These were mentioned in an earlier thread, but were still $13.50. They are now at the $9.50 sale price.
I ordered one yesterday.

So are all Lightning cables of this quality USB 2?

Is there such a thing as a USB 3 lightning cable, or is there no current need for such?

Oh - and there's no reason for USB3, none of the iOS devices have USB2 ports.

I suppose that'll have to wait for 'Lightning II', or 'Apple's Revenge' when they shut out all of the cheap third party knockoffs.

In for three! My clients are always asking for a "spare"; on my last business trip, I started with four and came home with only one.

Thanks!!

I was going to order a couple more.

I just wish they were 6'. I ordered 9' from Amazon; it's just a little longer than I'd like.

I missed the original link, so thanks for the repost. I may order two to have in each car. I bought one at Best Buy a couple of month ago for full price, but I had some Reward bucks that were expiring.

Carm - how did you get .99 shipping? I'm getting quoted $3.59.

There was a gap in a discount freight range... 3 cables were less to ship than 2 smiling smiley
fixed...
99 cents covers 1 - but 2 not less than $2

thanks!

Thanks Larry. You could have also left it as-is and said the .99 shipping was a special for buying three. I would have probably added an extra just for that savings on shipping (the going broke by saving mind-set).

Order placed.

99 cent I only saw applying to 1 - weight cost jumps why 2 and 3 more.... But was a gap creating unintentional jump on the 2 unit basket ... Now &1.95 and $2.95 for 2 and 3 respectively

Or free on most baskets $49 and up of course smiling smiley

For you pikers still wondering if the cheap Lightning cable deals you see are worth it, let me save you a few bucks and a LOT of frustration: they aren't. Here's a great article on the subject:

[thewirecutter.com]
I was surprised, but the lightning cable you should buy is Apple’s standard cable, which is ~$18 on Amazon or $19 at the Apple Store. Having to pay premium prices for something as basic as a cable can come across as insulting, but chances are that your phone is mission critical, so spending a few extra bucks for peace of mind is worth it. Saving the cost of a fast-food dinner simply is not worth the risk of getting stuck with a dead phone and nonfunctioning cable while traveling.

I agree with every word and maxed out OWC Larry's deal. Thanks Larry!

I should have. I went back for two more and they would have been $2 cheaper each, since I got a case for my miniR.

But I ordered anyway because it's still a great deal. Cheapies failed me or once that gave me a warning under iOS6 stopped working completely in iOS7.
