I carry this with my powerbank and it has been great to use when your household has different devices requiring different power tips. We tried that...tips that fit onto a micro- or mini- USB, but they would easily get lost or the connection wore out, power wasn't getting to the power tip.
I expected the iPad Air to not charge via this non-Apple cable, but the iPhone 5 is not as picky. Nevertheless, this cable will not charge the iPhone 5. :-( I love the 3-connector idea, BUT IT MUST FUNCTION!
I will be returning the numerous cables I bought.
