    What's your recommended brand for a non-apple lightning cable thats: fully compatible for charge and sync, very sturdy, lower cost than Apple's?

    Anker. It's currently 777 pesos but in 2 days, for the mid-year sale, it's only 350 pesos.

    Anker. The longer ones are more ruggedized.

    Anker is now my second favorite.

    UGreen now takes the #1 spot in my cable and charger list. Way cheaper but same quality with Anker.

    At home, the anker 6 foot cable.
    For travel, the fuse chicken shield (chain mail) cable or the armor charge. Both are a lot lighter and more flexible than the heavy stiff fuse chicken titan cable, but just as durable.

    I have been using Anker cables ever since i have read thewirecutter's review on the product. I also got my usb chargers from Anker because of these guys. They used to tear down wires/chargers to see how they were constructed, but now they grew tired of it.
    https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-lightning-cable/


    Now, i'm looking for super cheap lightning/usb cables that are durable (these cables will be used in a common area) I personally use Anker and still take extra care using them, but since it will be a common area, that would not be applicable. Ankers durability can only go so far.

    I will look into the suggestions above; ugreen and miniso. I have heard good things about miniso chargers also.

    Do you have other suggestions for dirt cheap cables?

    Momax lightning to USB-C cables are comparable if not the same with the apple lighting to USB-C cables. Using it for 6 months and it's still working

    Miniso chargers last as long as they aren't pulled from their sockets. There...

    To hell with lazada! There are two official Romoss LazMall Stores on their site. One Flagship Store and the other is a Certified Store.

    Sturdy and reasonably priced?

    Get a Stanley or CAT... these were made with "being used on a construction site" considered. They're tough... they sell quality, not name.

    You should be able to grab one from a local Wilcon home depot, or the likes.
