Amazon, I just ordered a 6 ft tech armor braided cable yesterday for 14.95 through Prime. Here's the link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DZ0JAMG/ref=pe_385040_30332200_TE_item
Lowest price is $12.02 and go up depending on length/material.
Edit: They have some 3ft ones on sale for $9.67 as of this posting.
These are MFI certified, best alternative I've found.
I picked up a couple of these a couple of weeks ago, had a 10% off, free shipping, so $10.88 each to my door.
Build seems at least as good as Apple, the housing around the Lightening connector is a little bigger, so its easier to hold/remove, but if youre using a thick case with a really tight cutout, it might inhibit plugging in.
Like that theyre available in black too. I wish theyd offer the multicolor in 3 (vs. only in 6)
This is where I got them, thanks
did not know they were doing free shipping now (that is nice)
I got two on ebay a couple weeks ago for $8 each. Certified too which was surprising. They work perfectly.
my only complaint with the amazon ones the cords are stiff and that can cause some issues.
I just heard about this ebay deal today and bought one -- certified, free shipping, $8.99. 3ft Apple Lightning cable. Cheaper than the $19 MicroUSB to Lightning adapter I was gonna buy on Friday (since I have a ton of old micro USB cables lying around).
The Tech Armor braided is the best deal. Lifetime warranty. Stout design.
Monoprice is also lifetime but not built that well.
Interesting. The editor for the Lifehacker article that mentioned it said it was certified. If it charges my device, it's fine with me.
Thanks for the tip, just ordered 2. One can never have too many lightning cables.
Since Apple doesn't sell oem or in bulk, it is probably a very good third party cable. Worth a shot at $9.
I back you. I love tech armor cables. I have 4 of the old versions, they still look new!
We've used the Mono price cords for about three months now. They work great. The only thing I don't like about them is that they are a little stiff. On the other hand, they come in several different colors.
Not sure how good this is or isn't, but with a 4 star rating and 263 reviews, must work pretty well. Came out to $14.99 on Prime and has a nice led indicator at the end of the phone portion of the connector that blinks red when charging and stays blue when charged.
I just need a cable for charging on the go, so no need to quick charge, which this cable does not do.
I bought a couple of these from Amazon by Tech Armor...
Not Apple Certified, I recommend not getting.
Don't really care if it says Apple Certified or not. It's a cable used for charging on the go and nothing more.
You risk damaging your phone and the cable may or may not work upon firmware releases. To each their own though.
Well, a 4 star review with 300+ reviews seem to give this cable the benefit of the doubt. Besides, T-Mobile covers any damage.
I bought 2 of these, MFI, 6ft, Lifetime Warranty, 7.99. Nice thick cable and works well so far.
A future update could block the cable from being used. That's why it should be MFi.
