It seems that we’ve been posting a lot of cables lately. Charging your device is almost as essential as breathing, and a simple cable is the best solution to charging your device. Juices+ Cables, like the Eastern Collective Cables use a woven cable for a durable, tangle free design. The cables come in Gold, Silver, and Black. Where they differ in their design, the Juices+ use anodized aluminum connectors instead of plastic. For some phone users (iPhone 5, 5S, HTC One, Nokia models) this is very attractive, as it matches the material their phone is constructed with. These cables are licensed by Apple for use, so you will never have any compatibility issues. This project has already surpassed its Kickstarter goal by over 400%, but you can still get in the game and grab yourself one of these cables for just $18. Get one today!
