I wonder if most people have tried to pull a tangled cable out of their pocket or bag when their mobile phone needs charging on the go - for example from a portable battery?
We have at Sandberg and it has led us to make charging cables that cannot get tangled. These are the 15 cm short flat cables. Easy to slip into your bag or pocket.
Anders Partida Petersen, Product Manager at Sandberg A/S, says: "I travel a lot and many times I have stood and untangled my charging cable from everything else in my bag. No matter how much effort I make to roll it up nicely before I put it back, it has a special ability to get tangled up with everything else in the bag. It's so annoying and something had to be done. And so we did it."
The cables are not just for charging but also for synchronisation. Using a short flat cable rather than the long phone cable gives a little more order on the desktop when the phone is right next to the computer's USB connector.
The cables are available in three versions, so 98% of all phones on the market today are covered.
