PROS
+ It's cheap. + It charges the phone, and syncs with iTunes. + It works! + There's a power LED, an upgrade from the original cable.
CONS
Average build quality.
I'm surprise by the fact that this cable actually works. From charging to iTunes, everything just works. I couldn't try JB as it's not out yet, but I suspect jailbreaking should be fine with this cable, as iTunes and MTP works.
.
The added LED status light is a plus. I can actually tell if the USB port or the AC adapter is turned on and supplying power without connecting the phone. It's a green LED concealed within the grip of the lightning connector, diffused enough by the white casing so it's actually quite mellow.
.
The quality of the lightning connector looks average. I've tried forcing the connector's housing seam open with bare hands but it won't budge, so it's doesn't look like it will break easily.
