I bought a pack of three Anker lightning cables because of the praise they got here on HN.

Unfortunately all three weakened near the connector within a few months to the point where they only intermittently charge. Really disappointing.

Did... you buy on amazon? (shudders)

I'd venture to say those aren't real Ankers. The ones I have are built like tanks. I personally abuse some of my lightning cables, pulling on them, stuffing in bags in a rush, etc. They've lasted years and look new.

Note: I do buy the ones that come with nylon, not sure if that makes a difference.
