How to Charge It Faster: Lightning Cables

I seem to run out of phone/tablet/pad juice at all the wrong moments (is there a good time?!).

Recharging can take more time than I have, so I invested in a lightning cable kit.

Behold the ubiolabs Led Lightning Cable Kit:

What I Think:

We had a lightning cable fray beyond repair, so we had one brick, but no cables. WAAAA!

This set has been perfect for multiple-person use. I snagged one of the cables to use with my old brick and Garry took the new brick and cable.

We each have lightening capabilities that suit our needs.

I LOVE the cords.

Since I tend to be hard on anything I use, these strong devils can hold up to my abuses.

We haven’t used the car charger to date, but it’s on the list to try out.

Caveat: The green LED light, indicating a complete charge, typically turns green at around 88% for us. I have no idea if that is typical.

I’m ready for the day when our devices charge themselves (DREAMER!), but until then, a lightning cable kit is worth having.

Happy Charging, Y’all!
