The only drawback is the fact that Amazon has a little over worked here at the black cables along the lines of Apple. The end with the Lightning connector is a little too thick and does not fit so the original Apple Cases for the iPhone 5S. That's a bit of a shame. I use the cable now only for the iPad, because the restriction does not apply here, since I use it without shell ..
Currently Amazon has the Lightning cable in white and here it seems to have followed the specifications of Apple again. The plug is flat and fits into accessories from manufacturers that follow the guidelines. Except for this shortcoming, I can recommend the Lightning cable from AmazonBasics warmly.
