One of the worst aspects about carrying a bunch of cables around is the fact that they tend of tangle. They also tend to not be long enough in the most crucial of situations. The Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable comes to the rescue in these types of situations. How does it stack up? Find out in the full review after the break!
Most lightning cables come in universal lengths ranging from 3 to 4 feet. This will suffice for most situations but in cases where you really need the extra length, the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable is 9.8 feet long and serves any purpose quite well. We tested the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning cable in our car entertainment system and we never had any reach issues. With the added cord length, we were even able to use the iPhone 6 Plus in the back seat of the car comfortably.
The other great design feature of the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable is the flat cord design. With other braided or cylindrical cables, once in our travel bags they were usually prone to getting tangled. With the flat design of the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable, tangling was never an issue. In fact, once we pulled out the flat cable, it would almost roll itself out in most situations.
Lastly, the one issue we experienced with other cable designs is a larger connector. This tended to restrict the type of cases we could use with our iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. However, with the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable, we never experienced this issue as it was one of the smallest connectors we have ever tested (besides the Apple lightning cable).
Overall, the Mophie Premium Lightning cable served its purpose well and we never experienced any issues with it at all. The cable itself felt very durable (one of the most durable we have ever tested), and the unique long cord length pretty much made the cable a must have for our travel bags. If you’re looking for a great alternative lightning cable that is durable, won’t get tangled, and will reach almost anywhere, the Mophie Premium Flat Lightning Cable is the cord for you.
