(Pocket-lint) - This cable is pretty clever as it can charge almost anything thanks to magnetised interchangeable tips. The Infinity cable can charge phones, tablets, power banks and USB-C laptops like a new Mac.
It supports up to 100W of power delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and 4.0 ensuring a rapid charge on many devices, too. It's also fine for data transfer between devices, too.
The cable is the brainchild of Chargeasap, a Sydney-baed company. The neodymium magnetised tips for USB-C, Lightning and micro USB attach to the cable itself, meaning that you're very unlikely to lose them. They attach using a bespoke 10 pin connector which works pretty well.
What's more, the cable is USB-C at the other end, meaning it's compatible with the latest chargers.
And, should you wish to plug it into an older USB-A type socket, then you can do that thanks to a little adapter for the end of the cable. Again that is magnetic.
This doesn't provide the most secure fit side-to-side - if you bend the attached cable plug upwards or sideways it'll disconnect - but it will keep hold of a phone or lightweight tablet if it's dropped off the table. Chargeasap says the magnets are capable of holding an iPad Air.
It also means that if you're charging a device like a laptop, the cable will detach rather than the laptop coming off the table like Apple's older MagSafe tech.
It costs $30/£25 if you order in the next couple of weeks on Kickstarter and will ship in the new year. The cable has been funded many times over, with over 3,000 backers.
