Charging and syncing your iPhone/iPod is a doddle, isn’t it? Simply plug in that USB cable and…er, now where did we put it? Um…oh fiddlesticks, we left it at home. Thankfully one of our clever product scouts has got a Flip Sync iPhone Cable dangling from his keyring. Result!
Charge it and sync
Not the most exciting iPhone accessory but surely the handiest, this nifty little plastic fob flips open to reveal a short cable with an iPod connector on one end and a USB 2.0 plug on the other. Simply pop it in your pocket and you can charge and sync your beloved gizmo wherever you may roam.
Just think, with a Flip Sync on your keyring you can pilfer tracks from laptop-toting friends (woohoo, Joe McElderry) and whoosh in a bit of power without having to walk around with a tangled lead in your pocket. Waddya sync of them apples!

This is a very clever gadget thus the highly inflated price for what is essentially a USB. I wouldn't mind the price too much if the darn cable was a bit longer but this is too short. However it works fantastic when you need a charge! Md, Bronx - 26th November 2010
Would the cable work on the new iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3rd Gen??? Kripesh, London - 14th November 2010
Firebox says: Hi Kripesh, it sure will. The FlipSync Cable is compatible with both.
They are correct - life is FAR too short to remember where you've left your sync cable. I've bought a spare cable for work, and one to keep in the car, but I am STILL always trying to find it.
This little device is amazing, it is a lot smaller than you might think, smaller than my car fob and is approx 3. 5 x 2. 5 cm, and less than 1cm wide.
The only thing you need to be aware of - is due it's very small size, the cable extends as far as you can see in the picture - which is enough for use with a laptop USB port, but try plugging into the back of your desktop PC and you will need to find something to keep it (very) close to the port.
In short - if you have an iPhone, you need one of these. Kevin, Swindon, UK - 8th June 2010
