Save your jack with Replug

MacBook owners are familiar with MagSafe, the breakaway magnetic plug design that prevents damage if the power cable is yanked away from the laptop.  Replug can help do something similar for 3.5mm headphone jacks.  It features a flexible elbow and a non-magnetic breakaway plug tip that can protect your device from undue stress.  Available in black or white standard 3.5mm versions and an iPhone version $12.95 each.  Also available are cable extension versions and replacement plug tips.

    Now that’s cool. Going to search for some to buy right now.

    Forget the audio jack, give me one for the power connector. Already had to replace the jack twice on my sister-in-law’s laptop.

    Talked to a sales rep yesterday and he claimed they were coming out with one compatible with the iPhone 3Gs microphones this summer.
