Too Bad These Stylish iPhone Cables Are About To Be Obsolete

Standard iPhone charging cables are pretty boring, and they're practically begging to get covered in a layer of grey grime. These snazzy cables are much more fun, it's just too bad they're going to be outdated so soon.

Available from Eastern Collective, these robust little guys come in four different colour schemes, all of which beat that hell out of what came with your iPhone. On top of that, at $US14, they aren't a bad deal, especially considering they're no doubt tougher than your average charging cable and way less likely to get tangled. Just don't pick one up if you have any interest in new iDevices. After all, this is the worst possible time to pick up new iPhone accessories since Apple is almost certainly moving away from the 30-pin port. Bummer, right? [Eastern Collective]


    "at $US14, they aren’t a bad deal"?

    I'd think a charging cable should cost about a dollar, a fancy one maybe upwards of five.

      last time i checked, $14 IS in fact upwards of $5.

    lol, charging cables like that are available on eBay for around 2 or 3 dollars

    I wouldn't mind them if they were micro-usb.
    I know it's not terribly hard to make rope/cord-covered cables, but I just don't have the time to faff about with it.

    And still cheaper than buying a regular USB to Dock connector from Apple!
