Cable is not much reliable and soon you will get window like this:

Because it has poor quality of wires. Because wires not securely fixed inside the connector. And also wires are not shielded.

Yet another fake accessory in my collection. Actually this one is copy design of product and package, but not call itself Apple MD823ZM/A. It has distinctive name (LV-Lightning-01), so one can see that this is not Apple product.

Left is Apple MD823ZM/A, Right is LV-Lightning-01:

Apple iOS maps (wrong)
apple-patona
