Wow, my Quail power cord looks just like...
...the Zcable Lightning power cord which sells for $125.
Now I'm not saying they're the same, but I can't tell the difference between the power cord by Quail I'm holding in my hands right now and the cord in the photos on Zcable's site of the Lightning (see big photo below) -- to my eyes, they look exactly
alike. I'll post pictures of my cable later tonight or some time this weekend.
For more info on my Quail power cord, scroll up to the top of this thread. My cord cost around $10.00 plus shipping.
According to their site, Zcable performs some proprietary optimization to the Lightning, and I'm not sure what that is. I've optimized my Quail cord, but my optimization is anything but proprietary (I put ProGold on the contacts). I should be getting my Max back very soon (which is the component I bought this cord for), so I'll let you know if I hear any benefits (or otherwise).Photo of Zcable's Lightning power cord from their web site:
