The Anker PowerLine II Dura Lightning Cable is Ankers's latest offering in Lightning Cables, boasting 5 times the durability of other cables that are available. Being rated at over 12000+ bend cycles, this cable will likely be the last Lightning cable you will need to buy and should last 12x longer than other typical Lightning cables. For this reason, the cable comes with a lifetime warranty with FREE replacement should anything happen to it. The cable is rated to hold/support over 175 lbs. of weight so you can rest assured that this should be more than enough strength for anything you may throw at it.
The cable is Apple MFi (Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad) Certified and will work flawlessly with any compatible device that uses Apple's Lightning Connector/cable format.
The cable came packaged in Anker's typical packaging and came complete with a handy attachable/detatchable hook & loop cable tie. It's always nice when something additional and useful is included.
I received the black colored cable but it is also apparently available in white, blue and red as well. Having a black Lightning cable is quite a change from all of the white Lightning cables that I own and which I am so used to. Color having no effect on performance or usability, it's nice to have something other than white for a change.
The cable is also available in three different lengths: 3ft, 6ft & 10ft (I received the black 3ft length cable). The 6ft and 10ft cables are available only in black and white while the 3ft cable is available in black, white, blue and red.
The cable seems only marginally stiffer but is just as thin and light as Anker's original Powerline Lightning cable. This is quite a surprise since it's 5 times more durable.
The connector ends (USB & Lightning) are slim and should work with pretty much any case that the iDevice is in. Some of the Lighting cables I've used in the past have larger, bulkier Lightning connectors which can be problematic when using certain cases as clearances can be tight. Anker's Lightning connector is very robust and sturdy without adding bulk. The connectors themselves plug in to their respective ports very solidly and will stay put until you decide to unplug the cable.
In summary, the Anker PowerLine II Dura Lightning Cable is a very well-made & durable cable you will be happy to own and use for a lifetime. Well done again, Anker!
