For years, iPhones and Android phones have needed different cables to charge — Apple requires the Lightning cable and you’ll need a micro USB cable for an Android device. But now there’s a single cable that connects to both.
The LMcable, which is picking up significant traction on Kickstarter, works in Lightning and micro USB ports by having a reversible male end with two differently designed sides.
One side connects with the Lightning port’s pins, while the opposite side connects with the micro USB port’s pins. At the other end of the cable is a standard USB male connector.
