The charging cable has an MFI (Apple) certified lightning tip and a micro USB cable - so whether you have an iPhone or an Android, this cable has you covered! It comes in white, black, blue, red, and gunmetal.
I've found there are some chargers and cables out there that tend to get hot - these two definitely do not! It's nice to know that the item you're using is reliable and won't burst into flames or anything ... I did use an older charging cable (with a non-MFI certified lightning tip) with this charger, and it did get hot because of that charging cable, so always be sure to you're using certified items!
