    Are they different quality lightning cables out there? Will there be any difference in performance between Apple Lightning to USB Cable, AmazonBasics USB A to Lightning Cable and a cheap chinese lightning cable? Ignore the authentication part and please post your thoughts only on charging time and the data transfer speeds when connected to a computer.

    A couple of the knockoffs I have charge the phone extremely slower than my OEM cable.

    I'm looking for a great extra cable at an reasonable price.

    Lightning cable quality

    There is no difference in performance between lightning cables. The few thing that set them apart is the thickness of cable, quality of construction and the size of the lightning tip to fit various cases. I have this one and I think it is the best one because of the quality of construction and the 6ft length of cable:

    The problem with the amazon cables is that it doesn't fit any of my cases. I just reinforce my cables with sugru.
