xlSync iOS & Micro-USB Cables: Long Distance Lines
July 3rd, 2011
Gadget owners still live in a very wired world, and managing cords and cables can sometimes be a pain. On the other hand, there are instances when these wires prove too short, like if you need to reach an awkwardly-placed outlet. That’s why CableJive came up with the xlSync cables.
xlSync USB cables come in two versions – one for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and one for micro-USB devices. Both versions are 6.5 ft. (2 meters) long. I imagine just one of this length is enough to create quite a tangled mess. On the other hand, it’ll let you use your gadget without you having to stay close to where it’s plugged in. iPad users will be glad to know that the wire used in the xlSync cable for iOS devices is gauged big enough to handle the stronger current needed to charge your tablet over the longer cable.
You can order the xlSync USB cables from CableJive’s online shop for $13 (USD). The iOS version is available in black and white, while the micro-USB cable only comes in black. If you own an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch but are looking for the exact opposite of the xlSync, i.e. an extra short cable, don’t worry, CableJive also has the perfect cable for you too.
