The thing about gadgets and its companion cables is this, you end up with so many cables when you actually only need a couple. Not to mention, these cables take up drawer space and more often than not are just basic charging cables which do not charge at high-speeds and tend to overheat your device. Well, that is all about to change. On this week’s ‘Crowdfunding Campaign Of The Week’, we feature Macneto, the world’s first magnetic interchangeable multi-charging cable that in its own right is a modular marvel of sorts.
Macneto is an all-in-one charging and data transfer cable, which is capable of switching out its magnetic tips to you whim and fancy, and is compatible with any device. There are a total of 5 different tips to switch around, USB Type-A, USB Type-C, Lightning, Micro and Mini. These tips attach itself to the main cable with powerful magnetic suction and is capable of charging up to twice as fast when compared to your regular cables.
For those who really monitor the way they charge their devices, you will be glad to know that the Macneto has in-built surge protection and power stabilizer to ensure your device does not overheat during charging or data transfer. Additionally, there is also a light indicator to let you know if your device is charged – which is super nifty if your device does not have a charging indicator of sorts (certain laptops or even cameras unless switched on).
Data Transfer Speed: Up to 4.8Gbps
Charging Speed: Up to 2,400mA
Warranty: 12 Months
The best feature of the Macneto has to be that it actually facilitates charging and data transfer between devices as well. The cable is able to efficiently transfer data up to 10 times the usual speed, at max transfer rate of up to 4.8Gbps to be exact.
