Anker 6ft Powerline+ II Lightning Cable Review

I bought this Anker PowerLine+ II Lightning Cable (6ft) on a lightning deal from Amazon for £9.09. The current price is £12.99. It seems to be of decent quality and I’m recommending this one.

Buy this from Amazon UK - This link contains an amazon referral link which helps me to buy more power banks to test.

In the box

Obviously the cable is contained in the box. It feels solid, nicely braided outer sheath and good strain relief on both ends of the cable.

The USB A and lightning ends.

There’s also card with support information and a nice case to keep the cable in. Handy if you’re going to be taking it somewhere in a bag.

The carrying case.

Cable test

At 2.1A this cable drops 0.45 volts, or 9% of the power flowing through it. For a 6 foot cable this is pretty good. The best of my 3 foot official Apple cables lose just over 10% and they’re half the length.
