Griffin Launching Lightning Cables Next Week

Griffin announced today an array of Apple-certified lightning cables for Apple’s latest generation of iOS devices. The company has said that the cables “work perfectly with Griffin’s family of PowerBlocks and PowerJolts as well as Apple’s USB power adapters, or plug into a computer’s USB to sync with iTunes.”

The upcoming cable offerings include:

  • 2’ straight USB-to-Lightning cable ($16.99)
  • 3’ straight USB-to-Lightning cable ($18.99)
  • 4’ coiled USB-to-Lightning cable ($24.99)
  • 9.8’ (3 meter) straight USB-to-Lightning cable ($29.99)

There have been many unofficial lightning cables released in the last couple of months that will probably work, but this set from Griffin will be the first to be officially certified by Apple.

As iLounge reported almost 2 months ago, “only Apple-approved manufacturing facilities will be allowed to produce Lightning connector accessories, even including third-party accessories.” Since that report, various factories have been approved, including ones providing cables to Belkin, Scosche, and now Griffin.
