You can pick up low-priced Lightning cables pretty much any day of the week, but premium options aren’t on sale nearly as frequently. However, Anker has launched a new offer for its 3-ft reinforced PowerLine Lightning cables. When you apply coupon code BK3S7CNN during checkout, the White, Black, Space Gray, Blue and Red cables will drop from $9.99 to just $7.99 each. Free shipping is available for Prime members and on orders of at least $49.

I’ve been using the 10-ft version for more than 6-months and appreciate how solid its Lightning connector feels compared to Apple’s offering. The added durability comes from its use of kevlar fiber, dual-layer sheathing and reinforced stress points. Rated 4.8 out of 5 stars from 1,278 Amazon reviewers.

Looking to charge your Android smartphone/tablet or Bluetooth speaker? Anker’s 3-ft braided micro USB cable in Silver is on sale for $3.99 Prime shipped with coupon code B8CU432Q (Reg. $6).

The Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable glows when you touch it, making it easier to plug it into your phone after dark. You can order one now for $10 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials.

If you are a parent, or someone with roommates, there are times when switching the light on isn’t an option. For such circumstances, the Luminid is ideal. It comes in Lightning and micro USB flavors, and inside the connector there is an LED light. When you pick up the cable, this glows until you manage to plug in your phone or tablet successfully. At 40 inches long, the Luminid offers impressive reach, and the cord is sheathed within a durable PVC jacket which provides good flexibility. The Lightning version is also MFi-certified, meaning it has Apple’s seal of approval.

Currently, the Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable is 49% off the MSRP of the Lightning version, and 54% off the micro USB cable $9 — both with free shipping.
