If you’ve got a shiny new iPhone 7, then you’ve probably already noticed that the cables that come from Apple simply don’t hold up; whether they are fraying at the connectors or they’re getting weird kinks in them, their design is… not great. If you’re ready to upgrade, take a look at the Just Mobile AluCable Flat with Lightning Connector.
The secret to what makes these cables so great is a combination of a thick, flat, no-tangle cable and slim aluminum encased Apple-certified MFi connectors.
Each cable is 4′ long, which is a great length for the top of your desk or in the car. If you’re using the cables at your desk, you’ll find that they work very well with the Just Mobile AluCharge.
The slim connector on the Lightning end ensures that the cable will work with just about any case, so if you’ve tried other aftermarket cables and found they didn’t work with your favorite case, you should be good to go with this one. Best of all, these cables cost about the same as Apple replacement cables, which are slightly shorter and poorer quality.
I’ve been using Just Mobile cables for years, and I’ve never had one fray; I’ve never had one break. Just Mobile makes some of the best cables you can buy, and I can’t recommend them enough.
The Just Mobile AluCable Flat Cable with Lightning Connector retails for $19.95, and it is available directly from the manufacturer or from other retailers including Amazon [affiliate link].
