Do you use third party charging cables?

We have all been there your original Apple charging cable stops working for whatever reason. So, you run out to get a replacement. Do you buy a third party cable or do you buy an Apple cable? I've bought some third party cables that worked just fine.

I have a few but I bought them all at the Apple Store, so I'm confident they're good.

Not sure when they released it, but I’ve had mine for about 6-8 months. It’s on their website:

The stupid forum software won’t let me post the link - says it’s spam. #iMoreFail

I bought one about 6 months ago but its still a bit shorter than I'd like LOL

Still on my original cables here. Use them primarily for charging (so I plug them in like once every night), and they still seem as good as the day I got them. With some care, they should be able to last the full 2 years. :)

I use both actually. I like to have them in most rooms of the house and car and work and summer place. Sigh I know I have problems

They'll definitely last that long. I'm just an accessory junkie & I want a different cable in every room, for work & in each vehicle LOL

What I need is a car charger that allows simultaneous charging for my iPhone and my work issued Note 2.

Yup, thank you, that's EXACTLY what I need. I actually had one but the lighting piece came loose. Do I never to make sure I charge while I'm getting ready in the morning.
