    Hello everyone. Has anyone had issues with 3rd party lightning cables? Occasionally when I charge my phone with the 3rd party cable from my computer it will say "This device is not supported" while other times it will charge just fine.

    If there are issues with connectivity I certainly don't want to risk my P3 to a cable. So far I haven't had any issues using it with the P3, but I was just wondering if anyone else has had any issues with 3rd party cables.

    What cable would you suggest for optimal performance?

    I'm also using the Cambond Lightning cable. It's the perfect size and it's well made. They are available in different colors too.

    To each there own if cost a issue use the one that came with your phone or tablet
    If you want to clean it up and have a short cable that works great use the one I and other recommend
