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.
