Here is the cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o02_s00_i00
I will point out though, right after I got it I got the iPhone 5. Tried a generic lightning adapter with it and all it would do was charge the phone, not read it. Using the Apple adapter with it and all is well again. The cable linked truly is comparable in build quality with the oem imo.
