New iPhone, iPad, or AirPods? Get Extra Apple-Certified Lightning Cables for Just $6

anker-lightning-cableFor those lucky enough to find a new iPhone, iPad, or AirPods under the tree today, now is the perfect time to outfit your home, car, work desk, bedside table, or elsewhere with extra Lightning charging cables.

Apple charges $19 for its 1-meter Lightning to USB charging cable, but you can save yourself $13 by purchasing an Apple-certified 0.9-meter Anker Lightning to USB charging cable for just $5.99 on Amazon.

The cable qualifies for free two-day shipping in the United States for Amazon Prime members. Without a Prime membership, free standard 6-8 days shipping in the U.S. is available on orders over $49 in total.

While counterfeit Apple cables and chargers on Amazon are common, and potentially dangerous, Anker claims its cable is certified by Apple under its MFi Program. MFi-certified products have been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards. The Wirecutter, owned by The New York Times, said Anker has the best Lightning cable.

Anker is a great brand. We use a lot of their products at the repair shop I work at, including their charging cables.

More importantly, Anker customer service stands behind their product if there was an issue and will replace without question.

You can find lightning cables for cheaper than Apple charges pretty much any day. And didn't Macrumors recently posted an article saying something like 90% of non Apple chargers fail or don't work properly?
