I used to use monoprice Lightning cables and they would always start fraying after a few months, even when it was connected to an iPhone dock and not really moving. I thought the fact I can get them longer and less expensive than Apple was worth it. 6 months ago I switched to Anker Durable and Fast with Kevlar Fiber and Double Braided Nylon. Last night I plugged in iPhone before going to sleep and I got lucky it dinged that it was at 20% because it has stopped charging. That was my first experience with Anker and I'm not sure I'll buy from them again. What other brands are out there? I need about a 6ft one due to where the plug is in relation to my bed. Should I just stick with Apple? I went a few pages in and couldn't find any posts on cables. I was surprised, unless these get tossed to the wasteland.
