Anker Powerline II USB-C to Lightning Cable
Bought the Anker Powerline II USB-C to Lightning Cable from Amazonfor US$17.99 (S$25). Shipping to Singapore is an additional US$4.51 (S$7).
Two colors are available, black and white.
This is the Powerline II series where the outer cable casing is made of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE).
I am hoping they will bring it to the Powerline+ II series where the cable is braided with nylon fiber.
As with all Anker Lighting cables, this is MFi certified as well.
After three years of use, my Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable started to show signs of its age when the rubber on the cable begins becoming sticky.
In comparison, after two years of use, my Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB-C Cable is still doing well.
So I am confident that the Anker Powerline II USB C to Lightning Cable will be better than Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable.
In terms of pricing, Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable is still cheaper by S$3 at S$29 if you are buying only one Anker Powerline II USB C to Lightning cable from Amazon. This is because the shipping is a fixed cost.
Once you get two or more Anker Powerline II USB C to Lightning cables, it will be cheaper than Apple.
