Kenburg LightLinez Short USB to Lightning Cable: When I’m traveling, I often charge and sync my iPhone with my MacBook, so I don’t need a 3-foot cable that just adds more clutter to my bag. This $19, five-inch (12cm) USB-to-Lightning cable is Apple-certified and gives me just enough length to connect my iPhone to a USB port on my laptop. When I’m ready to go, the cable is easy to tuck away. And if you occasionally need a longer reach, Kenburg includes a 39-inch (100cm) extension cable. The cable itself feels sturdy, and it includes reinforced strain relief around each connector.
