In this day and age, charging your phone on a daily basis is an absolute necessity. Despite this, it’s amazing how hard some cables can make it to charge your phone — not only do they sometimes stop working unless they’re plugged in the right way, but they also tend to get worn out and look aesthetically unpleasing.

This Lightning cable charger cover, sometimes called a cable bite or a housing for cable figure skating, is also good at keeping your cable plugged in while charging because of where it rests on the cable’s end.
