Cheap Lightning cables started showing up around the time that the authentication chip was hacked, but they weren’t very prevalent. Now, the website TVC-Mall has added an entire section dedicated to Lightning cables, most of them very cheap. Compared to Apple’s $19 one, these start at a mere $3.62. It doesn’t stop there though, there are also Lightning to 30-pin adapters and Lightning to USB adapters. Bored of the plain white color that Apple does? Don’t fret! This site has them in all sorts of colors. So whether you want new colors or just need a cheap cable, this site seems to have them. You have to keep in mind though, these are unofficial and may not work. So consider yourself warned.
What do you think? Are you going to order some? Wish Apple wouldn’t have done the authentication chip? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
