In the market for a new Lightning cable? Well, before paying out $19 for an authorized cable in the Apple Online Store, consider heading over to Kickstarter, where a stronger, more flexible alternative is available to back from $20. Called JUICES+, the anodized aluminum woven cables are available in black and metallic aluminum, for both Lightning and micro-USB devices.

Creator Laurens Laudowicz calls JUICES+ “the cable Apple should have made,” and this statement appears to be based both on the functionality of the alternative cable and its high-quality makeup. JUICES+ is made from anodized aerospace aluminum, and as such, iDevice owners can expect the following:

  • Same look and feel as your top of the line device.
  • Much stronger and more durable than a standard cable.
  • Thin connector housings that work with every case.
  • Very light. Just right!
  • Much stronger, yet more flexible than standard cables.
  • The woven style is Tangle Free by Design.
  • Inner steel wire mesh shielding.
  • Simply looks and feels a thousand times better!

Furthermore, JUICES+ cables are available in two colors: black and metallic aluminium.

Sandblasted Anodized Aluminium.

Tangle Free Design.

For more information on JUICES+, head over to the product’s Kickstarter Web page, where additional information along with a video overview is available to view.

As mentioned, iDevice owners can back JUICES+ from $20, and so far the project has secured more than $10,000 of its $40,000 funding goal, with 59 days to go.
