Snakable

Armored Charging Cable

Lasting Charging

Wes Goulbourne got the inspiration for Snakable—a durable USB cord that won’t fray or break—from, believe it or not, plastic toy snakes.

Wes was frustrated with repeatedly replacing cables. After many designs that weren’t quite right, he looked to nature for a solution. He thought of a snake’s movements, and then remembered a jointed, plastic toy snake he had as a child. Inspiration struck.

The ball joints at either end of
each Snakable cable not only allow a new degree of flexibility, they also protect the cable within. The spheres can pop in and out to maintain an angle, and provide relief where cables see the most strain—at the connector. For Apple users, Snakable's lightning cables are MFi (approved by Apple). For Android users, they also make a micro-USB cable.

Wherever you charge your devices, your frayed days are over.

    Could you design cables that use the little ball designs so that you can then create your own lengths? in other words sell 3 different parts - the USB end, the Apple end and the middle (or in snake terms the head, tail and body). It seems that there should be a way to finally solve the cable issue using your idea!

    What a great idea! I see how it works for phones. Does it also work on a laptop? I have a Samsung Ultrabook that charges with a long connector plug that goes into a hole in my computer (OK that's not so tech-y but hope you understand it anyway). It doesn't charge via a USB or Micro port like my Kindle and iPhone.

  • Wes

    Hi Sandy, I get what you mean :-) Laptops tend to use a different power cord than other smaller mobile devices. As of right now, Snakable is only available in Apple Lightning, and Micro USB configurations. So unfortunately Snakable is not compatible for your laptop application. But it can still charge your phones and tablets :-)

    If you were to hold the wire just before the snakeable portion and then twist the plug end, will it spin freely no matter how many times you complete a 360° turn. Or would you eventually twist the connector to the point that the wire gets damaged.

  • Wes
    Wes – Special Guest
    11/18/2015 10:58 AM

    Hi Mac, if you held the wire and twisted by the connector, eventually you would damage the wires, but you would likely tired your fingers first (I just tried it).

    Wes - kudos to you for addressing this irritation that easily gets on our nerves. May I suggest a DIY especially on the rolling balls part - that will allow me to convert pretty much any cable into a Snakable. Putting this out there - in case you did not have it on your radar.

  • Eric
    Eric
    11/18/2015 11:01 AM

    @Sathya I'd also vote for more lengths in the future -- some folks need 6-ft / 2-meter cables, while I'd like one that's very short for travel use (around 6-18"). Also, any way to get this in blue?

    Hi Sathya, thanks for your kind words. I have been thinking of that for a while now, the issue is the vast amount of cable diameters and connector shapes. Sure we could make something and call it universal, but it would only look and work great on some products, and fail on others. I do have some ideas though........

    @Mike

    The only way I can safely charge my phone, laptop or MacBook is to put them in the bathroom with the door closed. Otherwise, my little girl cat has chewed cords from all, twice for my laptop @ $80 per cord! Needless to say, it was expensive. She also chews lamp cords, which I have to unplug. I have tried everything on them, but to no avail. Are these snakables made of plastic?

    11/18/2015 11:12 AM

    Hi Sharon, Snakable should work in your vehicle as is, as long as it is connected to a properly rated USB port for the device you are plugging in. A direct auto cable would be awesome too, I will look into that.

  • steven

    like the idea Wes, but $29.95? I can buy conventional replacement cables at $4.00 each, and yes they might last a year or two before they fray. Maybe coming down on the price point might help.

  • Wes
    Wes – Special Guest
    11/18/2015 11:17 AM

    Hi Steven, I appreciate your honesty. I think it really comes down to the person. I used to buy $5-$10 cables for my phone, but I used them so much that they frayed every few months. Causing me to buy more cables each time, all that time and money adds up. Plus they didn't look half as cool.

    What a brilliant idea! Thank you so much for coming up with this. Do you have any plans for one that will replace a Macbook power charger? I'm so tired of the tape I have wrapped around the end that plugs into my computer, attempting to keep it together. I would love to have this instead. Especially in gorgeous colors vs. boring gray!

  • Wes

    11/18/2015 11:20 AM

    My problem isn't the cord but the connector. My wife likes to use her tablet plugged in to the charger, and one jerk, and the connector is toast. I have bought her half a dozen over the past year. Please comment on how your product will improve my cord turn-over rate.

