[Amazon.ca] Anker USB-C Lightning cable $22.99

Brand new product finally available!
This is regular price, but if you have used Anker products before, you know this is the best cable you can get, and it’s cheaper than Apple’s cables.
Also, this is probably one of the very few 3rd party usb-c cable that will actually work properly with full speed data and fast charge.

So, if you’re current looking for one, this is the best deal available.
Anker $22.99
Apple $25.00

Note: you will also need a PD compatible USB-C power supply to fast charge

Why the downvotes?

I can also vouch for Anker. Have been using their power banks, cables and car chargers for years now and they have all held up fantastically. I’d much rather have Anker cables over Apple’s own

Is a "compatible with power delivery" cable really required for power delivery? Can any old dollar store usbc-lightning cable do it?

Thanks for sharing.

I was expecting a lower price when they announced third-party usb-c to lightning cables... I understand Anker needs to buy from Apple some parts, but still... not much savings at the time of purchase.

At least it's lifetime warranty from Anker for this specific cable...

Sidenote
Anker you must watch out because a lot of their cables are 18 month warranty, not lifetime. I had an Anker lightning cable that did not work well after that period and they are firm about their 18 month commitment and not more. They did offer me 20% off a purchase, YMMV...

$3 price difference is not good enough. Not a hot deal.

A couple other companies should have mfi usb c - lightning cables coming, but the savings in general are pretty mediocre, at least they shouldn’t instantly disintegrate like the OEM ones

Everything that touches an Apple product is overpriced, because resellers know Apple owners will pay accordingly.

Go to eBay or AliExpress, this pricing is out to lunch.

May not be a hot deal but a great alternative. Personally will wait for a sale (which we all know is inevitable with anker). Thanks OP.

Are there reliable cables on there that will deliver the max 18W?

You have a $2000 phone, why use a $2 cable that might damage it? Spend the $20 on the $2000 phone lol

Damage it how exactly? The risk comes from the charger, not the cable. Look up cable-related incidents and phone brickings, they're exceptionally rare to non-existent. You're burning money over a mirage risk.
