How frustrating to be traveling and in need of a USB cable, and discover that yours has gone missing, or perhaps was left behind. No problem. Just reach into your wallet and pull out the ChargeCard. No, not the credit card, but the ChargeCard credit-card-size USB Charging Cable. Built into the ChargeCard, which is about double the thickness of a regular credit card, is a slender flexible pop-out rubber tongue with a USB plug at its tip. Protruding at one end of the otherwise rigid card is a 30-pin connector for iPhone 4/4S, or a micro USB connector for Android phones. A ChargeCard for the iPhone5 is due out by July. Just plug the two connectors into appropriate ports and you’re ready to charge your device or sync data. Then slide the ChargeCard back into a spare card slot for the next emergency.
USB ChargeCard is about $25. Info at www.bitemyapple.co.
