We live in an age with too many cables. It’s a first world problem that is the byproduct of modern times, indicative of capitalism at its finest. When we examine the cables that we use on a daily basis, we have Lightning, micro USB, to the new standard that will become ubiquitous, the USB-C. If you thought keeping up with the plethora of cables is enough of a headache, think about how they all look similar to the point where it’s not uncommon to hear people mistakenly bringing the wrong cable to their vacation.
The ASAP x-connect Cross-Device Magnetic Cable attempts to change all that with an ingenious solution. It’s the world’s first cross-compatible magnetic USB cable that is compatible with all phones, whether it’s Lighing for your iPhone, micro USB for Android, or even USB-C for the next generation of phones. The magnetic connector attaches to adaptors that connect to each type instantaneously, while the other end features a reversible USB connector so you don’t have to worry about whether it’s right side up anymore.
