    Thanks for sharing. Maybe more durable in comparison to the official ones.

    Seriously.

    I dont use power banks (if I needed to on a daily basis I's likely be looking for a different phone) so this isn't useful for me.

    Wish they offered a full size version. I'm so tired of my apple cables deteriorating

    Tip of the Lightning plug is too wide to fit in an iPhone in a case.

    Depends on which case. What case are you using. It works with my UAG case.

    Hello, I'm Brooks from PhoneRumble and dCables, the Creator on the Bendy Kickstarter.

    Thanks @zmanbaseball2!

    @boltjames: when we shot the video for the Kickstarter one of the video crew had a Lifeproof case and the Bendy cable fit into that case. The connector housing is 5.8mm tall and 10.1mm wide.

    Thanks for all the support. I see we had 16 backers from this forum yesterday.

    If any one has any questions I'll be happy to answer.

    Hey Brooks,
    Any plans to make a longer cable? I love the design, but I don't have a use for a short cable.

    Keep up the good work!

    Is that Kickstarter's fault?

    Hey TWO2SEVEN,

    We're considering it and might look at a stretch goal for something around 12 inches. The issue is it's a very time consuming process to heat the silicone coating and still meet Apple's very strict guidelines for stuff like resistance.

    By the way, please don't score too many points on my Horns this weekend. :cool:

    ----------

    I've talked with those buys in private message and they say their cables will be MFI certified. Those are nice looking cables if you prefer or need longer ones. We know many people do.

    @rocknbloggger...THANKS a ton for the support.

    They look just like every braided iPhone cable out right now: https://www.google.com/search?q=thr...=1280&bih=909#tbm=isch&q=braided+iphone+cable. The only thing special about those is that they are USB reversible. Not worth $25 IMO.
