Yesterday I was at Fashion Valley Mall with Vida and saw this kiosk selling cables for mobile devices. I looked them up on Amazon to see how the review were on these cables. The reason was these Gorilla Cables aren’t Apple MFi-Certified. The good review of course out did the bad reviews but I always read the bad review first. Most of them were the cables on charged their devices but you couldn’t transfer data. The data transfer affects two things. Those are plugging your device to a computer/laptop or plugging the cord into your car stereo to play music from App or the player. After I looked up the reviews on Amazon, I bought three 2m (6.6ft) cables for $9.99 each. This is how I look at it. If they work, than great and if not, then it will be a learning experience. Either way I look at it, I’m going to write about these cables and let the readers know.
The photo at the top is how they look when you buy them. They were coiled up and tied with a wired twist tie. You go to the Kiosk and you pick what color you like from each bin. They also sold other type of cables too. It was like being at a candy store looking at those cables.
You can see a big difference in the length between a 1 meter (3.3ft) vs 2 meters (6.6ft) cables. I know many people prefer the long cables for charging. All the of the cables charged iPhone 6 Plus, iPod Touch 6G, iPad 4 and two iPhone 6s Plus. We didn’t test the data transfer but we didn’t care because we all just wanted to see if they charged iOS Devices. You are taking a gamble on buying Non-MFi Certified Cables. I look at it this way, life is always a gamble. Some people are on a budget and willing to take a chance. I say, go for it and please let me know your experiences with these cables. You will never know until you try it. The Gorilla Cables are well made and on the stiff side but still very flexible. You can also order Gorilla Cables on Amazon for about $8.25 each (prices may vary from different sellers), if you can’t get them at a mall. You can also order Gorilla Cables on their website, >HERE<. They comes in many colors. Everyone seems to be happy with their cables, so far. If you have any questions about this blog, please leave comments. Have a nice day and let me know if you got the cables. You can comment on your experience on this blog post to let other readers know.
