USB is an awesome connector standard because it’s so convenient. And more importantly it’s so everywhere! Now that the standard is well established, we’re basking in a sea of compatible devices, chargers, phones, TVs, music players, you name it. But if there’s one thing that drives us nuts, it’s the fact that you have to put the cable in the right way round each time, and you just know your first attempt is going to fail, and in the dark. Under the desk.
So HOORAY for the new Remax Reversible USB Cable, which will let you plug your USB cable in any way up you like. Now we can relax and know that we won’t be fumbling, breaking, scratching or otherwise spending hours (well OK minutes) trying to get our plugs inserted properly.
Apparently the product is also anti-jam and anti-high voltage, whatever that means, but we don’t care a jot, as long as we can remove teh rotation hassles. It comes in lengths of 1 meter, in black and white and there’s two types, a micro USB and an Apple Lightning connector version. Yay for progress we say. This fancy flat cable and new plug end is priced at $14.
