Leave it to the iPhone/iOS that warns you that the cable isn't "good enough" for it.

I just got a lenmar meridian for my 5S, the charging works, but it won't sync to the computer via the micro USB. Their cable and battery is MFI approved so I don't get what the problem is.

The problem is that Apple wants you to buy their $35 charger, and you didn't.

The three articles you posted all link back to the same article as the source.
And it's wrong.
I'm sorry but it sure doesn't sound like you have either a Lightning port device or a 3rd-party cable so how about you yield to the people who do have both?

The article is wrong.
I have 3rd-party Lightning cables and they do work just fine with my iOS 7 device.
If anyone is genuinely having a problem I think the most likely answer is that their 3rd-party cable is unreliable.

Ah, so because your cable happens to work, everyone that's saying their cables aren't working, are wrong.

Makes total sense.

We spend a solid amount of money on iDevices; I don't even want to use 3rd party cable/charger anymore. I did in the past; some of them got hot like hell; even more compared to the original one I use for my iPad. I just feel more confident without 3rd party.
Remember the story of exploding 3rd party charger killing a person ... It not coming from nowhere.

Incorrect. Apple wants you to purchase AUTHORIZED lightning cables. Not all authorized cables are $35. There are plenty in the $10 - $20 price range that are not made by Apple but are authorized through Apple's MFi program.

Found solution

I had issue with a splitter I had got but ordered the cable below and works like a charm with no errors.
