What is the one mobile accessory that we should never forget to carry around when we’re going on a journey? Yes, you guessed it right: it’s the charging cable.
We charge our phones every day, and it works just right; wouldn’t it be great if the cable not only works great but looks great, too? Well, a new Kickstarter project called Juicies+ aims to do exactly that, and it has even reached its goal of $40,000 in just one day. At the time of writing, 2,015 people have already pledged nearly $62,063, which makes this Kickstarter project successful and fully funded!
Juicies+ cables will juice up your devices using anodized aluminum, which shields the circuitry of the connectors at both ends. These cables are woven, tangle free, flexible and stronger than the standard cables. They can come with either lightning or micro USB ports so that you can charge various devices like Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.
These cables have a length of 4 ft. For those who prefer technical details, on the inside we find a wire mesh which gives the cable strength, and even a MFi certification. The wire will work with any standard 12V car plug or a high-power 20 Watt wall outlet.
This is the team’s second Kickstarter project. The first one was Juicies, which were colorful cables made from sustainable recycled materials for iPhone, iPod and iPad. Back then, the cables were only available for Apple devices but now with Juicies+, the same team aims to offer a Lightning connector, and a Micro USB connector for non-Apple devices.
Juicies+ cable is available for $20 for a single cable in either silver or black color. Two cables can be bought for the price of $35. If you’re living outside the U.S. then you’ll need to add $5 for shipping. Delivery is expected by January 2014.
