Lightning cables are the lifelines for our iDevices. We rely on them for charging and syncing all our data, so when one goes kaput it’s a serious setback. That’s why getting a tougher Lightning cable is a good move.
It’s that wonderful time of the year, Black Friday! What is a better day than the day after spending time with the family and devouring a huge Thanksgiving meal? Whether you are shopping around for yourself or a family member, it is always nice to score a cool piece of tech at a deal.
If you’ve owned more than one mobile device, you’ve had to deal with juggling different chargers. USB, USB-C, Lightning, MicroUSB. It can be tough to keep up with all the cables you need to keep our devices running.
Titan’s cable is wrapped twice in flexible industrial-grade steel, with its USB and Lightning connectors sealed and protected from fray. The MFi rating means Apple vouches for it to keep your devices safe, and it’s even backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Rough handling and time itself are no match for this Terminator-grade charging cable.
From the 1st century to today, you could say the magnet is one component of technology that has stuck around.
With that bad pun out of the way (two if you count the headline), a Hong Kong company is using the simple magnet to make the charging of our smartphones easier and faster. The MagCable is a USB cable with a magnetic end that snaps into place thanks to an adapter tip that plugs into your charging port.
There is even a Lightning magnet adapter for iPhone and charging can be sped up by a button on the cable that shuts off data sync.
