Sometimes it’s the little things that can help a desk feel less cluttered and more pretty, and so I really appreciate the new Belkin MIXIT metallic USB cables. Metallic, as in silver, gold or space gray. As in, matching your iPhone, iPad, MacBook or new gold MacBook 2015.
The 6-inch USB-to-lightning cable is the perfect length to keep the cord tangles to a minimum on a desktop or for travel, though I do love 4-foot cables so I don’t have to answer a phone with my head against a desk or outlet. Plus the braided cable is super rugged, so it’s not going to fray any time soon.
Oh, and hallelujah for Apple certification. Which in human terms, means you don’t get that annoying this device may not be supported blah blah blah message pop up on your phone every time you plug it in.
If you’re in the market for a new cable anyway, why not get one that looks this great? Besides, the reviews sure beat those for Apple’s own cables.
