Using the right charging and sync cable for your device can make the difference in how it reacts when you are trying to get an effective charge, or need to sync data in a safe and protected way. I will be honest, I have been one of those people who have bought one of those cheap charging/sync cables you can find on eBay and Amazon, and learned the hard way, that they are cheap for a reason. Options? Let’s look at investing in a certified cable instead.
The Lightning Boone XL Cable “James Dean” cable made by the Boone Collection is not only an Apple MFI Certified and Approved Lightning Cable for all versions of iOS it is compatible with the following devices: iPhone6/6plus, iPhone5/5c/5s, iPad Air/Air 2, (4th Gen) & Mini, iPod Touch(5th Gen) & iPod nano(7th Gen).
So let me share with you, that I have spent enough money over the years on cables that burn up, or stop working because of how cheaply they were made, or the fact that they were improperly made because they were not certified.
So what does this cable prove that others don’t? Even though other cables can be certified, that one’s like this one, can be made with quality and assurance that it will work. I love that it is braided, which gives it strength, and the ability to withstand use that other cables might not be able to.
The Boone Collection has cables for iOS, and Android all with the same craftsmanship and braided styling that this cable has. My recommendation, stop investing in inferior cables like I was, and buy one that will last you longer than anything you can buy cheaply on the internet. ~Tom
So do you know if the cable you are using now is certified? Can you trust that expensive piece of tech to an inferior cable? ~Tom
