I’ve finally had a chance to peruse the OneCable (mentioned in an earlier post) from MobileFun.co.UK. For those of you that missed the original post, the OneCable is a unique multi-tasking accessory for the device agnostic.
The accessory is a housed retractable flat cable, USB on one end for connection to a PC or Mac, and the other a Hydra-like collection of adaptors. The outermost is Apple’s standard 32 pin connector used on all their mobile devices (save the diminutive iPod Shuffle). Pull the base of the 32 pin connector and the adaptor slides up and hinges to the side to reveal a male Mini USB connection, and beneath that a Micro USB connector.
I’ve used the OneCable for a variety of tasks- recharging and syncing my various iOS devices, recharging my ZaggFolio’s Bluetooth Keyboard, and recharging a Kindle Touch. At work it gets duty recharging a host of departmental iPhones and the occasional Android handset. The retractable cable makes the accessory much easier to carry about (and keeps the desktop beneath my iMac less cluttered)- a gentle tug on both ends of the cable and it neatly retracts back into its housing.
