Stock up on Lightning cables with Anker's USB-A and USB-C versions discounted for a limited time

There's no such thing as too many charging cables, especially if you use the Apple-provided Lightning cable that's bound to break after a few months. Fortunately for you, Anker is offering discounts on both its PowerLine II USB-A to Lightning cable (opens in new tab) and its PowerLine II USB-C to Lighting cable (opens in new tab). There's no coupon to apply; the prices you see at Amazon are already reduced for the white version of each cable. Shipping is free with Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) and you're going to want to make sure you are signed up ahead of Amazon Prime Day if you're not already.

Regardless of which option you go for, you'll be getting a 6-foot long cable that is MFi-certified so it will work perfectly with your iPhone or iPad. That's twice the length of the standard Apple cable (opens in new tab) and costs less. The USB-A model (opens in new tab) is down to just $9.99 from its usual $15 going rate and the USB-C model (opens in new tab) is just $15.99, down from $20. These prices are lower than we've seen either of them go directly before.

An added benefit of the USB-C cable is its support for fast charging. With a compatible wall charger (opens in new tab) it will power up an iPhone 8 or newer from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes. Both cables are extremely durable and have been designed to withstand over 12000 bends so they'll last longer than the standard Apple option. Plus, they're backed by a lifetime warranty so they may well be the last cables you ever need to buy.
