I caved in and went with Monoprice certified cables. So far they are working, although a tad too bulky on the lightning end.
I think that's what I'm going to need to do as well. I've bought countless cables, but one by one they are dying off.
I can tell you one thing that really extended the life of mine though, is take a glue gun and gob it all around the connector ends where the cable comes out and extend the glue about an inch longer. It will cool with some flex to it and will help take the strain off where the cable goes into the connector.
