Don't buy. Third party knockoffs don't work yet.

Not official Apple cables.
Not sure if or when they will ship out either.
Lets see if it was $6 well spend or not:)
I tend to agree with you on the side of not being official Apple cables. If they were, I'd think that would be part of the item description. Fine print states "Delivery Time 10-15 Business Days". The return policy has me a little uneasy. "No returns unless damaged or defective" ... They may work, but after everything I've read, I think I'm going to buy genuine Apple cables this time. Don't quite understand the $60 value either. It's $38 dollars for two from Apple.

This looks like a sales pitch thread...:mad:
I kno it looks scammy but I'm serious. I saw this on a website spoofe that has daily deals & this was on there today. I need lighting cables but do you think these r legit?? Doesn't say oem, & I've never bought from savelogolgy. Just looking for your opinions

L.A.
Just in case this thread is real and not a SEO spam thread:

No, I would NOT trust any chords/adaptors/etc other than Apple's right now. Study up on the chip Apple uses. Not only could a cheapo chord not work.. it might just screw up your phone. Not worth the risk for a $20 Apple chord.

I didn't pull the trigger either. I was about to but since it doesn't say oem I'm not gonna budge.

Saveology is a legit site, i've bought from them before no problems (its just like any other deal website), but as posters have said this is probably 3rd party cables and wouldnt trust it yet.

I wouldn't waste your time with these. BTW, Apple stores just received shipments of the cables. A couple days ago (at least in the Bay Area), the cables were listed to arrive October 22, but they're in stock as of now.
