Looking for a tough Lightning cable? Moshi has just the thing for you

Moshi makes some great accessories for the iPhone and the iPad, and their latest is no exception. Lightning cables are always a handy commodity to have around, but Moshi has done something a little different with theirs. They've encased them in aluminum.

Moshi claims that their new USB to Lightning cables are "almost indestructible," so definitely worth a look if you're the sort of person who keeps breaking plastic things. Better yet, Moshi's cables cost only $20, just $1 more than the Apple Lightning cables, making them extremely good value for money. The cables are available in black as well as a white and silver option, and are available to order from Moshi now.

Are you one of those people who would love a rough and tough Lightning cable? Will you be picking one of these up?

Looking for a tough Lightning cable? Moshi has just the thing for you


I don't know where you've seen a $19 lightning cable, but everywhere around me has them for $19.99 so this makes the Moshi only a penny more expensive. Might be worth looking into.

It is $19.
But why not make one 2m long and price it at $25. I'd buy two immediately
I have a 10ft cable I use it's too long but works fine

It should say extremely good value for THE money, just a heads up.

I can't remember the last time I paid $20 for a cable and felt it was a good value. Every time I've been stuck in a situation where I had to pay a premium for a cable, I sure didn't feel good about it.

I don't see why they have to make cables so short. I can use mine without a USB extension. Do they expect people to practically leave their phone on the wall?
