You probably own a few battery-powered devices, maybe one or two phones, a camera, Bluetooth headset, etc…, and each requires a different cable. It’s also easy to forget bringing the right cable, and once your device runs out of battery you’re out of luck.
inCharge 6 universal charging cable aims to solve this first world problem by offering a single cable that supports devices charged through USB Type-C, Lightning or Micro USB port, and small enough to hook to your keyring so you never forget it. Alternatively, the company also offers a 1.5-meter version of the cable.
The cable also allows you to charge a device from another device, and transfer data between the two (Charge & Sync) as illustrated below.
To keep the cable as portable as possible, neodymium magnet keep the two end of the cable together when folded so it’s about the length of a key during transport.
inCharge 6 launched on Indiegogo a few days ago, and they’ve well surpassed their 10,000 Euros funding target with close to 180,000 Euros raised so far. A pledge of 12 Euros / $13 should get you one universal charging cable, but if you prefer the longer 1.5-meter version, 17 Euros / $19 is required. They also have bundles with different quantities up to 5 pieces for 45 Euros / $50. Shipping is expected for December 2019, but there’s no information about shipping costs, and it looks like backers will be informed once the rewards are ready to ship.
