    Very thin and light power only cable

    posted by timandjulz on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is a very small, light weight retractable cable. The wire is strictly for power... it looks like a think two wire cable. Fully extended, the cable is 72.5mm (28.5") end to end (including the connectors).
    Cons:
    The benefit of a thin wire is size and weight. But on the other hand, it can make the cable feel insubstantial. In this case ...

    Good fit

    posted by timandjulz on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a simple case that is thick enough to protect. It has a simple design... nothing fancy. Buttons and plugs are still accessible without much effort. Stylus is easily removed. The facing edge is clear plastic and the back is frosted. The color of...
    Cons:
    Holes for the buttons, camera, speaker, etc. are not exactly centered. The holes are cut large enough so important parts don't...

    Works like a champ with Galaxy Note 2

    posted by timandjulz on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Cable does what it is supposed to do. Have used it to connect several thumb drives to a Samsung Galaxy Note II. No problems to report. I also connected a mouse which I find surprisingly useful.
    Cons:
    None that I can think of. Maybe a selection in colors would be nice.

    Pros:
    Functional and cheap

    Average build quality. I bought a set of four. One of them didn't match the length of the others which makes me wonder about ...

    posted by timandjulz on 05/13/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Solid build and it works.
    Cons:
    As another reviewer stated, it sticks out a bit. You need clearance behind your device. It would be nice if the adapter didn'...

    Check the connector carefully

    posted by timandjulz on 05/13/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Seems to be built fairly well. I have not been able to test functionally. See below the "bottom line" for more details on this. The body of the adapter is a rubber sleeve over a circuit board. The circuit board is pretty thick and the connector...
    Cons:
    The rubber sleeve was a disappointment. I had hoped for a hard plastic cover to protect the adapter in my backpack.

    Functional but kind of ugly

    posted by timandjulz on 05/13/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Large enough to store USB cables. The manufacturing seems decent and durable. I have been using a few of them in my backpack while traveling and they are surviving fine.
    Cons:
    Not sure who came up with the product title "Lovely Cable Turtle Smart Wrap Organizer". Because they are not attract...
