    I've seen the treads about crappy cables, and the cables people like/dislike.

    my question is, besides the Apple Lightning cable, which ones fit the iPhone without having to remove the case?

    I like the Tech Armor or AmazonBasics cables but it doesn't look like they will fit with my Spigen Neo Hybrid case.

    Thanks!

    I have 3 6ft Tech Armor lightning cables and they work with the spigen tough armor. This one is identical to apples lightning cable and is apple certified:

    Although I don't have the neo hybrid, the amazonbasics fits with my ultra hybrid. The amazonbasics cable end isn't as big as it looks in the pics IMO. I want to say I thought I read in the amazon reviews for their cable that a person said it fit with the neo hybrid but not 100% sure.

    How are the IXCC cables holding up?

    I need a 6-footer, preferably in black, small connector, somewhat rapidly (Prime).

    I can't seem to find the Tech Armor 6-ft on Amazon. Only the 2-ft version appears. I know A9's search sucks, but I still don't think it's currently listed.

    I also wonder if Apple has relaxed their rules about the connector size. There seem to be more and more MFi cables out there with a slim connector just like Apple's.

    I recommend these black 6ft lightning cables:
    RND Apple Certified 8-Pin Lightning to USB cable (6 feet/black) made for iPhone (5 / 5S / 5C) iPad (Air / Mini) iPod Touch

    Thanks, I was gravitating toward the IXCC after not finding the TA.
