I had no idea that finding a replacement cable with Lightning Connector for my smartphone would prove tough. I needed to replace my faulty iPhone charging cable as fast as possible and eventually found a 3rd party replacement that is serving me well.
If you remember, I was asking about SIM card locked iPhones siometime last year. I eventually took the plunge and got myself a used, unlocked Apple iPhone 7 from a Nairaland merchant who made me an offer that was too good to turn down.
I have enjoyed my iPhone so far. The phone came with an old cable that soon became faulty and I needed to replace it urgently. I was already beginning to experience charging issues because of the faulty cable.
Finding a quality, original iPhone Lightning cable was tough. I ran Google searches and came up with a few alternatives. One of the widely recommended best iPhone charger cables were products by Anker.
All the cables I found were available on Amazon or AliExpress, meaning I would have to ship them in and only get them after weeks of waiting. I needed a cable now.
As fate would have it, I am no stranger to Anker, though I had never used their products till now. But I was aware of them because some had been reviewed here on MobilityArena. Mister Mo had mentioned that Swot Solutions is the official Anker retailer in Ikeja, so, I reached out to them to find out if they had any available.
Which Became My Replacement iPhone Charging Cable?
Thankfully, Swot had a model available – the PowerLine II cable and I bought one. Their assurance of a warranty cover for the charging cable helped too, so if there are any issues, I can go back to them.
I have been using it for a week now and my iPhone charging problem is gone. It feels like a quality cable that will serve me well.
This Anker Lightning cable cost me ₦5,000. The testimonies I have read up of Anker cables say they are highly durable. So far,Hopefully so good, this one feels that way. Hooefully, I won’t have any more iPhone charging cable issues for the next few years. Wish me luck.
