[The Source] Apple 2M USB-C Lightining Cable $29.72

The Source has the 2m usb-c Apple lightning cable for $31.96 but if you apply the PSP or CAA discount, price falls to $29.72. Not a bad discount as the regular price from Apple is $45.

Normally I buy non-Apple cables, but I’ll be using this for fast charging and would rather spend a couple extra bucks vs have my expensive XS Max phone fry and try to get Apple to cover my loss as a warranty or AppleCare covered loss.

Still expensive for a charging cable, but descent savings vs the regular price.

Not that many left in stores (I was lucky that my local shop had), but seems to be available to order online.

I can’t get the link to work but you can find it on their website.

$30 for a cable are you insane. This is why I don't buy apple products

in 6 months I'd bet a version of a cable like this will be at Dollarama for $4. Now Apple USB-C cables are actually very complaint with USB-PD specs so that's good but ~$30 is still too much.
Always in search of a great deal....

Definitely a ripoff and they don't get great reviews on Apple.ca either. Nevertheless, this is one of the only ways to quick-charge a new iPhone. Silly apple tax!
Yeah - I loaded up on $2 lightning cables from BestBuy in the US this summer from a second tier brand (but MFI certified), but not risking any second tier brands with high capacity charging. Penny wise, pound foolish.

Exactly. Don't cheap out on the cable to charge a $1000-1500 phone.

What is everyone using for their PD wall charger?
I bought a 18W usb c Choetech charger off amazon. I’m draining my phone overnight and I’ll test it tomorrow morning. I hope it works well.

Macrumors reviewed it pretty well, I’ll give the link and hopefully the link works. I couldn’t find any better known brands on sale at the moment, and this was well reviewed and just $21.99 on Amazon (and for some reason no tax).

Aukey wall charger with PD
and OEM USB-C cable
But I bought all the fast charging accessories and found that I just use my wireless charging pad at night and charge lasts all day

this cable is expensive yes but its the only option if youre looking to fast charge your iphone 8 or newer. 3rd party wall adapters work for fast charging but 3rd party usb-c cables dont.
