2-pack Anker MFi Certified Premium Lightning Cables


We really like Anker Lightning cables. They’re durable, Apple-certified, and made with premium materials. This 2-pack of 3-foot cables tends to hover around this price range, but every once in a while it nearly doubles, so it’s worth taking advantage of the discount. Each cable is tested to last at least 4000 bends, and comes with an 18-month warranty.

You can buy this Anker 2-pack of Lightning cables for $13 on Amazon (normal price $36).

    I must have had a bad unit cause I tried the ThinCharge and that thing sucked it wouldn’t even hold a charge after a couple weeks and the charging output rate is so slow it took like 4 hours to recharge my phone from 20% or lower

    • Melvco

      agree with the slower charging, but haven’t noticed any drop-off in my several weeks of usage.

    • richard bryant

      You’re not the only one. I had the same problem. I’ve been fighting the company for a month now trying to get a refund. They don’t offer refunds though so they will send a replacement. But that’s probably I’d rather spend $60 on a Lifeproof or a Mophie on Ebay.

    Pricing for the Apple Watch Sport is incorrect

    • Nope, it shows at $300 for me too. Might be different if you live outside the US?

      • Zach Krase

        Oh I meant the original price of the watch. I live in the US, on Apple’s website the price for that watch is $350. They brought the prices down recently.

  • Good deal on Apple Watch
