MFI USB-C to Lightning cables are now just $7.55 each.
That's below our landed cost.
Genuine Apple Lightning connectors for iPhones, AirPods, iPods, iPads and other accessories, use a proprietary connector developed by Apple.
It is important to note that Apple licences the use of this proprietary Apple chip only to MFI certified cable manufacturers, and inside each MFI Lightning connector is a tiny authentication chip that tells your device it’s Apple MFI certified and approved.
Cheap knock-off (or uncertified) lightning cables can be dangerous to your device and can get extremely hot, cause damage to your phone, and even render it completely fried and useless.
In order to be certified in the Apple MFI programme, the cable manufacturer must submit samples of their cables to Apple's independent testing facility and undergo rigorous stress, electrical and mechanical testing. Individual charging cables are tested to ensure there are no defects and that each cable meets Apple's MFI quality standards.
Every 6 months, Apple randomly inspects the cable manufacturer to ensure cables are still being manufactured to Apple's ultra high standards.
If a Lightning cable doesn't cite its Apple MFI certification - it's not an Apple MFI certified cable.
HomeKit Australia only buy charging cables from one Apple certified MFI factory.
It's easy to find cheaper charging cables, but you won't find better.
