Anker PowerLine+ Lightning Cable 6ft Durable with Pouch ($10.19 with promo code, usually $16.99)

Anyone with any experience of using iPhone or iPad will be able to attest to the fact that Apple’s own Lightning branded cables aren’t exactly the best quality. In fact, they typically come to the end of their life before the iPhone does. That’s where these third-party PowerLine+ offerings come into play. An amazing build quality offers longevity and you even get a little additional length along with a pouch thrown in for good measure.

Best of all, you can use the following promo code at checkout and grab the cable for just $10.19: 822ANKER.
