Biodegradable USB Cables

Doing anything to make your product stand out is the only way to get your company ahead.  Over the past 3 years, going green has been a very popular theme with many companies.  Qmadix is another company you can add to the list.  Qmadix introduces a biodegradable USB cable.


The biodegradable USB cable works like any typical USB cable.  It is USB-IF certified to guarantee performance speed.  It comes in Type A and Type B connector styles.  Qmadix also includes HDMI and 30 pin Apple connectors.

The big difference is the coating put on the cable.  The USB biodegradable cable uses a plant-based by-product to protect the internal copper.  The cable will remain stable during use in the home or office, but once put into a landfill, the degrading begins.

We suspect is has to do with moisture levels, but not 100% sure.  The plant-based coating will biodegrade the cable in about

“Cord-On-Board” iPhone Case

These iPhones run out of juice so quickly.  I’m not saying it’s a battery issue, I’m saying the devices are so adictive I use them all day long and drain the battery.  From getting directions, to checking status updates, to email, facetime and photo shots, it’s in constent use.

I’ve definitely spent extra money getting Apple 30 pin cables for charging at both home and work.  Caseinity has solved the consumer problem of over spending with the cord-on-board product.  The product is simple as you can see from this image.

The product is a case with the USB to 30-pin connector attached to the underside of the case.  Now we don’t see a width dimension of the picture, but it must be at least 7mm thick to handle the USB connector.

What I like most about this product is the

Circular Sealed USB Cables

Press Release:

NUREMBERG, Germany – TE Connectivity (TE) has expanded its portfolio of industrial USB 2.0 connectors to include latching and circular sealed USB connectors.

The latching version adds retention force to USB connections and features a latching plug and receptacle with standard IP 20 protection. This USB connector adds 40 Newtons of locking strength with an integrated, positive latching mechanism and offers 1,500 mating and unmating cycles. The latching mechanism helps to avoid downtime caused by accidental unplugging and an audible and tactile feedback confirms to the user that the connector is fully engaged. Typical applications are in the mobile segment, such as hand-held devices with a controller-to-peripheral interconnection.

The latching USB connector’s high-speed standard allows the transmission of up to 480 Mb/s data plus up to 5 volts/500 milliamps over one cable. Cable assemblies of 1 to 5 meters in length make it easy to use the latching feature without having to assemble cables. Customers simply need to design-in the latching receptacle to the board side of their product. If more than one USB port is required, a double-row latching receptacle can be used. Versions are available in standard Type A configurations.

Dream Cable: iPhone, microUSB And miniUSB All In One

I’m sure we all have our own definition of an ideal cable, meaning a cable which connects to more then one device. For me, the new 3-in-1 cable from USB Fever is it.

The 3-in-1 cable works with any iPhone or iPad type product, any device using a microUSB connector or any device which uses miniUSB connector.

What is great about this cable is that three different connectors are seamlessly integrated with the end part of the cable. You do not see three wires splitting off for different connectors. All in-line, tight and organized. Here take a look:

In addition the iPhone 3-in-1 cable is tethered to a retractable assembly to pull the wires in when not in use.

For me, all of the above is ideal because I have one station at home which charges my kids DS, my iPhone and my Nikon point-n-shoot camera. Now I can power all three with only one cable.

USB Dongle Lockbox from Lucas

Press Release

Lucas Distribution, LLC a worldwide distributor of office equipment and security hardware, announces Dongle Lockbox to secure USB dongle keys.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 09, 2011

Lucas Distribution, LLC, an Atlanta-based worldwide distributor of office products and equipment, recently launched the Dongle Lockbox to keep USB dongle keys secure.

“Dongle keys are used by software developers to protect their software from piracy. Today, virtually all dongle keys are USB type and must be plugged into an available USB port on your PC or Laptop computer to run the software program,” said Sales and Marketing Manager Dave Lucas. “If you misplace your dongle key or if it is stolen, your software is now unusable. At the very least you will have to purchase a new dongle key and worst case you will have to purchase the software again.”

In addition to the cost of replacing software, areas of business that need this software cannot function until the replacement package is received and reinstalled on the computer.

Now there is a solution available to alleviate concerns and mitigate risks – the USB Dongle Lockbox.

The Dongle Lockbox Kit consists of a secure ABS plastic enclosure, 6 foot USB Extender, combination lock with steel locking cable, and Flex Foot & Cable Nut to use as an anchor point.

Dongle Lockboxes are available in 2 styles:

  • Single lockbox – secures 1 dongle key
  • Double lockbox – secures 2 dongle keys

The combination lock is user-changeable and as an added free service, Lucas Distribution will maintain a record of new combinations when USB Dongle Lockboxes are registered with them. If a combination is misplaced or forgotten, Lucas Distribution will provide the registered combination after verifying proper identity.
