The dark days of dongle hell might finally be over thanks to a brilliant new accessory that packs five different ports in one cable.

Vonmählen, a smartphone accessory maker based in Germany, revealed its new creation called the High Five. The company claims it’s the first ever 5-in-1 cable that’s so small it fits on your keychain. Best of all, it’s super cheap too.

High Five is actually made of two cables. One has a USB-C jack with Lightning and Micro USB adapters on the other end. The second cable has a USB-C jack with USB-C and Micro USB ports on the other side.

When not in use, the High Five can be turned in a loop by plugging the USB-C and Micro USB ends together. One of the only downsides is the cables are rated at 2.4A1, so you won’t be able to do fast charging. Still, it provides a quick solution if you need a cable to juice up your iPhone or other gadgets.

Vonmählen says it plans to ship High Five by May. There are a Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns created to fund the project. Pricing on preorders is currently set at €14, or about $16 but the company says the price will go up when High Five launches.
