Source of lightning plug

I have a few lightning-usb cables that have a damaged lightning plug. Is there any place to buy just the plug so I can replace the damaged one? Thanks J

** FYI:

The word lightning refers to a weather event.

There is a data plug trade marked "Lightning" that I suspect you are referring to.

The name "USB" should also be in capitals, as it too is a trade mark.

I doubt anyone sells rewireable version of the Lightning plug.

The complete cable is cheap.

Yes it is, but they all have the same weak spot which admittedly, can be re inforced but I'd prefer to rebuild mine, if possible.

And yes, I know the difference between 'lightning' and 'Lightning' and 'usb ' and 'USB'....and anybody with 1/2 a brain would understand the meaning an d context of the question. And for the pedantic ppl in the crowd, it should properly be cited as 'App le Lightning (TM) since it is a registered trademark - not simply 'Lightnin g'....

So that raises a question (since some ppl like to pick 'fly sh*t' out of pe pper), if one refers to a knock off Apple Lightning to USB cable, should th ey properly call it a 'Apple Lightning to USB' cable? a 'Lightning to USB' cable, a 'lightning to USB' cable??? or perhaps a 'bootleg work-a-like Appl e Lightning to USB cable'????

I'll let the resident neurotic Phil answer this one since he seems to be m ost annoyed by the grammar/capitalization rules, and syntax of the phrase.. .. ....sheesh...
