Moshi debuts aluminum USB Cable with Lightning Connector

Moshi has released its USB Cable with Lightning Connector ($20). While it’s not terribly different in price or size from Apple’s official Lightning to USB Cable, this one-meter Lightning cable uses fancy aluminum plug jackets rather than the plastic ones favored by Apple.


Moshi’s USB Cable with Lightning Connector comes in black or white. Teased by the company at CES earlier this year, it is available now.

By the looks of it, that “fancy aluminum jacket” on the Lightning side may make it difficult (or impossible) to fit with many cases.  Why the extra thickness compared to the stock cable?

The Amazon knock-off has the same issue and it won’t fit my Belkin case, which has a large relief cut out around the Lightning opening, but not enough to stuff these fatboys in.  I’ll take a plastic body any day if I can use it without having to remove my case.
