There’s something about USB cables that makes them almost impossible to plug in correctly on the first attempt. Even after carefully looking at the plug, I somehow manage to turn it wrong way round and it won’t plug in. Winnergear created the MicFlip microUSB cable which doesn’t care which way you plug it in. It still works.
The MicFlip is USB 2.0 but it’s not your average USB cable. It is a braided nylon with extra sturdy, gold coated, corrosion resistant aluminum plugs at each end. The large Type A plug is a standard plug and is not reversible. The magic is at the end with the microUSB plug. It doesn’t care which way you insert it into the microUSB port. It fits easily either way. One of my tablets has a microUSB port that allows a regular microUSB plug to fall out but the MicFlip fits and stays securely plugged in. That was an unforeseen but welcome benefit.
The MicFlip I received for my review is about 40″ in length which is sufficient for charging a Kindle or tablet as well as data transfers between devices. The MicFlip does it all. Better still, the braided nylon cable is durable and resists the tangles and kinks that make a regular cable a pain to use. The MicFlip has a wide range of compatibility with tablets, smartphones, mp3 players, power banks, external hard drives, speakers, wearable devices, and more.
Available in 3 different color combinations, the MicFlip ads a bit of color and flair to those typically boring computer tasks we do every day. Choose a MicFlip with a Red cable and Black plugs, a Gold Cable with Gold plugs, or a Silver cable with Silver plugs. The MicFlip is also available in 3 different lengths. The shortest MicFlip is only 7.87″ (20cm) in length which is the perfect size for charging your smartphone or mp3 player. The middle size is a 39.37″ (100cm) which is comparable to most of my regular cables, but the third option is a very generous 78.74″ (200cm) for those tasks that require a bit longer cable.
