Simpleware: The holy trinity of USB cables

Posted by in Simpleware

Innergie Magic Cable Trio

If you’re anything like me, cursing the inability of consumer electronics manufacturers to standardize connectivity options is one of your favourite pastimes. I like things to be simple, and now – courtesy of Innergie, it appears my USB meltdown days are coming to an end.

 

Dubbed the Magic Cable Trio, this little 20 cm gem of a cable offers a standard-sized USB plug on one end and a microUSB plug on the other – which is a rather underwhelming feat. Magic, however, arrives in the shape of three included converters which are daisy-chained to provide mini USB and proprietary Apple connectors.

 

Granted, separate converters will do the job, but the Magic Cable Trio’s offers an anti-decoupling design in a small, aesthetic package that should reduce the likelihood of accidentally losing parts of the chain. And, at $19.99 USD, it’s hardly expensive.
