These are are quality made. They have a braided cord to protect from breakage. They work great with my iPod. They are 6 foot which is a great length for most charging cords. I love that it came with 3 because I can use one in my bedroom, one in my car and one in the kitchen. They are a awesome proce as well. They look nice and work amazingly. Gives my iPod a fast charge and they are just like the name brand one but for less than half the price. Definitely a great value for some great charging and syncing cord. I definitely recommend them!
