Anker Announces MFi USB-C/Lighting Cables
Anker announced that its first lineup of USB-C to Lighting cables are going to be the best when it comes to cable durability. Apple’s latest charging cables are infamous for breaking really fast and this is where Anker want to come in and provide Apple fans with an alternative.
The Powerline+ USB-C to Lighting will feature a cable that has been encased in an aluminum shell which is reinforced with Anker’s in-house made braided nylon which makes the cable tougher than any charging cable that Apple has to offer.
The accessory maker is also going to launch a second lineup of the cable that is going to be called the standard Powerline. This is also going to be a USB-C to Lighting cable, but the difference, when compared to the first cable, is that it will be covered with aramid fiber for extra strength and bend lifespan.
In fact, Anker is saying that the second cable is going to have a longer bend lifespan of times when compared to other cables available on the market right now.
The last thing that we want to mention about Anker’s new MFi USB-C/Lighting Cables is that they will be available in the 3-foot and 6-foot length models and that the pricing has yet to be revealed.
