Anker Powerline+ II 6-Foot Lightning Cable (opens in new tab)

This discount is available in four different colors. The cables are extra-strong and durable, plus MFi certified so they'll work with all of your iOS gear. Your purchase includes a lifetime warranty.

These cables measure six feet long, so there's enough length that you can plug them in behind your couch or across the room and still stretch them to wherever you're sitting. The MFi certification means you won't have to deal with popups saying your accessory isn't supported. They're really durable too, with tensile strength capable of withstanding 175 pounds, plus a 30,000 bend lifespan. Anker is so confident in their performance that the cables are backed with a lifetime warranty. Should you encounter any issues, simply reach out via email and you'll get a replacement. Nearly 2,000 customer reviews (opens in new tab) gave the cables an average of 4.4 out of 5 stars. Your purchase also comes with a handy carrying pouch that can store excess cable length if you don't need to use all six feet at once.

Now that you have an extra cable, what will you use to power it? This tiny portable charger on sale for only $10 might be a worthwhile addition to your cart. One with a bigger capacity is also available at a discount, and its form factor is pretty small as well. You could keep your new cable in your car and pair it with Anker's Roav SmartCharge F0, which is a charger that doubles as an FM transmitter. Alternatively, if you're fed up with using charging cables altogether, you may want to check out this wireless charging pad instead.
