Hands-on w/ Volta 2.0 magnetic charge cable

The Volta 2.0 is a charge and sync cable that has a standard USB connector on one end and a magnetic connector on the other side that allows you to switch between USB-C, Lightning and micro-USB tips that Volta makes. The tips are designed so they can remain inserted into all of your devices– like your MacBook, iPhone, or iPad– allowing you to then use the open end of the Volta 2.0 cable to magnetically connect to any of them without having to manually switch connectors each time. Volta also makes the XL magnetic charge cable, a version with USB-C on the fixed end instead of standard USB like on the 2.0 model. 

The magnetic system, like Apple’s old MagSafe connectors, of course gives you the added benefit of safety by disconnecting and preventing any damage to your devices if you or someone else happens to trip over the cable.

The Volta cable features a rugged PBV braiding that is not only super durable but also remains completely flexible and does a great job at avoiding tangling that some of the thinner cables including Apple’s experience.

Volta’s interchangeable magnetic connector system makes it so you can use a single cable with all of your Lightning, USB-C and micro USB devices, but it also offers a $19 price point with two included tips that makes it a great buy compared to just about any cable. It comes with a lifetime warranty from the company.
