MicFlip — The Only Charging Cord You’ll Ever Need
You know those moments when an invention comes out and you think, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” That is what the MicFlip is. It’s an invention for people with Android phones that saves them time and money. If you have an iPhone, well, every time you buy one and have to get a new charger, you should realize the mistake you’ve made by buying a phone with technology that is 3 years old, but that’s another story.
If you own an Android phone, you’ll notice that you go to plug-in your charger, but it have to turn it the other way around since you tried plugging it in the wrong way. Annoying, right? Well, MicFlip invented a genius charger that makes it so that never happens. The MicFlip plugs into your phone both ways.
Do you see how maddeningly genius that is? How many times have you went to plug-in your smartphone and it was the wrong way? So many! What’s worse is that when you keep plugging it in the wrong way, it could damage the phone and the charger. Knowing someone who works at a cellular carrier and can get me free chargers is a plus, but imagine having to go in there and buying new ones because they break.
Not only do the phones get damaged, but the chargers usually split in half after using it so much. I’ve been through dozens of chargers in the past 5 years and I don’t even know how it happened. The MicFlip is something you don’t want to lose, break or leave at someones house because it’s so damn great.
The good people and MicFlip sent me a cord to try, and I was impressed. Not only is the charging part cool, but the cord felt like unbreakable rope. You know those old school chains with covers that people used as bike chains back in the day? They felt like that, but from the future.
This is a charger you won’t leave at a friend’s house. This is a charger you won’t mishandle. This is the only charger you need because of its a brilliant design for any Android phone. You can pick up the MicFlip now by going to their Indiegogo page right now.
