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.

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

Good quality. The cord is stiff which is a little annoying if you need to flip the connector.Published 18 days ago by G. Jawhar
I ordered these drunk and thought one was a lightning cable, so that made me sad. But that's my fault, Griffin didn't force rum down my throat. Quality heavy duty cables.Published 3 months ago by Mike galante

I am confused as to the advertising that this works for iPhones. The larger one may work for older versions, but the two smaller cords don't fit the iPhone 6.Published 4 months ago by Julie
