I don’t know about you, but I like to have a status LED on my gadgets that lets me know when they are fully charged so I don’t have to manually turn them on to check the battery level. Most of the Android smartphones that I’ve owned have this feature, but Apple’s iPhones and iPads never have, which I find odd. The power cord for Apple’s MacBooks have a small LED that changes from amber to green when the battery has been fully charged, but a similar feature has been missing from iPhones and iPads… at least till now. The flatOUT LED from Scosche is a 3ft long flat USB Lightning cable with an integrated LED at the Lightning end of the cable. The LED pulses in red while your device is charging and then turns solid blue when the device has reached full charging capacity. The flatOUT cable is available in four colors and is priced at $19.99 each through Scosche.com. Scosche also sells a micro USB version of the flatOUT cable for $17.99.
