The Limb.al Charging Cable and Stand in One

Who needs a fancy and expensive smartphone stand when you can have a Limb.al ? Another Kickstarter project that’s already been fully funded with over 20 days to go, the Limb.al  is a rigid yet flexible USB to Apple/Micro-SD cable that allows you to position your smartphone directly in your USB port while charging and syncing your device at the same time. No more annoying cables across your desk or having to worry if your docking station will fit the next generation device :)

A microUSB one can be yours for $17 or an Apple one for $19 from their funding page.

    looks pretty neat, but I’m not sure how the USB ports of the laptop and phone will hold up to all that stress of supporting the weight of the heavier phones.

    @Ian – I’ve had my eye on this too. I wish my monitors here at work weren’t so old that they don’t have the side-mounted USB ports, which they seem to allude to a lot in the video. That would make the Limb.al particularly useful for me.

    @chriszzz – I agree. I have my doubts bout that as well. Especially if you have your device oriented any way other than vertically, and if you have it in a case.

    I got one – it doesn’t hold the weight as well as it should. Bent in an L shape, it actually rests on the desk before extending up to hold the phone. Also it’s worthless in the car – the cheap USB car plug is loose in the lighter/plug slot, so the limb.al just falls right over. Good cable, poor attachment.
