    Hi guys

    Long story short I need a long (3m) cable to charge my 6S plus. I purchased a cheap one off eBay but it's coming up with that annoying error saying 3rd party chargers bla bla and it won't charge.

    Anyone purchased a long cable from eBay etc that actually works and doesn't come up with this error message on iOS 9?

    Best Buy sells a 10' Griffen that has worked well for me. Probably overpriced but it was available when I needed it.

    Another vote for Amazon basics! Great cables at a great price.

    Amazon Basics too. They're dirt cheap compared to Apple prices, and rarely have any problems with connectivity.

    Monoprice.com. I got 6 foot cables for $1.99 each on sale.

    Mediabridge 10 ft cable works fine for me. Amazon sells them.

    That sucks. I've bought all my cables, computer, home theatre and the like, from Monoprice with no issues. Was it one type of cable?

    I will say this for Monoprice: USB extension cables.

    Lightning cables, 3' mostly. Unraveling at the Lightning connector end.

    I have to agree with @lordofthereef here. I really do my best to keep cables in good shape. I've had Apples 3 foot $30 cables come apart on me. So if the 6 foot $2 Monoprice cables do it I can hardly be upset. They're MFi certified as well so they will work.
