But what if one cable can deal with this huge struggle while also addressing a second huge problem with USB cords?
Enter SPEEDY, a magnetic coiling charging and data cable that comes in four different versions, namely USB-C to Lightning, USB-A to USB-C, USB-C to USB-C, and USB-A to Lightning. So technically, it can be used with the 99 percent of the iPhones and Android devices out there.
In addition to features that are already mainstream today, such as fast charge, SPEEDY also a clever design that relies on magnetic coiling to prevent the cords from tangling. The magnets also make it super-easy to carry the cable around with a laptop if the case of the device uses metal.
For Android Auto and CarPlay users, Speedy therefore promises to fix two big headaches. First, it comes with a high-quality build and speed to run both Android Auto and CarPlay flawlessly. And second, it keeps things organized in the car, as the cord would no longer fall under the seat or get tangled around the gear stick.
Posted on Kickstarter for crowdfunding support, the cable has already been fully funded, as users donated over $4,700, despite the inventor asking for only $2,000. You can secure your cable right now with a $15 donation.
The mass production of SPEEDY is projected to start this month, while the first units should be shipped beginning with October.
Is sticking with a cable isn't necessarily your first option, how about switching to Android Auto wireless? Beginning with Android 11, it's availalbe on all smartphones, as long as you also have a compatible head unit.
