How To Choose a 6-Foot iPhone Charger

It's important to keep your cell phone ready for business and fun. For most iPhone users, an important accessory is an iPhone charger to keep battery power for your phone at an optimal level. Charger cords come in a wide range of styles, colors, and lengths to suit your needs and can easily be found on eBay.

How do you know you're getting the right charger?

Getting the correct 6-foot iPhone charger is easy, but the product description of the charger you purchase should specify that it works with your iPhone model. The USB-type with lightning connector that the iPhone 6 uses was first used with the iPhone 5 and the iPad 4. eBay offers a variety of new and used 6-foot chargers, so you'll be able to find the perfect one to work with your phone.

Can you use the charger with other Apple products?

For the most part, yes. Apple iPhone charger cables are usually compatible with a number of Apple tablets and music players. Because each Apple product may have a slightly different format, refer to the manufacturer's specifications. The lightning iPhone charger is designed for the following devices:

  • Apple iPad: This lightning cable is compatible with most iPads and tablets including the iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4.
  • iPods: iPhone charger cables will work with some models of iPod touch.
  • Specific iPhone Models: Lightning cables are compatible with Apple iPhones such as the iPhone X, the 8 and 8 Plus, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and the 5, 5S, and 5C iPhone models.
Can you plug the iPhone charger directly into the wall?

Although the 6-foot iPhone charger cable can be plugged into any available port on your laptop or desktop computer, you can't directly connect the cable to the wall outlet without an adapter.

Do 6-foot iPhone chargers come in different styles?

iPhone chargers come in a variety of styles and colors to coordinate with your iPhone or iPad. Some styles include the following:

  • Heavy-duty cords: Some charger cords for your Apple device come with a heavy-duty nylon braiding and a durable aluminum shell for longer device life. The nylon braiding and shell minimize fraying and bending that can limit the life of your charger cord.
  • Color: eBay has a variety of colors for the 6-foot iPhone, including red, white, and other colors that may be compatible with the color of your iPhone or its case.
