Have you ever needed to charge your phone or tablet and search for the cable only to find this?
This is a common occurrence in our house. It is estimate that the average household has over 25 electronic items that are used on a regular basic. When you start adding them up that is a lot! With five electronically connected people in my house, we have at least 2 items each that require a cable for charging. That’s over 10 cables for only our most ‘essential’ pieces of equipment. I can’t imagine what will happen when the kids are older and have their own cell phones to add to the mess. How do you keep them organized? How do you stop fights about so-and-so stealing so-and-so’s cable? Well Nextek Energy has the solution!
I had honestly never heard of Nextex Energy before! When I was at a conference a few months ago, I was complaining to a fellow blogger, Cathy Thinking Out Loud, about how my phone never holds a charge and I can never find my cable. She highly recommend Nextek Energy!
Nextek Energy is a Canadian company out of British Columbia. They design, distribute and support high performance portable battery chargers and accessories.
NexTek Energy sent me two amazing USB cables to test out!
This cable allows you to efficiently sync and charge your electronic devices at home or on the go. It’s sleek design and bright colours allows you to customize them to your personality and make the distinguishable from other cables. They contain a build-in LED indicator that allows you check on your charging status (Red = Charging, Blue = Fully Charged). The LED light also allows you to conveniently find your cable and device in the dark. The illuminating USB cable is available in both Android (micro USB) and Apple (Lightening) and is compatible with most popular tablets, smartphones and gaming devices. It can transfer up to 480Mbps and is designed with a foil and braid shielding to reduce EMI/RFI interference.
2. Rugged USB
This cable is created for traveling on the go or for people who are rough on their cords. Instead of the sleek design, it has a bungee cord like exterior. This provide great protection for the cord and allows your cord to withstand any scenario thrown at it.
My immediate reaction to the cables were they were rugged, built well and looked like they could withstand a lot of tugging and twisting. The Rugged USB cord is the cord I carry around with me when I’m out and about. I love that it can be easily found in my purse and its strong enough to withstand pulling when I forget to unplug it when trying to exit the car! The second thing I love about them is their colours! There were so many options, that everyone in my family could be assigned their own colour to prevent identification and theft. I love the indication light on the illuminating USB cord. It is the cord that I use in my room to charge my phone over night. I was having issues with an old cord as I would plug it in and in the morning my phone wouldn’t have a charge. This caused a bit of panic, as I rely on my phone for work and to keep track of my kids. With the illuminating USB cord I can tell if its charging with single glance. Overall, I’m very impressed with the USB cords from Nextek! Stay tuned for my review on the Nextek Pocket Booster 4200.
Enter to #WIN 1 illuminating USB cord and 1 Rugged USB cord for yourself!
