PlusUs, the Australian company behind LifeLink, the world’s thinnest, most compact smartphone cable, has announced they are now taking pre-orders for a more premium USB charge cable called the LifeStar.
The tangle-free cables are covered by a lifetime warranty and are available in braided and stitched look in denim and PU leather (a man-made leather), with double stitching holding the material in place around the cable. The cables are finished with matching coloured PVC into an aluminum connectors.
There’s two sizes available – 1 metre or 25 centimetre – which support up to 2.4amp charging with microUSB or Apple MFi certified Lightning adapter tips in 7 styles: Vintage Tan, Denim Blues, Cross Turquoise, Snake Bite, Ruby Sunset, Moonlight Silver and Fuzzy Mocha.
Plans for making the cables available at retail are currently underway, but at this stage, LifeStar cables are only available to pre-order from the PlusUs website. Pricing is variable depending on the material, adapter and length, with some cables already sold-out. PlusUs expects orders to begin shipping in October.
The cables look great – that Vintage Tan is going to have a permanent home on my desk – but they appear to be selling out insanely fast, so head over to the PlusUs website now and get your order in.
