There are forever friends, forever rings, and even My Tamagotchi Forever, but “forever” is not usually a word you hear associated with tech gadgets. And although a “Forever iPhone” is clearly not happening in this millennium, we can finally get our hands on a forever lightning cable.
Look inside your purse, backpack or briefcase, and you’ll probably find a lightning cable or two — and for good reason. Whether you want to power up your iPhone or upload your latest photos onto your computer, a cable makes even the most mundane tasks a breeze. But while lightning cables are incredibly useful, they have a short shelf-life. Take a closer look at your cord, and you’ll notice its frayed edges and the occasional wire popping out of the coating. It’s all fun and games until one day it conks out for good when you need it most.
TAMO’s Forever cables are different. Unlike most options on the market, which are often coated in flimsy and unreliable plastic or nylon, these cables are steel-coiled so they can endure any twists, bends and wear-and-tear.
Each one is MFi-certified, meaning they’ll work with your iPhone, iPad, or Apple computer without causing damage. Another cool perk: the steel-coiled coating keeps the cables from getting tangled, which save you time and the frustration of having your cables in a bunch. And if aesthetics are a concern, TAMO’s cords come in four stylish colors, including a trendy rose gold.
These cables are usually $40, which isn’t that much considering you’ll have ’em for the rest of your life — or at least until Apple finds a way to abolish cables altogether. But if you want to take advantage of a great deal, you can currently buy them for $27.99 each.
