Charge and Sync at the Speed of Lightning! Use the 3 meter 8-Pin lightning to USB cable to charge your iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th Gen), iPad 4th Gen, and iPad mini at the fastest possible speed. The smaller, more durable lightning connector is also reversible, which makes plugging it in easier than ever. Plug it into your laptop to charge and sync, or use your own wall or car charger with USB port to charge from anywhere. Great as a replacement cable or if you simply need an extra.
