Before USB Type-C replaces every charging cord you have to have a quarrel, the LMcable have a commitment to play hard with both iOS and Android devices at the same time. Its brilliantly engineered connector supports Lightning ports, and microUSB ports, at the same time, without a need some adapters.
Some people say, we have to get more briliant about this stuff. Usually when a charging and sync cable boasts support for both iOS and Android devices, like with Tylt’s Syncable-Duo, it was included an adapter to stick on the end to convert it from microUSB to Lightning. If that adapter error, though, all stuff that you’re left with is an expensive microUSB cable, which is useless for charging iPhones and iPads. This is a big deal for some reason.
The LMcable instead features a 2-in-1 connector that fits in both microUSB ports and Apple Lightning, allowing almost any device to charge or sync data when the other end of the cable, give a touch a traditional USB port, is plugged into a computer. this idea is elegant to anyone that ever need a fast solution , before USB Type-C launched en masse.
To get this one, you just can’t buy the LMcable yet. It’s starting life as a Kickstarter project that’s already blown well past its modest $5,000 funding goal. So the creators have the money they need to put this brand into production, but the usual risks and pitfalls of a crowdfunding project are still at play here, including unexpected technological hurdles that have sidelined so many other troubling devices.
As a brand that launched in public, we also feel obliged to point out that there is no mention of this cable being MFI-certified. Does that mean it’s guaranteed to burn down your house or damage your phone if used to charge it overnight? Probably not, since it doesn’t look like the creators of the LMcable are out to rip anyone off using cheap components. Although it’s difficult not to be overly-cautious given how dangerous some replacement charging cables can be.
This magical single cable that works in much function every device you own that needs charging? That just might be worth the risk. And if you want to pre-order an LMcable for yourself, with delivery expected as early as April, all that’s needed is only a $15 donation to its campaign, and maybe some crossed fingers that everything goes smoothly as it moves into production.
