My Belaycords Reversible USB Lightning Cable arrived this morning and I’m pretty impressed and also left with the question why hasn’t this been done much, much sooner.
USB connectors have had one major problem (until the USB C arrived) in that they had to be inserted the right way round and when you were most likely to be doing that round the back of a PC in a dark corner it was bound to lead to frustration. It seemed that you had a 50/50 chance of getting it right but ended up always 100% wrong!
The Belaycord overcomes that shortcoming by making the connector reversible and it works. Again, why has nobody done this earlier?
The cable is really well made with metal caps at both ends and a woven cable which seems incredibly long although it is only supposed to be four foot.
There’s not much more I can say about a cable other than great idea, why has it taken so long?!
