Review: Belkin Mixit DuraTek Lightning to USB Cable

Charging cables are possibly the most important accessory for any mobility device – whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, or even a laptop. So, if you are a heavy smartphone user, you might have gone through the pain of seeing your cables crack after prolonged use. What if those same cables were a bit more durable and looked a bit more stylish than the plain white cables you get with most phones?

Belkin has an answer for Apple phones and tablets – it’s called Mixit DuraTek Lightning to USB cable. These cables have a nice braided surface that flexes more easily than a plastic sheath will. This will hopefully keep the cables from cracking or splitting for a longer prior of time.

These cables are also available in a bunch of colours to match up to your iPhone or iPad – colour options include Black, Rose Gold, Gold, and Silver. We know the colours of a charging cable aren’t a big deal – but if you are bored of the plain white and black plastic cables, the Mixit DuraTek Lightning to USB cable can be an eye candy.

These cables are also strong – the DuraTek cables come packed with Kevlar fibers to reinforce the inner wiring for added strength. in addition, abrasion-resistant nylon forms a tough outer jacket. Belkin has also added a highly flexible insulation to minimize the damage from friction.

With about 1.2 meters in length, the Belkin Mixit DuraTek Lightning Cable also has a good length to connect your phone from the floor to your desk. It comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty and is MFi Certified, too.

The Belkin Mixit DuraTek Lightning Cable does costs a little more, but this thing comes in four different colours and the standout feature here is the DuPont Kevlar fibre reinforcing the inner wiring. If you’re fed up with Lightning cables that snap easily or just stop working, Belkin’s Mixit DuraTek Lightning cable could be worth a look.
