BLUPEAK 30CM APPLE MFI CERTIFIED LIGHTNING TO USB CABLE - BRAIDED BLACK, (LIFETIME WTY)
$13.00 (exc. GST)
While Apple has integrated wireless charging into its phones since iPhone 8, you still get a Lightning cable in the box with your phone. And plenty of companies produce such cables, if you're looking for, say, a different color or length than Apple's default. However, not all Lightning cables are created equal. If you're buying a Lightning cable for your iPhone, iPod or iPad, make sure it is MFi-certified.
For starters, an improper cable can damage your device. This could be as simple as scratching the contacts in your charging port, or as serious as damaging the battery. You could also damage the cable itself, causing it to overheat or even break at the connector. If you're lucky, the cable will just not fit in your device, or you'll notice that it isn't charging it properly. Either way, it's not worth the risk.
