REVIEW – Cable types have come and gone, but cable clutter remains with us no matter what. Cable ties are nice but sometimes, cables just want to make a rat’s nest all on their own. The Magtame cables use the power of magnets to tame your cables.
What is it?
What’s in the box?
I received a USB to Micro USB Magtame cable, and a USB-C to USB-C cable. They come in 1m or 1.5m lengths.
They also come in Lighting variants as well.
Design and features
They’re just… cables. They do have a premium feel with the braided jacket and heftier feel.
But look! The Magtame cables coil effortlessly without the use of cable ties.
I discovered the magnets allow you to coil the cables in different degrees of tightness. Below is the same cable coiled up three different diameters.
I wasn’t sure how to illustrate how this coils up, so here’s a GIF animation illustrating how simple it is.
What I like
- Braided jacket feels premium
What I’d change
- More colors would be nice (only black and silver)
I can see Magtame cables as part of my “go bag” where messy cables just clutter everything up. If you demand that your cables behave, then give the Magtame cables a look! They’re more expensive than your junk drawer cables, but these are cables you can tame with Magtame.
