Choosing third-party accessories over official Apple products can save you a ton of money in the long run, though you want to make sure you pick out something dependable at the same time. Take this 5-pack of IDiSON Lightning Cables for example. They're MFi-certified and normally priced at $20 as a set, right around what a 6-foot Apple Lightning cable would cost you. However, using code K5GPM99X during checkout will drop its price to just $9.99 while supplies last. That means you'd be scoring these cables for only $2 apiece, saving you 50% off their usual cost.

IDiSON's Lightning cables are MFi-certified to meet Apple's standards for charging iOS devices, so you won't have to worry about them not working as they should. There won't be any annoying popups saying that your accessory isn't compatible with your device either. These cables are built to last, featuring a braided-nylon fiber jacket and aluminum alloy connectors which resist heat and corrosion. Plus, their lifespan is rated at over 5000 bends, which is pretty durable for something you're paying $2 for. Each cable in the pack is a different length so you can use them how you see fit. You'll also receive a one-year warranty with today's purchase.
