    I'm looking to buy one to replace the original apple one, which has begun to tear.

    After researching online it seems none of them are particularly good.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? I don't mind buying a "premium end" one provided it is at the very least better than the original.

    Many thanks.

    Look into Anker Powerline+ on Amazon. I have stocked up on their, premium cable at a reasonable price. I haven't had to use their warranty but many other users here saying they stand behind it ;-)

    I currently have an anker one. It's lasted almost a year which is twice as long as any of the Apple ones have lasted.

    Exactly!

    The anker ones are around £6 on Amazon. Apple ones are £25 it's a no brainier.

    I've had plenty that tore on me. I bought a 10 foot Belkin two years ago for use in bed and it has withstood the test of time and torture. YMMV but I'm very happy with it.

    Or try leather covered cables from Aliexpress. I use 20 cm long one with my power bank and everything is ok. Never had problems with "unsupported accessory " or low charging rate.
