Admittedly, $19 for a charging cable ain't bargain basement but for those like me that were issued a new MacBook and iPhone 8 at work, $19 is worth the convenience of not having to deal with plugging a cable, into a dongle, into your MacBook while traveling.

As per the Business Insider article I read last night: [businessinsider.com]
  • Apple recently cut the price of the USB-C to Lightning cable from $25 to $19.
  • What's notable about this cord is that Apple hasn't let any third-party cable makers create authorized versions yet. If you need one, the only manufacturer that sells one that's guaranteed to work is Apple.
  • This is the cord you need if you want to plug the latest iPhone directly into the latest MacBook without a dongle.
  • There's one powerful reason to buy this cord, too: It can charge your iPhone X or 8 super-fast — as much as 50% battery in 30 minutes.
  • If you have a MacBook or similar wattage charger, you can swap the USB-C cord for this Lightning cord, essentially allowing you to charge your phone with your laptop charger.

I've purchased two of these for my iPhone 8 in January and I haven't had any issues with them. They fast charge my phone and always work.

I probably didn't have enough coffee this morning...

The moment I saw the title of this thread I was thinking
"holy cow! this thread will make it to FP and be the
all-time most popular deal on Slickdeals for the next
20 years.... 1 MILLION lightning cables for $19!!!"


then I realized 1M meant 1 meter, not 1 million. Frown

I don't really get it since this is not a new product, is not on sale and has been this price since its release. I don't think it can be considered a "deal" of any kind, unfortunately.

The original price was $25, but Apple recently reduced it to $20.

$25 is the regular price.

Fair point on the improper capitalization.

no, no... it was due to my caffeine deficiency this morning. I usually have 5 cups by noon.

This morning, the local water utility was conducting annual pipe disinfecting or something
and the water was shut off... I had not water to make coffee, so I settled on a glass of
milk and some Oreos. I could barely keep my eyes open all morning. Smilie Or making
me see things in a funny way. Big Grin
