Close to original, but still not the same – USB Data & Charging Cable for iPad/iPhone 3G/3GS/4 (2M) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It is two meters long, so you can easily connect it to back side of your computer while still being able to use the phone/ipod while charging.
Also long enough to be used in bed when phone runs sleep tracking routines.
Looks and feels very close to original
Cheaper than OEM apple cable
No problems charging/syncing my iPhone 4
Cons:
- Connector is a bit larger thus while still fits has more friction when connecting/disconnecting than original, not really dangerous to the phone, but sometimes you could think that phone is being scratched from inside...
- Phone connector has a small gap between metal and plastic, also if looked from the side - faces are not parallel like on original.
- Came a bit dirty
Other:
It even has the "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China" label on cord, just like original.
Icon on phone connector is printed with a bit bolder line and not so sharp.
Bottomline:
Cheap, but works
