How is it that a company capable of making such amazing products makes such sucky cables? Even the kindest, most gentlest of use causes them to fray and break, leaving you playing musical cables with your remaining cables or negotiating for emergency cable access when your iPhone is at 5% battery.
Buying iAnything costs a ridiculous sum of money so the pain of repurchasing something that you know sucks is twice as painful. That lead to a search for alternatives and the discovery of the Prime Cables, which are made in Canada for our Canadian readers! Based in Montreal and Vancouver, Prime Cables is a wholesaler of all sorts of cables.
Their nylon-protected USB lightning cables cost less the Apple version and are literally everything proof!
According to Prime Cables web site they are high temperature, wear, corrosion, and pet chew resistant. The nylon outer jacket keeps the cables from tangling and even if you take them with you in the car, they can withstand temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees C and as high as 80 degrees C.
The best feature has to be the larger lightning plug that makes it easier for you to grip onto when unplugging your devices (versus pulling or bending the cord which ultimately leads to its failure). That and the super long version that makes it possible to connect devices in the backseat to the charger in the front.
