This has been a great cable, with a sturdy look and feel about it, but it didn't last more than about three months. I don't think this should take away from its five stars though. Its demise wasn't usual wear and tear, but a specific accident while an iPhone 6 was charging and a toddler got involved. The lightning end broke as shown in the picture attached. I hope it helps the next version. I wouldn't mind mailing the thing to Belkin if I knew where.

Broke in a surprising way
Good while it lasted!
The cable was working fine for almost two years but had frayed a little near the lightning connector. I didn't pay much attention to it until yesterday when I realised it no longer charged my iPhone... The cable apparently broke where the fraying appeared and no longer works. It was a good charger which lasted a while but I believe that it should have worked for a bit longer considering it is made of a braided fabric which should offer more protection.
Great look, short durability
I bought this charger because my other phone chargers would always fray and stop working no matter how hard I tried to keep them in good condition. This charger was great at first, I especially appreciated the length so I thought it was a great investment. But now, after a couple of months, and the same thing is occuring! The wire is exposed and once it's bent it's extremely hard to keep it straight to prevent the wire from poking out. Loved it at first but now I'm not sure if it was worth the price as it didn't last longer than others I have purchased.
Loved it until...
I thought this charger was amazing I've owned like 3 of them over the years, as I kept buying an extra. one for work, the car and home. Never had any issues nor had to replace any. And I've encouraged so many others buy them too. They're extremely Heavy duty and never had one issue with compatibility or ripping or fraying. However this is the first time it broke. Where the lightening part just completely came out of the end of the wire. Seemed like a defect. If it were five years from now and ur frayed or ripped through normal usage, I'd understand. Im very frustrated and surprised as I thought this company was really good quality :(
Doesn't last long
I bought this a few months ago. I paid extra money for this and today it no longer works and I have to buy a new cord. I get tired of replacement cords 2-3 times a year. Held up pretty good with minor fraying. Used this for my iPhone on my nightstand.
