Macneto is a multiple-purpose magnetic charging cable that allows users to quickly charge or sync their devices. The cable boosts 10x ‘Super-Speed Transfer’ and 2x Fast Charging for different devices. Macneto’s unique selling point is that it is a single charging cable that can work on virtually any mobile device out there. So if you have an iPhone, iPad, Android or any other device, you can charge it with a computer with USB Type-A as well as a new MacBook with USB Type-C.
How Macneto works is pretty simple, it enables you to remove the interchangeable connectors from either end, replacing them with the type of connector you at any given moment. The magnetic cable ships with connectors for iOS devices (Lightning), microUSB, USB-mini, USB Type-A and USB Type-C.
Ability for users to change the connectors isn’t the only thing that makes Macneto great, other parts of its hardware are also pretty neat. The cable features ‘Smart-Mag technology’, which adds a Magsafe like magnetic connector on both sides of the cable. So in case of an accidental pull the cable will come out, leaving the connector intact thus preventing your device from falling. The cable itself features a flat cable design that is capable of offering 3.1A fast charging and data transfer speeds of up to 4.8Gbps. Other features of the charging cable include intelligent light indicator, power stabilizer, surge protection and more.
While having the ability to use the cable for all sorts of devices is certainly great, it is especially useful for those iOS device users who have to switch between an older Mac and the new Macbook Pro, which only has the USB Type-C port, as now instead of carrying two separate cables for USB Type-A and Type-C you can simply carry one. In addition to that you can use it to recharge Android devices, power banks, cameras and what not.
EWO, the company behind Macneto is currently running a Kickstarter campaign where it has already achieved its funding goal with 9 days still remaining. If you want one for yourself, then you can pledge on Kickstarter project where you need to pledge at least $32 to get all the available connectors along with the magnetic cable. The cable ships in June 2017. [Macneto Kickstarter]
