    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.
