Lightning cables are like socks. They wear out, often get lost, and occasionally go through the washing machine. Today's your chance to fix some of those issues (mainly the cable-related part) with a one-day sale on Anker Powerline Lightning cables. Not only are Anker's cables more hard-wearing than Apple's own — with a reinforced, aramid fiber construction — they are also almost twice as long at 6 feet. And they are also much more affordable, especially when on sale.

Anker Powerline Lightning cable

This three-pack of Anker Lightning Cables could be yours for just $17 today, which is a far cry from the price of Apple's official Lightning cable. These are just as capable of charging and data transfers, so why not give them a shot?

With coupon: ANKER3PKL

Right now, you can pick up a 3-pack for just $16.79 when you enter promo code ANKER3PKL during checkout at Amazon, bringing the cost of each cable to around $5.60 apiece. For that price, you'd only get one of Apple's official Lighting cable and even then it would be a paltry 1 meter in length. You can use the Anker cables for anything you would normally use Apple's for — charging, syncing, jump rope — and get exactly the same results thanks to its MFi certification.
