Candywirez Micro USB to USB Sync and Charge Cable Review

Filed under: Cases and Accessories,Mobile Reviews,Mobility,Reviews |

When you think of USB cables you think of plain old black ones, sure they work but they’re just really plain. Candywirez has sent me over one of their versions of a microUSB cable and I have to say it’s certainly unique and I very much like it.  The cable is five feet long and it’s the flat or tangle free style but the best part I think is that it comes in a variety of colors. I like the colored cable because it just doesn’t blend in with all my black cables and that makes it much easier to find. Read on…

The Review::

 

The Candywirez microUSB cable comes packaged in a nice looking box.

The back of the box has a small widow showing you the connector ends.

The cable comes coiled up attached to a plastic tray.

The connector ends are sort of embedded in the plastic to keep them from moving around during shipping.

The cable is flat and made to be tangle free and has a protective coating on it. The cable is also thick and rather stiff, which isn’t a bad thing I think. The cable is 1.5m or about five feet long. The one I got for review is blue or Aqua in color but there are several other colors to choose from.

The connectors are a very shiny chromed metal and they do come with a plastic protective covering over them for shipping. The standard USB connection has the USB logo on one side and the Candywirez logo on the other.

The microUSB connection also has the Candywirez logo on it and the other side has 2A, which I’m guessing stand for 2 amps possibly.

Here’s what they look like without the plastic covering on them, very shiny indeed!

So it’s a charge and sync cable and that’s what I used it for with my HTC One and it worked just like the cable that came with phone. Nothing new and exciting about that right?

Conclusion:

 

I’m sure most people would think a USB cable is just rather boring but one like this isn’t really because it’s unique.

At first I was thinking it’s just a USB cable but then I thought about it and I like it primarily because it’s colored and it doesn’t just blend in.

I’ve got a bunch of cables floating around and I always have the microUSB cable for my phone hooked up to my computer and it’s kind of sitting there behind my monitors and mixed in with other cables. I always find I kind of have to dig around for it when I need it and I have to spend time figuring out which on is the correct one but having a colored on makes life much easier.

The cable is flat and rather thick and stiff making it tangle free and rather durable I think.

The connector ends are shiny and flashy and sure it’s not needed but it looks nice and having such a sturdy connection end can be a good thing in the long run.

The cable is about five feet long and I like the length , it’s more than long enough to connect it to the back of your computer and have the cable running to where you need. Yes there are exceptions, but most people I think have their desktop computer fairly close to their keyboard and mouse etc.

The price is $19.99 or $20 basically and yeah it might be considered expensive but it’s worth it in my opinion.

 

PROS CONS
+Long cable
+Tangle free
+Assorted colors
