First, durability. The PowerLine+ III can support 175 pounds before breaking and has been built to offer a 35,000-bend lifecycle. Also, the polished connectors are scratch-resistant, so they maintain their good looks longer.

The iPhone charging cables also use the upgraded Lightning connector that's stronger than the older connector, and also rustproof (yes, older Lightning cables had a big problem with rusting).

The PowerLine+ III cables also pack away smaller than the older PowerLine+ II cables, which might not seem like a big thing, but when you're traveling or out and about, the smaller, the better -- as long as it doesn't compromise durability (which, in this case, it doesn't).

The curved ends on the connectors also mean that there's less snagging, which is a nice feature and will be appreciated by anyone who juggles a lot of cables.

The PowerLine+ III cables are also Power Delivery compatible, so offer the fastest possible charge speeds.

Anker's PowerLine+ III cables come in USB-C to USB-C, USB-C to Lightning, and USB-A to Lightning, with prices ranging from $21.99 to $29.99.
