Amazon 6ft Lightning Cable

Apple’s included Lightning cable just seems to fall short of useful. Maybe that is because it is too short. The charging cable that comes with your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is only about 3 feet long. If your wall plug is right next to your bed, then you will be OK, but otherwise, you need extra feet.

Amazon makes an MFi-certified Lightning cable that is six feet long, twice the length of Apple’s. So, if you need the extra length, or just want a second cable, Amazon has you covered.

Just like Apple’s Lightning connector, the cable is designed to allow you to charge your iPhone and sync with your computer. It is MFi-certified, so there should not be a problem with future iOS updates and the cable’s compatibility.

The Lightning stem is narrow, so you will be able to use it in conjunction with most cases. It is approximately the same width as Apple’s Lightning stem.

Whether you are a cable hoarder or just want to the flexibility of a longer cord, this is a good option. The price alone makes it a good buy considering Apple’s Lightning cable costs $19.

Amazon’s six-foot MFi-certified Lightning cable costs $9. 79 and is available in black or white.

Amazon also makes a car charger at a great price. Check it out.

  • Amazon’s lightning cables are the best. I bought a lot of them a while ago. They’re super cheap and get the job done…

      6ft is nice. I could use a longer cable. Only wish the logo wasn’t there or in a light value gray so not to be as noticeable.

    IMO, Anker’s lighting cables are better.

    You should at least be upfront about posting referral links. Its pretty obvious that this post is not about new or exciting product, its simply an excuse to post a referral link.

        Could you consider a post on the VPN Unlimited on the deals page? I use another VPN service and have used others. It would be great to see/read a review that addresses the speed and the up-time. I searched but no results popped up just stuck at loading.

    This Anker one I got is $11.99 (as of 5/1/2014), and has a “4000+ bend lifespan” amazon [dot] com /gp/product/B00KGXH2SE
    Way better quality.

    9.79 dollars, 9.99 gbp. How does that work out ?

      Lightning cables on eBay are almost always knockoffs. Don’t buy that crap.

  • Gerardo Castro

    AmazonBasics makes some very good quality cables. I bought a couple of Optical cables from them and I love em

  • fritzzz24

    Good cables, but the lightning end is too thick to fit into an otterbox case.

    Amazon and anker ones are decent. But I like the techarmor braided cables the best. Lifetime warranty that covers wear and tear is also better than the standard 1-2yr.
