Anker nylon vs PowerLine

is there a real difference between the quality of these 2?

one says it can tolerate 4000 bends. the other says 10,000 bends

ones braided the other ones not.
one of them has assorted lengths the other is 6ft


Definitely a big difference. They are both of pristine quality. I would recommend whichever your budget permits!

i have the Nylon Braided Lightening cable from Anker, used it for 2 years, and still operational, retains its appearance. not using it now though

I have both types of lightning cables and quality appears to be almost identical, except 1 is braided and the other is quality rubberized plastic. I’ve had them for awhile now and both still works.

Go for the one that says 10,000 but I can assure you whichever you choose, you will get a quality cable

The nylon braided version is older.

You may want to take a look at PowerLine+, which is Anker’s most durable Micro USB cable.

I prefer the powerline II to the +

I find that overtime, even though the cable may be functioning fine, braided cables trap dirt and get “pressure points” where the shifting braids produce a kink.

Both cables also come with the lifetime warranty though so you’ll have that peace of mind.

I got nylon braided, red ones.
As I usually care about my cables much, there is no issue since a year,
and I suppose there will be no in the future. They look like new.

Nylon are nice :alien: I like them way better then regular cables

I have bought anker power line in the past they are good but they are chunky cables and braided i would not recommend power line yes they last long but wernt good for me
