C-Cable is a multi-functional capsule cable easy for your every day carry. With its rounded capsule headers, it will not scratch your phone screen or body if put together with your phone. 

C-Cable integrates 4 connectors in its 2 capsule headers, which includes 1 USB type-A male, 1 USB type-A female, 1 Micro USB male, and 1 lightning male connector. 

The Micro USB male connector is specially designed so it could be inserted in both normal and reversed positions. The normal position uses the upper part of the connector, and functions as the normal Micro USB connector for charging and data sync. The reversed position uses the lower part of the connector, and functions as the Micro USB OTG connector.

Charge/sync feature

With C-Cable, you could charge/sync your Android phone when connected to PC, you could also charge one Android phone and one iPhone at the same time from any charger source such as PC, wall charger, car charger, power bank, etc.

iPhone fast charging feature

Unlike most Android phones, iPhone needs special hardware charge configuration in the charger to get optimized charging current, if the charger is not compatible with that special charge configuration, only less than 0.5A charging current will be provided.

The lightning connector of C-Cable is designed to be compatible with the special iPhone charge configuration, thus when an iPhone is connected to PC or any iPhone incompatible chargers, such as Samsung wall chargers, or some car chargers or power banks, up to 2x charging current will be provided instead of less than 0.5A current, thus could shorten your iPhone charge time up to half.

Besides, the lightning fast charging feature disables the iPhone data sync function, thus keeps your iPhone data secure.

OTG feature

For OTG (On The Go) supported Android phones, through OTG connector, you could charge iPhone from Android phone, or connect USB storage, joystick, mouse, keyboard, camera, printer, etc. to your Android phone.

There are two C-Cable types. Type I is a key chain C-Cable, which could be easily tied to your key chain for your every day carry. Type II is a 1 feet (30 cm) long cable, with each header being a rounded capsule, so it could be easily put in your bag or tied to your backpack.

We have blue and orange colors for type I, and blue color for Type II. We will add more colors for your selection as stretch goals.

C-Cables could be linked through the USB type-A male and female connectors, thus provide more features, such as charge 2 Android phones at the same time or charge one Android phone from another OTG supported Android phone.

Risks and challenges

Our prototype is a fully functional cable, and we have found a cable manufacturer in China which has many years experience on manufacturing various cables, we have confirmed with them on our C-Cable production, along with the manufacture process and schedule, so we are confident in delivering C-Cable to you on schedule. That to be said, there is always the possibility of delays due to things beyond our control at the manufacturer’s facility. We will keep you closely updated with the progress and work hard to deliver the product on schedule.
