The cable display is neat. You can actually see the electricity flowing through the cable when your device is charging. Everyone loved watching the display. The bad news is 1) the end with the lightning connector is large and will not work with most cases, and 2) I was unable to use my iPhone and iPad while connected. The screens became unresponsive while connected.
Purchased this on a whim, for the novelty value. Item arrived quickly, but I discovered I can't use it because the shroud at the Lightning plug is too wide to be used with my iPad's "Lifeproof" protective case.
If your device has any constrictions surrounding the Lightning jack, this may not work for you.
Not worth the trouble to send it back, nor to use the Dremmel tool to try to make it fit.
I -did- connect the USB end, just to see the cable light up. Pretty. Nerdy, too.
Flashy USB data transfer and charging cable for iPhone --- is really cool and works great. When it stops flashing ... it's done charging! One would probably not want this next to a night stand as it would keep you awake, but watching the reflection off the ceiling is pretty neat, however.
See it charge!Apple's newest mobile operating system, iOS7, brings great new features and a beautiful design but unfortunately it has also rendered many 3rd party Lightning accessories useless. Apple's Made For iPhone program certifies that accessories are safe to charge and sync your Apple devices. Each Lightning accessory even has a tiny chip that certifies the accessory as MFi. This charge & sync cable is MFI certified and actually lights up as it charges! It is the most unique charger available for all types of mobile devices. The MFI Certified Lightning LED Cable features an amazing blue electro-luminescent light that runs throughout the entire cable as it charges. The lights inside this cable will actually speed up, slow down and then eventually shut off when charging is complete. Save energy and actually know when your device has a full charge! When the lights are no longer "streaming" your device is fully charged. It's that simple! This cable charge/sync cable is an efficient and stylish way to charge and sync your devices. Make an ordinary countertop, desktop or car interior come alive as you charge your device. No need to wind up or hide your charging cable anymore! This is the one cable that you will want to leave out for everyone to see!
