The Scosche CI44-SP Strikeline cable runs four feet in length with USB-C on one end and Lightning on the other and is available in black. The cable is certified through Apple to ensure it works properly with your device.

Apple's iPhone X and newer support Fast Charge, which is significantly quicker at charging your iPhone than a USB-A cable. To do so, you need a USB-C Lightning cable -- such as the Strikeline -- and a USB-C charging brick. With those, you can achieve 50 percent charge in only 30 minutes.

The cable is also useful for charging your iPhone from your new iPad Pro's USB-C port or connecting to any recent Mac that has ditched USB-A.

Thus far, only Anker has been shipping a USB-C Lightning cable, with everyone else awaiting on Apple's MFi certification.

You can pick up the Scosche Strikeline USB-C to Lightning cable right now on Amazon for $24.99.

    Apple's USB-C to lightening 3ft cable MQGJ2AM/A costs $19 with free shipping. Anker similar 3ft cable on Amazon $18 and Scoche 4ft $25. I think I will go with Apple.

    The $19 Apple cable works great. I am using this paired with a 29W USB-C charger for my iPhone Xs, iPad mini (4th generation, which does not benefit from the fast charge feature) and my 2017 MacBook (paired with a USB-C cable). When traveling, I also toss in the standard 5W USB charger with the appropriate Lightning-to-USB-A cable.

    Good to know there are third-party options which always have the possibility of future price reductions.

    Anker sells a USB-C to lightning cable model that is exclusive to Target on If you have a Redcard it’ll drop the price to $18. I picked a couple of them up. I actually prefer this Target model to the one Anker sells on Amazon. I personally prefer 6ft or 10ft cables, which no one sells yet, but I bought some USB-C extension cables on Amazon and they work great.

    The other thing to consider when looking at the price is the warranty period. These Anker cables have a lifetime warranty. That can really defray the cost when you consider you can get this cable replaced as many times as you need for zero cost to you. Your $8 cable might be cheaper up front but if you have to replace it three or four times it really costs you $24 or $32 dollars.

    They also carry it in black:

    I wish Anker have 10ft long version, 3ft is too short...
