    Monoprice just sent out a promo that includes their certified 6’ Lightning cables. The minimum order is $25, but shipping is free and with IPHONE15 you get 15% off.

    So two in black or white for $21.52 to your door, that’s $10.76/ea. I’ve got a couple of the 3’ ones, very nice, well built, and if you have issues, Monoprice has outstanding customer service.

    The _only_ thing I’ve heard negative about these (and the Amazon Basics product), is the housing around the Lightning end is a little larger than the OEM cable, so if your device is using a case with a small cutout for the port, they might not work.

    (FYI, the 6’ also come in blue, yellow, pink and green for $0.64 more)

    Link to the 6’ cables:

    good stuff. I bought my wife one last year when she got her 5s. it was replaced once under warranty (I hardly had to try) and it works perfectly.

    also, from last years model to the current one we got (about 2 weeks ago). the lightning plug and usb plus is a lot smaller (less plastic surround) than previous model. so it may fit cases a little better

    Yeah, I’ve been using Monoprice for years, and only had a couple of return: once because it wasn’t working with my setup (HDMI switcher) and the other time it was a bad HDMI cable that was a few months olds (the latter, they just sent me a new one, didn’t even need to return the faulty one)!

    That’s good to know about the size reduction of the connector, because some of the issues were from older reviews, and likely the larger version.

    :cool:

    same here. I've been using their HDMI cables for years now. I've had 2 go bad over the years out of the wrapper (never while in use) and they sent one in the mail to me the same day. I never had to return the bad ones back either. I've sold my parents on buying their HDMI cables from monoprice along with my in-laws. I still have the old 6' lightning cable that was replaced by monoprice. Some heat sink will keep it in tack and work but I thought i'd give it a try to see if it can get replaced under warranty. it took no effort via help chat with them and I got a new one within a couple of days.
