    So got in my Jeep today and my lightning cable plugged into my USB port the lightning end the insulation was shredded. Time for a new cable. Looking for something a bit more rugged than the stock one that comes with the phones. Any recommendations for ones that won't cause any issues but maybe have a more rugged jacket on them? Preferably available on Amazon but it's ok if they're not but from a reputable 3rd party. I don't need a long one, 2-3 feet min/max. Well, maybe 3 in case I ever get a mount.

    I have taken to using the Anker cables with the woven nylon casing, about 8 months now and no sign of wear,no Apple cable ever lasted that long with me.

    Another vote for Anker.

    I've gone through quite a few lightning cables as well. Like @Wotchered and @Lee_Bo, I have found that Anker cables are the best. And the price isn't too bad either. And they're priced rather competitively as well. I also agree that the cables in the woven nylon casing are much more durable.

    I have always used Anker nylon cables, purchased reasonable from Amazon.

    Thanks! I've used other stuff from them before looks like I'll go that route then.

    Thanks, that's what I ended up throwing in the Amazon cart. The one with the nylon sheath on it as well. Rated for something like 30,000 bends.

    I’ve been using the same cables for a few years with no issues. The cables from my X & 8 are still in the box LOL. With that being said, my kids use Anker & Belkin.
