The LiteWire charges your gear faster than ever


Are you really bad at keeping track of charging cables? If the answer is yes, then you likely have links to the next two or three you plan on purchasing saved somewhere on your computer. It’s not hard to lose those things when you’re shuttling between class, work, home, coffee shops, or wherever else you end up. Of course, it would be easier to keep track of your cable if it was attached to something else you can’t stand to lose.

Leaving your keys behind is basically not an option, so why not get a charging cable that will attach to them? The LiteWire is pocket-sized, can attach to your keys, and will only hook into your computer, so there’s little to no chance you’ll have of leaving it plugged into a wall outlet. Not only does it try to make itself easy to keep track of, it is said to charge your devices two times faster than other options out there. There’s also the bonus of it having a very small connecting wire so it can’t get tangled up with all of your other cables.

This has a USB on one side, and on the other is a microUSB and lighting connector so that regardless of what sort of gear you need charged, you’ll likely have enough options. Another feature is that it will protect your device from any accidental data transfer or possible theft of data. If you’re willing to part with $15, you’ll be able to get your very own LiteWire in green, orange, grey, blue, or purple.
