Ideal accessory for frequent flyers
on 18 June 2017
If you travel often, you'll recognise the frustration of finding the plug sockets in your hotel room are nowhere near your bed. This extra-long 3 metre Lightning cable eliminates that problem, greatly extending the reach of your charger.
I use my iPhone as an alarm, and also enjoy browsing social media and streaming TV while I drift off to sleep. However, when staying away from home this isn't necessarily easy. In a typical hotel room, a short Lightning cable will tether me to a distant wall socket. At worst, this means leaping out of bed when the alarm goes off, tripping over as I cross the room in a bleary state, and struggling to disable the alarm without disturbing fellow guests! Not exactly a good start to the day.
This Belkin cable is three metres in length, over twice as long as the standard Lightning cable from Apple. This means I have a much greater radius in which I can use my phone while simultaneously charging its battery. The perfect traveller's companion!
I have owned this cable for a year and a half. Although the Lightning end is starting to bend and flex more than I would like, it still reliably charges my phone night after night. This is not a cheap accessory, but then you pay for what you get. I suspect cheaper cables of this length would show far more wear after this length of time.
This cable is a worthwhile investment to complement your Apple device.
