    I am always leery about buying third party USB charging cords because of people say they are good for your iPhone other then the Apple Store ones. Does anybody recommend any?

    Check for MFi (Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad/Apple Watch) when buying third party accessories. For charging accessories including cables, I recommend Anker.

    I have just stuck with branded charging cables over the years. What ever the brand of the device is...is the brand I use. It just gives me a peace of mind so to speak.
