£1 iPhone cable

Come on ladies, come on ladies
One pound cable
Have a, have a look, one pound cable
Have a, have a look, one pound cable
Very, very good and very, very cheap

Did you sing it? Did you? I sing this (*replace cable with current item) pretty much every time I pick something up in Poundland.

This week I bought 3 iPhone 4s cables for just, you guessed it, £1 each from my favourite high street store. They look exactly the same as official Apple ones too!

I’m not fussed about having all my Apple accessories being official but I know for some people it’s important so why not go get this cable that looks EXACTLY the same for £1 rather than the typical £4.90 price tag the official one comes with. The cheapest cable on eBay is £1.70 making Poundland a true winner once again.

Here I have the official charger and the Poundland charger side by side. Can you tell the difference?

Sadly I couldn’t see the cable that is compatible for iPhone 5, but fingers crossed they get this one too.

In my opinion one can never have too many cables for their phone. The bloomin’ things drain of battery very quickly so I keep one in my handbag, one in the car, one by my bed and one in the front room. Excessive? Nah, they only cost £1!

  • Just be careful using them because they'll wreck your iPhone. I used one on my iPhone and it started to cut off a few times a day, I researched and apparently it's a comment problem that cables not from Apple will screw up your phone!

  • Hi Corrine. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I have heard some horror stories similar to your experience! From my understanding it is normally some cheap cables from ebay that are made abroad where there are no safety and QA checks done on them. I stay away from these. I have used several non official cables for all 4 iPhone I have had and not yet had a problem (fingers crossed). I just refuse to pay for the original over-priced accessories from Apple! x
