Painstakingly Compact Cords

Never Get Caught Without a Cable Again with the AluCable Mini

— February 11, 2014 — Tech
Computer bags are cramped enough as is with laptops and cables taking up enough space as is, which is something the AluCable Mini looks to combat against by boasting an overtly utilitarian design aesthetic. Crafted with premium aluminum from Just Mobile, the AluCable Mini puts an emphasis on what it doesn't offer: additional clutter.

The AluCable Mini is designed with tight desktop space and backup batteries in mind as it only features a mere 10cm of length to ensure things are kept neat. Regarding backup battery usage, the AluCable Mini can be quickly connected and stored in a bag without the need for unnecessary length. Where extra long third-party cords can severely decrease charging abilities, the AluCable Mini won't degrade power transference. Perfect for on-the-go digital lifestyles, the AluCable Mini is great for being small enough to fit in a pocket, but mighty enough to get the job done fast and efficiently.
