GREAT Cord, a Real Innovation
I got one of these for my 87 year old sister in law. She is NOT technically inclined, but depends on her ipad & phone. It is a real revelation, she loves how easy it is to connect compared to the tiny USB-B and appple wafer connectors. Get one for your Lady, she'll love you!
Tips for iPhone users
by Tom Tate
I purchased one for use at my PC where I change a variety of USB devices and I loved the results. I packed away three separate USB cables and reduced the clutter at my computer. I loved the cables so much, I purchased two more - one for the bedside and another for my car. I discovered two things that iPhone users need to be aware of. First, You need to insert the iPhone adapter the proper way. The factory-provided cable has contacts on both sides. The adapter in this kit only has contacts on one side. In order to charge the phone, the fingers must be towards the back of the iPhone. Second, it does not work with Apple CarPlay in my new Subaru Outback. It will charge the phone but does not connect the programs and activate the apps I like to use such as Sygic and Spotify. Is this a fatal flaw? Not in the least. The cable and adapter set is a great alternative to multiple cables.
This the third one of these I've bought. They work great...love the magnet connection and the swivel.
I love this! I carry my phone in my pocket and this thing keeps the power plug port from filling up with pocket lint. It also protects the port from the constant plugging and un-plugging that goes with the charging process. I wish I had had these for the first 2 tablets I bought as the ports on those tablets are now loose and un-reliable from the constant plugging and unplugging!
