Alright everyone another chapter with Logiix but this time it’s about cables and plugs to charge your mobile devices. What I want to show are other alternatives and hard to find old school USB cables that people still like to use today. Some people just like to keep it old school and not always like the newer designs that Apple has put out, like their USB cables. Besides that some people might want to plug in two mobile devices at the same time, travel abroad, just want to plug in their earphone jack to a their iPod to an old stereo, prefer flat cord over a round cord, all in one cord and plug or just love bright colorful cords and plugs. Logiix has all this great stuff and much more…
My nephew Leif loves the older Apple USB cords that have the buttons on the side that clip into his old iPod Touch or iPod. He’s not alone I get people asking me can you still find these cords or an all in one type deal. You can find this product still as long as you don’t mind the simple Black and White color USB cord and Plug. I charged my iPhone and Leif’s iPod Touch with the cord. It still works great and after I was done I gave Leif the cord and plug.
The plug is really nice too as you can see up above. What I like most is you can flip down the plug so it doesn’t get caught on things. I like when you can flip a plug down like that because you can tuck it away in your backpack and not worry about the plug getting messed up or pocking into things. This is a nice cord and on the stiff side so you don’t have to worry about the cord end fraying near the plug connection. Again these USB+ Charger with Dock Cable for iPod/iPhone only come in Black and White for colors and cost $29.95.
Now lets say you just want to buy a plug and that’s it. Well Logiix has you covered with USB Power Cube. Not only dose the plug fold down but they come in 6 (Black, White, Lime, Red, Pink, Purple and Turquoise) different colors for $24.95 each. It’s a solid product and love that brush matte finish so no finger prints and scratches won’t show up as badly over time. That flip down plug is another great feature about the USB Power Cube.
What if you just want to buy the cord only ? Well you guess it right Logiix sells Sync and Charge 1m Cable for iPad, iPhone, iPod for $19.95 and in 8 different colors, Black, White, Red, Green, Orange, Light Blue, Pink and Purple. The USB cord is like the newer Apple cords but have the stiffer old school cord, so no fraying at the ends and for longer durability. You can also buy a Sync and Charge Shortie 15cm Cable iPhone for the same price ($19.95) and only comes in Black if you prefer a shorter cord to plug into a case battery or power bank.
It doesn’t just stop there because Logiix also makes it with the newer Sync and Charge Jolt for Apple Products With Lightning Connector. This cord has the same stiff cord for no fraying ends and longer durability. It comes in 6 colors, Black, White, Turquoise, Pink, Lime and Red. the cords sells for $19.95. I tested this cord on charging my iPad 4 and it works great !!!
People want to plug in mobile devices at the same time, well here’s another nifty plug called PadPower+ for iPad.
The PadPower Plug fold out and fits nicely tucked away in your backpack or messenger bag. Things I recommend you don’t do is plug in two iPads, iPad Mini, 7″ tablets or 10″ tablets at the same time. Because you can over heat the plug and cause a short or a fire in your home. This plug does get really hot when charging your iPad alone. It’s fine if you plug in an iPhone and iPad or smartphone and tablet. The PadPower+ for iPad sells for $29.95 and a great deal for a two device plug that folds in.
Here’s another great product the Power Cube JOLT has a lightening connector and plug attached together. This works with your iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPod Touch 6th Gen and iPod Nano 8th Gen. You can use this Power Cube JOLT with your iPad Mini and iPad 4 but this will only give you a trickle charge and takes about 10 hours to charge those devices. You can use this plug if you’re in a pinch and nothing else to use but don’t expect a quick charge. Even with the new 12w power charge it takes 4 to 5 hours to charge my iPad 4 to full battery. The Power Cube Jolt sells for $29.95 and comes in two colors Black and White. This is great price for an all in one plug and cord together. Plus it has that stiff cord and you all know what that means, no frayed ends and longer durability.
Some people just want one of these, a Retractable AUX .75m Cable – Black for AUX input and output with their iPods or iPhone to plug into speakers, car stereos and other audio devices. The retractable design makes storage simple and convenient. Retractable AUX .75m Cable sells for $12.95, but they make other AUX cables too. You can get Flat Flex Aux 3.5mm Cable for $14.95 and comes in 4 colors Black, Red, Orange and Purple. This cord is like the newer Apple cords with a soft rubberized plastic.
Some of the Android smartphone and tablet people might like this Flat Flex Micro USB Cable. It has the same type of cord like the Flat Flex Aux 3.5mm Cable, soft rubberized plastic. Now you’re wondering why do I have a micro USB cord ? Well I have a Mophie Battery Case, it takes a micro USB and I have a few power banks that have the same micro USB plug. Plus I’m in a house hold full of Android devices all over the place, I always like to keep extra cords on hand because you never know. The Flat Flex AUX 3.5mm Cable sells for $19.95 and comes in 4 colors, White, Red, Purple and Turquoise. You can also get one of these too a USB to Micro USB 1m Flat Cable – Black for $19.95.
The last product is a World Traveler Universal Plug Adapter. Now on the website it looked like a cube but when I got the item it looked completely different, so I’m hoping they will update the website photo. If you travel abroad a lot this universal plug adapter comes in handy and works in over 150 different countries. You can see the USB port on the travel plug, so you can plug in your mobile devices.
One side of the plug is you switch plate for the 4 different plug adapters plates, you slide off and on using the yellow push lock button.
This is you universal plug back and you would plug in your device that needs power or charging your devices. It does have a fuse you can change in and out. It does come with an extra fuse and fuses are usually pretty cheap.
Sorry for the crooked photo, but these are you plug switch plates. You get four of the standard international plug switch plates.
This is what the World Traveler Universal Plug Adapter looks like when you put it all together. I went with Euro plug adapter instead of the normal North American adapter.
You do get a little carrying bag and an extra fuse with your World Traveler Universal Plug Adapter pack. Now normally these world traveler plugs are always pricey but the World Traveler Universal Plug Adapter sells for an incredible $24.95 and only comes in White. That’s usually the cost of just for one adapter and plug when you buy one in the travel section at a retail store. I do recommend you get one of these World Traveler Universal Plug Adapter for yourself or as a gift to someone who travels a lot.
