Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable

I bought a few cheap China imitation USB to Lighting cable from DealExtreme and the quality is really horrible especially when it comes to fitting the Lightning end to your iPhone. After that, I told myself I will never get any cheap Lightning cable anymore.

The Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable is the shortest USB to Lightning cable that I can find that is of good quality. Apparently, it seems to be an Apple exclusive and I can only get it from the Apple Online Store in Singapore. I can’t even find the cable being listed on the official Belkin Singapore website.

Bought the Griffin Retractable USB Charge Cable with Lightning Connector from BestBuy‘s 5th Ave store for US$24.99 and after a 8.875% tax, it cost US$27.21 (S$34.62).

I always wanted a good quality retractable lightning cable just for the fun and “less messiness” of it. This Griffin retractable lightning cable measures 10cm in length, 4cm in width, 1cm in thickness and weights 35g! The total length of the lightning cable when it is fully unwind is about 0.7m.

Apple’s first Lightning to USB Cable was 1 meter in length when it was first launched in September 2012.

In February 2013, Apple released a shorter variant of it which halved that length and again in September 2013, Apple released a longer variant of it which is twice the length.

Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter

Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter is retailing for S$20.90 and has a feature that most audio splitter doesn’t have (even the overpriced Belkin Audio Splitter), which is the ability for one of the two connected earphones to support microphone.

An audio jack splitter allows two person to share music from just one device each using their own earphones. Moshi did a very good implementation by allowing one of the earphones to be the master (the one with the microphone icon) and hence the ability to use the microphone (if your earphones comes with it) to answer any incoming voice/Skype calls. Of course, if the other party’s earphones are still plugged in, he or she will be able to listen to your conversation.

Griffin Coiled USB-to-Lightning Cable

Got the Griffin Coiled USB-to-Lightning Cable from Challenger for S$39 (S$31.20 after a 20% member’s discount) for use in the car. I always have the thought that coiled cables are meant to be used in cars, am I the only one who thinks like this?

When it is coiled, it is 13″ (~33cm) (measured by me) and when it is fully stretched, it is about 4ft (120cm) (according to the specification printed on the box).

Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector

Been waiting for the Innergie MagiCable Duo Lightning Connector for a long time, ever since Apple announced the Lightning cable. After more than a year, Innergie finally released it!

I bought it at Wheelock Place’s EpiCentre for S$49. The only reason I bought it is to blog about it, otherwise I see no reason to get this overpriced cable. Seriously, S$49 for a cable that has just both Micro USB and Lightning connection? Amazon is selling it for US$30, which is slightly cheaper.

Lifetrons – High Tech Multi-Tool Adaptor (Lightning Edition)

Got the Lifetrons – High Tech Multi-Tool Adaptor (Lightning Edition) when I was on the plane (Thai Airways) for US$69 (S$87). It is expensive, but I don’t think it is overpriced.

The High Tech Multi-Tool Adaptor is like a Swiss Army knife for gadget. It has 3 cable heads (Mini USB, Micro USB & Lightning) for syncing and charging, a SIM card holder and a phone stand.
