    Currently using cables from Anker (MFI), UGreen and Baseus (not sure if MFI is legitimate for the last 2).

    For chargers, I have a 4-port usb charger from Anker and 4-port from mi at home and UGreen and Baseus for the cars.

    I still bring with me an original cable from Apple as a backup :)

    I've only been using Anker cables and have not taken out the cable included in the box since I got the 6S+. As for the charger, I switch between Apple's wall charger and several Anker multi-ports when charging as well, even in the car.

    I used to use anything that works but I am almost complete in shifting to MFI certified cables. I will likely keep my chargers to whatever works but shifting to more reliable brands like Anker, Aukey, and of course Apple.

    This is happening as I ran into issues with some chargers/cables showing strange behavior on the devices. For instance, I had a charger / cable combo that, while charging, rendered my touch screen unresponsive. Unplugging the iPhone fixed everything.

    I also had another instance where charging an Apple device (Airpods I think) with an original lightning cable (but plugged into a generic USB charging port, would not charge the Apple device.

    I just bought an Anker MiFi Certified Lightning Cable. The build quality seems more robust than the flimsy stock Apple Lightning Cable.

    I like it, it's QI Standard, has 2 charging coils and it also has a built in fan to reduce heat when charging. The only downside for me is that it doesn't include a power adapter, although it came with a micro usb cable.

    Over all I'm very satisfied with it.
