If you’re an iPhone or iPad user that commutes or travels regularly, then you’ll know the pain of forgetting to pack that Lightning cable for charging and data transfer. While micro-USB cables can be picked up in a whole host of locations, Apple’s proprietary Lightning cables can be trickier to find (and can be pricey when you do) – especially when you’re out in the sticks.
The Belkin Mixit Lightning to USB Keychain is one potential workaround. Available in a choice of five colours, the keychain is attached to a metallic protective cover that shields a flexible 75mm cable.
The cable itself can bend up to 70 degrees making it easy to connect your Apple device to a nearby charging adaptor, computer or USB hub.
The accessory is compatible with newer Apple devices, including iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone SE, iPad Air and more.
