    Folks,

    Over the years, in an effort to find a good Apple Lightning cord, I have tried MANY cords. As many of us know, the original cord, that comes with our devices, wears out quickly. While initially I liked and was using an Amazon Basics lightning cord, a recent design change has made them less reliable.

    Well I think I have found the perfect lightning cord from Aukey. I already know the Aukey brand, and have been using their power products for years. (Hubs, chargers, external batteries, etc), BUT I just discovered their lightning cables.

    The cable has a great design. It's made from braided nylon, and the ends are reinforced with strong metal. The ends are also on a 90 degree angle, and this makes them plug in easier, has enhanced stability, AND make the device (especially an iPad) much easier to use with the cord plugged in. I had no issues with cord use, as is SOMETIMES the case with 3rd party cords. I did not receive the dreaded "This Cable is Not Certified and May Not Work Reliably" message.

    I can definitely recommend this lightning cable! You'll find it at Amazon....

    Those connectors, on both ends, look unpractical for my use case.

    As a practical matter for me, they work well. I often use my iPad in the upright, or vertical position, when reading magazines for example OR playing a certain game. (ok it's Clash Royale and I'm totally addicted). With this cord it's MUCH less in the way. Also I feel the cord forms a more stable connection to the device. I wasn't convinced either UNTIL I started using it.

    Those look pretty tough. May have to give one a shot.

    I like that about them. They don't seem like they're annoying if you're using your phone while charging.

    Same thing I was thinking.

    Looks like a tough fit with a bulky case
