Apple Now Selling 3-Meter Lightning Cable From Mophie for $30

Apple's online store is now offering a 3-meter USB-A to Lightning cable made by Mophie, adding to the 1 meter and 2 meter Mophie cables that were previously available.

Priced at $30, the new Lightning cable from Mophie features a braided nylon construction and reinforced connectors that Mophie says are designed to stand up to "daily wear and tear," avoiding fraying, breaking, and other issues.


At 3 meters or close to 10 feet, this is one of the longest Lightning cables that Apple offers, and it is ideal in situations where you need to charge but don't have easy access to a nearby outlet.

The 3 meter Lightning cable is Made for iPhone certified and will work with iPhones, iPads, and AirPods. It's available from the online Apple Store starting today, and may be in Apple retail stores in the future.

Apple is also now selling new USB-C cables from Belkin, priced starting at $20. The Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C to USB-C Cable + Strap comes in pink, white, and black, and measures in at 1.2 meters (4 feet).


It also features a durable braided nylon design and is reinforced at major stress points for improved strength. The included leather strap keeps the cable neatly wound up for transport.

Agree. don't waste your money on over-priced cables. Anker is super reliable and less expensive. I've been buying those over OEM cables and I have no regrets.

Both USB-A and Lightning should be replaced by USB-C. Although Lightning is a superior connector in certain ways, fragmenting the connector type isn't just worth it. I really hope to see iPhones and iPads adopt USB-C by next year, as well as Mac input devices (which is even more baffling that they still use Lightning port and include USB-A cable).

I only use MFI cables. Not trying to set my house on fire.

Because no one in China would EVER create fake packaging......

Anker and monoprice have treated us well over the years and at a fraction of the price.
Both of which are MFI certified if I recall.
