At some point in your tech-toting life, you’ve had the moment. That instant when you swung out your arm without thinking or unknowingly walked past a charging device…and accidentally yanked that previously invisible connecting cable. Pulled by the force, that laptop, phone, tablet or another tethered device went tumbling.
Sometimes, you’re lucky and your device landed on carpet or otherwise survives. But other times, not so much. The Plugies MagTech Cable ($11.99, 70 percent off) is the answer to that doomsday scenario.
The Plugies MagTech is a 6-foot, 6-inch nylon braided cable equipped with an anodized aluminum head tip that connects to any of your USB-C compatible devices for charging or data transfer. In addition to the extra protection of that nylon braiding, this latest MagTech is also reinforced with thicker wiring, so it’s designed to survive where cheaper, flimsier cables start to bend, fray, split and die.
But the real allure of the Plugies MagTech is that the cable heads are magnetically connected. The snap and charge plug uses double-sided neodymium magnets to connect easily to the cable as well as your device. However, those magnetic connectors also can be easily pulled apart, so if you unwittingly snag a charging device cable, the magnetic tip can automatically detach, saving your device from being yanked off a table or counter and plunging to the floor.
This setup also makes it convenient to connect devices in occasionally hard to reach places. Just leave the cable tip connected to your device, then when you’re ready to link up, just bring the cable anywhere close and it snaps into place effortlessly.
While the breakaway tips help protect your devices, they don’t impede on your connectivity one bit. Plugies MagTech cables support fast charging and high data transmission rates.
The Plugies MagTech is a cable made to last and built to protect and deliver, which is about as much as you can ask from your connectors. Regularly priced at $39, you can get one now for 70 percent off the regular price, down to just $11.99.
