Innergie Magic Cable Trio Review

In the technological age that we live in I have succumbed to having numerous gadgets and electronics as a part of my daily life.  I always have my mobile phone and digital camera to hand as I love to be able to capture moments of little man’s life with either device.  I take numerous photos every week and like to upload them to my laptop to store them as well as sharing them on here and on facebook to my friends and family.  It can get a bit annoying having different cables for attaching my phone and digital camera as well as other technological devices such as my MP3 player; so when I was offered the chance to test out an innovative cable that allows you to connect multiples devices I thought this might be the solution to having numerous cables for all the difference devices we use.

Innergie make products to “power your life” and one of their products is the Magic Cable Trio.  This 3-in-1 USB cable is a multi-functioning cable that allows you to charge and sync numerous portable devices.  The magic cable enables people to connect and charge devices across 3 connection interfaces with just 1 cable.

The Magic Cable Trio has an innovative multi-tip design that works with a wide range of devices  –

*  A Mini USB that is compatible with HTC, GPS units, MP3 players, digital cameras and more
*  A Micro USB that is compatible with Blackberry, eBooks, Bluetooth headsets and more
*  A connector for Apple products including iPad, iPhone, iPod

The cable is small and lightweight, measuring 20cm long and weighing only 15g, it is well made and thicker than average cables.  It is easy to use the Magic Cable Trio to sync and charge devices; you simply connect your device to the Mini USB, the Micro USB or Apple connector and attach the normal USB connector at the other end of the cable to your laptop or computer.  The connector tips have been made using an innovative design where in this single cable they are linked together and can be attached or detached depending on which connector is needed to work; for example if you want to use the Micro USB connector you push the Mini USB connector into the Micro USB connector which you attach to the device you want to charge and sync.


I really like the Magic Cable Trio and think it is a novel, ingenious product.  It is great that you have the ability to charge and sync a variety of devices in a single cable.  I like that it worked with my HTC Desire C phone and my digital camera as they are the main devices that I connect to my laptop and it’s good to know that it would charge and sync our GPS unit when needed and if I could afford to replace my broken iPod that it would work with a new iPod too.  Unfortunately it is not compatible for Lee’s mobile phone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace but this isn’t that big a deal for us as I never need to sync his phone and he is happy to do so with the cable that came with his phone when he needs to sync it with the laptop.  Thankfully there is a compatibility checker tool on the Innergie website that you can use to check to see if your device is compatible with various Innergie products.

The Innergie Magic Cable Trio can be bought on their website for 19.99 which I think is good value for money for a multi-functioning accessory that works with a variety of different devices.  Also on their website you can find out more and purchase the other range of products Innergie make for helping you “power your life”.  You can keep up to date with Innergie’s range of innovative products by following them on twitter @Innergie and joining them on the Innergie Facebook page.
