Everyone Who Travels for Work Should Own One of These Cables

Want to connect (and charge) your iPhone to your MacBook?


Pretty much every new laptop, whether it’s a MacBook, Chromebook or Windows PC, has adopted a USB-C charging port. This means that if you want to charge one of your accessories through your laptop, be it your smartphone or wireless headphones, you’re going to either need a charging cable with a USB-C connector. (You can also get an adaptor or USB-C hub, but few people want more dongles, right?)

This Anker USB-C to Lightning Cable, for example, is a great travel accessory for anybody who has an iPhone. It can plug directly into your laptop, no adaptor needed. And it’s approved by Apple — it’s Apple MFi Certified — so you know it’s capable of charging your iPhone at its fastest possible speed.

Right now, Anker’s USB-C to Lightning Cable is currently on sale on Amazon.
