The best durable Lightning cables you can buy for your iPhone or iPad
The good news is that pretty much every legit, 3rd party Lightning cable out there still has to meet some kind of quality standard — they need to be Apple MFi certified, otherwise your iPhone will just refuse to work with them. The bad news is that with so many cables out there, you might be confused which ones to pick up.
Fear not, however, we did the digging for you. Here are 7 of the best Lightning cables you should consider buying.
Anker PowerLine II
Native Union Belt
The braided Belt is both pretty and tough, as it touts being 6x stronger than your standard Apple Lightning cable. It comes with its own cable loop clip in the middle, so folding the cable to put away or transport is that much easier.
Native Union Night Cable
The Night Cable is made as the ultimate nightstand cable — it's 10 feet long so you can comfortably pull your phone over to the bed, and it has a weighted knot running along its length to stop the wire from wiggling away in crevices and dark corners.
Fuse Chicken Titan
The regular-size version of the previous entry — the Titan cable is lauded as the toughest cable on Earth with its flexible steel construction protecting it from outside damage. As with other cables that call themselves indestructible, you've got lifetime warranty here.
MOS Spring Cable
The Spring is a braided cable with aluminum heads that adds springs in the strain relief area near your connectors — the place that gets twisted and turned most often. It looks classy and promises to last forever, charging your grandson's iPhone 45s as well as it charges your iPhone X.
