Animated Glowing iPhone & iPad Charger is the Coolest USB Cable Ever

Jan 31, 2012 - 10 Comments

Glowing iPhone charger

It’s pretty hard to get excited about a USB cable, but the Dexim Visible Smart chargers are ridiculously cool in a super geeky way.

You need to watch the video below to see the effect, but basically the cable glows while it is charging or syncing to “visibly show the electrical current flowing through the cable.” The lights actually change speed based on the battery capacity of the iPhone, iPod, or iPad, with the animated lights moving quicker the lower the battery charge is, and finally stopping motion once the battery is charged.

You can buy the glowing Dexim charger on Amazon for about $30.

Coolest USB cable ever? Yea, I think so. Heads up to Gizmodo for the find.

    Just looked at the picture again looks like a European AC outlet.

    I’m more interested in the ac wall outlet with interrupters and usb charging ports shown on your picture. I’m looking for that. What brand is it and where did you purchase it?

    Are the interrupters for the USB or the AC outlet or both?

    I’m wondering if my cat would leave it alone…?

    Apple should add some visual cue to their iOS devices’ chargers. This is too flashy, but something like the LED light on the magsafe adapter would be nice.
