Keeping enough cables around to keep your iPhone and Android-toting friends charged up can be a big tangled pain, but there’s now one cable to rule them all.

inCharge debuted its new tiny charging cable today. Not only does it pack a Lightning connector that also works with Micro-USB ports, but you can also clip on a USB-C port too, making it the most versatile charging cord we’ve ever seen.

The last keyring cable inCharge created was one of our favorite little tools. That version only came in either Lightning or Micro-USB versions. Now you can get both on the same cable, and it still fits on a keyring.

inCharge launched its IndieGoGo campaign for the new cable today. There are two versions: the dual, which has Micro-USB and Lightning ports, and the All in One that adds USB-C as well.

The All In One cable only costs $7. You can get the dual version for just $6. The cables are expected to ship by September 2018. Just in time for the new iPhones.

Of course, this is a crowdfunding product so there’s no guarantee that it’ll ship. But considering the company has already raised nearly five times more than its goal of $10,000, we’ll probably see these little cables land on keyrings real soon.
