idevices lightning cable

besides buying from apple store or distributor, where else can we buy quality and fast charging cable?

tried a few brands, few months later has this loosen or random connectivity issues and seems the plain no brand white cable supplied by apple devices is the most lasting ones.

tot of buying same looking white cables from accessories shop, but worry it'll end up the same..

I’m afraid to say, even though I’m a fervent Apple fan, their cable is not of the best quality. I’ll always use Anker. Superb quality with faultless customer service (US).

Apple one still most reliable if used for iTunes backup or upgrade.

Despite Verbatim has been very good for charging, sometime when I do iTunes it will just fails.

Anyone use Amazon Basic lightning? Looks good too.

power support one is good and it comes with matching colours as iPhones.

The space grey one is nice even the cable itself is space grey and not only the connector.

Built is quite nice and solid too.

Iím using the Amazon Braided Cable.
I got it when Amazon Prime first launched in SG. They had a promo for $20 off $50. Paid around $30 for 3 cables after discount. Still going strong after a year of use.

I had enough of problems with Apple lightening cables (S$28/pc, 6 already broken or nearly broken, 2 are still in service with protection sleeves), change to Challenger Valore brand (S$14/pc, 2 broken, 2 retractable one still working as backup use) and now settled on to ugreen 绿联 MFI cable from Taobao (S$9/pc, 1broken, 4 in service and 3 just received). Total 6 devices in use — 5 iPhones and one iPad Mini 1, soon another iPad 2018 will join.

Kids are the main culprit for the broken cables but Apple lightening cables are also pretty weak due to the material used.

Edit to add:
Ugreen is pretty good, top selling brand for MFi cables in Taobao.

Lazada also have. S$9.14/pc
https://s.lazada.sg/s.YoSJ

BTW, do not buy non-MFi cables, got three of them from Challenger and later iOS did not recognise the cable.
