BUILT STRONG

Not just any charge cable, DuraTek was forged from superior quality materials for ultimate durability. Aramid fibers reinforce the inner wiring for added strength, abrasion-resistant nylon forms a tough outer jacket, and highly flexible insulation minimizes damage from friction. The strength created by these resilient ingredients is further enhanced by smart design details to reinforce the cable at its stress points. This ensures the finished product can withstand even the most demanding routines, and perform above and beyond expectation to deliver a cable that borders on indestructible.

Made for: iPhone / iPad

DuraTek™ Lightning to USB-A Cable

THE BELKIN DIFFERENCE

  • Pioneering technology and innovation for over 35 years
  • Aramid fibers add extra strength and protect the wires
  • 5-Year Limited Lifetime Warranty for added peace of mind

HIDDEN STRENGTH

One of the key ingredients of DuraTek’s extraordinary strength is the use of Aramid fibers. This super-strong material is also used to reinforce protective clothing, and strengthen products, like tennis racquets and surfboards, where durability is key. Able to flex without stretching, Aramid strands are built into DuraTek cables, providing a structure that protects the wires inside from damage.

DOUBLE BRAIDED NYLON

The external cable jacket is made from premium and hard-wearing nylon that resists damage caused by everything from transportation to rubbing against your nightstand. Double braiding, a technique used in rope making, is incorporated to increase strength and resilience.

FLEXIBLE INSULATION

Insulation protects the wires inside a cable from damage as the cable bends and flexes. Some insulation can cause stiffness, affecting the overall suppleness of the cable. The highly flexible insulation within DuraTek minimizes friction, allowing the cable to bend easily while protecting the wires within from damage.

BETTER STRAIN RELIEF

The strain relief–where the cable joins the connector head–is made of flexible TPE and longer than that found on other cables. This added length and flexibility absorbs stress and reinforces the juncture between the cable and connector head, preventing separation. Not just flexible, TPE is also smooth, tactile and more environmentally-friendly than PVC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing customer service i wrote a review a couple down and can't find how to update it so im writing a new one. Belkin went ahead and sent me a new cord after mine prematurely frayed. Really impressed with the sound customer service that we often don't see today. Thanks so much Belkin for caring about your customers and standing by your products. You have a continued customer here!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from FLAWED DESIGN I bought this for my new iPhone 7 Plus and in less than 2 months it began to fray and tear. And I only use it in my car. I am seriously disappointed in this lineup of Belkin cables and I have other cables from Belkin that are amazing! Which lasted more than 2 years. They’re the L shaped cables and for some reason they’re cheaper and last longer. I’m not sure how this one made it past a test group but it needs to be improved or i seriously got a dud.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke too soon I bought this 5 months ago and it worked great, until the end started twisting and i couldn’t really twist it back. It still worked though. Until it suddenly started overheating and smoking, burning a hole through the cable. Luckily i was right next to my phone when it happened and the damage wasn’t too big. But i bought it thinking it would last me at least a few years instead of just a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great charger! I’ve had this for 5 months now with 0 problems. Works with my car port and hasn’t gone out on me yet like past chargers. Very happy with a charger for my phone for once.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed I bought this a month ago, worked very well. A few weeks in the cord started bending so terribly I cannot unbend it due to the material. It's slowly wearing and tearing and is on the verge of completely breaking. My box says 5 year warranty but I have no idea how to exercise this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! Bought what I thought was a cable that would last. I was wrong. Lasted a month, then stopped working. So happy I spent 30$ on a cable for a month....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superlative, well-designed product These cables are by far the best quality cables of this type that I've ever owned. The built-in strain relief features alone are worth the price of admission. superlative kudos to Belkin!!! JP in CT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never worked once I was recently in SFO airport and bought this charger so obviously I was in a pinch. Spent $45 and It never worked, phone died, missed most my cousins birthday party. Checked it on several “cubes” and nothing. You’re welcome Belkin for the free donation, invest that money in a working product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this a year ago at MediaMarkt in hopes that I would not need another for a few years. After only a few times of accidentally tugging on it and several times of folding the cable, the head of the small connector is already frayed and doesn't connect to an iPhone properly. It overheats dangerously to the point where I smell something burning. I didn't even last the 2 years of the limited warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! I purchased this about 3 weeks ago and very satisfied with it. Definitely purchase another on as spare

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Premium Price, sub-par quality I bought this cable a little over a month ago and splurged for a higher quality cable than I am used to, then the cable started charging only sometimes for about a day an then the next day the cable will not work at all. It looks perfect but it doesn't work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected better I bought this about two months ago. I was skeptical to buy this since it was a bit out of my budget, but I decided to splurge on a charger that was built to last. The is already braiding is opening at different spots and exposing the charger cable underneath.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have not one but two of these cables and the matching car charger attachment. I purchased them approximately six to nine months ago and both no longer work. Not sure why as both cables are in great used condition and the car attachment still works. Overall would not purchase this again and will no longer recommend it to others. I only gave it one star because I had to and it is pretty even if it doesn't work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love it but.... I really took issue with the Apple cord as they fall apart easily. So hubby and I decided on these for our iPhones. His is grey and I got pink - they have been plugged in next to bed on each side since we bought them at the Apple store in March of this year. Problem is last week my pink one started fraying by the lightning end. Braid is coming apart. I looked at my husband and his had no issue. Apple won't take it back even though there is a five year guaranty they said their return policy is 30 days. This ain't right...it felt like a solid cord and it's only been five months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped working I bought this charger about 2 weeks ago and it suddenly stopped working. I am surprised becuase my previous charger was the same kind but lasted me so long and was very good quality. Disappointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped charging after 5 days I bought my charger last week, and for the time that it worked I was satisfied and happy with durability of the cable. However, less than a week later, my charger had suddenly stopped working. I find this concerning because i had no previous problems with the charger and it was working smoothly during the same day, but it stopped working out of nowhere. I'm not sure what could have happened, but I am still disappointed it was ruined so quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product but ... I bought one of these lightning to usb cables last November. I decided to buy yours instead of the original apple lightning cable because your products look very resistant! but it doesn't work anymore. I'm very disappointed because I didn't expected this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powery supply. This is my second one to buy. Definitely recommend this power supply. Charges my iphone and ipad no problem. I have an iphone 7 and get about 4 full charges out of it. The extra cables make it easy for charging the power supply and your iphone. And you can store the cable inside the unit. Sturdy design. Very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The product does not work I bought this cable 4 days ago at an Apple Store. It doesn´t charge my iPhone, it doesn´t matter where I connect it: AC, PC, MacBook Pro) Very dissapointed with the quality of this product. I will never again buy a product from Belkin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I actually have purchased 5 of these cables. I bought two at Christmas time and thought they were great so I bought 3 more. Within the last couple of weeks, the lightning end come off in the phone and now two others won't charge me phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased through Apple Store A-1 cable I kept having the basic cable for my iPad mini bulging and breaking through so wires were visible at lightening end. Apple suggested I try this cord and I am amazed at the durability! I highly recommend to those of us who are a little hard on our cords!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A joke!!! I received this product a couple days ago, the excitement turned to disappointment quickly. The cable stopped charging my iPhone a day after receiving it. Great quality cable, but poor performance..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problems with USB cable I was given this cable for Christmas but lately the double sided braid is coming undone and the white part that protects the wires is sticking out of the cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought Three! I bought these cables as gifts and one for myself. Couldn't be more impressed with the design and the perfect color match to my gold 7 Plus. Well worth the $30, and there is a five year warranty included. I work at an Apple retail location, and I always recommend these cables as alternatives to our own.
