Lightning cables are expensive, and I have 2 of them which are in great shape except that they are failing because of pitted contacts. That is, the gold metal of one of the 8 leads has been removed, probably through arcing as shown in the photo below from this website. My question is: is there a way to fix this without having to keep paying for whole cables?
For example, if there were some epoxy or superglue that was conductive, I wonder if that would make sense? If a suggestion like that makes an expert squirm for some reason I don't understand, I guess that's what I'd like to know.
I just don't like wasting.
