Weak Lightning cables


Recommended Posts

I didn't find a topic about this but I'm sure it's something most Apple users have experienced: charging cables that disintegrate at the ends.


I refuse having to spend hard-earned dollars on a new cable and I'm not a fan of third-party ones either. The solution? The super awesome Dremel Versatip and 6.9mm heat shrinkable tubing. It's just a pity that I couldn't get white tubing as it is listed as an available colour on the packaging.




I wonder when Apple is going to solve this problem? It's a non-issue with the micro USB charging cables out there.

I've done a couple more of these repairs recently. Below is the worst one I've seen to date.












Any opportunity to play with heat-shrink tubing LOL. I love using it in satellite projects too (what you guys call "cable").
