Re: Author has more snark than knowledge
So you've only ever bought the one lightning cable then? Famed for their durability!
And you've only bought the one Micro USB that came with an Android device?
Lighting cables are no less (or more) durable than Micro USB. They're about the same price (five-packs of them in assorted lengths are $10-15 on Amazon). I'm not clear on what your objection is here.
