If you got an iPhone or iPad over the holidays, you’ll soon need more than the original cable that came in your box. Why? Because those flimsy white cables are notorious for fraying and falling apart. When you’re ready to buy a more substantial cable, take a look at the new Lander Neve.
Just like the Lander Powell case I recently reviewed, the Neve comes in a reusable water-tight rubber travel case. I really like Lander’s packaging strategy.
The Neve™ Lightning™ to USB cable is compatible with all Lightning-enabled devices, including Apple iPhone®, iPad® or iPod®. All Neve cables feature our signature Illumaweave™ reflective technology that allows for quick location in the dark, and are made of durable nylon in a flat, tangle-free design. This cable is MFI Certified.
Available in red or black, and in 6″ or 3 foot lengths, the Neve is a rugged, tangle-free, flat cable that is miles apart from what you’re used to if you’ve only used the Apple version.
The ends are rubber reinforced, and even though I’ve been using this one extensively for over a month, there’s no hint of fraying.
And of course, there’s the travel box that comes with the Neve; it’s great for keeping small items safely together.
There are plenty of after-market cables available, but the Lander Neve is one of the nicest I’ve tried; the addition of the rubber travel box makes this a can’t miss purchase.
The Lander Neve Lightning to USB Cable retails for $29.99, and it is available directly from the manufacturer and other retailers.
