This Upcoming USB-C MagSafe-style Adapter Promised 87W Of Power

Apple may have filed the patent for an adapter that will bring MagSafe back to MacBook and possibly, other devices, but when exactly will it realize is anybody guess and so, for now, if you want MacSafe back, your only solution will be third party solutions like the Griffin BreakSafe and Snapnator, and now there is another to look to: Vinpok Bolt S. As far as uniqueness goes, Vinpok Bolt S has none. It is basically what both BreakSafe and Snapnator have to offer, but it does stand out for the sole fact that it can probably deal with large capacity-equipped 15-inch MacBook Pro.

CONNEX: A “Card-shaped” USB Cable That Stretches And Has No Tangle Mess

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. There’s really no perfect solutions to this “necessary evil.” To overcome this, you can choose to go with a short cable, or you could wound it up, but what if you don’t need to do either? Like, if you can have a long cable that needs no winding and unwinding, and 100 percent won’t tangle? While it sounds like an impossibility, those qualities are actually part of CONNEX Self-collapsible Universal Cable. We prefer to call it card cable, cos’ when in its collapsed form, it looks pretty much like a card that you could easily slips into your wallet, purse or bag.

Meet Thino, The Fastest And Possibly The Smartest OTG USB Charger

You need the USB cable and you also need a backup battery, so why not put the two together and bring just one accessory when you are on the move? Viglo Thino On-The-Go USB Charger is one such accessory. Granted, Thino is not the first. There are many such accessory in the market, but what catches our attention is Thino’s aesthetic. It is pretty. Much like stick form factor flash drive, Thino packs a modest 480 mAh lithium polymer battery that’s good to keep your smartphone running for up to 2 hours and in addition, it is also a USB cable.

Griffin’s BreakSafe Cable Puts MagSafe Back Into New MacBooks

With the new MacBooks, Apple ditched MacBook-saving MagSafe in favor of USB-C, a port which you use for everything, including charging and video output. Clearly, a single port isn’t going to cut it, but that perhaps is not the biggest concern among MacBook users; the biggest concern is, tripping over the cable will no longer be safe for your precious laptop. We have no doubt the Cupertino folks will address this sometime in the future, but for now, if you want to save yourself the heartbreak, you will have to look to Griffin Magnetic USB-C Power Cable.

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

With the adoption of USB Type-C, it still does not solve the “which side to plug in?” issue entirely. It only addressed one end of the problem, which means one of the world’s most used cable, the micro USB, still has the problem even if USB Type-C were to be implemented. Until the other end’s polarity is tackled, it looks like MicFlip is your best bet if you ever want to bid farewell to the inconvenience of “which side to plug in?” McFlip touted itself as the world’s first truly reversible USB cable with both the USB Type-A and micro USB connectors are designed to be reversible.

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. It’s probably not a big deal, but nevertheless, an inconvenience that we rather not live with, which is why we have USB hubs. Problem solved, you think? Yeah, probably.

Meet WonderCube, an One-inch Cube That is Truly the Swiss Army Knife of Smartphone Accessories

Just a smartphone alone would require us to bring along a few ‘essential’ accessories, including things like backup battery, charging cable, and for some, even a USB flash drive to offload the data burden from the smartphone and perhaps, a device stand for watching movies or doing video calls. I am sure every power user knows what I am talking about and I am also sure that we are beginning to get use to carrying a bunch of ‘associated accessories’. However, that won’t be case if you have the WonderCube. WonderCube is super tiny; it is just one-inch cube in size, but despite its diminutive stature, it is packed with no less than seven features. Yes. Seven features in an one-inch cube accessory. That’s quite a feat, if you ask us. Continue reading Meet WonderCube, an One-inch Cube That is Truly the Swiss Army Knife of Smartphone Accessories
