bloobury-3-in-1-cables

Last year, we told you about a 2.5' retractable 3-in-1 cable from Bloobury that combined an Apple 30-pin connector, an Apple Lightning connector, and a microUSB connector in one cable.  That cable could easily replace three cables in your gear bag, but what if you're not a fan of the retractable cable format?  This year [...]

Have you noticed how short the charging cables included with devices always are?  It's really difficult to find an outlet that lets you comfortably use your device as you charge it with those little 3-foot long cables.  The Lasso Lightning cable ($29.99) from KERO is 10 feet long, so you'll never be faced with having [...]

trunk-lightning-cable

This Lightning cable from iLoveHandles is $19.95, basically the same as Apple's Lightning cable.  The Trunk doesn't look like Apple's cable though, other than the Lightning connector on one end and the USB connector on the other.  The cable itself is short, thick, and bendable, so you can bend it into a charging stand for [...]
