REVIEWED: Logiix Sync & Charge JOLT Shortie

This sturdy 30cm Apple Lightning cable cuts down on clutter in your carry-on

It’s tempting to stuff an extra cable or two in your backpack as your rush out the door to catch a plane, but there’s really no need. Logiix’s latest space-saver –this time for Apple fans – helps you streamline your trip tech.

Hitting thirty

At just 30cm the Logiix Sync & Charge JOLT Shortie is about enough to stretch from most USB wall plugs to a phone without it having to dangle (always a risk with super-short cables). We also found it small enough to leave attached to a portable charger for a phone (who doesn’t travel with one of those) without it causing havoc in our carry-on.


The cable itself is very slim, and therefore easy to stow in a shirt pocket during a long flight or a long day at a conference, while the USB connector itself is also slimmer than normal. We had no problems with compatibility, managing to both charge-up an iPhone 5S and sync between it and a MacBook. Thoroughly recommended.
