Looks like these 3rd party lightning cables are good

    The hood
    Saw these posted here and also on slickdeals by someone with a discount code so I jumped in for 2. Ended up being like only $9 shipped. Definitley a slickdeal.
    Mine should be arriving any day, but it looks like some people already got there's and the reviews are awesome so far.

    Just wanted to give everybody the heads up on some non apple lightning to USB cables on the cheap if these passed you up thhe first round.

    Compared to reviews of other crap cables, these seem pretty dope.

    I'll post another first hand review of this cable when mine comes in hopefully by this weekend.

    Oh here is the coupon code if anybody missed it: LTNGCBLE
    And the code for the one with the car charger: LTNGBNDL

    Edit: The cables I got are almost identical except the plastic supports on both ends are noticeably thicker. I noticed 1 cable's lightning end was infact tight like others described, but the other cable was perfect just like an original cable so I guess it varies by batch. Though I am very happy with the cables.

    Why didn't you just post to that thread?

    Anyway, I bought one and tested it. It synced and charged on my PC just fine. The only issue I have with it is that it is a pretty tight fit. I kind of have to force it into the lightning port.
