Gadget Pick of the Day: Belkin’s MIXIT hides handy extra charging cables
Belkin has come up with a WAY better option that I think is going to be a huge hit. There are three smart additions to their MIXIT line of cables.
The Fancy Option
Made from natural leather, the MIXIT Lightning to USB Tassel is a chic handbag charm that hides a premium metallic charging cable in its tassels. Belkin says, “its fringe design takes a purse from bleak to chic, keeps the cable tidy and prevents it from getting tangled.” I also love the chic lobster clip that makes it easy to attach and swap it from bag to bag.
This beauty comes in greyish white, brown/beige, coral and black for $34.99USD.
The Functional & Sleek Pick
This is the on all the guys will want. The MIXIT Lightning to USB Keychain has a durable stick-shaped aluminum body and can easily be slipped onto a keychain, so that it’s handy when you need a charge. The charging cable is a stick that rotates 360 degrees out of the cover for easy charging. The aluminum body (available in different colour metals for $34.99) also protects the Lightning connector from damage when not in use.
“Boldly and functionally designed”, according to Belkin’s press materials, the MIXIT Lightning to USB Clip is the another cool take on the hidden cable concept. The carabiner-style clip latches quickly and securely to any backpack or bag. The braided multicolour cable comes in fun colours like blue and mint, “feisty pink” and peach, fresh purple and mint, or minimal black and white. The cable slides up into the cup-shaped cover to avoid tangles, then pulls out when you need it. It too is $34.99.
