The day I finally bought myself an extra-long Lightning cable was the day I became a better person. Not only is this 6ft. Anker cable double the length of the one you get when you purchase an iPhone, it’s also more than half the price of a cord of the same length, at around $10. Invest in a charging cable that includes reinforced internal wiring and promises to “withstand over 12,000 bends” so there’s no more dealing with a split coating and fraying wires from watching your friends’ Instagram stories on the couch in your pajamas. I keep the 6ft version next to my bed so I can move around without worrying about yanking the plug out of the wall. For the couch, I upgraded to the 10ft cable so I can hide it behind the couch without it getting jumbling up at my feet or caught in the pass of a vacuum.
