Quick! What’s the worst thing about Apple?!
Ever since Steve Jobs has been gone the company has lacked innovation and direction to create new cutting edge products? Hah! You’re close, but wrong.
Cables. Or, more specifically, broken cables. It’s famous that Apple cables suck. The daily stress breaks the flex point, and they’re mega expensive to replace. Even if you’re an Android user, USB-C cables you get from the box are usually flimsy.
Well, Halo Back, the makers of high quality super cables has a Kickstarter campaign up now with a USB-C cable that you can pull a car with. No joke.
So what’s a Super Cable?
A super cable by Halo Back is one made with unbelievable strength and durability using the highest quality materials.
Their USB-C cable has some back things like an anti-slip grip, and anti-bending connector that won’t break easily. But it’s also made with bullet-proof grade Kevlar, like the stuff in bullet proof vests, as well as EMF shielding to reduce interference. We also go into the benefits of EMF shielding on USB cables and charges in our round-up article on the best USB C chargers.
And it has super performance as well. With gold plated pin connectors, this cable can handle up to 10gps data transfer speeds, which means you can download a movie in in 30 seconds or so. Fast charging is also supported 100W max output, which translates to a 50% charge on your Mac in 35 minutes.
These cables are 1 meter/ 3.3 feet in length, which is perfect for your desk or next to your bed, but might be a little long for the car.
Awesome, when and how much?
According to the Kickstarter campaign, deliveries are scheduled for April, which is only next month. The team has already hit more than $21k of it’s $4,500 goal, and since it comes from an established company, the risk here is super low. These cables are designed in Japan too, which is a testament to their old-school hardware quality.
Your options to back the campaign start at unit cable for $16, 2 cables for $23, and what seems to be the best deal, 4 cables for $26. That’s only $6.50 a cable, which is dirt cheap. There are even bigger discount family packs and office packs if you need to outfit your crew or company.