  • Wes
    Wes – Special Guest
    11/18/2015 11:24 AM

    Hi Andy, unfortunately there isn't too much that can be done for what your explaining. When the cable is plugged into the device is creates a point of leverage. Yanking on the cable takes advantage of that leverage and can damage the cable and/or the port on the device.

    What Snakable can do, is give you an extra foot of useable length and bend where you need it to go. I hope I answered your question.

    This is perfect! I am vision impaired, not blind, but I have difficulty in low light, especially with a bunch of cords that all look alike! I cannot tell you how long it takes me to plug in all my gadgets at night. I tried using nail polish to distinguish the cords, but that wears off, and my husband had a cow once when the polish didn't dry and the cord spread the polish all over the carpet!

    Forgive my non-tech language. My question is, are they "strong" enough for all gadgets? Sometimes when I plug my Samsung Galaxy 4 into the wrong cord I get a message, "...will charge faster with proper cord" or something like that. Who can keep up with which cord came with which gadget?

    Hi Sandy, yes we are looking into expanding different lengths. Stay tuned!

    LOVE the idea, but doesn't this just move the "stress point" to a different location on the cord? Above the ball joints, Snakable looks exactly like the cord that I'm using now. The place where it always frays is right where the cord goes into that little "sleeve" thing. (sorry for the non-tech term) Why would your cord not also do that?

    Hi Catherine, fantastic question! The sleeve you are talking about is a standard "strain relief boot" this is typically placed right below the connector to protect from strain. However as we have all seen, it doesn't do enough on its own. Snakable's strain relief system, incorporates the SR boot as a "last line of defense". But if you break your cord there, you must be really cranking hard, in unbelievable angles to make that happen. In other words Snakable would have to bend down over itself continuously at that area to actually break. Typically that doesn't happen, in our tests or in our customers experiences thus far.

    I hope I answered your question. :-)

    @Wes Thanks. I'm not yanking it hard, LOL, but what damages it is that I lay on my bed and use my iPad propped on my stomach while it is plugged in charging. Since the cord plugs in at the bottom...

    I did see, meanwhile, that you have a three-year warranty. Would this type of damage be covered? And, are there any charges for warranty replacement?

    @Catherine (oops).... You are referring to the connector breaking while proping the device on the bottom of the connector. Is that right?

    i really like the idea, but the price point is just to high to try another cable...maybe if you made it more like the old "monster" plug system with exchangeable tips I could see trying it, but I do appreciate the idea as the area where the swivels are certainly do wear after time.

    This looks pretty cool! I have a LifeProof case that cannot take my recently purchased aftermarket charger because it's too wide (iPhone 6). Is your charger exactly the same dimensions as Apple's charger? My original Apple charger frayed & broke. Thank you!

    Hi Mj, I use my Snakable with an iPhone 6 Plus / LifeProof nuud case, and they fit together perfectly! Our connectors are very slim, there is a small difference of 1-2 mm from the Apple original.

    Hi, I don't think I've read this yet, but are you going to come out with more colors......I would like a different color for each person/gadget use. And my Granddaughter would want her "favorite" color, like purple or pink.

    Hi Karen, great question! I get that a lot, everyone has a favorite color that they want to accessorize with, mine is orange! Yes, I plan on coming out with more colors; pink, blue, and purple are the most asked for so those are likely to be next. When though, I couldn't exactly say. Stay tuned! ????

    30 dollars for a 4 foot charging cord?????!!! outrageous, I understand its "innovative" with that design and all but I'm not shelling out that much for this

    Hi Nick, thanks for your comment. The majority of branded cables are fairly close to Snakable's pricing, some even exceed $29.99 for nothing more than a name and maybe a color. On top of that, the likely hood of that cable lasting more than a few months is slim. With Snakable you are getting a quality, innovative product that won't quit on you after a few months.

    It looks like a great solution for our six phones (have 4 kids) with somebody always having a broken cable. I just wish you also made them for iPad 2 ... We break a lot of those cables also from same problem Catherine mentioned...because I need to use it while it's charging and plug is at the bottom.

    Hi Linda, thanks for the kind words! You could always try the solution the cat crew came up with above and use some sort of fish air hose to protect the cord.
