Yeah yeah I know the D and R and the special electronics and so on. But my ipod lightning cable has split and is cactus, even though it is a stay at home charger. Fortunately I had already bough three replacement ones for easier charging of guest devices and they cost me $1 including delivery. Mind you out of 4 that I bought one was not accepted by the ipod but the other three are golden. I do not care what anyone says, but $10 would already be excessive imho.
