Got the InCharge XL as part of their kickstarter campaign, and while the project took a while to complete, the product is incredible. I absolutely love how small it packs down, while still being versatile enough to use on everything from my phone to my laptop. It's small enough to an easily-accessible part of my backpack, and useful enough that I always know I have a cable that can handle any situation that comes up.
I've had bad experiences with power and data cables that have interchangeable tips. They seem like such a good idea, but it's amazing how many ways the execution can go wrong: tiny magnetic tips that get jammed in my phone port and are too easily lost, huge clunky leashed tips that are constantly getting in the way, pouches of assorted esoteric tips that I never use and which are all safe in their pouch in a drawer at home when suddenly I need one of them in the field... and that's just in my limited experience. I know there are more variations on the theme because I scroll past them and delete their promo emails all the time. I guess Google has me pegged as a LAD (Lover of Adapters and Dongles).
So when Rolling Square came out with this InCharge cable set, I needed more than the usual convincing. (on the other hand, I did click on the shiny bait— Google's got me pegged for sure)
First, cable length. I love a short cable for connecting my phone to my laptop when I'm at a meeting or on the road. I had a tough little 5 cable that was just a bit too short, but I dropped it in the snow and lost it. (It was white.) The short InCharge cable is twice as long, but not too long for short cable purposes; because it's flat, it doesn't tangle, and the magnetic ends + silicone endcap = perfect for stowing and instant deployment when needed.
But this is supposed to be a review for the InCharge XL, the freaking long version of the same awesome cable. So: same awesome, but freaking long. Thank God it's flat or this thing would become a tangled mess every time I got it out. As it is, Rolling Square has done something with the cable material so that it remembers its folds (making it easy to fold it up into the perfect length to stuff into its silicone boot) but it also unfolds smoothly without trying too hard to hold its shape. The cable finish is smooth, minimal friction, so it pulls easily around furniture legs etc.
So, back to those interchangeable tips. Rolling Square figured it out. These just work. Each inner tip is USB-C. One outer tip is USB-A, the other is a Lightning tip (because I chose that version). The outer tips don't detach completely and wander off to find fame and fortune in the world. They don't have odd little tethers that make them bonk into things, flop onto the keyboard, obstruct other ports, or tangle with other nearby cables. They pull out slightly to expose the inner tip, then they SWING AWAY ON STRONG HINGES that can go either over the top or under the bottom of the cable. Either way, they behave themselves, don't cause trouble, won't wander off or snap off over time.
Power and data both seem to be as high/fast as advertised, but I haven't actually benchtested those. The XL charged my M1 laptop from 15% to 100% just as fast as the stock Apple cable did, fwiw, and I don't notice any lag in either cable, re data transfer. I'll defer to others' tests in those categories.
In sum: I love these InCharge cables. Both the short one and the XL (which could be called the XXXL).
Thank you, Rolling Square, for removing annoyance and adding quality and delight to my life. At least at this level of cord adaptability, durability, quality, and convenience.
I purchased from Kickstarter the cable XL in yellow and so far it has far exceeded my expectations.
The cable is very strong and not likely to break anytime soon. The magnet on the cable end and 4 ends for most devices is a stroke of genius.
The best part was the length of time it took to get to me prior to the Kickstarter ending and it was extraordinarily fast considering I have other Kickstarters that are on year 2.
I could not recommend this company/item more, if you have any hesitation don't as you won't regret it.
I got 2 of their inCharge XL cables and they are great. The best cables I have ever seen. I plan to buy other products they come up with.
InCharge XL cord is flat so it folds easy and compact. The cord is very strong. Love that 200cm and 300cm come with case. Careful not to drop electronic device while attached to pin because the pin can bend.
