The latest rumors suggest the next iPhone will still support Lightning cables, so it looks as though Apple’s long-established cords will remain relevant for at least another year. That also means it’s a good time to check out ZeroLemon’s popular 10-foot-long USB-to-Lightning cables, which are on sale at Amazon for just $7.99. The retail price for these cables is $40, but Amazon’s prices tend to hover around $15 to $26.
Long Lightning cables are great when you want to charge your iPhone on your nightstand even though the socket may not be in a convenient spot. They also make it easier to charge your iPhone or iPad when you’re reading or working on those devices at a chair that’s not close to a wall.
ZeroLemon claims this cable is one of the longest MFi (Made for iOS)-certified Lightning cables on the market, and I certainly believe it. This white model looks a lot like Apple’s own cables, but it’s made with a “white premium PVC material” with a round attachment on each end that keeps the material from fraying like Apple’s counterparts. According to ZeroLemon, the cable can withstand up to 6,000 bends.
In addition, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee and a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Most customers seem happy with it, as it has a rating of 3.7 out of five stars after 3,908 user reviews. Many of the highest-upvoted reviews say this is “hands-down” the best Lightning cable they’ve ever purchased, with most of the praise going to its durability and dependable charging. You’ll find a few customers who say the cables didn’t work at all, but these appear to be a smallish minority.
