Good morning! I've had pretty good luck with apple iPhone lighting cables lasting a long time. However, I've started putting electrical tap on them as they begin to wear out on the ends. I need to order another able $29 bucks so thinking about ordering some cable protectors to use to hopefully extend the life of the cable. Should I just put electrical tap on it right away or should I buy cable protectors? If cable protectors, can anyone recommend a good one? Thanks in advance!
