Cables that can power all types of smartphones thanks to removable heads are nothing new, but a new model called Malux claims it has what it takes to replace all the other cords in your life.
With support for 100W fast charging (for USB-C laptops) and reversible charging, Malux is a magnetic cable that comes with three different types of removable connectors, namely USB Type-C, micro USB, and Lightning.

As you could easily guess, USB Type-C can be used for notebooks and new-generation smartphones, micro USB is available on a wide variety of devices, while Lightning is exclusive to Apple products. This cable promises 100W charging speed on USB Type-C, 10W for micro USB devices, and 18W via Lightning.

Malux uses neodymium magnets that keep the connectors in place, and the parent company explains that it picked high-purity copper to make sure that the cable is durable as it gets.

Many people avoid using other charging cables except the one that comes with the device. But with Malux, safety and high quality are guaranteed. Inside Malux, high-purity copper core materials were used, which ensures high efficiency and low resistance. Additionally, Malux works with Smart Chips 20V/5A 100W. The cable has been tested many times before the launch, and the results proved the excellent durability and the highest quality of materials,” it says.

Malux is made of extremely elastic and high-flex materials, which makes the cable almost impossible to break. The high level of flexibility of the cable can be checked by the cycles the cable manages. A standard cable manages 50,000 cycles, whereas Malux can complete between one to three hundred thousand.

Needless to say, everything sounds pretty good on paper, especially because such a cable can also power Android Auto and CarPlay for users out there (and we all know that finding a cable that just works is quite a challenge these days), but all the claims still need to be tested in person by each customer.

At this point, the cord is listed for crowdfunding on Indiegogo, and you can get one as part of the Super Early Bird package available for $19. The funding goal has already been reached at the time of writing, and the shipping is projected to kick off in January next year.
