Tangle mess is part of our life – thanks in part to the USB cable we need to have it with us for on-the-go charging.

MicFlip is the World’s First Truly Reversible USB, Has Reversible micro USB Connector Too

InfiniteUSB Lets You Increase the Number of USB Ports Infinitely. Hint: It is Not a USB Hub.

There is an inverted exponential phenomena in the world of gadgets, particularly laptops, where we are seeing lesser USB ports but an increase in USB port-dependent gadgets.

Symlis Marries a USB Charging Cable to a USB Flash Drive, or Was It Vice Versa?

We are not sure if the Symlis Sparrow OTG Flash Drive and Charging Cable combo is the world’s first flash drive that charges and syncs your smartphone as its creator claims, but it is certainly something we have not seen before. Do correct us if we were wrong. Anyways, the product is what it says it is: an uber sleek accessory that you can use to store files like any regular USB flash drive and also charges and/or sync your smartphone when the need arise.
