Apple is known for great design. The iPhone is a shining example, combining elegant looks and practical features. Unfortunately, less effort has gone into the charging cable for that device. If you are fed up with buying new cables, consider the JunoPower Kaebo Braided Anti-Tear Charging Cable. This durable cable should last for years, and you can get a three-pack now for just $13 at the PopSci Shop.
The official Apple Lightning cable is fairly thin and made from rubber. You can use it for so long without causing damage. But with everyday use, the outer sheath can quickly start to split.
In contrast, the JunoPower Kaebo has a braided cable. This makes it much more durable than the official version, and almost impossible to tangle. At each end of the nylon braid, aluminum connectors provide a solid charging point.
Measuring 3.2 feet long, the JunoPower Kaebo gives you some freedom of movement when your phone is charging. The nylon is very flexible, but it won’t tear easily. When you rely on your phone or tablet for work, this level of toughness is very reassuring.
You can use the JunoPower Kaebo with compatible iPhones, iPads, and iPods. You get exactly the same performance as the official cable, and the slim connectors work perfectly with cases made by Lifeproof, Otterbox, and other brands.
The cable also comes in multiple colors to match the various shades of iPhone. Depending on your style preferences, you can go with classy gold or vibrant red.
