We have all fallen victim to the annoyance when you are trying to insert the USB into a charging port. If you are especially USB-challenged, it can even take a few times to insert! Finally thanks to Blitztek you can say goodbye to this gadget grudge with the Reversible USB. No matter which way you insert the USB, it just goes in every time thanks to their specially designed USB that sits in the center of the device! This designed is currently patented and is the first company to roll out a fully reversible USB to address this problem fixing technology!
I have reviewed a lot of different chargers, but this one is definitely unique and nothing like I have used before. This one has a built in capacitive touch light to help users find their plug in their phone in the dark. And if you are like me you can all relate to this problem and I think I can testify for everyone when I say you have had to try multiple times to plug your charging cord in your phone at night. Well this cord definitely comes in handy to fix just that!
Testing the Sewell Direct Luminid Touch
I have been using this Sewell charging cord for about a good week now. Every time I go to charge my iPhone 6s I have yet to have a problem. No errors pop up and my phone charges just fine. This is because this cord is MFI certified. What this means is “Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad” . This is a licensing program that is given to developers of hardware and software peripherals that work with various Apple products. So if you are going to buy a charging cord for you apple product make sure it is MFI certified or you will be having problems with it down the road!
Like I always say in all of my videos and reviews, I prefer a charging cord that has nylon or Teflon cords. The reason I always say this is because it will drastically decrease the chances of your charging cord breaking over time. This one is not made of either of those materials; instead it uses a durable PVC jacket that is supposed to give strain relief. As on now I have had no problems with this, but I do expect it over time to have wear-and-tear.
Now the function you have been waiting for… The Direct Luminid Touch that this cable provides. I have to admit this light has come in handy every time I go to plug in my phone when it is dark. Simply touching the end of the cord will turn on 2 bright lights on each corner of the plug. We have yet to try anything like this and it has definitely become a necessity for us. The light is bright enough so you can see what you’re doing and you don’t have to put of the tip to make the light go on. You can softly touch the ends and it will turn the light on.
I can honestly say I really enjoyed this Sewell charging cord. Having the light at the tip is a huge help when it is dark and hard to see. I think that the only thing I would like to see out of this cord is it being made with Teflon or nylon instead of a PVC plastic. This way I know that the cord will last me a long time and I won’t have to worry about much wear-and-tear over time.
One of the most annoying things when it comes to charging your devices is having to flip your micro-USB over and over until you get the right side. This can be a major pain for anyone who doesn’t have the pleasure of using the lighting cable from Apple. But aside from apple, everything else uses a micro-USB, so you are most likely familiar with the unpleasant frustration of putting the cord in the first time.
Finally! Someone has taken it upon them self to asses the situation and invent a all new way to change the problem. Our friends over at WinnerGear has developed one of the first fully reversible micro USB cables called the MICFLIP. But not only have they fixed the long over due problem of a reversible Micro-USB. WinnerGear made the cord into a nylon braided tangle free cable to prevent the cable from being damaged or cut. Then they also made each plug coated with gold with extra strong aluminum hosing for extra durability
Check out what we thought of the cable in our unboxing video below!
TuneWear has taking a different approach to fixing a cable problem that many people have. The CableArt line of products attempts to solve the problems of aesthetics, protection of the cable and portability. If you have a phone or a tablet then you can testify to the fact that charging cords are brokn easily and are terrible for portability. These are problems that anyone with a Apple device has experience before. The TuneWear CableAart offers a new function that makes carrying the Charging/Sync cable why protecting the fragile Lightning connector with a cover.
CableArt combines artistic charm with the functionality of protecting and carrying the cable. It also serves as a simple key holder with visual art piece. The style of this case allows you to never forget your charging cable again. This unique charging cable in the shape of a lantern allows you to hang it on your backpack or any other bag for easy access. The charging cable lets you always have your cord with you no matter where you are.
Overall, we think that this is a good idea and something that does make your life easier when it comes to carrying your cable around and protecting it. But, there are a couple things we would have changed about it. To start the cord isn’t long enough, if you are going to be charging something you want to have a little slack between your charger and device. Second, the cord isn’t MFi certified, so you will get an error when you are charging saying that it does not support this device. We like the design of the CableHeart and the idea, but if these two minor things were changed then we would give this a better rating. We rate this 3 out of 5 stars.
I thought that having such a short cable would be such a waste of money. But then I started to get different products that would make life easier having a shorter cable. I have a charging station from Skiva and I love it. But the thing is it looks really messy when I have these long cords just sitting there. And so I found this one foot cord and thought it would be perfect for this.
Lightning chargers for your iPhone are expensive. And because of this you want make the right choice when purchasing a cord. From personal experience we found that the charging cord made from the original rubber never last long. They get dirty fast and over time the rubber will rip and make charging impossible.
Sync and charge your Lightning devices with this hard-wearing, high quality and braided fabric Lightning to USB charge and sync cable in silver with charging status color LED.
If you are a frequent reader of my site you know that one of my biggest problems of buying a charging cable that’s not from Apple is if it is MFI certified or not. If it’s not then you will always get an error pop up on your phone saying that this charger does not support your phone. But, if your phone is MFI certified then you will never have to worry about this error popping up.
Luckily the ZeroLemon is an Apple MFi certified lightning to USB plastic PVC cable. It is 3.2 Feet long with an aluminum casing. And the best part is this charging cable comes with a 2 Year Warranty! Personally I like this cable a lot more than the cables that come from apple because it seems like it is made from better material. The cord is thicker and the caps are stronger. So if you are constantly bending the cord it will be hard to ruin the wires.
