TOB Cable: One cable for everything

Janulus is proud to Introduce TOB cable. By combining the latest advances in fiber optic and electronic technology we have created one of the most exciting cable out there. And it has a specially designed connector that snaps to various adapters.

Our vision for the TOB cable was to create a cable that uses all the best of today’s technology and works with all your gadgets and has the capabilities to evolve with the future advances.

The TOB cable connector is easily plugged in and it’s circular design means there is no wrong way, it unplugs easily and protects your connectors if someone pulls on the cable.

our adapters make it easy for you to connect your devices together with just one cable you can carry in your pocket.

With your help we can make the TOB cable the new standard for our gadgets and make the future a lot more interesting. Where all our gadgets communicate in the same language through TOB.

The TOB is the perfect travel companion. Allowing you to pack only one cable that fulfills all your needs. Charge you phone, listen to music, play videos from your phone to a tv, transfer photos to your computer at maximum speed. Charge or update your GPS device and many other uses.

Faster Charging

The TOB cable is designed for fast charging meaning you can charge your phone and gadget up to twice as fast. By disabling the sync/data transfer feature your device can charge faster. TOB cable is made using heavy gauge wires that can handle the higher current.

Standard cables use wires that can’t handle higher charging speeds even if you disable syncing while charging. The wire in standard cables also gets damaged over time and may even stop working entirely. The heavy gauge wires TOB uses prevent this from happening.

Maximum Data Transfer

Using USB 3.1 TOB can transfer data up to 10 Gbps and is backwards compatible. With TOB your cable is no longer the limiting factor

HD Video
TOB cable is designed to deliver Full HD Video and our adapters are designed to fit most gadgets and TV’s on the market.

The TOB connector is patent pending and is designed to be easily connected and disconnected. It’s circular design makes it impossible to turn the wrong way. TOB Connector firmly snaps into each adapter and protects your connectors and devices if someone pulls on the cable.

Easily switch adapters depending on your needs.

If you have ever ruined your computer or gadget by tripping over the cable you will appreciate the releasable connector design.

The cable has a charge controller so there is no current on the connector until it is plugged into the female connector.

TOB puts less stress on you gadgets ports which can often cause poor connectivity between your device and the cable. TOB connector offers increased protection from water compared to most connectors used today.

The only cable you need

TOB is made from tangle free nylon. Inside the cable are heavy gauge copper wires and an optical fiber. This design means it can work with any device, has limitless potential and is future proof. By blending together the properties of copper and fiber optic technology we believe we are getting the best of both worlds. TOB heavy gauge wires also offer some potential future upgrades such as laptop charging for example. Transmissions through fiber optics are not affected by electromagnetic radiation. The fiber optic is electrically non-conductive so it’s not affected by the copper wires. Optical fibers have very low loss over long distances allowing transmission without the need for repeaters. A single optical fiber can carry 3 million full duplex voice calls and 90,000 TV channels.

We see a lot of potential in developing data transfer via the optical fiber. The current record of data transfer via optical fiber is 100 Petabits per second. The physical limitations of electrical cables prevent speeds in excess of 10 Gigabits per second. That being said we have not yet seen the physical limitations of fiber optics.

Buying all the cables TOB replaces individually would cost hundreds of dollars and not be nearly as convenient as TOB.

Adapters
You can choose various adapters depending on your device. We of course hope to see a future where computers and gadgets have a built in TOB port eliminating the need for adapters.

Our adapters make it easy for you to connect your devices together with just one cable you can carry in your pocket

Our company is an MFI designer and we work with MFI certified manufacturers.

Possible Future Advances

TOB Cable is designed for future updates in mind. One additional feature we are working on is to be able to charge your laptop. We are also very excited about future advances in data transfer using the fiber optic.

If TOB is well received we have plans of building an entire system around it with many possibilities.

Risks and challenges

We have been able to build a prototype but it may require small changes for full scale manufacturing. We will face more challenges and unforeseen product issues as we get closer to manufacturing. We are working with experienced cable manufacturers but there may be delays should we need to change suppliers. Every step in our development will be carefully selected to make this product even more special for our backers. We may need to make a few changes in materials so the product can become more durable and resistant. This can cause the final product to be slightly different from our original prototype. All of these factors can have an effect on shipping dates. We will work our hardest to achieve our set dates and deliver a product that both we and our backers are satisfied with.
