The StarTech 3' Right Angle Cable is designed for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. It lets you both recharge the battery of your device as well as sync the data when connected to your desktop or laptop computer. It features a right-angled Apple dock connector on one end and a USB connector on the other, making it compatible with many computers and adapters for wall and car chargers. The right angle positions the cable in such a way that it allows you to easily access your iOS-enabled mobile digital device in both portrait and landscape mode, even while charging. Aluminum-mylar foil with braided shielding protects the interior of this USB cable for iPhone and helps prevent signal interference. The high-quality construction of the connectors lets them stand up under repeated connections and disconnections.
