Tudia Klip helps preserve Apple charger cables


NAME: Tudia Klip

WHAT IT DOES: The Klip reduces strain on original Apple Lightning or 30-pin charging cables.

COST: $5 for a set of two. Multiple sets can be purchased at a reduced rate; free shipping to the United States and Canada.

WHAT’S HOT: It’s no secret that a lot of people are unhappy with Apple’s Lightning and 30-pin charging cables. Just go to their website and look at the reviews, which average 1.5 stars out of five. Many users complain that the cables balloon and break at the ends where they connect to the plugs and lose connectivity after a few months. Sure, you can buy a no-name replacement cord for less than the $19 Apple charges; some work fine, but others have connectivity issues from the get-go. That’s why we were so excited about the Tudia Klip. This easy-to-use and inexpensive device attaches to the ends of the charger cable and protects it from separating from the plug by reducing strain by 80 percent, the company says. The Klip has two pieces: Slip the silicone base (available in five colors) around the cord where it meets the plug, then place the polycarbonate clip over it to lock it in place. Now your cable is protected from bending where it meets the plug. Right now, you can only purchase Tudia Klip as a perk on its crowdfunding site, but the manufacturer guarantees that all perks will ship whether or not the $25,000 goal is met.

WHAT’S NOT: You must wait for an email from Tudia to make your color choice.
