Powerlet iPhone Lightning Charging Cable
Worked for a month...
It worked great for about a month. Now it stops charging as soon as the engine revs. Unplugging and re plugging while the engine is off or at idle works sometimes, but it stops charging again as soon as the engine revs.
Wouldn't buy again unless they fix (the regulator?). Investing in a usb battery backup instead as this cable has left me with a dead phone more than once.

It just works
I bought this to power my iPhone 6. Plugged right into the oem BMW port and powered right up. The short is perfect for me, full range of the handle bars without any issues.

iPhone6+ not quite ready yet
Purchased the short one last year to use with my iPhone 5, and ordered another one after I broke the connector! Then I upgraded to the iPhone6+, and it started throwing an "unsupported accessory" error message on the phone and refusing to charge. I contacted the manufacturer, they are currently working on upgrading the cord's microchip to make it compatible.

Not Apple Lightning compatible
When I plug in my phone I always get an error message that the cable is not compatible with my iPhone 5S. Powerlet replaced it once, but the new cable does not work either.

So far, so good.
I've always used powerlet cables to connect my electronic devices into the powerlet outlet on my bike because they fit snugly the way they're supposed to. Though I've used this cable only once so far since it's a late season purchase, it performed exactly as it should: seated firmly in both the outlet and the device and provided continuous power throughout a twisty day of riding. The only downside, as others have mentioned, is that it's a pricey little bit of gear.

You would expect something like this to just work. Although it took all kinds of wiggling to get it to work in my 2013 BMW F800GS. It has to be in there JUST right or it there is no power to the device. It would vibrate out after 15min.
When it works it works well. Although i want to plug it in and want it to work. That is not the case.
Should have purchased the SAE connector.

4000+ Miles, Only Regrets
I purchased the product at the end of May to power my iPhone5s with IOS7 and the latest updates. First month was 80/20 - 80% of the time it would work, 20% of the time it would take turning the bike on/off, resetting the power cable, powering the phone on and off, etc. Once you got it to work, so long as I didn't shut off the bike it would keep working. Next few thousand miles and two months it got worse and worse until the product stopped functioning completely. I received a 2nd cable brand new and it failed to function immediately, and continues to not work. I do not recommend this product in any way.
