As an iPhone or iPad user, you can never have too many Lightning cables. They always seem to get lost or broken, or left in a hotel room, or someone takes the one you had at your desk at work, or…
If you use USB-C chargers to fast-charge your iPhone, you’re probably acutely aware of the relative lack of USB-C to Lightning cables in your life. And Apple wants $19 for a single 3-foot cable or $35 for a 6-foot cable.
That’s why this Black Friday deal is so tempting. Anker is selling its MFi-certified 3-foot USB-C to Lightning cable for only $11.46. That’s for the white cable, if you want a black one it’s $11.99. That’s 25% less than the usual price, and even a few bucks lower than the previous best sale price we could find. It’s also 40% less than Apple charges for its cable of the same length.
There are lots of terrible Lightning cables out there, but this isn’t one of those no-name cables you find at the drug store checkout stand. Anker’s cables are MFi certified and more durable than most of those cheap knock-offs. It’s even backed by a lifetime warranty.[Week-long deal: MFi-certified 3-foot USB-C to Lightning cable on Amazon.]
