Griffin is officially the first legit accessory maker to sell third-party Lightning-to-USB cables. Several Lightning-compatible accessories have already come out, but no alternative sync cables. Griffin will start selling Apple-authorized Lightning cables during the first week of December in four different lengths.

Lightning isn’t cheap, so you’ll be paying a minimum of $ 17 for the shortest cable Griffin offers.

The 4 measurements: 2 feet for $ 17, 3 feet for $ 19, 4 feet for $ 25, and a healthy 3 meters for $ 30. All come in black and the 2 footer is coiled. For comparison, Apple sells its 3.5-foot Lightning-to-USB cable for $ 20 and in white only.

These cables should be available on Griffin’s website towards the beginning of next week.
