If you are using a Titan Lightning charging cable, then there is nothing to discuss further because its lifespan is very long.
However, most of us are just using an original charging cable that comes with the box when you buy a new iPhone. The original charging cable is good, of course. But after a while, your cable may be broken in many different forms. It is exceptionally annoying, right?
If you keep using this broken charging cable, it often isn’t stable and sometimes, throw various errors, such as “Accessory is Not Certified”, or “iPhone not charging” error.
So if your iPhone charging cable is broken, what should you do? Try to fix it or buy a new one?
The thing is – a frayed, broken or ripped charging cable could be dangerous. That’s the reason why I would recommend to replace it with a new one, not try to fix the broken one if you don’t know what you are doing – just for saving a few bucks.
You can easily find and purchase a certified cable with an affordable price from Amazon.com. These charging cables seem to be notably more durable than the official cable from Apple, and certainly better than low-quality replica charging cables.
