Available only in white, there are zero surprises with this one. There’s a USB plug on one end, and Lightning on the other. The housing around the latter plug is about as tall as Apple’s, but there’s more material on either end, making it 50% or so wider at 1 cm. This means that it’s going to be compatible with many, but not all cases. The cable itself is glossy, not matte like the one Apple uses, but overall Lightlinez XS feels just fine.
And, really, that’s all there is to it. For the same price as Apple’s two Lightning cables, you get one that’s significantly shorter, but not the shortest on the market. If a compact cable is what you need, and you’re willing to pay as much as you would for something longer, Lightlinez XS is worth considering, and merits a limited recommendation. For most people, though, the extra space a longer cable requires won’t be a real problem, and will be more useful in more circumstances.
