Default 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.

Yes it is, but they all have the same weak spot which admittedly, can be reinforced 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 and context of the question.
And for the pedantic ppl in the crowd, it should properly be cited as 'Apple Lightning (TM) since it is a registered trademark - not simply 'Lightning'....

So that raises a question (since some ppl like to pick 'fly sh*t' out of pepper), if one refers to a knock off Apple Lightning to USB cable, should they 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 Apple Lightning to USB cable'????

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

YOU have a horrible aversion to using capitals, like so many of your SMS lingo fingering half wit friends.

Well there is the thread heading 'source of lightning plug'
Then there were the sentences in the OP that made it all pretty clear.
And there was the use of the phrase 'lightning plug' in an electronics ng.
But other than that

no-one could care less if he capitalises it. Except Phil, who loses it over someone not using a capital letter.
