    Hey I saw a picture of a champagne color lightning cable on here about a month ago. Anyone know where I can find it?

    I love TechArmor products! I've used their screen protectors and cases many times. I've ordered TA and an Amazon Basics cable, one for the office and one for home/car.... let's see which lasts the longest. The problem I was having wasn't really that they were ripping apart....I felt like the lightning ends, thhe metal connectors that is, were deteriorating, causing random connects/disconnects...

    I ordered Amkette Lightning Cable from Amazon and they work perfectly fine for me with charging and syncing. These cables would be great for dock connectors as they also require a lightning usb cable to be used and affordable too.

    I don't see the TA cables lists on amazon for on their homepage anymore. I do see a few 2ft cables but no 6.

    Bought the 6' Amazon Basics lightning cable. Love it so far, and the extra length is always nice. Only downside is that the lightning charger is a bit thick, so it might not fit in some cases, mostly waterproof ones.

    I sent an email to Tech Armor and here is the update.

    We recently upgraded our Apple Lightning cables to a braided cable that is higher quality and will be available again the first week of September and the listings will go live again. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Cheers,
    Tech Armor Support

    Just learned of some called awesome cables, they are braided 6ft cables and are apple MFI certified and works with any and all cases. They cost $25 and they are constructed in such a way that they shouldn't come apart/frey/turtle neck the way the apple cable does. I may give these a try.

    I brought this Moshi Lightning cable at Powermac. I used it for just a month. After I charged my iPad. The tip of the lightning cable stacked in the charging port of the device. I return it to the store, but they didn't give me my 6 month warranty. Do not buy Moshi lightning cable. I wasted my 900 pesos on this cable.

    Apple cables have lifetime warranty. I always replace mines at the Apple Store almost every year.

    That's along that you have a recent device, they assume that you just got it. It come with a year of warranty I believe.

    I have been returning Apple chargers for over 4 years. No fuss. They give you new one on the spot. I usually do it every 2 years when I get my new phone. I usually hand them 3 to 4 chargers and always never had any fuss to exchange.

    FWIW, the 2m lightning cables are slightly thicker and more durable than the standard 1m cable, though it is a fair bit more expensive.

    My personal solution was to buy the official Apple Lightning>USB adapter, then find a good sturdy USB cable. I just used the cable that came with my PS4 for the controller.

    MUCH more durable than any standard Apple cable.
