Patriot FUEL iON Magnetic Charging Cable Review

What's Hot


Sturdy: The cable will most likely outlast your phone.




Easy to use: It can charge your phone at any angle as long as the connection is kept, no more annoying USB cable sticking out of the bottom of your phone.


Strong connection: The magnet has a very solid connection to the case - or any other metal object you wish.


Helps prolong phone life: Thanks to your no longer having to plug and unplug a small cable into the flimsy micro-USB socket three times a day, your phone will thank you dearly by lasting longer.


What's Not


Only one color: It's a small issue sure, but it would be great to see a navy blue or black cable to suit the case color.




The cost: If $5-$10 could be taken off the retail price we would be looking at a real winner here, it's hard to justify a $25+ cable no matter how cool it is.



Final Thoughts


If you've made the plunge and gotten the magnetic charging case, the benefits for this charging cable are just too high. The cable will last longer and help prolong your phone life - it's most likely that you'll hold onto this cable for a longer period than you'll hold onto your current phone model. Simple, just buy the next magnetic charging case for your next device and continue enjoying this easy charging method.




The Patriot Fuel iON magnetic cable makes for easy charging and removes the possibility of breaking your extremely small and flimsy micro-USB phone port which (from personal experience) can be bent, become dirty, and break in other ways to disrupt your charging experience.
