Fuse Chicken Armour Charge Cable: Finally, a Charging Cable that Doesn't Fray

I’ve only had my iPhone 6s since January, and since then I’ve already worn through Apple’s standard cable that came with my device, as well as a newer cable I purchased off Amazon. I’ve never considered myself particularly rough on my cables, and yet time has shown me time and time again that I just can’t keep them intact—and to be honest, having a cat that constantly tries to chew on them doesn’t really help matters either.

But finally, ladies and gentlemen, I believe I have met my (and my cat’s) charging cable match. Fuse Chicken sent me its Armour Charge cable ($34.95) a few weeks ago and I can already tell we are going to be very happy together. After a few weeks of use, I can usually see very minor signs of fraying at the end of my cable (likely from where I bend it by using my phone while it’s charging). But I have yet to see that with Fuse Chicken’s cable.

The Armour Charge is woven from 100% stainless steel strands, with aluminum housing fused over the Lightning and USB connecters for added protection—hence the reason this cable is so durable. Best of all, although the cable is protective, it isn’t excessively bulky. I tried out Fuse Chicken’s Titan Cable previously, and although I loved how tough it was, I wasn’t a fan of its thickness. The Armour Charge meets in the middle, which I’m very happy to see.

Pros:

  • Super durable
  • Not too bulky
  • Flexible

Final Verdict:

  • If, like me, your charging cable is prone to fraying, then I would definitely recommend the Armour Charge cable.
