Helpful Hints from joeeze: No short charging cable? Make your own!

I've spent a lot of time looking for ultra-short USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to Lightning charging cables because my cat loves to attack visible cables and wires.

The closest I've come to what I want — 2"-3"-long connectors — are the 8" C-C puppy and 12" C-Lightning cables below.


The penny dropped just now: loop these cables and Bob's your uncle. 

Now you can make any cable/wire as short as you like.

Up top, I demonstrate this revolutionary concept in a new video release from boj Studios©®.

As always, this great tip is free, the way we like it.

Lagniappe: looping the cable makes it stiffer and less attractive as a feline play focus.

If this hack doesn't work out the way you hoped it would, well, I suggest you start looking for a website/blog whose grand panjandrum isn't so inept.

Shouldn't take all that long....
