Kickstarter cable claims to double charging speeds from USB ports

This Kick-started cable claims to charge your devices at 2x or 3x normal speeds without any extra enhancements whatsoever

Meenova's smart & secure fast-charge USB cable and adapter has launched on Kickstarter with success, seeing over $12,000 raised with 22 days remaining out of their $10,000 goal set.




Your general computer USB port will charge at 0.5A, meaning devices will be slow to fill and often larger products like iPad's will either refuse to charge or never raise a percent in battery level. According to Andy & Rich, one useful example is the fact that their device will effectively enhance your charging speed from a general Macbook to iPhone from 0.46A to 1.1A without any drivers, software or optional extra's plugged in. The device can also be used for wall-USB chargers, seeing iPad's which previously refuse to charge accept the power being given.


The cable also blocks data transfer when wanted, meaning that this tangle-free braided cable will see your data stay safe and device continue virus free.


If you're interested in providing support, an $11 investment will secure you one cable for your own use.
