We don't ask for much out of our charging cables: Juice up our phone, do it fast and don't break. It's supposed to be simple, but keeping your phone plugged in for the night - as most of us do - can actually degrade the life of your battery by overheating it.
That's why one of the best investments you can make for your phone is a smart cable like those being put out by Charby Sense.
Not only are these things durable, but they pack a lot of innovations that will save you money in the long run. The short term bells and whistles include a double-speed booster you can use when your phone is plugged into a laptop, plus a handy LED that displays the relative charging speed for whatever power source you're using. The high-speed copper wires are laced with Kevlar fiber too, ensuring the cables won't easily fray or break.
But best of all is the auto shutoff feature that detects when your battery is at capacity and cuts power accordingly. It'll save you a little on energy, and a lot of new batteries or devices down the road.
Take your pick of Charby Sense cables in a variety of inputs, all sale priced at $28 - a full 28% off. You can pick it up in either lightning, micro-USB, or USB-C.
