Our suppliers have now all returned form the Chinese New Year holiday so we have been talking to them on a daily basis to try and resolve the Micro USB supply problem. We have some good samples that have passed our testing and we are now confirming the exact details, function and looks. The hard part is getting all the parts brought together correctly into 1 cable, without the need for new moulds to be cut. Adding new moulds into the equation would add at least 4 weeks to the production time so we are trying to use current moulds where possible and have them tweaked to meet our design.
The current design we are working on can be seen in the picture below. Don't worry it will still be a braided cable and all visible plastic will be clear. This design has nice strong plugs with a lovely rounded shape. Overall it looks like it is going to be a great cable.
We are sorry that it is taking so long but we really want to get this cable right and not just another Micro USB cable.
After the recent announcement by Apple that they are recalling all their Type C to Type C cables for their the new 12" Macbook we have had a number of requests for a replacement high quality and super tough cable.
We have been looking into this and it looks like we can also add in our LED charging light as well as the magnetic cable tidy. So hopefully coming soon there will be an all singing and dancing replacement power and data cable for the 12" Macbook. Best of all with our LED charging light you will be able to see if your Macbook is actually charging. This was a function Apple removed from the latest charging cables and which many many people are missing.
