My family is actually an all-Apple household, but we have mophie juice pack cases for our iPhones, so we need both Lightning and microUSB cables for charging our various devices.  These F-Color cables would work great in my gear bag and even for my nightstand charger, because it combines both formats into one cable.  The F-Color cable is even Apple MFi-certified, so you don’t have to worry about it causing problems with your iOS devices.   The cable is 3.3 feet long, and it’s wrapped with a braided cover that prevents tangling.  The F-Color cable is a premium USB 2.0 Type A to Micro-B with aluminum connector for high speed charging and fast data transmission.  There’s an “original connector from Apple” Lightning adaptor that’s permanently attached to the microUSB end so you don’t have to worry about losing it.  It’s available with gold, gray, or silver connectors to coordinate with iPhone colors.  Each F-Color Apple MFi-Certified cable is $16.99 at Amazon.

  2. I’ve started to steer clear of non-Apple cords as I’ve gotten too many charging problems and times when the phone never shows up in iTunes.

    I think that the logo “Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad” will probably make this cord less likely to create error messages when used to charge. And will make it easier to sync Apple products.
