Bottom Line

If you suffer from Apple cable's fraying at the ends these can be useful if you buy many at a time.

Would you buy this?

How do you pull a charging cable out of your mobile device? Do you yank the cable from half way down or carefully pull from the connector at the end?

Having used Apple’s USB charging cables for years, we’ve found them to be incredibly robust. However, Tudia tells us that fraying and breakage is acommon issue and that their clips reduce strain on the connectors by 80%. The ‘klip’ is made from silicon and plastic and fits behind either end of Apple’s Lightening connectors. You’re still pulling the cable (it’s actually harder to remove the plug by directly pulling the connector with the Klip attached), but strain is apparently reduced.

We tried attaching it to some Universal USB charger cables but many of those already have rubber supports behind the connector which not only do the same job as the Klip but makes attaching a Klip awkward and pointless.

Ultimately, we’ve not experienced a problem with breaking Apple charging cables but if you have this solution could work for you. They’re only available online though - in five different colours and cost $7 per pair. You can get five pairs for $21. The problem here is that shipping is $10. That destroys these as a value proposition (unless you’re buying many of them) as they cost almost as much as a new official cable ($29) and more than the third-party cables which they’re supposed to save you from buying.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
