Armour Charge

Let’s have a show of hands if you are fed up with the Apple lightning charger! Or the Amazon’s one (yes I bought one of those too)! They all seem to get broken and frayed so easily. Either the cable itself got destroyed (especially the part near the jack) or the the actual plastic housing started to crack and disintegrated. At some point I actually had to use duck tape to hold these broken pieces together!

Well I ain’t going through yet another of those traumatic experiences no more, because I had found a much better alternative! And let me tell you, the difference is like heaven and hell, literally!

Say hello to the Armour Charge, a Lightning-USB charging cable made by the folks at [Fuse]Chicken.

Here are why it’s awesome:

1. For a start the cable is wrapped in woven material from 100% stainless steel strands. Yes you read that right! It’s made of metal! Take that Apple! The cable is now almost as strong as Captain America’s Vibranium shield and nearly as indestructible. Yet it is still very flexible, for a metal.

2. Secondly, both the Lightning and USB connectors are sealed with aluminium housing! Not a bloody plastic! This is a massive improvement from the original one. Durability to the max!

3. Finally, the connection between the housings and the cable, this is the weakest link for the Apple lightning charger, is protected with flexible rubbery material. This will prevent the junction to get bent too easily and hence making it less prone to fraying. Hallelujah!

The Armour Charger is an Apple MFi certified product, and hence it works just like the original one, bringing in the charge as well as syncing data.

All of these privileges obviously come with a premium price, of course.

You are paying $34.95 for the 1m version, and $44.95 for the 2m version. There is a 10% off deal by using coupon 10off.

Yes it’s twice the price of the original Apple charger, but it should last you a lifetime, and give you a peace of mind.

Don’t wait, go for full metal jacket with Armour Charge!
