Zus Kevlar MFi Certified Lightning Cable For $19

features-01_copy_ongydb-740x697

Look, I have the Zus Kevlar MFi Certified Lightning Cable, and I think it’s awesome. I even did a review. And while today’s deal isn’t a deal in the sense that you won’t save anything from the MSRP of $19, if you get yourself one through the link at the bottom, you’ll be supporting this site in the process.

Stop re-upping on low quality charging cables that tear after just a few months. The ZUS Cable can bend over 15,000 times, 50% more than the nearest competitor, and is covered by a lifetime warranty. That’s how confident ZUS is in their cables. These cables are built with the same aramid fiber technology used in aerospace and military applications so normal wear and tear just won’t affect them.

– Cables are tangle-free thanks to the nylon braiding
– Each cable comes w/ a complimentary velcro tie to keep the cable further organized
– 90 degree plug provides a slim fit in narrow spaces
– MFi Certification means your iPhone is perfectly safe to charge

This is legitimately a great cable. It’s tough as nails and feels premium. At $19, which is cheaper than Apple’s own charging cable, it’s a no-brainer.

OhGizmo! Review: The Zus Kevlar Charging Cable

features-01_copy_ongydb

We reviewed the Zus Car Charger and Car Locator a while ago and came away impressed with its design and functionality. We thought it had accomplished something pretty impressive by redesigning and improving on a seemingly banal piece of tech. And they’re now done the same with yet another commodity: the charging cable. We’ve been playing with the Zus Kevlar Charging Cable for the last couple of weeks, and we simply don’t see ourselves going back to Apple’s touch-it-and-break-it cables.

The Zus offering’s claim to fame is that it’s built like a tank. It’s reinforced with Kevlar, which is the same material you find in bulletproof vests. The company claims it can pull a car, and resist the normally irresistible force of a cat’s cable-chewing addiction; we believe them. The cable also features a 90 degree plug, which helps it get into tight spaces, like a cramped car’s cigarette lighter socket receptacle. In third-party testing, the Zus Kevlar Cable was bent 15,000 times, which is 50% more than Belkin’s, its closest competitor.

We have no trouble believing any of these claims. The cable definitely feel solid in your hands. It’s not supple and feels rather sturdy, staying bent at the angle you select. The nylon braiding is a nice touch and give its a premium feel. Even the packaging it comes in has obviously been designed with care and attention to detail.

The most impressive thing about the Zus Kevlar Cable is that it’s just $19. It’s on pre-order now, with shipping in mid-July.
