For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Anker. For those of you unfamiliar with Anker, the company has a lot of fans on the MacRumors forums and across the Internet (check out their Facebook page) thanks to its wide range of inexpensive, quality products. For our giveaway, Anker is providing 20 MacRumors readers with its new super durable 3-ft PowerLine Lightning cables paired with a 3,350 mAh PowerCore+ mini external battery.

Anker's PowerLine Lightning cables are designed to be ultra durable, built with bulletproof Kevlar fiber with reinforced stress points to hold up to daily abuse. Unlike Apple's cables, Anker's aren't going to tear, fray, or otherwise break. Anker says these have a 5000+ bend lifespan, making them more durable than other cables on the market.

The PowerLine cable uses dual-layer sheathing with an inner layer of braided copper that's thicker than what's used in OEM cables to reduce cable resistance. According to Anker, its cable offers the fastest possible charge and sync speeds with any USB charger. The Anker PowerLine cable comes in 3-foot lengths for $9.99 and 6-foot lengths for $14.99, with both available in multiple colors.

Anker's also giving away its classic tube-shaped PowerCore+ mini, a portable 3,350 mAh battery with enough power to charge up the iPhone 6s to full and add quite a bit of extra juice to the iPhone 6s Plus. Anker's PowerCore+ mini is available for $9.99. Along with these two products, Anker sells a whole slew of useful accessories for charging Macs and iOS devices that are worth checking out on Amazon.
