I brought this for my dad so that he could use it in the car as a Uber driver for the passenger. I just got told that the cables we got might have been defective because it was overheating and the cables are getting really hot. Might be a product quality issue slowly creeping in.
These chargers don't last. We went through four chargers in less than 8 months. The cables are thick and seem like they are well-made and won't fall apart, but they stop working well before then. In addition, we frequently get "This accessory may not be supported" message every time we try to charge an iPhone or iPad and we have to keep connecting and disconnecting the cable until it works. I do not recommend purchasing this product.
I learned my lesson. I tried to "cheap out" on replacement Lightning cables and what I got was a set of four cables that charge unbelievably slowly. I'm not sure it even counts as charging! I have these as backups, but I don't use them when my phone really needs to power up. From now on, it's Apple cables only.
