Apple makes great smartphones, tablets and computers but truth be told, the company’s accessories really aren’t anything special. Sure it’s convenient to pick up a case or an extra cable while you’re in the Apple store buying that shiny new iPhone, but you’re basically lighting cash on fire just for the convenience of not having to spend and extra 90 seconds placing an order online. If you like saving money though, listen to us now because those Apple accessories are a huge waste.
Check this out: For less than the cost of a single iPhone charger at an Apple store, you can buy five different accessories on Amazon and have money left over in the end.
If you want to purchase an additional OEM charger from Apple, you need to buy two items. First you’ll need either a 5W or 12W USB adapter, either of which cost $19, and then you’ll need a USB cable, which starts at $19. That’s a total of $38 before taxes and any shipping charges.
Instead, try picking up these five accessories on Amazon. You’ll end up with a 3-foot Lightning cable, a wall charger, a ballistic glass screen protector and two iPhone cases with a few dollars to spare.
