Curly Cable for iPad and iPhone


It's a Kickstarter project already funded at three times the level required to move into production — with 54 days to go.

Pretty impressive.

From the Kickstarter website:


Curly Cable

This project is dedicated to all very intense iPad and iPhone users.

At the end of the day we always run out of batteries — and that's when we need more to use our iDevices.

But — common recharging cables are VERY SHORT and they make the use of the iPad and iPhone very uncomfortable.

That's why we propose to you the Curly Cable: an extendible spring cable that allows you to keep using your devices — in a comfortable way.

The Curly Cable never tangles and extends from 8 inches to 70 inches (20cm to 180cm).

Curly Cable is long enough to let you relax on a couch and:

• watch an entire movie (without draining the batteries) 
• play your favorite video game nonstop
• talk for hours to your friends
• surf the web all night


$15 gets you one once they start churning them out.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Curly Cable for iPad and iPhone:


A sub-one-meter charger wire requires you to crouch down to use your handset or your iPad while it’s plugged into a baseboard-level socket. You may even need to get down onto all fours to make a phone call. The inventive team at Dev DESIGN 2.0 has thus come up with a springy solution for a tangle-proof coiled cord which extends from 20 centimeters to 180 centimeters: the Curly Cable.

I've actually had a few of these for the iPhone...got them from China. The only time they are useful is so that I can carry them in my bag without having to wrap them up. Every other time, they are actually annoying in the sense that they are always pulling and tearing the cable out of the bottom.

The only way to keep this from happening is to get one of those ones that you had to press into the side and clip. And then...you have to problem of walking away with the device and almost having the fragile electronics on the bottom damaged (as I've had to get an iphone repaired with one like this that was a straight cable).

These days, I just buy several cheap cables and leave one in every place I have to haunt and BARELY touch the one that I have wrapped up in my bag so that I don't have to wrap it again. $2 a piece from almost any Chinese importer...hell. I leave a few in ex's cars that have USB chargers just so that I don't have to think about it (that is the ones that haven't yet picked up a decent phone).
