Great looking cable.
At that price it would have to be a collectors piece as you wouldn’t want to leave that in a hotel!

Thanks for sharing!

wow! this reminds me of the the other thread

Lot of company CEOs may go for this kind of cable, may be a status symbol, and I can easily see myself not going for it :smiley:

Wow! What a look! I would wear that around my neck, lol JK, but seriously it looks too nice to use. Uh, Dumb expensive especially for Anker, which is odd, but my iPhone and I would love it! Look at the Pouch! That’s classy. Other than the price, well done Anker!

We need a gold wireless charger for the medallion.

Amusingly, I reckon Apple will ditch the Lightning port before the cable gets much use.

I think @professor means that they are about to go fully wireless.

I think the twin of

  • USB-C technical superiority (faster, bidirectional) and lower cost (more units sold lowers unit cost) over Lightning,
  • and wireless charging,

will together kill Lightning.

I see a portless iPhone coming, along with the anger of “why did I pay so much for this useless cable!” comments from those who didn’t read this.

Why? What about it will be fun?

I don’t see portless being all the iPhones, probably just the smaller ones.

But I do see anyone paying a lot for Lighning cables now will regret it.

No more fiddling to connect the cable to charge… just place it on charging pad!

its been about 2-3 weeks got the 11 pro… not connected the lightning port a single time, not seeing the need for it

Apple may test with 1 portless iPhone and still retain other iphone models with some-port (may be ditch lightning and move to USB-C – they need to keep their main bread and butter :smiley: ) , see how it goes with general crowd… then may be 1-2 years, samsung will follow the path, eventually, all phones go portless… but this is again a theory and subject to change!

Apple marketing will take the profit increase of not having a port into a must-have upgrade, you’d have a bit smaller phone, or a slightly larger battery, a little better IP rating, and the iSheep told to love it and they then dutifully do what told.

I see wireless deemed good enough for all but the higher end larger models.

So small phones kill Lightning from lack of use, and larger phones kill Lightning due to USB-PD technical and cost superiority.

By all means buy a Lightning cable if you need one but no need to spend more than the odd $7 one.

Anker does need a kick to come up with better portable wireless chargers, hopefully they know this. I reckon a 20Ah 10W is technically valid in 2020, it recharged from USB PD 18W-30W. I’m sure when a portless iPhone comes out, if Anker doesnt have a decent 10Ah and 20Ah PD input wireless output portable charger range, its a few $M revenue loss.

Funny, the cable won’t get used enough to make this relevant.

I’d pay extra for a good 100W USB cable. It would get used a lot.

You don’t understand the “courage“ it takes to remove the lightning port. Apple is the only company “brave” enough to do so :joy::joy:

Okay, but how will getting rid of the port affect the usability of wireless charging?!
