Just about every USB device once purchases comes with a USB cable. However, any person who has a lot of USB devices can veritably explain that not all USB cables are created equal. We first saw Aviiq’s ReadyClips USB cables at CES this year. This trio includes cables with a standard USB A male connector on one end and a micro USB connector (for phones, primarily), mini USB connector (for cameras and such), or an iPod connector.
The ReadyClips come individually in a slim black and pink box. On the box is a picture of the cable inside, showing the USB micro, USB mini, or iPod adapter.
Each stubby, short cable has a certain color of tip and writing on it. The iPod cable is yellow, the mini USB is blue, and the micro USB is orange. The end that has the unique connector has a thicker end that has a clip on it. The clip is suitable for hanging on a backpack’s internal pocket or a true geek’s shirt pocket.
