Purchase this back in Aug 2020...2 weeks ago the lightning head just came off...customer service sent a new one to me with a braided nylon wire.

This model is basically discontinued...I guess they are clearing stock


The wire is thick as f...pity the head was a dud

The page claims "What You Get: Anker PowerLine II (6ft including both ends), a hassle-free lifetime warranty and friendly customer service."

If they replace this cable with a braided one that is a better deal! Thanks for the tip.

I have had Anker cables replaced, but never upgraded

That seems to be backwards logic. The braided one should last longer so it would be in their interest to warranty it longer.

Can confirm Anker has great customer service and warranty process. Have bought over 20 cables from them. Got one dud, but they sent me a new cable no hassle.

I have one of the original PowerLines that I bought in 2016, it's a little yellow but not as much as the Apple OEM cables yellow.

Thanks for the update. I have about a dozen Anker cables, but no white ones! Im not surprised to find out they hold up better than the Apple ones in this way

It's not uncommon for one color of something to be on sale and not the other.

Sometimes it's because they have too much stock of one color and they want to clear out the excess stock. Sometimes, one color is more popular and there is more demand. If you were a manufacturer and one color is really selling well and people are paying full price, why would you discount it and lose money?
Look at clothes, usually the unpopular colors and sizes are the ones in the clearance rack.

For other products...in some cases, sometimes a different color is actually more expensive to manufacture. It requires a different process, or special coating or paint. Pearl white paint is a lot more expensive to buy for example. Sometimes coatings are different with different colors.

Lastly, some colors are marketed as more "premium". For example, sometimes you charge more because the color is marketed as the high end version. If all your products are normally white, maybe you can market the dark color as upmarket "special edition" model. It's an easy way to make more money if you can pull it off.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
