Anker lightning-to-USB cable
Price: $5.99 and up
Why you need it: So you never have to deal with a fraying cable again
Some of us can live without certain iPhone accessories. A lightning cable is not one of them. It's a daily necessity that has a reserved spot in our messenger bag or desk. Replace your aging cable with this rugged connector, which charges your iPhone at the fastest possible rate and has a heat-resistant design with 4,000+ bend lifespan. Suffice it to say it's built to last much longer than Apple's shiteous cables.
