While most USB-charged Apple products like the iPhone and iPad come with a USB charging cable in the box, there is a thriving third-party market for these easily lost accessories. Dexim's $20 Visible Green USB-Dock Connector cables have a distinctive twist: they use electroluminescence to "visibly show the electrical current flowing through the cable". Completing the illusion is the fact that there are multiple speeds that the current can "flow", adjusting with the battery life of the device it's charging.


While perhaps not the most practical iPhone charger, particularly for bedside nighttime charging, the Visible Green cable is certainly the coolest.

Dexim's Visible Green cables are available via a number of retailers, including Amazon and others.

As a calm, mature, adult, silly things like that little cable make me glad that I am a calm, mature adult. No calm, mature adult would ever have anything to do with a silly little cable like that.

Ne siree, not us mature adults.

Nope, not us adults.

(Now, how fast can this calm, mature adult click on my Amazon bookmark! :o :p)


Edit: Went to Amazon and read the reviews. According to one reviewer the cable is only 2 feet long. (The one that comes with your iPhone is 3' 4") No good for my purposes. And anyway, we mature adults don't use stuff like that. DAMN!

To me, the flow is backwards, flowing from the device to the wall.
