PNY has released an extremely simple yet fantastic little product – the PNY 2-in-1 Micro USB Lightning Charge and Sync Cable. This is a single cable that serves as both a USB-to-Micro USB or a USB-to-Apple Lightning cable. It works by having a Micro USB connector at one end, moulded to a removable Micro USB-to-Lightning adapter.
This is more than just a charging cable, though, as it also allows users to sync data from their devices. All current generations of the iPad or iPhone require a Lightning Cable to charge and sync, and various smartphones, tablets and cameras use a Micro USB.
Anyone with a camera that charges using USB – recent Fujifilm, Samsung, and Sony models, for example – and who uses Apple products, will find the PNY 2-in-1 cable a useful addition. It allows users to charge a variety of devices from a USB plug, laptop or power bank, as well as transfer images – or any other type of file – to their devices.
Measuring just 15cm, it’s small and compact, and saves a bit of clutter as you don’t have to carry multiple cables.
