Kevlar is a material used in bulletproof vests, NASA spacecraft and the Zus MFi-certified Lightning cable.

This charging beast is strong enough to play tug-of-war with your dog, yet coils up like a regular cable. The flexible, nylon braiding allows it to bend more than 15,000 times without breaking.

The Zus can take 50 percent more wear and tear than the equivalent Belkin cable. Inside the outer braiding, the cable has layers of PVC and grounding EMI. Between the actual electricals, the Kevlar aramid fibers provide a strengthening skeleton.

The Zus is almost impossible to tangle, and it’s MFi-certified so that it won’t ever harm your devices.

You can currently grab the Zus for $19.99 via the Daily Dot store, with free shipping to the U.S. There is also a USB-C version available for $17.99, while the MicroUSB option is just $16.99. Get yours now. It may be the last charging cable you ever buy. Buy it here.
