paranoid. I didn't know it boiled down to a chip from Apple! Do you get the msg? I'm trying a 30 pin right now for my 3rd gen ipad. Housing fell off my cable I got from Walmart and the cables came out. I was given this device and it came with a Belkin, which the dang housing came off the plug too!

    I haven't had any problem whatsoever with the lightning cable and I have yet to get an "unsupported device" message....

    Anything with the Made for Apple logo on it should be good - unbranded stuff I'd steer away from.

    I have the Monoprice 6" MFI lightning cables. It works great with my Anker 40w charging station. I use it for travel - plug the charging station in to the wall, and connect my lightning devices without a maze of wires.

    I just got these:
    Amazon.com: Incipio Lightning Charger/Sync Cable - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories
    They come in like 10 different colors, but I wanted black. I do not like Apples white cables (stupid I know). Got two one for car and one for office.
