We've organized a special discount for io9 readers on this epic lightning cable. How can a lightning/usb cable be epic? When it's 10 feet long, that's how. Now, you can easily charge your phone from the backseat, or across the room for that matter. io9 readers can get one with free shipping for 52% off – just $18.99.
If 10 feet seems like overkill, consider those long drives when people in the backseat can't charge their phones. The 10 feet also come in handy in cramped office environments and when your favorite café needs to becomes a charging station. Just as importantly, the quality of this Lightning cable is first rate — it lives up to Apple standards, and has MFi certification to prove it.
Just to double-check, these are the devices with Lightning connectors:
- iPhone Models: iPhone 6, iPhone 6+,iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s
- iPad Models: iPad w/Retina display, iPad mini, iPad mini w/Retina display, and iPad Air
