KALUOS Lightning to USB Cable MFI 1m, 1.5m / Black, Gold, Silver (AU $2.66) Shipped @ AliExpress

932

These cables are seriously egg-cellent. I've ordered several times and was blown away with the quality.
I just ordered more from these guys this morning and realized that they are 21% off this Tuesday!
They are already a steal at the current price, so this is a definite bargain!!

Available in 1m or 1.5m lengths in black, silver or gold.

Enjoy :)

  • Thumbnail looks one-sided, i.e. not bidirectional - can confirm OP?

    Are they certified (legit) or will they no longer charge 1 week after use?

    • They come well packaged (in retail packaging) and are advertised as MFI. My wife has used her cables daily at home and in the car.. hasn't missed a beat yet. Now the seller claims that these are in fact MFI certified. I really have no way of telling so I really can't confirm.

  • This deal hasnt started yet.

  • So should we wait till tuesday to buy these?
    How much will they be with 21% off discount?

  • I bought 4 of them a couple of months ago, good quality and work well. However, for some strange reason they don't work with my Kogan 4 USB port international charger. Work fine with all other chargers.

      for some strange reason they don't work with my Kogan 4 USB port international charger.

      Need to use MFk cables on that charger…

  • OP, do you have something like a charger doctor to see if this cable is capable of charging over 1A?

  • There's review comments that say the black cable has white connector. Can you confirm the photos match the cables you received?

    Hi op
    I currently have dispute open with this seller
    I ordered 6 cables
    3 out of 6 don't work. They come up with same message "This accessory is not supported …"
    And if I move the phone the cable stops charging (as in when I'm in bed with cable plugged in)
    But then again I paid buger all for these cables

    • Doesn't sound great at all. Let us know how you go with replacement from them.

      • 3 of 6 don't charge at all or they do but you can't use it to connect to iTunes?
        I just want them for charging nothing else.

    • What is the current firmware on your device?

      Also, is your device jailbroken?

    • Be very wary of the dispute process. Do not press accept sellers solution until they have actually delivered the solution.

  • I appreciate Op's positive feedback about these cables but any lightning cables at this price I would be weary of.

    • Actually the apple cables are way overpriced.
      Same as screen protectors and cases.

      • Well if I have to buy 10 of these to get a working one, then the genuine article doesn't seem so overpriced any more…

  • I bought two a few months ago. They work perfectly.

    • Yes they use MFI word, but not use picture. This brand is not real MFI.

      Out of curiosity, authorized, as in these companies have paid apple to appear on their 'authorized' list.

      • Not sure what you mean. I can see a few possible issues:

        1. Payment for MFi certification
        Apple says it doesn't charge:

        Is there a program fee for participation in the MFi Program?
        There is no program fee at this time. However, all program applicants must purchase and complete a company identity verification through a secure, third party Web-site.)

        2. Whether it's worth consumers bothering about MFi
        Well, that's up for debate, but the point is: the manufacturer makes claims about being MFi certified, so if Apple's public record doesn't bear this out, it's worth knowing about it before buying. Personally, I've stopped buying non-MFi cables, as I've had two stop working while travelling overseas, and it's just not worth it.

        3. Payment for appearing in the 'authorised' list (ie as a separate issue from participating in the program itself)
        I haven't seen anything from Apple suggesting this. Is this what you mean, and have you got any reason for suggesting/ believing it?

      • Out of curiosity, authorized, as in these companies have paid apple to appear on their 'authorized' list.

        As I understand the MFi certification. The manufacturer pays Apple for the certification via buying the chips needed. One per cable.

        • He is right, you pay for the MFI Chip. if you have your own chinese branded connector chips, it'll die in a few weeks, just google fake vs real lightning cables and people have reviewed how the chinese make fake chips.

    • It wouldn't be that hard to pop this image onto your packaging: https://support.apple.com/library/content/dam/edam/applecare...

  • Will the charger fit through a lifeproof case?

  • I predict it will be 'Ozbargained' by Tuesday.

  • Just a noob question
    do these work with ipad air 2
    ok
    webside say it does

  • incase you're hesistant, the last deal was positive, others on ozbargain have purchased and confirmed it works great and haven't died out compared to cheaper lightning cables.

  • I bought one of these as suggested last time. I haven't tried the cable yet but there is no MFi logo to be seen on the packaging and the brand does not appear in Apple's authorised MFi list. I lodged a dispute with the seller. It may be a good cable but I highly doubt it's MFi which is problematic because you really need that to have a reliable cable as the MFi cables contain an Apple authentication chip.

  • This type cable available for android phone ?

    • if you're after Micro USB cables, I only recommend Tikbro. These are the highest quality cables I've ever seen, the connectors have a solid click and don't become loose over time, cable materials is second to none. no wear and tear, it's a premium product with many refinements over the years.

      • Ah no don't buy Tikbro, they have gone way downhill. They used to be reputable on OzBargain but not lately.

        • I've been buying Tikbro since they first came out. Every sale I buy some, they've become 10x better since their early generations, the connectors are way stronger, better materials. The earlier versions connectors used to slip out easily. Since their latest build, I haven't had a problem. What brand do you recommend?

      • Tickbro cables don't last. I bought some and they all came loose at the connection after a few weeks. I use, recommend and all Blitzwolf cables. Best I've across for value and quality.

        • You must have the older generation where the connectors become loose. I also recommend Blitzwolf and Tikbro are the same quality.

        • @zeckem:

          Fair enough. I haven't bought any tickbro cables since my first and only experience with those cables.

      • 24AWG from tikbro…
        hmmm anyone know any 22AWG?

  • Does AliExpress charge in Australian dollar or USD? Curious as I want to make sure if I would be charged international transaction fee by CBA, as AE doesn't accept PayPal.

    • My credit card shows the charges as being in AUD but it may depend on which currency you've set in Aliexpress.

      • Sorry should have mentioned Debit MasterCard. I know some CC does not charge internation transaction fee. On CBA eebsite it says, even if it is charged in AUD, and if vendor is an overseas, they will charge 3% of transcation effective Sep 2015.

  • Bought one about 3weeks ago started having problems not charging about 2weeks later. Purchased silver.

    Plus the silver part is just a aluminium slide on piece and comes off easy.

    • Thanks for posting this feedback. Real MFI products are never this cheap, since they have to pay Apple for the MFI chips.

  • Just ordered a few. Not sure if it was just me, but I had to order in multiple of 2's to avoid shipping fee which defaulted to $2.14 when 3 or more

  • it says they are USD$2.50

  • Does anyone know if these 2/3m "MFI" cables from the same seller are any good?

  • Bought 1 for the wife via App for $2.68 (1mtr gold) so will see what happens.

  • i bought 4 of this cable. excellent. now want longer one.even 1.5m one is short.
