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 have 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.

The MicFlip back story puts the product being one of those IndieGoGo campaigns that was wildly successful and actually turned into a shipping product. Winner Gear pulled out 1115% of their goal on August 7th with a whopping $150,877. They still have the page up for you to order your cables still. A little over a week ago they got more of the red/black variant in stock and are selling them for $30 for a pair of 6 footers. A single gold is $12 and the silver is sitting at $15. They are also tossing in free world-wide shipping on all orders. All of which is slightly less than you can get them on Amazon as they sit at $19.99 each.

Interested in snagging one? Head to their IndieGoGo order page or over to Amazon and get your hands on it.

    Yea, why did it take this long for a cable this long? Now that we are trying to phase Micro USB out, lol
