"A full-length charging cable, in a pocket-size package. Spooly makes on-the-go charging a breeze."

Welcome to Spooly, the most portable full-length charging cable ever. Spooly has a clever design which takes up virtually no space and is durable enough to withstand the rigours of everyday life on the move. Spooly might look tiny, but definitely lives long.

Spooly’s incredibly portable design simply would not be possible using regular cable – the Mag-System uses bespoke magnetic cable which quickly and effortlessly aligns the cable to form a perfect and secure coil. Then simply pull to un-wind – it’s that easy.

 

Whether you’re doing some urban exploring or an off-road adventure, Spooly’s form fitting case offers complete protection. The robust, yet elegant design fits comfortably in your pocket making Spooly the ultimate adventure cable.

Always there when you need it most. The Keymaster attaches to your key-ring to ensure you have a charging cable you on you at all times. Just grab you keys and go!

 

Plug in the right way, every time. This USB Type-A design is a user-friendly reversible connector that allows you to connect your cable to your device or wall outlet in any direction. Compatible with all standard USB slots.

    USB-IF Certification Program

    All versions of Spooly will be tested using the USB-IF Compliance Program which means that this cable will be certified to meet all electrical, mechanical, and environmental standards, ensuring a safe and superior user experience.

    Mag-System

    An innovative feature that took over 6 months in development, we love Spooly’s Mag-System, which is why we’d love to share an insight of the process with you. We chose hardwearing and highly flexible thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) blended with powdered barium ferrite particles in sections for our bespoke cables.

    Barium ferrite is an extremely good insulator and doesn’t allow any electrical current to flow through it, which makes it perfectly safe. These sections are then magnetized by rolling the cable through an electromagnetic field with a field strength of at least 20,000 oersteds, resulting in cables that are highly flexible, rollable, and resistant to wear and tear.

     

    Spooly Team

    Scott McCormack

    Scott has over 18 years expertise in product design, electrical and mechanical engineering. Extremely passionate about innovation and engineering, he invented his first product at 17 – an electronic and biometric security lock powered by kinetic energy. He believes that simplicity and quality make the best products. Before creating Spooly, Scott worked on design projects in India, China and the UK.

    Jinger Chen

    Jinger was born in China. She moved to the UK when she was 21 and met Scott while studying at Oxford University. Both share a passion for design. Fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and English, Jinger has many connections in China and uses these to source and work with manufacturers of the highest standards without language or technical barriers – a key role that helps manufacture Spooly’s unique components.

    Timeline

     

    Risks and challenges

    All cables shown on this page are fully working prototypes. The production line final designs are already complete. This upfront R&D has inherently reduced the amount of risks involved.

    We have partnered with one the world’s leading cable manufacturers in Shenzhen, China where we will follow the production process closely at every stage. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll make sure we keep you informed and will work as quickly as possible to solve the problem.

    We’ve done our very best to create a solid production plan. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know why and make it right as quickly as possible.
