Re: Looking for a magnetic USB cable

Hi Laz,

Do you or does anyone else have this type of cable with an end that fits into Apple devices such as an Apple iPhone?

Hi Steve,

A magnetic cable is designed so that the magnetic end is detachable
and can remain inside the charging port of a device; it is held onto
the cable magnetically. This protects and prolongs the life of the
device in two ways, 1. If you snag the cable it detaches from the
magnetic tip thereby avoiding a crash to the cloor, and 2. it avoids
the wear and tear of plugging and unplugging your cable every day for
charging. This is perfect for use with expensive devices such as the
victor Reader Stream which as is well known, has a history of charging
port breakage.

I hope that helps clear it up for you.

Stay safe,

Laz

any USB cable with a magnet in it.

I think the phrase could be "micro usb cable"

If Laz is around, he could clarify.

Hi,


I'm want to buy at least one magnetic USB charging cable. I notice in
Amazon search results that there are types that is compatible with certain
devices like Android or IDevices, C type phones, micro USB and some
universal connectors. I want to make sure that the cable I need can be
used for standard connections for devices like Victor Reader stream. So
what keywords should I use?
