  • Look Cool While Charging Your iOS Device With a Glowing iOS Device Charger


    Many Apple fans tend to go a little above and beyond to get elegant looking accessories and items to go with their Apple products and this one might end up hot on the list. Dexim recently released Visible Smart chargers which are likely to bring the geek part of many people out.

    I would of never guessed that I or people in general might get excited about a USB cable but turns out I was wrong. The product is basically a cable that glows while the device you have plugged in is charging or syncing. It “visibly shows the electrical current through the cable.” What makes the cable even more interesting is the fact that the lights actually change speed based on the battery capacity of the iOS device attached. Faster animated lights which are moving quicker indicate that the battery has lower power and thus requires more charge. As the battery continues to charge, the lights will continue to move at a slower rate and once the device is fully charged, the motion of the lights will stop to indicate that the device is done charging.

    As usual, reading about something is one thing and seeing it is another, you can watch the video of the cable in action below:



    Is this something you would consider picking up or are you just going to pass? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

      Most people charge their phones while they sleep. I suppose you could just use your regular charger/usb cable it came with tho...

      Found a few sites that sell them.

      I think this might be the company that designed/made it

      Sell.com Marketplace : Illuminated LED iphone charge cable for sale (274TZ5)

      But for $30 bucks idk if its worth it just for some animated lights on a 30 PIN usb cable. nonetheless its cool.

      I would get it, but charging $25 for this is just ridiculous!!!!! the most I would pay for it is $15 with free shipping.

      It would make more sense if it slowed down as it charged

      I had a friend by one of these recently and it died in about 3 weeks. For those 3 weeks though it was very cool.

      It does slow down...
      It's fast when the battery is low and then slows down the more the battery gets charged. After a full charge, it turns off completely.

      Sickness, but I wish it was charging as fast as it looks.

      Cool gift to give or receive, but I wouldn't buy it for myself. Not really worth the money if you've already got a charger IMO.
