Tylt iPhone Band Car Charger Dash

Smartphones and tablets burn a lot of battery power due to their big screens and their constant connectivity to the network. Most of us have chargers and USB cables all over the place – at home, at the office, in the car … etc.

Car chargers haven’t evolved a lot since we started using them 10 years ago. Apart of increasing the charging power, the auto charger manufacturers kept them the same. If you use a dedicated car charger the old pig-tail cable looks nasty and it never stays where you wanted it to stay. On the contrary, if you use a USB plug (the ones that hooks up into the lighter source and it only outputs power to USBs – you must have noticed that most USB cord are stiff – so placing the cord in the position you want it’s a big hassle.

The guys over at Tylt came to a proposition to solve the above issues – The USB Band Car Charger. As the name suggests the cable has the shape of a band which is fully non-tangle and easy to manage.

Some of the Band Charger‘s features:

  • Has an iPhone 30 pin plug on one end – so it’s compatible with any iPhone model until the iPhone 5; and any iPad (less iPad 4)
  • Also features a plain USB plug for a second device
  • Output Voltage: 5V
  • Output Current: 2.1 Amp
  • Cable Length: 2 feet (that’s about 60 cm)
  • Cable Thickness: 1/10 of an inch (that’s about 3mm)

How do you manage your car charger cords? What advantages you see with this new type of cord? Let me know in the comments.
