OK, so we have all been there. We are trying to plug-in our phone or tablet and we flip-flop the cable 3 or 4 times to get it in the right way. As much as it pains me to say it, Apple has a good thing going with the Lightning charger. A few Android devices haveÂ USB Type-C. Yes, some solely use wireless charging too. Those are isolated devices though and aren’t the standard across every Android device and it will be a long time before they are. That flip-flop struggle for micro-USB toting device owners out there can be nothing short of frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be anymore. There is a solution that I can’t believe wasn’t created years ago called the MicFlip.
The cable is just that, a cable. It comes in a variety of color options like silver, gold and red along with a variety of lengths from 8 inches, to 3 feet to 6 feet. The cable its self is nylon braided making it feel stiff and solid, not cheap and flimsy. The magic in the cable is just at the tip. It is an elongated gold-plated hexagon tip that is housed in an aluminum casing that allows you to plug it into your device no matter which side is up. Something so simple certainly makes life less annoying when charging.
