The Anker PowerLine+ is basically everything you want in a Lightning cable. This premium, nylon-wrapped cable is super durable, comes in a variety of colors and lengths, and it won’t leave you broke. It’s not dirt cheap but even the longest version is a couple of dollars cheaper than Apple’s Lightning cable. It’s not necessarily the cable to get if you’re on a rice-and-beans budget, but you’ll save over Apple’s cable and also get a better-looking and better-performing cable.
The PowerLine+ comes in four colors (gold, gray, red, and white) and four sizes (1 foot, 3 feet, 6 feet, and 10 feet). The slim, round cable is made with ultra-strong aramid fiber and is wrapped in a double-braided nylon sheath. The Lightning connector and the USB plug are housed in tough plastic, which is laser-welded to a more flexible rubbery material at the cable's stress point.
One of the only caveats here is the Lightning connector’s housing—it’s at least a full millimeter larger than the housing around the Lightning connector in the Apple cable, and this could be an issue if you have a snug, waterproof case on your phone. I didn’t have any problems with my waterproof Catalyst case, but there are a handful of other waterproof cases—such as LifeProof’s cases—with smaller port openings that this cable probably wouldn’t fit into.
The Premium Heavy-Duty Charging Cable.
PowerLine+ may be the last cable you'll ever need. Proven to last at least 10 times as long as other cables, it boasts a bend tolerance 10 times higher.It is simply one of the most durable cables, ever.
PowerLine+ is built to withstand any yanking, twisting, stretching, or dropping that it might possibly be subjected to.
Customizable Cable Length
Wind up PowerLine+ and bind it using the adjustable strap for easy transport and storage. It also allows convenient cable length adjustment to avoid trailing cables across the floor when charging.
PowerLine+ Lightning is certified safe by Apple themselves. This means it can be used with any and all of your Apple devices with total peace of mind.
