The best iPhone charger cables are a little more expensive than the cheap-as-chips ones you might find in a discount store, or in the murky depths of eBay. But they'll almost certainly be more reliable, last longer, and give you faster charging speeds. So given the amount of time we spend using our iPhones, it's well worth spending a small amount of extra money to get a big boost in quality.

The cables we list below are well made, will last for years, get your iPhone charged up quickly, and give you enough length to maneuver.
