    Basic accessories at decidedly premium prices. Since when does the mophie brand name command such prices for “basic charging accessories”?

    They might sell fine, but not to me. $20 for 1m charging cables? No thanks. Charging pad (Anker $20) and especially the car chargers (Anker $10 for 24W dual) are overpriced as well, imo.

    I haven’t used it so I can’t recommend it specifically, though in general I have had good experiences with Anker accessories.

    It’s a brand new product, out of stock at Amazon atm.

    And we need this why, anyone hear of Amazon even without prime it arrives in 2 days. Worth waiting to save more.

    Does Wireless charging pad include charging adapter? If so, $39.95 isn't a bad deal, especially coming from Mophie.

    You can get a 4 pack of lightning cables on amazon now for $8, lol.

    Personally I stay away from no-name cables but the ones I buy are still a lot cheaper than these mophie ones. For instance I just paid $12 for a 3m long Anker cable. Certified MFi and I don’t have to worry I’ll burn the house down :eek: For the same reason, I only buy Apple charging adapters. I’ve only got older devices so I’m using the 12W charger, it’s worth $19 (to me) and the charging speeds are decent with a 6s and iPad mini 4.

    That's fantastic. The downside is that they don't make a USB-C to Micro-USB cable, and I'd say about 95% of the wireless car chargers are all Micro-USB.

    Yeah as long as it’s MFi certified, get the cheapest ones you can get. Even if you get a 4 pack on amazon and they break quickly, you can get 2 packs of that and it’ll still be cheaper than one Mophie. I doubt it lasts longer than 8 cheap cables.

    The only cables I've ever had trouble with have been the 'slim head' Dock cables. Generally speaking, I only buy Apple and Anker.

    That doesn't take into account cat teeth, however.
