Pretty much every hotel room I stay in has its outlets in the most inconvenient location possible. That means that I usually end up with my iPhone dangling from some hidden outlet behind a piece of furniture – after I unplug whatever lamp was connected before. Usually, this means that my phone is stuck in such an inconvenient place, that there’s no way to use it while it’s charging. What I need is a nice long extension cable like this one.
This 10-foot-long Lightning cable from TRNDLabs is not only durable, it’s tangle-resistant thanks to its braided jacket. And these cables are MFi-certified, complete with Apple’s required auth chip inside them, so they’ll work for charging and syncing without a hitch. Cheap, uncertified cables have been known to have issues with syncing, and can also overheat.
This cable is normally priced at $30, but we’ve got it for a limited time in the Technabob Shop for just $19.99(USD). It’s available in grey, black and white or red.
