Product Description

Is there anything that doesn't charge via USB anymore?

Griffin has re-invented three of our most requested connectors as easy-to-pack, no-tangle mini-cables.

Three universally useful USB cable adapters for your computer in one handy kit: USB to mini-USB (used in cameras, MP3 players and many portable USB devices), USB to micro-USB (used in smartphones and compact USB players), and USB to Apple's 30-pin Universal Dock connector (used in iPod, iPhone, and iPad). Compact and pocketable, these min-cables are great for laptops, mini-notebooks, and more. Tuck them handily into your backpack, handbag, or carry-on.

If you need to pack light and don't have the patience for tangled cables, this set is perfect. As you can see, it includes a mini-USB, a micro-USB, and an Apple-specific cable. All three will sync and charge. The entire set weighs next to nothing and takes up almost no space in your bag. For those of us espousing one-bag travel, these are simply the best way to go.

Another advantage of their short length and rigidity is that the cables can't really suffer any wear from being bent around and tied up for storage. I know it sounds unlikely, but I've had my iPhone cable die mid-trip on me before because the cable just gave out from being twisted and bent around so much. Naturally, that can't happen with these. To me, being able to know that my cable is going to work is worth it.

Just to be fair, their short length means that you'll need to be close to whatever it is you're going to plug into. These aren't going to reach from a hotel wall outlet to the table. Rather, these are perfectly designed for connecting your device to a laptop while it's sitting on a desk.

This is a really nifty (all be it expensive) set of connecting cables best recommended for laptops with desk-level USB ports. We use them to connect either a Kindle, Iphone or Garmin to our laptop (each uses a different cable) and we understand they will also work with a Blackberry and similar products with standard connectors.

Measuring less than 3 3/4 inches including the connectors on both ends, these cables are light, seem well-constructed, take up virtually no storage space, do not tangle, and CAN be given a "1/2 twist" to insure that the connected item lies face-up.

I appreciate that these don't take up much space in my briefcase, but wish the ability for 180 degrees of twist was engineered into these cables. With some devices, they'll lie upside down because the cable plug orientation is fixed.

I have now bought 2 sets of these to keep one with each of my laptops and I couldn't be happier. These take next to no space but allow me to sync and charge everything I own. Finally, if you need longer cables you can simply carry one USB 2.0 extension cable and use it with whatever cable you are using at the time.

Pros:
- Tiny
- Appropriately flexible: not as flexible as a normal cable, but not completely rigid either
- Complete: syncs/ charges nearly every modern device that exists - iphone, android phone, ipad, kindle, hard drive, etc.
- Heavy Duty: these should outlast any of my regular cables

Cons:
- Short (for obvious reasons)
- USB 2.0 (adequate, but not future proof)

Conclusion:
I can't think of a better solution to have every cable I could possibly need in such a small package. I highly recommend these to anyone who travels, or even just transports a laptop to and from work or school and wants to be prepared.

4.5 Stars

I absolutely love these cables as they are short, sweet, and sturdy. I won't really repeat what other reviewers have said other than the fact that these cables are great for travels and fits great in the (middle) zipper pouch of the AmazonBasics Universal Travel Case for Small Electronics and Accessories (Black).

+Charge and Sync
My main concern when buying these was that they had to no only charge but also sync for android (as some of the retractable cables do not sync). I am happy to report that these cables both charge (via outlet and computer) and syncs flawlessly for both android and apple (as expected) - I have had no problem using the MircoUSB with android phones, the Mini-USB with a 2.5inch hdd, and the Apple cable with the iTouch and iPhone.

-Upside Down MicroUSB Cable
The only thing preventing these cables from getting a perfect rating is the fact that the MicroUSB cable is "upside down" - meaning that the phone's screen is facing the table thus requiring that you bend the cable almost in half to see the screen.

I had been looking for something short, tough and that wouldn't tangle. These cables were PERFECT! It will sync and charge my iPhone 4. I haven't used the other included USB cables yet, but I have no reason to believe they won't work just as well.

The Apple connector came with internal line break.
The vendor is very kind and immediately replaced the complete set with no charge.
However, the replacement also came with internal line break.
I gave up.

This is actually the third set of these I have bought. To be clear, I have a set of these at home, and one I carry with me (for cell phone charging). Unfortunately, I let the micro USB get crushed in some heavy machinery, so I decided to buy a new set.

Why a whole new set? Well, I can never have too many cords (I have a tendency to misplace things), and I have yet to see a comparable product which so wholly meets my specific requirements (compact, resilient), and certainly not one for such a reasonable price.

I really have nothing bad to say about these.

P.S. The crushed micro USB still works, but is a bit finicky now, so this is more of a preemptive replacement.
