Your Pick For Best Lightning Cable: Anker PowerLine

When it comes to third party Lightning cables, Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine (and braided PowerLine+ ) cables reigned supreme in the nomination round of this week’s Kinja Co-Op , with AmazonBasics consolidating support as a budget-friendly alternative.

...My Anker cables have survived all sorts of use that have killed other cables many times over.

I originally purchased Monoprice cables, and they had a terrible tendency to fray and stop working. The great thing about Monoprice is that they have a lifetime warranty, but it’s a pain to keep replacing them.

Anker, on the other hand, are great and I am still on my original cables. They also do a bunch of customer appreciation stuff—I’ve received free cables, chargers, etc.

The only negative thing about Anker is that they, like many on Amazon, do the free-for-reviews thing. I hear Amazon is cracking down on that, so there you go: hate the game, not the player, I suppose. - Jägs

I haven’t found and Anker product yet that didn’t make me glad I made the selection. - VitaminCM

The only downside of PowerLine cables is that they’re somewhat expensive. Not compared to Apple’s own cables, of course, but they demand a premium among third party offerings. Luckily, Amazon’s own AmazonBasics Lightning cables are imminently affordable, and also proved to be quite popular.

I prefer the AmazonBasics 6 ft certified lightning cable. I have never had any issues with it breaking down. It doesn’t seem to tangle either. 6 ft means you can (usually) use your phone when it’s plugged into the wall, but it’s not so long that it’s entirely cumbersome. And it’s fairly cheap at $8. They’re the only kind I buy nowadays. - DigitallyCrazy

For a long time I would only buy Apple cables for a long time because the quality of the knockoff ones were so bad that it wasn’t worth the savings. I finally broke-down and got this cable for my bedside; I 100% agree with your nomination. Vote to you. - elpaco13
