Introducing World's First Cross-device Magnetic Cable

Shelly Green

USB was designed to standardize the connection of computer peripherals (including keyboards, pointing devices, digital cameras, printers, portable media players, disk drives and network adapters) to personal computers, both to communicate and to supply electric power. It has become common port on other devices, such as smartphones, PDAs and video game consoles. USB has effectively replaced a variety of earlier interfaces, such as parallel ports, as well as separate power chargers for portable devices.

We often overlook the impact of our phones on our daily lives. We rely on our phones for just about every part of our day: from the alarm to wake up, to the GPS to get to work and avoid traffic, to checking emails to stay up to date with work to even social media to stay connected with our friends and loved ones.

Too many times have I heard someone say: "my phones playing up" and 6 months later they finally get a new phone and exclaim how life changing having a new phone is. The way you interact with your phone is crucial to your daily productivity and happiness.

Over the years, a further modification to the USB specification has been made for smartphones. Recently a ground breaking innovation has seen the launch of the world's first cross-device magnetic cable by asap technologies. With this magnetic cable, you need only one cable to charge all phones.

The ASAP X-connect is compatible with all smartphones and with USB-C fast becoming the major standard for all USB powered devices, the ASAP x-connect has been developed to be compatible with the USB-C. It's magnetic grip is firm and can hold up to 400 grams- strong enough to even hold an an iPad Air.

The ASAP x-connect is brilliant in every way. This 18k gold plated cable is compatible with three tip types to work with all iPhone and Android devices. What is most exciting is that It ensures an instant connection on the first attempt as It is equipped with a reversible Type A connector.
