The day I finally bought myself an extra-long Lightning cable was the day I became a better person. This length of cord allows me to sit where I want and give my phone some juice while also spending way too much time on Instagram. 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 a 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.
Anker Powerline II Lightning Cable
Not only is this 6-foot 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. It 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.
Hi-Mobiler Extra Long Durable Charging Cable
Go one step further and use a charger with a right-angle plug so that the wire stays parallel to the phone, rather than perpendicular. It’s perfect for people that tend to use their phones horizontally to stream shows, play games, or watch Youtube videos.
Deegotech Micro USB Cable
If you’re an Android user, this nylon-braided option will charge your phone with ease. IT has a USB 2.0 for high-speed charging and has been tested strong over 4,000 bends.
