For $59.99 (plus shipping) you can get yourself a JUMP cable which is a neat little package that does a few things.

The cable wraps around the square holder from which it doesn’t come away – when unraveled, the cable comes out each side of the holder.  It’s quite a wire like cable so not as “floppy” as you might be used to which makes wrapping it up a breeze.

However, its whats inside that little square holder that makes the difference here.  A battery.

Because the whole package is small and light it can easily be in your pocket all day.  Using the cable itself to connect a phone to your PC or power point will charge both the phone and the JUMP cable battery – win win.

SAM_9882It’s a slick little package, a bit on the pricey side, but with Native Union products in Officeworks locally, perhaps we will see the JUMP Cable in stores in Australia soon.
