Apple has recently opened the USB-C to Lightning MFi certification program, and we have seen an increasing number of vendors looking for their own offering on the fast charging market. UGREEN was one of the first to launch its inexpensive Lightning USB-C braided nylon cable recently. You can save on it for a limited time by entering code UGDEC759 while checking out at Amazon. You’ll get it for just $8.50 in combination with an extra Amazon Prime savings. If you’re not a member of the Prime, it’s only going to be $1 more.
Being MFi-certified means that this cable passes all the safety tests Apple requires to charge your device properly. It usually sells for $12.59, which is already quite amazing, and the price drop today is its best discount ever.
The cable is equipped with a robust braided nylon case with reinforced connectors to avoid overbending tangles and damage. It also works for high-speed data transfers up to 480Mbps as well as supporting fast charging. If you’ve upgraded to a new MacBook and no longer have a full-size USB-A port, these cables are a must have. At this price, just keeping around the house, at the office, and in your various travel bags is worth grabbing a few.
