I believe that I have finally found the best wall charging cube and usb lightning cable on the market! When you hear the name OtterBox, you normally think of mobile phone cases, but they are changing the game with rough and tough accessories for mobile charging too.
The OtterBox USB Wall Charger and 3M/10FT Lightning Connector To USB Cable are the ultimate in durablility when it comes to mobile phone charging accessories. These are “no joke” and can go anywhere with you without you having to worry about charging failures.
Great for traveling, road trips (with car charging adapter) and in-home charging.
$24.95 USB Wall Charger
$34.95 3M/10FT Lightning Connector To USB Cable
My overall experience with these two products was a great one. I put them to test in my photography studio and in my Subaru Outback.
In the studio, I pulled the cable out of the packaging and immediately found that it had a solid feel to it, the kind of durability you expect from OtterBox. It didn’t feel flimsy like other cables I have purchased at the big box retail stores or online. The junction of the connector and the cable itself is beefy and tapered with strong material that seems like it will last 10x longer than the cables I normally buy. With this material, it is virtually impossible to kink the cable or bend it where most other cables normally break.
I also found the wall charger to be small and light. The cool thing about the little cube, is its 2.4 AMP throughput which charged my phone in a freaky fast manner. It had the ability to charge either an iPhone or an iPad without having to switch to the manufacturer’s bulky charging brick. Finally, a fast, powerful charger with a small footprint. Love it!
In the car, I plugged the USB side of the cable into the factory USB port in my Subaru. It seamlessly connected my phone to the in-stereo menu and I immediately had fast connectivity to my music. Not much more to say here other than the fact that I felt confident that it wouldn’t break with multiple plug-ins and disconnects in my car.
These two products display great design and durability that not only exceeded my expectations, but looked cool doing it too. The grey and black color way looks stylish along with the patterned material around the connectors. It would be nice if they came in some cool colors too. Hint, hint OtterBox.
If you constantly find yourself in need of charging on the go, purchase the USB Car Charger from OtterBox in addition to your home charger. It also charges at 2.4 AMPs!

The OtterBox USB Wall Charger and 3M/10FT Lightning Connector To USB Cable. I strongly recommend you use these at home, in the car and on your next traveling adventure!
