Does the iPhone 5C use the same charging port CABLE as 5S

Someone has asked me to fix their iPhone 5C saying the charging port doesn't work. Before the iPhone 5 came out I fixed iPhones all the time for friends, but I've always had a hard time finding parts for the 5. I'm wondering if the 5C uses the same flex cable for the dock connector as the 5S or the 5? All I can find is this:

looks like those parts are interchangeable on the 5C/5S.

However looking at the part numbers, they do appear to be different:

For $7, I'd buy the 5c one just to be sure.
