The Hookup: Durable Anker PowerLine+ Lightning Cable – $14

Anker powerline+ cableSome of y’all swear that the default iPhone charing cables are weak af. I have a sneaking suspicion that these are the same people to just tangle all your cables up in a knot and just throw them any and everywhere.

Regardless of WHY the cables get damaged, the fact of the matter is there is a need for more durable cables that can stand up to “above average” treatment. I did some digging and found a pretty decent deal on some Anker PowerLine+ Lightning Cable that’s made from Kevlar fiber with double-braided nylon and laser-welded connectors that last 6X longer than your average iPhone cables.

In addition to being crazy durable, they aren’t a ba-jillion dollars. You can grab a 3ft Anker PowerLine+ Lightning Cable in various colors for only $14 on Amazon.
