Product Description

Offer Type: Micro USB Cable | Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

The Luminid USB is a USB A to micro USB charge and sync cable with a built in capacitive touch light. Micro USB is tiny and can only be plugged in one way, which is awesome because it means thinner phones and tablets. But it can also make it hard to find the port in the dark. The Luminid USB solves this problem simply and creatively. It features a capacitive touch LED light that illuminates as soon as it's touched, allowing users to see where they're plugging in their phone. As soon as the cable is released, the light goes off so it doesn't annoy users while they are sleeping or watching a movie.

Style Name: Lightning CablePackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
Update June 14, 2015: No longer recommended. When I updated to IOS 9.3.2 I got a message this cord was not approved by Apple and "may not work" which in fact it does not. No point in buying it now, it had worked perfectly with the prior IOS versions but not with the most recent update. Save your money.

I just received this, it seems to work exactly as advertised and is quite bright. The light is activated by touching the "business end" of the plug, it shuts off immediately when you let go of it. Since I do a lot of reading and iPad activity in the dark, this should be perfect for my situation. I ordered this directly from the manufacturer, received it in 48 hours, and it cost slightly less, including postage.

Note on the photos: plug being attached to an iPad Air. This has a 3' cord.

Style Name: Lightning CablePackage Type: Standard Packaging
Update: I use may alarm on my phone to wake me up in the morning. If it is dark out, the lights are too bright when waking up. Maybe I'm not a morning person but this was starting to frustrate me. Last night, I plugged it in and the light did not turn off when I set the phone down. I unplugged the phone and the light stayed on. I plugged it back in and the light still was on. So I removed the cable and replaced it with a different one. I'll keep it around as a backup, but I won't be using this cable regularly.

This cable is different than your traditional Apple lightning cable. At first, I found the light activation a cute gimmick as I went to plug in a device. I have used this cable to charge my iPhone 5S and iPad Air. I did have an issue with the connector breaking off in the iPad when my kid was using it. I contacted the seller and they sent me a replacement right away. I will be keeping this cable away from my kids. The benefit of the light does not really help them anyway.

Pros:
1. No errors charging
2. The light is helpful for plugging in your phone at night. I liked this feature.

Cons:
1. I wish the metal of the lighting connector went farther into the plastic portion of the cable. I think that would help strengthen the connector 2. The LEDs are not pointed to the connector. This makes handing the phone on a dark morning a bright experience.
3. The LEDs don't always shut off.

This is the greatest idea since flashlights. I always come to bed after my husband is asleep and then fumble around trying to plug the charger into my iPhone in the dark. This makes it so easy and no bright lights to wake up Papa Bear! Very happy with it.

I liked this idea in concept, however, when the tip breaks off after 1 month of use, it's a waste of money. My wife had been using it for a couple of weeks. The iPhone never fell while plugged in or anything like that, she just went to unplug her phone and the tip came off.

I have reviewed a lot of different chargers, but this one is definitely unique and nothing like I have used before. This one has a built in capacitive touch light to help users find their plug in their phone in the dark. And if you are like me you can all relate to this problem and I think I can testify for everyone when I say you have had to try multiple times to plug your charging cord in your phone at night. Well this cord definitely comes in handy to fix just that!
Testing the Sewell Direct Luminid Touch
I have been using this charging cord for about a good week now. Every time I go to charge my iPhone 6s I have yet to have a problem. No errors pop up and my phone charges just fine. This is because this cord is MFI certified. What this means is "Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad" . This is a licensing program that is given to developers of hardware and software peripherals that work with various Apple products. So if you are going to buy a charging cord for you apple product make sure it is MFI certified or you will be having problems with it down the road!
Like I always say in all of my videos and reviews, I prefer a charging cord that has nylon or Teflon cords. The reason I always say this is because it will drastically decrease the chances of your charging cord breaking over time. This one is not made of either of those materials; instead it uses a durable PVC jacket that is supposed to give strain relief. As on now I have had no problems with this, but I do expect it over time to have wear-and-tear.
Now the function you have been waiting for… The Direct Luminid Touch that this cable provides. I have to admit this light has come in handy every time I go to plug in my phone when it is dark.

I love this cord. I love it.
This is easily one of my favorite purchases on Amazon. I was just looking for a simple USB-Lightning connector to keep my iPad charged in the office and in the car. I picked up one of these, and I'm very likely going to pick up another. It's everything you'd expect from an average Lightning cable and then some. The cord itself feels well-done and both of the joints look like they're well built. Time will tell, but no problems thus far.
The feature that sets this cable apart from any other I've owned is the light. The charge tip itself is a bit bigger than usual, but it's worth it. Inside the plastic is a set of LEDs and some sort of capacitive contacts. When the USB end is plugged in, the Lightning end lights up on any skin contact. In the dark, when you're fumbling around for the tip, this is beyond useful. All you have to do is touch some part of your skin to the shield and bam, there's the tip.
The only real complaint I have is that occasionally the LEDs won't come back off after a device is plugged in. I'll set my iPad down, plug it in, and lay down while the lights don't extinguish. It's not overbearingly bright, but it's annoying. If there was some circuitry that prevented the LEDSs from coming on when there was passing current, I would have zero complaints.
Seriously, though, this thing is amazing. I totally recommend it.
