Cord Control

Keeping our devices charged has become a virtual nightmare. One here, one there, wrong size, cord not long enough…it’s maddening. Tech Candy is here to help with their 3-in-1 Charging Cable and Car/Wall Power Adapter.

Designed by April Mraz and Cherie Stine, founders of Tech Candy accessories, the cable can be used with all iPhones, iPads, iPods, Kindles, Nooks, Samsung, and other Android Smartphones. At 6 feet long, it's
double the length of standard cords providing maximum reach and ease of use. It can charge 3 ways with 30-pin, 8-pin, and Micro-USB connections. Made with colorful woven fabrics, the Get Cord-inated cable provides streamlined cord control for devices at home or work.

The Car/Wall Power Adapter works both in your car AC/DC outlet and works in wall outlets, too. It's ideal for travel because it folds into its own case to keep the charging connections clean, dust-free and easy to carry.

    Great for families, gatherings, travel and office use, the Get Cord-inated Woven USB Cable has a 3-in-1 tip that’s just right for the gadget at hand. This USB cable can be used with ALL iPhones, iPads, iPods, Kindles, Nooks, Samsung smartphones & more! Cord allows both charging (from device to wall or travel charger) and data connection (syncing from device to computer). Highly functional and pretty too, it is double long at 6 ft. No need to buy extenders to reach the outlet near your bed again! Tech Specs: 6 ft long RoHS certified USB cable with 30-pin, 8-pin, and Micro-USB connections.

    Will it charge multiple devices simultaneously? For example, can I charge my iPhone on the 30-pin and charge my speaker on the Micro-USB at the same time?

    Also, how well does the cord hold up? I purchased an (admittedly cheap) extended 30-pin cord before, but the connection between the cord and the head became frayed after about 3 months of use. Please advise.

    Thanks, Laura

    Thanks for your question. There really isn't room to get both devices on the plug at the same time. This cord charges up quickly though, so it's easy to stage them one after the other.

    Also, we chose this woven product for the cord for the simple reason that it is more durable than the standard plastic cords. I think you'll be pleased with the strength of the cord. We have had no issues with fraying on our personal cords and they get ALOT of use! :)

    Yes, I have the same question as Laura. Can you charge 2 devices at the same time? That would be a HUGE bonus.

    Definitely one of those "why didn't I think of that!" kind of gadgets. :-)

    Please provide further explanation on the "device to wall" description - I only see a USB end opposite the tri-plug end; am I incorrect in understanding that this can charge things directly to a wall outlet? Thank you!

    You are right! The opposite end IS a USB - that you could plug into a wall charger (not directly into the wall) or a computer or a car charger.

    @Cherie Ah, yes, I think my husband has a do-dad that plugs into the wall then the USB attaches to that. Now it makes sense. [He's the tech guy here; me, not so much . . . obviously :-) ] Thank you!

    Are the 30-pin and 8-pin plugs Apple-certified?

    Thanks, Bryan

    @Bryan ,

    The cord does work with iOS7 - although the lightning pin is not Apple-certified.

    Looks like a wonderful product. Will the lighting connector work with the phone in the case?

    I found this a problem with other chargers. Thanks!

    This question kind of depends on your case. The lightning connector works on a phone with a Tech Candy Case. :)

    @Cherie How about the Apple leather case for the iPhone 5S. Will that work with the charger? Thanks!

    You should have the space to fit it into the connector with the case on. That case isn't really too thick. I don't have one here to say I guarantee it - but I believe you'll be fine.

    @Cherie it does not work on an iPhone 5 with an otterbox case. The 30 pin connector gets in the way and prevents the lightning connector to fit in the iPhone.

    I would recommend modifying the design so that the 30 pin side is slightly smaller or the lightning adapter portion protrudes further out. Almost all users I know used otterbox to protect their smart phones, so this may be an opportunity to improve the design.

    Is this Apple certified?

    @Becky ,

    This 30-pin and 8-pin connectors do operate with iOS7 but it is not Apple-certified.

  • Guest

    can it charge 2 or more devices at the same time?

    @Guest ,

    Hi. No, unfortunately, it will only charge one device at a time.

    @Cherie Will it act as a Nabi "Tween" charge cord?

  • Mike
    1/14/2014 3:58 PM

    It charges and transfer data to iPhone 5, will it also get audio?

    No audio on this cord, Mike. Sorry. :(

    Can it be used as a Nabi "Tween" charging cable?

    The Nabi 2 does have a micro usb port but it is only for the data transfer - apparently you can only use the black power adapter that comes with the Nabi 2 to charge it. Sorry, Howard.

    I have a new iPhone 5S and recently purchased a lightning cable which looks like it should work but doesn't as I guess it's not "Apple certified". I would love this 3-in-1 cord but I need to know for sure that it will work with my iPhone.

  • Dawn

    Why is it important for some that this be apple certified? What does apple certified mean?

  • Waqar
    1/15/2014 3:02 AM


    If its not apple certified, all Apple devices on IOS7 will not charge. Apple have on the last IOS7 update made sure that only Certified Cables will Ccharge & Sync. If your not certified, it wont Charge, let alone Sync. This prevents all other manufacturers from bringing in cheap Apple cables. Hence, the cable needs to be 'certified'. It will however work if people are still on IOS6 for example.

    Hi Dawn and Waqar,

    These are important questions and we want to be sure you get the correct answers. Cherie should be along shortly and will clarify.

    Our cord DOES work with iOS7. The chip in the connector for iPhone 5 has been updated to accomodate the Apple changes. There are many cables out there that are less expensive and Betty-Ann is correct that they do not work on the new iPhone 5S. Rest assured I use our cord every day with my 5S and my daughter's new iPad. :)
