Apple Certified Lightning Charge + Sync Cable, $18
One of the problems with cheap Lightning cables is that, while they will work fine through an iOS update or two, they will stop working, sooner or later. The great thing about Apple Certified MFi (Made for iPhone) Lightning cables and peripherals is that they work now and will continue to keep working on down the road.
A simple fact of life — cables wear out, get lost and you never know when you’ll need another. While there are lots of cheap third-party cables available, you often get what you pay for — not much.
So grab an Apple Certified Lightning Charge + Sync Cable ($17.99). It is Made for iPhone (MFi) certified and meets Apple’s stringent quality standards.
Of course, it works great with all Lightning compatible iThings — iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPod Touch 5th generation, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini Retina.
Looking for a more complete Lightning charger (the above is just a cable) plus audio solution? Then get the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s Charger + Audio Bundle, $30.
