Apple doesn’t enjoy a great record when it comes to charging accessories. The company’s Lightning cables, in particular, seem overpriced and less than rugged.

So, if you want to power up your iPhone or iPad without being super-careful, it might be time for an upgrade. With a braided sheath to protect it, this Vibrance Connect Lightning cable might just last much longer than a stock Apple cord. You can get one today for just $39.99 in a range of eye-catching colors.

More durable than your typical Apple cable

As we know, the folks at Apple like to make pretty things. However, when you take away the stress-relieving parts of a cable for the sake of aesthetics, that cable isn’t going to last as long.

We would argue that the Vibrance Connect cables are much nicer to look at than Apple’s, though. You can even get them in multiple colors. And unlike the cables supplied by Apple, these are made to withstand everyday abuse.

The braided nylon design is very flexible but prevents the cable from being bent sharply or tangled. It also provides physical protection from sharp objects, such as keys in your bag.

Meanwhile, the reinforced connectors are designed to resist fraying. Plus, all Vibrance cables are MFI-certified, and allow data and power to move quickly.

They are pretty long, as well. With 5 feet of cable to work with, you won’t even have to reach under your desk to check your emails. And that’s a massive upgrade for any iOS user on a short leash.

Save on the Vibrance Connect USB-C to Lightning Cable

Considering this Vibrance Connect USB-C to Lightning Cable will probably outlast your current devices, grabbing one for just $39.99 is a no-brainer. You can purchase one today in your choice of seven different colors.
