Top-Notch Charging Cables
Ditch Apple's Lightning cable for one of these affordable alternatives.
If none of the featured cables suit your style, here are a few tips for picking out a quality cable designed to last:
1) The cable must be MFi-certified. If it is not, walk away. You will be wasting your money and your time. 2) We've found that braiding is a consistent indicator of quality and reliability. It helps keep cords from tangling too, but it's not necessary for a great cable.
3) If you need absolute durability, go for a shorter length. 4) Every good cable has a plastic (or better material) support that connects over the wire and attaches to the head of the cable. This prevents breaking when bent near the ends. 5) Make sure that whatever cable you buy has a safety rating and is guaranteed or has a warranty. If it's not, then the manufacturer doesn't stand by its products, and that's the clearest warning you'll ever have.
