Why You Should Use a Certified MFi iPhone Charger
The importance of using a Good Quality iPhone Charger that doesn't damage your iPhone or iPad
By: Simply Cables
That said, there is one kind of cable you have in your home that is the exception to this rule - and for many people, it is the most important: your iPhone charger cable. When it comes to these 'lightning' cables, the cheapest, flimsiest options on the market are just not going to cut it, and they can actually harm your phone.
MFi certified lightning cables - an expensive racket? Absolutely not.

These cheap, knock off cables are designed with no regard for customer satisfaction, usability or longevity. The same thing happens time and time again: you plug it in, and it works fine. The next day, it is a bit finicky, but you can jiggle it into place and with a hope and a prayer, it will eventually work - until it is jostled and stops charging. Within the week, it is completely dead and has to go in the bin. No signs of fraying, no threadbare wires - just a completely useless cable.
At best, this is an inconvenience. At worst, it can cause anxiety and panic as you rush around your home frantically looking for a working charging cable.
Cheap cables can damage your phone
In addition to wasting your time and causing you stress, a cheap lightning cable can damage the U2 IC battery components of your iPhone 5 or 6, frying it and necessitating a replacement. This can cost you a lot of money - and give you a massive headache.
The solution? Authentic Apple or otherwise MFi certified lightning cables

If you want to stop this cycle of cheap cables, panicked inefficiency and wasted time, you simply need to ensure that you are purchasing authentic lightning cables in the first place. Invest a tiny percentage more than you usually do on cheap cables, and you will be rewarded with reliability and peace of mind. Happy charging!
