SPE Sync Cable for iPhone and iPad - accessory review
The SPE sync cable for iPhone and iPad is a perfect and affordable solution for the age old problem of never having enough cables handy when you need them. If you've ever experienced the frustration of getting to the office and finding your iPhone at only 50% battery life and realizing that you forgot your sync cable... well this accessory is for you.
At only $4.95, the SPE sync cable is nearly a quarter of the price of Apple's cable. So if you've been thinking it'd be nice to have an extra cable or two laying around, pick one of these up!
In comparison with Apple's cable, SPE's sync cable is the same length at 3 feet, 4 inches long. However, the dock connector end is bigger. This means that it may not work with all cases. If you use a case that is designed in such a way that Apple's sync cable barely fits, then the SPE cable will not work for you. Two cases that I have encountered that do not work with this cable is Apple's bumper case and Element's Vapor case. Another difference is that SPE's cable has two buttons you must squeeze in order to unplug it from your device. If you like a secure connection that won't come loose unintentionally, you'll like this. If you prefer the convenience of of quick and easy removal than this is mildly annoying, but acceptable.
Despite these inconveniences, the SPE sync cable for iPhone and iPad is an excellent choice for a back-up cable and for that the price is its biggest draw.
- Great cable for iPhone, iPad, and iPod
- Will not fit all cases
- Must squeeze buttons to unplug
