This cord is durable, flexible, unique looking, never tangles, dependable, and a pretty good length. I have plugged and unplugged this cord a million times and look and functions the same way it did say one. Absolutely 0 compatibility issues and charges phone quicker than most cords I use. Do not hesitate to buy this cord...if it didn't come in my Birchbox I would buy it in a second. Great product.
