Being a father of a family of five, all of whom are interested in tech and have one or more Apple devices, I can tell you that you can never have enough spare Lightning Cables. Sometimes I wonder if the dogs are getting hold of them, or maybe my kids just have a talent for dispatching them very quickly. Either way, between this and the occasional cable going MIA, we go through a bunch of them in this house.
This special from our Deals site is a no-brainer for Apple users. Apple sells a single 1 meter (3.8 foot) Lightning Cable for a retail price of $19.99. In start contrast, this three pack of 6.5 foot MFi Lightning Cables is only $21.99. Having a three pack will allow you to keep one in the car, maybe one in the kitchen, and stock up for those children who have a habit of losing or wearing out their charging cables more quick;y than we would prefer. I am WELL acquainted with the latter, myself.
If there is one major issue that eventually plagues all of Apple’s first party charge cables, it is that the cover will eventually pull away at the ends, and then the cord will fray and cease to work. This can begin anywhere between the end of year one and somewhere in year two of use, depending on well you take care of them. Don’t even get me started on cheap, third-party, non-MFi cables, either. You are lucky to get three to six months out of one of those.
