It has truly been an inspiring journey since we launched the project. We have received so many pieces of great advice from our backers and a lot of them mentioned USB-C. You asked, we made it! Now USB-C is "officially" incorporated into the family of AnyLink, and we call it AnyLink ULTIMATE:)
Welcome all the USB-C devices join AnyLink family, including: USB-C mobile phones like Nexus 5X and 6P, USB-C tablets like Nokia N1 and HP Pro 608, USB-C laptop like the New MacBook and Chromebook Pixel.
Please check out our new demos at the "Demos of Features in Action" section and take a look at the amazing features of AnyLink Ultimate. Actually, you can be much more creative than us and link even more devices.
Everyday, we come across battery issues. Although there are numerous solutions around us, none of them seems perfect.
- Too HEAVY
- Too BIG
- NOT PORTABLE for small purse
- Always FORGET RECHARGING!
Standard Charging Cable:
- Not durable
- HARD to find power outlets!
OK, I admit sometimes I feel safer bringing my laptop on the go.
But think about the power sources around us all the time! What if there is a way for our devices to connect with each other and share their battery lives? -- What a great way to save our phones on the verge of dying!
Finally, we've got you a perfect solution - AnyLink™, making any device as a power source, is the ONLY CHARGING CABLE YOU EVER NEED!
A Magic Combination of Standard Cable and OTG Cable
You have to carry charging cables either in your work life or your social life.
What if suddenly this charging cable can be turned into an OTG cable!
(OTG is short for On The Go and USB OTG, is a specification that allows USB devices such as mobile phone or tablet to act as a host device, enabling other devices to be connected to get charged and swap stuff.)
Looks like magic, right? The coolest part is that when your friends think you only have standard charging cable and are worried about finding power outlets, you suddenly turn your phones/tablets into power sources!
AnyLink™ - LINK Almost ANY Devices
With one end of MicroUSB/Lightning switchable adapter, and the other end of revolutionary USB-A design that includes a hidden MicroUSB, AnyLink can link almost any two devices!
Ultimately, AnyLink will become the only charging cable you ever need. With it, nobody needs to be worried about battery issues anymore!
Transfer Files Between Your Phones/Tablets
Even better, AnyLink not only shares battery life, but also links social life! It can transfer files/images between phones/tablets in a lightning speed! You can even instant-view full-size images on another device without transferring!
Turn Your Phone into Computer
With Micro to USB-A Female adapter (free for all Family and Love combo backers, $4 each unit for all Basic, Stylish and Friends combo backers), which is specifically designed for AnyLink, you can turn your phone/tablet into computer, connecting even more devices, like keyboard, mouse, flash drives, external hard drives, camera (incl. DSLR), printer, joystick... literally any USB devices!
View and transfer photos from flash drives, video backup and movie streaming from external hard drives. All in one AnyLink!

OTG cable has risen to the surface in recent years. It is a incredible product, however becomes useless whenever you don't have a second phone/tablet around. More commonly, we need a standard charing cable to connect our devices to computer or wall charger. So we thought, why not combine the two cables into one multi-functional cable! In this way, people will no long be worried about battery issues since they can always find a power source nearby. That is how the idea of AnyLink came into being.
Our mission is to help people lead a real simple and convenient life, being free of nuisances. We believe in the power of great products and aim to achieve the goal by creating them.
We have spent hundred of days trying to figure out how to incorporate MicroUSB into standard USB-A connector. It's challenging since it requires very precise engineering in such a small space with a telescopic joint. With tons of failure and efforts, we've finally made the perfect embedded USB connector that can be transformed into MicroUSB.
Our final prototypes have been well tested and work super great! Our manufacturer is ready to go. We need your support to help this product bring more convenience to people's life. Every dollar pledged will go towards manufacturing, quality assurance, packaging and shipping.

Risks and challenges
The technical issues have already been solved and our prototypes are working great. AnyLink with 1m long cable has already passed MFI certificate. For portable convenience, we also developed AnyLink with 15cm short cable but yet to pass MFI. Therefore the short version is not listed as a choice in the campaign. We are still working hard to make it pass MFI and be available for backers.
We are collaborating with one of the most prestigious cable manufacturers in China. The quality of AnyLink will be super high-end. We have thought about providing more color choices to backers, but for now we'd rather keep it two colors to ensure Feb delivery.
Although OTG technology is widely adopted, there are still several old models that don't support it. Please make sure your phone or tablet support OTG technology (Google your phone model with "OTG") before you back this project. But it only matters the USB-A+MicroUSB end (power source side), for the Lightning+MicroUSB end (power output side), it is compatible with any phone/tablet with standard Lightning or MicroUSB.
Thanks for all your support! We are committed to making the best product for everyone. Hope you will enjoy it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
