Works fine on iPhone5 but not iPad4 – USB Data / Charging 8-Pin Lightning Cable for iPhone 5 / Touch 5 / Nano 7 / iPad Mini - White (5M) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-Works fine on iPhone 5- -Looks very much like the original @pple brand cable- -Works in either direction (when you plug it into the phone you can take it out and flip it and it works)- -Long, gives you a lot of range in house and car -Priced reasonably
Cons:
-Will not work on iPad 4-
Other:
I bought it hoping that it would work for charging my iPad 4 but it doesn't. My guess is the cable wire is too thin to carry the voltage? But that is just a guess. It does work great on the iPhone 5, so I will still be able to use it. If you need a long cable for charging the iPad 4 use sku 171816 and they work perfectly and they are 200cm.
Bottomline:
Seems like a great cable and the price is reasonable.
