MicFlip 2.0, the best USB cable I’ve ever had

[Tweet : nvALT]

A while back, WinnerGear sent me a reversible micro USB cable called the Micflip. It was the result of a Kickstarter project, and it was great. The micro USB end of the cable could be inserted into a port in either direction, a la Lightning adapters. I talked about it with Ed Zitron on Systematic 162, and we both agreed this should always have existed.

I just got the 2.0 version in the mail yesterday. In addition to gold plating, rubber protection on the plugs, a nylon braided cable, and the reversible Micro USB plug, the USB Type-A (the port on your computer or hub) at the other end is now reversible as well. This is amazing. This should absolutely always have existed.

The cable works for data and charging, and I can vouch that you can plug it into a hub with your eyes closed, first try. There’s not much else to say. This is awesome. You can pick one up for about $20. If you own any peripherals with micro USB adapters (and who doesn’t?), this is a no-brainer.
