STAND- UP PER­FORMER The ad­di­tion of a small geo­met­ric weight to a charg­ing ca­ble is sim­ple, yet in­ge­nious

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Upgrade -

Award-win­ning de­sign com­pany Na­tive Union has up­graded the bor­ing, mass-pro­duc­tion mo­bile de­vice charg­ing ca­ble to some­thing with a lot more prac­ti­cal­ity.

The An­chor Ca­ble is an ex­tra-long charg­ing ca­ble re­in­forced with Kevlar to make it stronger than your av­er­age charg­ing ca­ble. At just shy of two me­tres long, the ca­ble al­lows the user to in­ter­act with their de­vice while it is charg­ing – re­gard­less of where the charg­ing point might be lo­cated. It is also fit­ted with an ad­justable geo­met­ric weight that stops your ca­ble from snaking its way back to the floor when your de­vice is un­plugged. The ad­justable weight al­lows the de­vice to stay right where you left it, so there’s no need to fish around for your charger on the floor or un­der your desk.

The ca­ble comes in two colours, navy and taupe (pic­tured). Be­sides be­ing a more stylish al­ter­na­tive to bor­ing black or white, they’re said to be less prone to show­ing sur­face dirt.
