Packaging is simple and low-key. When you first open the box, it seems like there’s an inner box or something stiff inside.

Sure enough, they come with these fabulous black plastic cable winder/protectors; that’s a very welcome little something extra.

I had to share the backside of the spools because their appeal for you to follow and interact with them on social media is actually pretty cute.

Syncwire says their cables are 30X stronger than others, and that they are built with only premium materials, which means they can “withstand at least 30,000 cycles of 90-degree bend tests and hold up to 275 Pounds/125kg.”

All of Syncwire’s internal wires are wrapped “to prevent friction or fraying, and [their] exterior shells [have] s a smooth finish to prevent [them] from getting snagged or ripped. Laser-welded connectors ensure superior functionality under heavy usage.”

Syncwire UNBREAKcables have nice, narrow ends around the tips, so they will fit into almost every aftermarket case — even the ones that are made to only work with the original Apple cables. This is a very good thing because these cables are made so much better than the Apple version.

The Type-C version works just as well for charging my MacBook as the original.

Best of all, the Syncwire UNBREAKcable cables offer an unconditional Lifetime Warranty with 24/7 email support should you ever need help. Try getting that from Apple; it’s not going to happen.

If you are looking for a durable set of replacement cables, look no further than Syncwire.

The Syncwire UNBREAKcable Lightning and USB Type-C Cables retail for $29.99 (on special now for $16.99 for the Lightning and $14.99 for the Type-C), and they are available directly from the manufacturer.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
