A Kickstarter campaign called MagCable by Hong Kong-based firm aMagic is creating a lot of buzz in the smartphone charging space. MagCable is a magnetic charging wire which saves you the trouble of struggling to attach your charging cable to your smartphone. It also prevents stressing and snapping off the charging cord.
A use case scenario for MagCable
The MagCable is constructed using a Neodyminum magnet which provides magnetic power at temperatures upto 200 degrees. This ensures the stability of MagCable over other existing charging cords.
