    Hey guys

    My lightning usb for my iPhone needs replacing. Before I buy the bog standard one I was wondering if anyone can recommend another charging cable to try. In addition the voltage of the plug I should use( currently in Spain using an adapter for an Ozzie plug.

    In addition, I'm thinking of buying a backup external battery as ios10.3.2 is killing battery time, has anyone got recommendation for this?

    Thanks guys

    Thanks buddy

    I've heard mixed reviews about anker, perhaps because they are so popular.

    2nd Anker for their external battery. I picked one up earlier this year and it's been fantastic so far. As for charging cable, I'm going to rec Native Union. It's a recent purchase for me but based on reviews and my very limited experience so far, it's pretty nice looking & sturdy cable. Plus, it seems like an excellent company for customer service.

    Anker. Powerline II is very durable and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Anytime you're looking at reviews for anything look at trends, not individual data points. You can always find someone griping about something. Are they the norm or the outlier?

    Anker all the way. I'e been using their products for a few years now and you can't go wrong. Their warranty/customer service is fantastic.

    I have never heard mixed reviews for anker unless I saw someone shilling for some inferior battery company.

    Anker is the best value and the best product. A rare thing but great for us.

    I like the mophine power plus XL. It's not the largest power bank but it has the built in lightning and micro USB cable
